Courier is a cool application for your Mac that makes it really easy to send a bunch of media to a bunch of destinations.
Image you’ve ever come back from a trip somewhere with a whole bunch of pictures you want to share online. You have a dozen pictures and you want to post them to your Facebook account, but you also want to post them to Flickr and TwitPic so that different people in and around your life can see them.
Courier lets you set up “envelopes” that serve as presets for a lot of the most common places you might want to distribute photos, videos, and other files. And, as presets, you can set up one envelope to send video to your YouTube and Vimeo accounts and another to send to YouTube, Vimeo and Flickr.
Courier supports file transfers to Amazon S3, Ember, Facebook, Flickr, FTP, Vimeo and YouTube. RealMac Software has offered an extensible plug-in API so that developers can create their own plug-ins for their services to support Courier users—there are already plug-ins for TwitPic and CloudApp.
The feature I really like, is that Courier adds all your envelopes with their specific gallery and privacy settings to your Services menu so you can just select all the files you want to send in Finder and fire them off—check out the video below to see how it’s done.
Once the files are uploaded, Courier makes it really easy to share the news with the links you need right at your fingertips.No Flash? No problem—click here!»
