Upload to Flickr

Quick way

To get Shutter to upload to Flickr, you can install a program called Postr by Ross Burton – and then just use ScreenshotOpen with to upload!


  1. Install postr
  2. Use ScreenshotOpen with and select Flickr Uploader


    Select Flickr Uploader from the dropdown list.

  3. That’s it!

    As you can see all three screenshots were exported to Postr. You can now just use Postr to upload.

    After some months, now Shutter stuck on start, showing this message: “Updating upload plugin information” 🙁

    If you want to upload to something other than Flickr, check out IFTTT and use Flickr as the intermediate step. That is, enable the Flickr channel and the channel where you want your photo (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), and create a new recipe using the “new public photo tagged” Flickr trigger. Tag your new screenshots onto Flickr consistently, of course, to match the IFTTT recipe… perhaps: #sharescreen (or something).
