    Hi folks,
    Anyone having trouble with location data and titles not displaying properly in Flickr when exported from iPhoto or Aperture.

    Neither app is transferring the location data or Flickr isn't reading it.
    Also
    There's a different behaviour in how Flickr translates the title or file name.

    If I share from iPhoto the title field on Flickr is blank.
    If I add a title in Aperture and share Flickr displays the version number!

    You can see the photos here. http://flic.kr/p/cZLaAj
    and here for Aperture http://flic.kr/p/cZKZaE

    Do you guys think its a Flickr or Apple issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know why you're having trouble with the titles, but I do know how to fix the location issue.

    Under the Advanced section of the preferences in Aperture there is a box for including location data, make sure it's ticked. There is probably something similar in iPhoto as well.

    Many thanks emorydunn. There was a check box under advanced in both apps.
    I feel such a wally (idiot):eek:

    I submitted a bug report to Flickr and Apple re the titles.

    Again,thank you.:)

    No problem. I was confused by the same issue when I started using Aperture. I also get temporarily confused every time I've done a clean instal of Aperture and then do a face-palm and remember the setting.
