I wonder if I can sync metadata such as title and description from Flickr to LR without using any third party software, just with built in Flickr Plugin. If so, how can I do it?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Having tried this myself just now, I can't see any way to synchronise the Flickr metadata. The comments are imported to Lightroom, though I have no idea why. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Too bad, because I've edited many titles and descriptions right in the Flickr. Still looking for solution. \$\endgroup\$

This is not possible in LR 3.6 unfortunately.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The Flickr and Lightroom APIs are open. So maybe one day someone is going to write a better sync plugin. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Maybe! I haven't checked this in 4.3, maybe they've done it already.. \$\endgroup\$
