"Author" not written on Flickr pictures

Hey there Erwyn,


great little program, I have used it for a few weeks now. However, I can't for the world figure out why the 'author' metadata is not written onto my flickr images. I have added author and copyright information on all local images, but they simply don't get transferred to my flickr pages during a transfer. Where an I going wrong here?

Hi Ben,

I don't think Flickr has the notion of the author of a picture in their metadata. It only has the implicit notion of an owner of a photo: namely the account that uploaded the picture. So during sync I only update author information for local images if it doesn't have an author set. Only in that case is the author set to the owner of the picture on Flickr.

Regards, Erwyn
