To do this you need to authenticate the application once as the "account" you want to store the photos in, and then store the authentication token in your application.

However, besides the obvious security risks in doing this, unless the users are handing over full copyright of the images they are uploading then this is not how you are meant to use Flickr and is against the community guidelines and terms of service.
