Since I have started using Windows Home Server (WHS) to store my home media and photos, I thought it would be really nice to have a way to automatically synchronize the photos on WHS "Photos" folder to my Flickr account. Since WHS is still in beta, there is not a 3rd party application to do this - so I decided to write PhotoSync for WHS (probably also has something to do with my constant pursuit of learning cool new products and their SDKs).
Some general features & notes:
- PhotoSync will monitor your WHS Photos folder (or any sub folder you select) and automatically upload the contents of that folder (and every sub folder) to your Flickr account.
- Since you get to select the 'base folder' you can, for example, create a /Photos/Private and a /Photos/Public (or /Photos/Flickr) folder in WHS and just point PhotoSync to the /Public folder - this makes sure your public photos go to Flicker and the private ones do not.
- PhotoSync can be configured to automatically upload new photos on any scheduled basis (the minimum right now is every 15 minutes)
- There is a WHS Console GUI Tab to configure everything, and check upload status information.
