        flickr uploader is NOT uploading new pictures in MacOS Photos application :(
        This is a pay for service application. I deleted the Flickr uploader application, deleted all references to it, restarted, reinstalled. Seemed to work fine for a few days then stopped uploading pictures from MacOS Photos.

        Pro user. Same problem since updating to Sierra.

        Temporary workaround: manually uninstall then download and reinstall uploadr. It doesn't work for long: I have done this three times already. Follow instructions to manually uninstall here https://www.uninstallmacapp.com/flickr-uploadr-3-1-removal.html. At least you can catch up on your backlog.

        PLEASE MEND UPLOADR... IT IS WHY I OPTED FOR A PAYING SUBSCRIPTION !

        Are there any staff members monitoring this community or has Yahoo abandoned supporting Flickr?

        Thanks

        I have had Photos for over a year now (Beta version) and Flickr uploader hasn't been working since then and not now even I have the official version. This is ridiculous, I am a paying Flickr customer and can't even upload my pictures.

        Yahoo is looking as a poor partner for his clients. It’s really shameful that so little feedback and care are undertaken by a company that is not even able to protect data from its users.

        Flickr Uploadr, version 1.0.1398, is definitely buggy on MacOS Sierra 10.12.3: it does not take into consideration any *new* elements from the Photos app.

        Is that so difficult to fix? Is there anybody there? Pssst there are paying clients here!

        Also, doesn't work for me.

        Flickr Uploadr on Mac doesn't upload any new photos from Photos app.
        MacOS Sierra 10.12.2

        This issue has been outstanding for months. The Uploadr is a paid feature, as a paying customer i expect it to work. There are many posts on the help forum for example: https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157678224633805/ and https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157674430973475/ .

        The Flickr Uploadr page states that "Mac OS X 10.7 or later" is required, yet doesn't work on OSX Sierra 10.12.2.

        I have also reached out to the Flickr Twitter team, however they have not provided any answers.

        Please address this urgently.

        Thanks

        Just had my 'MacBookPro' updated to Apple's Sierra OS and the 'Uploadr' no longer works from 'Photos'. Frustrating to say the least.

        @Yahoo (URGENT)

        On macOS Sierra, Flickr Uploadr offers us to upload the content of our... iPhoto Library and not Apple Photos' content. If you don't understand where the *problem* is, the problem is WITH YOU.

        My Apple Photos Library is on an external drive. Flickr Uploadr worked flawlessly on El Capitan.
        I've still 6 months left before my Flickr subscription expires. Wondering whether you're planning to solve the problem at all...

        I have the same issue using the uploader with Safari and Photos. I select the photos to upload, but when I attempt to upload them, i just get "x photos have timed out" over and over and over and over and over and over again, no matter how many times I click retry.

        I don't have a Mac and yet today I am having trouble uploading my photos to my group. The "Add a photo" doesn't work. It seems to be stuck in the middle of the other instructions.
