What's the best way to work with iPhoto 8.1 and Flickr? Strategies and tips, please!!!

I realize iPhoto can export to flickr, but it seems cumbersome to have to then use flickr to add titles, descriptions and tags. Is there a way to do this in iPhoto? Is there a better way? I used to use Flickr Exporter, but that thing is so buggy! I'd prefer to do all of this in iPhoto, if at all possible.

I'm using iPhoto 8.1 (in other words, the latest version of iPhoto, the one that came with iLife 09).

FlickrExport will bring your titles and such along with your photos.

Seconding FlickrExport. I've been using it for years. Couldn't imagine iPhoto/Flickr w/o it.

FFXporter is free but not as good as FlickrExport. I went back to using Flickr Uploadr. It's not through iPhoto which I know is what youre looking for, but it's pretty excellent nonetheless.

I ponied up the $20 for FlickrExport. So far, I really like it.

...just a quick update to say that, months later, I think FlickrExport is FANTASTIC!
Thanks Majick and birdherder for the tip.

I couldn't agree more.
