Photo processing / Flickr toolchain for Mac?

I have a bunch of photos I haven't uploaded to Flickr. Why? Because it's a pain with the tools I have now. I want to be able to color-correct, title, caption, tag, and upload photos from my Mac as fast as possible.

I'm looking for one to three apps/scripts that I can use to:
- Color-correct (like Photoshop's "Auto Levels" command) photos a whole directory at a time--if it could do multiple directories at once, that'd be gravy, but it's not a high priority
- Assign sets, groups, titles, captions, and tags if desired, and
- Reliably upload them to Flickr.
Everything I've used for this has been wanting. iPhoto doesn't let you color-correct multiple pictures at once and ate some of my titles between the time I wrote them and the time I uploaded them, 1001
sometimes crashes in the middle of a long upload (with unpredictable results) and can't do color-correction anyway, and all the Gimp
scripts I've seen for this have been inefficient, omitted the Flickr part, or both. I'm also not crazy about 1001's practice of putting all your tags into a giant list, and I haven't had very good luck with the Flickr Uploadr.
I'm on a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard (10.6.6). My total budget is $0.00, although I could be persuaded to go up to $10 or so for a really good
