Upload the screenshot to your stream as a Jpeg, then open the Share menu (curved arrow, below photo to the right), grab the HTML embed code and paste in a comment on here.

I wonder if the problem could be related to how many groups you are a member of (1668). Perhaps the uploader sometimes has problems with that big of a list.

I never add to groups or albums during the "upload" stage, so I don't know what the UI looks like. Are you able to see all the rest of your groups at the time the Vanda ones are missing?

(P.S. Even if this has any relationship to the problem, I'm not saying it's not still wrong. The uploader should be able to deal with this.)

A month ago I had success posting photos ok into albums. But now the Uploadr does not work, despite clicking around various boxes and its icons. WHERE DOES THE ICON FOR MY FLICKR LIVE ON MY PHOTOSTREAM PAGE? It used to be so easy with that little cloud icon at the top right I have spent two days trying to resolve this from Settings to every which way! I am VERY disgusted with my PRO account, and do not post often (no Groups either).

Oh, there is another problem: My profile photo got changed when I was mucking around in Camera Roll trying to find what the heck that is! I could not fix that after many, many attempts with the Help steps.

It's there, top right, to the left of the bell icon.

How far is your browser zoomed in?

Another possibility: are your running add ons like Adblock? Those can interfere with page elements.

What happens when you try?

Flickr upload has been awful for years. Doesn't work 50% of the time. I will be moving to a different platform.

Getting deeper in frustration. Cannot even find where Settings is to change the profile photo.

And of course, no luck finding the cloud OR bell as was recommended. I have spent way too much time on this. Not running ad ons, and only one group for a music group.

I tried uploadr again, but every one of my Pictures folders going WAY back were checked! I had to go down the whole list and deselect each one. AND the one I want to upload would not do so when checked, as the Uploadr popup menu has NO simple way to do it.

It sounds like you might be using the mobile app, in which case I cannot help.

But if you are talking about the Flickr web site, all of the things that you are looking for -- Settings, Bell, Cloud -- are at the top right corner of every Flickr page.

Not using Mobile app, only my laptop. I am going to uninstall the Uploadr and reinstall today and see what happens as those Icons are not on my flickr page (yet).

But JUST opened my flickr Photostream and clicked on STATS to see what happens there. At the RIGHT profile icon (which will be changed next). The drop down menu appeared showing number of items, UPLOAD OUR PHOTOS, plus FlickrMail (3), Settings, Help and Log Out. I will attempt to UPLOAD PHOTOS and see what happens.

After days of searching around to 1) relearn uploadr and how to find it, and 2) changing my Profile photo...today success and lots of note taking to find my way (and back). I do not post often, and because of constant changes in the flickr "improvements", it is difficult for me. Perhaps I can do better in future. I do not dare get rid of my notebook!
