Last updated March 8, 2012

Uploading photos with Live Camera

With PhotoExplorer you can use the camera on your iPad/iPhone to take pictures, and have them in Flickr just after you took them.

Taking pictures to upload

  1. Tap on Home
  2. From the menu tap on Upload. The upload list will appear, if you have not selected any photos to upload the list will be empty.
  3. To take a live photo, tap on Live Camera, the Camera will appear. You can switch between the front/back camera by tapping on the right corner of the camera.
  4. When you are ready to take a picture tap on the camera button and then tap on Use.
  5. Your picture will be added to the Upload list. Tap anywhere outside the camera to go back to the Upload list.
  6. In the Upload list, you will see a small thumbnail of the photo, a message indicating that the photo has EXIF, and the size of the photo (by default will be the largest available). You can find more information regarding EXIF when uploading here: What happens with EXIF information when uploading photos?
  7. Now that you have photos in the Upload List you can proceed to upload them or you can edit them before uploading.

Editing photos before upload

Before uploading your photos to Flickr, you can modify the photo metadata (i.e. title, caption, tags, sets, groups, etc) or edit the photo with rotation, crops or effects using the Advanced Photo Editor. More information on editing photos can be found in the following two articles:


You can Upload all the photos in the Upload list by tapping on Upload All, or you can select some of the photos in the Upload list:

  1. From the top toolbar, tap on Edit.
  2. Tap on the photos you want to upload. The ones selected will have a check mark.
  3. Tap on the Upload button.
  4. Upload starts, only the photos with check marks will be uploaded on a given batch. You can continue to use PhotoExplorer for other activities.
