Flickr export plugin currently doesn't enable exporting of original non-resized/non-recompressed image.
Even when resizing of image is disabled, the image is still recompressed and thus quality suffers.
Provide a way to upload original photos to flickr.

Patch adding requested feature
This is by no means perfect I am sure.
I can see a problem with filetypes that flickr doesn't support (e.g. trying to upload original RAW photo).
There is no reason to resize if user did not select to resize at all.
For RAW, we will extract preview image anyhow.
I will try to factorize this code (as we have the same/similar in other plugins)
Just to clarify: If user doesn't select "resize" then no resizing is done by flickr plugin. What it does is recompress that same image (preserving dimensions, etc) thus adding jpeg artifacts (and possibly making the image bigger). So I guess what you wanted to write was:
"There is no reason to recompress if user did not select to resize at all."
yes! thanks for correcting me.
Just checking...is there any progress on this? I have recently updated kipi-plugins and my patch still works even for 1.4.0 and trunk versions. I am attaching a bit improved patch (whitespace cleanup & resize/recompress options are hidden when "send original" checkbox is selected).
Can someone with permissions change this bug to version from 0.8.0 to 1.4.0 please?
