Flickr uploader won't work

@before.1st.light @after.1st.illumination says:

I renewed my Pro membership for the sole reason of having a photo back up account. Flickr uploader won't work. I have a large Photos library on Mac and it won't upload at all despite the circle arrows showing that it's doing something. Please help.

I'm having the same issue. The uploader hasn't worked for months. It just continually says its "Scanning" my Photos library (MacOS Catalina). Last time I checked on this, the response was "we're working on a fix." Is it fixed and how do I kick off the sync again?

Jungshadow Will Fitzgerald:

Sorry for the trouble you're running into uploading.

We're aware of an issue affecting uploads using the Uploadr on Mac OS Catalina & Big Sur. Our engineering team is currently working on a fix and we'll be sure to update when things are back working as intended.

In the meantime, uploading can continue using the web Uploadr function.

If you're not using the Mac Uploadr, please feel free to send us a message directly so we get some additional details.

Thanks for your patience!
