Smugglr Flickr -> SmugMug / SmugMug API Question . . .
Hi!

First, the two main questions regarding modifications made to Smugglr to add automated photo rotation and the SmugMug API:

(1) should photo operations such as rotation using the SmugMug API to be applied immediately after upload?
(2) if not, how can one know when it is "safe" to apply them?

Now the background ...

I've got a bunch of images to be imported from Flickr, many of which I manually rotated using Flickr itself. In this case, thankfully, Flickr has the rotation information available via its API. However, if I use Smugglr alone, the rotations aren't preserved.

One workaround is to "reinvent the wheel" and write a script to go and obtain the data from Flickr and do
the rotations on SmugMug. In this case, I also have to have some reliable way of knowing which Flickr photo maps to which SmugMug photo.

So, instead of "reinventing the wheel" this way, I decided to try directly adding this functionality to Smugglr such that it obtains the photo rotation information from Flickr and, after the uploadFromURL call completes, does a rotation (if necessary, in the completion handler). Sadly, while although the API rotation operation is performed using the Flickr rotation data and does succeed, the rotation is not applied. However, if one waits until processing on the photos is complete, however, the API rotation op's do succeed. (Thus, it would seem that the photo operations don't seem to be queued.)

I'm wondering, even if one were to write this functionality as a standalone app which uploads the photos and then does the rotation in a second stage, how can one know how long to wait between the stages -- that is, at what point applying a rotation will actually work (e.g., after uploadFromURL). Since I can't find this information in the API docs, I'm a bit stuck.

It's also possible that I botched something in using the API in this regard, but I doubt it since I can manually call the API rotation method after processing is complete (as verified manually) and have the rotation be performed properly.

I'm, of course, happy to provide the modified Smugglr.js script if it's of aid to anyone.

Thanks!

John

Is Smuggler going to be updated?

This thread must be dead.

For anyone who stumbles over this, it did install on FF v8 and works fine.

Hullo!

I tried using Smugglr & it wouldn't work. I'm trying to import photos from Flickr. I'm using Firefox 17.0.1. I get a blank page in the area where it asks me for Flickr login details :/ Anyone have any ideas?

Not working on FF 19.0.2.....Stuck on 'creating folders' (1 of 107) for the last 30 minutes.
Should I just do it on some PC that has an older version of FireFox.
I cannot stand Photobucket with their latest round of idiotic changes.
I assume there is going to be a HUGE exodus in a near future.


I tried to is Migratr, but it was a waste as I do not feel like re-creating 107 folder for 4300 pictures.

Hope this SmuggLr migrating tool is fixed soon and compatible with latest version of FireFox.

I am in the process of evaluating whether to make the switch from Phanfare to SmugMug given the uncertainty currently surrounding Phanfare. I just tried transferring some random albums using Smugglr, and while it seems to work, it is giving every one of my galleries a title of 'Main Section'. I see why it's doing it - it's putting the year in the category, and then the Phanfare Album name into the subcategory, and then taking the section name from Phanfare (since it allows sections per album) and putting it in the title. The problem is with Phanfare if you have an album with only one section, it automatically gets the name 'Main Section'. Phanfare doesn't even allow you to change it. Why wouldn't it put the album name in the Gallery title? Ideally, I think I would want the year in the Category field (which is doing), and the Phanfare album name in the Gallery title, and no subcategory. If Smugglr can't do that, is there an easy way for me to move the subcategory name to the gallery title in SmugMug, or will I have to do each gallery individually? We would be talking about 100's and 100's of albums coming over from Phanfare, so I'm not about to do that.

I communicated with SmugMug team and allerted them that the tool is basically ' not working'.
After several back and forth email between my and them, I was informed that they are
in touch with the developer of SmuggLr and that 'it takes time;....oh well....

I wish they realized the sense of urgency !!
With the latest idiotic changes at Photobucket, SmuggMug 'could' gain hundreds
of fleeing Photobucket customers....but they better address the 'importing issue' fast !

Same here. Haven't heard back but they did extend my trial a few days being I'm having trouble with Picasa Web imports.

Managed to get 70 of the 88 albums transferred. Can't get the rest, just empty galleries. Oh well.

Having Problems with SmuggLr Application
I'm getting setup on SmugMug to hold our high school lacrosse team's game pictures. I tried using SmuggLr to bring over several folders of pictures from Picasa and it stopped for several hours at the same spot (11 of 31 folders, 1940 of 4899 pictures). After no further progress, I cancelled out of SmuggLr. I found that 11 folders did in fact get transferred over to SmugMug with their pictures. I have since tried to restart the process, but every time when I enter the Picasa login info it (SmuggLr) says invalid password info. I enter the exact same password as I did originally, but not able to get past the invalid password message. Can someone give me some idea of what may be happening (am I doing something wrong?) and how to correct. The application seems to be a good idea when it works, but it has only worked once (partly) for me.

I'm having the exact same problem.

One thing that helps for the sake of figuring out what has uploaded is to go to your homepage and then after that URL type a slash / and the year. So mine would be say http://tbt.smugmug.com/2007 if I wanted to see the picts for 2007..

Since you are looking at the category, 2007, all of the subcategories are displayed. Since the subcategories are the phanfare album name it gives you a nice list of what smugglr mananged to get over for that year.

I'm also having a huge problem with just getting smugglr to work.

Is this a phanfare problem or a firefox problem? I'm guessing firefox as phanfare has stagnated for 3 or 4 years but fire fox seems to come up with a new version every other week or so.

If firefox is the issue is there a preferred version of firefox to use with smugglr?

Thanks!

For those having issues with failures:

I've found that Smugglr is smart enough to realize an image is already uploaded.

So my technique right now is just to run smugglr, fail, run smugglr, fail and so on, telling smugglr to transfer all of the files on each iteration and not bothering to keep track as to what has transfered.

Can anyone tell me how smugglr actually transfers the files? Does it consume my ISP's bandwidth or is all done on the cloud? Do I need to have my browser open etc. I've 150 Gigs to transfer .... maybe

Thanks

How do I run Smugglr?
I have never used a FireFox add-on before. I installed Smugglr but I can't figure out how to run it.

Smugglr and the revamped Smugmug
Ever since I 'went live' with the updated version of SmugMug, when I use Smugglr to copy a single folder of images from Flickr, it creates a new gallery on Smugmug instead of putting the images in the existing gallery of the same name. This worked just fine before the revamp, but now Smugglr is creating a new gallery every time and the problem with this is that it doesn't have the same settings as I had put on the existing one.
