What I use is KFlickr. It does a good work on the batch mode, however
the pictures are uploaded on the reverse order. This is usually a pain
in the ass since I haven't found time or motivation to research more
deeply, if this were fixed, KFlickr will completely rock.

In anyway, any other interface I've tried sucks too much.
