Why are only some of my photos being uploaded

BillyBoy416 says:

Help please,

Have been hobby user of Flickr for years, have uploaded over 30,000 photos over the years with no problems using the older official Flickr uploaders.

I dislike the "newest" version (several years old now) as I don't want photos uploaded automatically and I like to pick which albums/photos I'm going to upload.

So I manually try and choose which albums I want to upload. This has never worked well and is much slower than the old uploaders

Over the past few moths I have found that if I select an album either on my desktop or elsewhere, then select to upload, the uploader either says "no new photos to upload" or starts to upload but only then uploads a few of the photos in that album and not all.

This is really starting to annoy me from what was a simple process to being a pain and I can find no other way of uploading my pictures once Flickr decides they are not "new" photos.

Can anyone offer a any suggestions to resolve please as very disappointed with Flickr especially the price we now have to pay !!
