To install Frogr open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mariospr/frogr
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install frogr
To start Frogr press Alt+F2 and type:frogr
Some features are:
The latest stable version of Frogr (0.6) currently features a basic -yet effective- flickr uploader:
Allow to upload pictures to flickr, specifying details such as title, description, tags, visibility, content type, safety level and whether the to “show up on global search results”, both individually or to several pictures at once.
Allow uploading pictures located in remote machines, through typically supported protocols (SAMBA, SSH, FTP…).
Allow sorting pictures by title and date taken, besides the default order (“as loaded”).
Allow adding tags to pictures, opposite to just set them through the ‘details’ dialog.
Allow setting specific licenses to pictures right from the desktop.
