24x7digital on Wednesday introduced PhotoCopy 1.0, a new mirroring utility to store your iPhoto image library on the Flickr photo sharing service. It costs $20, and a demo is available.
PhotoCopy lets you select individual iPhoto albums to share, and it uploads all of the photos and arranges them in matching sets. Metadata including title, date, time, rating, keywords and description is also copied to Flickr.
PhotoCopy can compare the current iPhoto library with your Flickr account and figures out what changes to make to keep them both in sync. This way, you’ll have an offsite backup if anything should happen to your iPhoto library or your Mac.
PhotoCopy requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, 5.2MB hard disk space, iPhoto 6 or iPhoto 7, a Flickr account and Internet access.
