Photo Grabbr 1.5b

Vince Tagle:

I keep track of a lot of Flickr accounts and every so often, I come across a photoset that’s just so brilliant, I want to keep a local copy for myself. Unfortunately, it’s rather cumbersome to open each photo individually, save the size that I want, and then rename the file to match the title of the photo. Even more unfortunate is that as far as I could tell, there wasn’t anything for Mac OSX that would help simplify this job. So the only thing left to do was to write Photo Grabbr so that I could use it for myself.

It’s a handy utility that I’ve been using for years, at least until Flickr blocked API access over HTTP. With this update, Photo Grabbr now works over SSL.

After installing version 1.5b, I was getting “Invalid auth token” errors whenever I tried to search. The developer suggested removing the preferences and re-authorizing my account. I didn’t want to reset all the preferences, since I wanted to preserve my list of recent users. Issuing these commands:

defaults delete com.malarkeysoft.PhotoGrabbr "Authenticated User ID"
defaults delete com.malarkeysoft.PhotoGrabbr "Authentication token"

deleted just the necessary preferences.
