Introducing the ZoomIn Desktop Uploader – no web browser required.  The Uploader is our take on the very impressive, open source, Flickr Uploadr.  (We left the “e” in the name of our version.)

Zoomin Desktop Uploader

Available both for the Mac and PC, the Uploader lets you add a bunch of photos by simply dragging and dropping your photos into a window like the one above.

In Windows, an ‘Upload to ZoomIn’ option also gets added to the Auto Play menu and you will see it when you insert a memory card from your camera or a CD containing photos into your computer.

The Uploader has many features designed to make getting photos into your albums at ZoomIn a breeze.  You can also work completely offline until you are ready to transfer the photos.  It supports organizing photos into different albums within the same batch, adding photo tags, place tags and setting privacy options.

Most importantly, it can resize your photos before they get uploaded, so they get transferred really fast.  If you do this, remember to keep a backup of your photos somewhere on your computer.   Also, if you plan on buying photo gifts like calendars, you should select the largest size or skip resizing completely.
