PhotoLikr is a photo viewer specially made to let you rate your images and upload them to various online storage accounts powered by Google+, Picasa, Gmail, Minus or PhotoOnWeb.
It offers support for a wide range of file types, such as .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .png and psd. Associations can be made with any of them for quick access.
Installing this program is simple enough, thanks to the fact that only familiar options are bundled with the installer.
At startup, the tool offers to set itself as the default application for opening photo files. However, this option can be disabled.
The interface is represented by a regular window with a clear-cut structure, where you can use a tree view to navigate disk directories and pick a folder whose images you want to load in PhotoLikr.
You can use two arrow buttons to go select the next and preview picture in the directory, as well as click two buttons on the bottom part of the screen for rating the current photograph in a negative or positive way.
After specifying the authentication details for one or more preferred storage accounts, you can easily share the current image, whole folder, or all images matching a specific filter. URLs are created as soon as the pics are online, and you can view a list with the link history.
Furthermore, you can choose the original image resolution for uploading or set a custom one, enable gestures, overwrite any existing files, as well as ask the program to automatically send pictures with low ratings to Recycle Bin or to move the ones with high ratings to a custom location on the disk.
We haven't encountered any stability issues throughout our evaluation, thanks to the fact that PhotoLikr didn't hang, crash or show error dialogs. It uploaded images rapidly while remaining light on system resources.
All in all, this software application sports a practical and straightforward set of options for rating pictures and uploading them to favorite websites, and it can be seamlessly handled by anyone.
