This morning F-Stop version 4.0.5 went live. This is a minor release that enables F-Stop to open Flickr links directly. This function is useful when you receive Flickr links via email and you want to open them within F-Stop.
Links supported by F-Stop are the ones generated using share function from Flickr.com as depicted in the following image.
N.B. Currently short URLs are NOT supported.
To open a link using F-Stop just press CMD+O or “Open Flickr URL” menu item under File Menu. A simple window will appear.
Paste Flickr URL and click ok. If F-Stop is managing multiple accounts, you can specify the one to use. This is a needed step if photos pointed by the Flickr link are not public and only one specific account has the needed grants to view the photos.
