    Anyone else having trouble getting photos to upload to Flickr from their phone or tablet? Everything seems normal when I’m sending them but they never appear in my Flickr photostream.

    Yes. For last 2 weeks. When I try to upload from my Android phone, they don't appear in my photostream.

    I need to try 3 or 4 times.

    Sometimes the photos appear about 30 minutes later - multiple times. But other times they never appear.

    Yes same issue. I’ve started uploading everything as private so I can cancel out any duplicate photos! I’m going to email their support since I’m now paying them! I never had this issue with my free account.

    Haven't had issues uploading as I normally only up load from computer, but I've had trouble when trying to view photos from my tablet. Both mine and those of others take awhile to load some times.

    Yes, I have that issue too. Some photos don't load when viewing, and just get a white square.

    I didn't mind issues when it was free, but after my photos were held for ransome unless I paid for Pro, I now expect half decent service.

    It sounds as though Flickr is having some serious problems, now that they have made so many changes.

    Ive always had problem but I have crappy internet. Not long ago, I uploaded an album using Mozilla and opened up the scripts view... it times out on larger files, I forget the time frame but once I scaled them down, the album was successful. Kind of defeats the purpose IMO. I won't be renewing. Its got progressively worse every year. If I go somewhere with a strong internet connection, it works relatively fine. I dont have that issue with Amazon Drive but the interface is seriously lacking.

    I have no problem uploading from the desktop. However it takes forever for someone's Flickr web page to load. Some days I just give up trying to view.
