[Investigating] Uploadr + Big Sur not working //

Isaak Dury says:

The new Mac OS - Big Sur seems to have broken the Flickr Uploadr app

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that this is a critical part of my workflow and also a big reason why I pay the annual fee to Flickr - it automates the backing up of my photos when I plug in my phone etc.

Seems it's not the only company with broken apps on the back of this update and probably more so when the new M1 Macs rollout.

Hope an update can be released soon!

Thanks for reporting & sorry for the frustration.

We are aware of the Mac Uploadr issue for our members who have recently upgraded to Big Sur. We're currently investigating solutions & I'll be back with updates as they arise.

In the meantime, uploading can still be done through the web.

Thanks for your patience as we work to get this resolved.

It's only been a couple of days, it might take a bit longer for them to interface with a new system. Flickr usually report back when they have a solution and rarely before.

Hoping for an update's not as if BigSur hasn't been in beta for months. Flickr should have been ahead of the game on this.

I have the same problem with the Flickr Uploadr. I recently upgraded to Big Sur and the Flickr Uploadr is constantly crashing. The app opens and then immediately crashes. So it is useless for me right now. Please fix soon, this is the main reason I pay for the Flickr Pro subscription.
