I've been using some different tools for uploading my images to Flickr, but all of them were too slow, resource consuming or GUI dependent. So I went to CPAN, found Flickr::Upload and decided to give a try since it seemed the right tool for the job. The result was amazing! For me, best Flickr uploading tool ever.
I'd like a few more examples on using different auth/key/secret credentials, but I was able to deal with it after skimming the first lines of code.
Anyway, I'm so happy with this module that I decided to package it for Ubuntu and make it publicly available from my account on Launchpad (so my friends or anyone else can install it very easily): launchpad.net/~alex.muntada/+archive
Next step, make it official in Debian and Ubuntu. It's definitely worthwhile.

I was sick of jUploadr*, I couldn't be bothered to keep switching on Windows to use the "real" Flickr Uploadr, and uploading bunches of photos via the web interface was too fiddly. So I installed this module and wrote a script, which is about twenty lines. In a few minutes I had a working command-line photo uploader for Flickr.
[P.S. Note that there is actually an upload script in the distribution, so you don't need to make your own].
* jUploadr grabs core memory to store each photo in full, so if one drags and drops twenty or so large photos onto jUploadr on a normal powered computer, the computer virtually comes to a halt for one hour.

Works nicely, only comment it the docs could have a bit more on the auth_token which got me confused for a while.
Just a little note - set up your API key as desktop API, then use Net-FS-Flickr script to get the auth_token:
flickrfs <key> <secret>
and follow the instructions to get the auth_token back for your sciprt
