Review: PictureSync lets you quickly upload batches of photos to the Internet

Sync photos and videos to the popular Web services while preserving metadata using PictureSync for Mac.

For those users who have and want to share tons of images and videos, PictureSync for Mac's features, design, and instructions make it a very useful tool for batch uploading of image files.

PictureSync for Mac, available as freeware, starts with a tutorial that opened automatically to prompt the user to enter log-in information for sites where photos would be uploaded. A program menu then came up, which explicitly stated there was no technical support available. This could make less experienced users uneasy, but we didn't experience any issues that would require support in our tests. The main program, itself, had a basic menu with few graphics. A button brings up a box where users can select photo folders. A second button for exporting brings up a menu where users can select from a number of major photo and social networking sites such as Flickr, Facebook, Photobucket, and others. After entering log-in information, the photo uploaded to the program quickly and cleanly. Apart from being able to upload images to online services, the user can also copy images and videos to different folders on their Mac and connect to FTP. During testing the program performed assigned tasks without any glitches or bugs.

While functional for photo uploads, PictureSync for Mac will be useful mostly for users who use one of the online image sharing services supported by this program as it can significantly speed up the process when uploading multiple images at once.
