    Any advice on the best utility for uploading to Flickr from iPhoto?

    Flickr offers their uploader for Mac, but also mentions that FlickrExporter for iPhoto is available ($25) as an iPhoto plug-in... now the current Macworld says iP2F is a great little app available for $15.

    The company that makes FlickrExport for iPhoto also sells FlickrExporter for Aperture, and offers 50% off that app if you bought the iPhoto version.

    I'm assuming these plug-ins are a step up from Flickr's own uploader--
    anyone have any suggestions?

    Not really. They do all the same things (tagging, placing in groups, etc.) but they are just a matter of convenience as you can upload from within your photo organizing app.

    I use the Aperture Flickr uploader and it works well. It does crash Aperture on occasion, however.

    I use Lightroom, and I set the Flickr Uploader as an additional external editor.

    So, when I export my photos, I set my settings, click export and they open in the Flickr Uploadr with all meta data attached.

    I have never used iPhoto's plugin, but there is a free trial right?

    My general "To Flickr" workflow is:

    Lightroom -> Export to "uploads folder" -> Drag to flickr uploadr -> Upload -> Drag photo from "uploads folder" to "exported folder".

    Works pretty well.
