When I try to publish images to my flickr account with LR 4.1 (final, released 30th May) it fails.
When updating my top level photostream the message is:
Can’t update this collection.
An internal error has occurred: Invalid at the top level of the document.
When updating a flickr set made from a Smart Collection:
Could not contact the Flickr web service. Please check your Internet connection.
The publish service in LR that is failing was created in under LR3 and upgraded as upgrades came out.
I have successfully re-authorized lightroom against Flickr.
A newly created publish service to the same Flickr account works (at least for one test image).
Any ideas? Do I have to start again with a new service in LR?
Lightroom 4.1 64 bit on Windows 7 64 bit.
You have certainly a carriage return in your caption metadata
Yeah... adding a photo with carriage returns in the caption to the new publish service breaks the flickr upload for that stream as well.
Very very annoying bug for anyone who puts anything signfiicant text in a captions
Out of time to experiment with this more today to confirm it by moving images out of my normal upload stream.
This is appalling and, as Stéphane had pointed out, I have previously reported it against the release candidate.
It would be appreciated if you can confirm that this is the cause of the error simply to add more substance to the observation and it would also be appreciated if you could add your vote against the problem report in the link above.
Note I think if you are publishing or republishing a bunch of photos it is not necessarily the first in the thumbnail grid that causes the error.
PS - Edit ... whoops, we crossed in the post - still worth adding you vote though if you want it fixed.
Don't forget to add your vote against the problem reported in the link above.
