I uploaded a new photo a few hours ago using the android app and it won't show in the app. I thought at first that it didn't upload, but it does show on my laptop. About half my photos are missing in the app and have white space. And when I refresh it is the same photos that are always missing. But if I click on one of the white space images, it then shows up as usual. Except for the newly uploaded one which gives me a solid black image. I can download photos to my phone though, even the new one that won't show.

I will wait and see if things return to normal after a bit. It seems they usually do.

Are you trying to download all 3.340 pictures in one go? Perhaps, this is too much for the phone, and if it isn't connected to your Wifi. And when you could do it before, this could be because of not so many pictures on Flickr.

Try to download 200 pictures. When they are downloaded and OKAY, go to the next 200 pictures and so on, until you have them all.

YES! Takes time, but better, when having a lot of pictures.

Or go to a computer and try from this...

I don't think, your problem is the same as "Images by APW's" problem. You have problems with UPloading TO Flickr.

"Images by APW" have problems with DOWNloading FROM Flickr.

I have this problem too. Last night I uploaded a picture and I could only see it on my pc. If I log in to my flickr app, it just appears to be a white box. Now, I have uploaded 8 new images and all of them are just white boxes, even on PC.

I think flickr needs to give us some answers about what is happening.

Midnight-Blue says:

I still can't see about half of my photos. (The same photos as before.) I still have to click on the white space for the photo to show. Except that the last photo I uploaded is still not showing at all. Usually the problem has sorted itself out by now, as it has been two days since I first noticed it.

I cannot download to my phone either and some images are also blank. Now auto uploader will also not work and if I try and correct this in the settings the app freezes in the uploader page and I have to delete the app and reload it.

I had the same problem to download to my Iphone yesterday and it was fixed today, I did nothing, but many other unstable issues remain. I just join in December and I wish I didn’t.

Still was having the same problems in the android app even after giving it four days to clear up. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. And voila, problems fixed.

I also cannot download my images from the app (for over 7 months). Before the changes i could download images from the mobile phone browser but now i cannot even do that ever since camera roll has been taken off . Starting to use dropbox instead. Tad annoyed.

I would check that the app still has permission to access the device storage.

Usually settings, apps, app permissions - check storage permission is on.

Since none of the usual suspects will help.

1. Use the app to try and take a photo

2. There are three options. The last option allows Flickr to access your memory, Click "Yes"

You can now save photos

This an issue since the app had to be reloaded after the change over and if you have not already taken a photo with your camera, the default is NO.
