- Could you please create a new collection in Lightroom and then try to publish the collection.
- If it does not work, please create a new catalog and then try to publish the collection of Flickr.
- If step 2 does not work , then please uninstall and reinstall Lightroom once, also please try to disable the Anit Virus on the computer if you have any.
OK step one worked. I created a new collection and then published that collection to Flickr. Pictures are up on Flickr in a new album. However, when I then made one modification to the collection (changed a tag on one of the pictures) and told it to re-publish the modified photo it failed with the same error message "Can't update this collection. Could not contact the Flickr web service. Please check your Internet connection."
OK the post was helpful in that I am able to create a new collection and publish. But I still have a problem. Once published I cannot update the collection and re-publish. I can repost all of the above under a new title if needed. But my problem remains.
Could you please try a step here, please create a test catalog and then import some images and then try to upload them to Flickr once.
OK Tanuj I created a new catalog and imported some pictures. I then uploaded those once to Flickr and it worked fine. But having been a software engineer and familiar with debugging software I couldn't stop at one step. So I next added one photo to the collection. So now there was "New Photos to Publish". I hit publish and it added fine. Next I modified a photo changing tags and development items. So now there was "Modified Photos to Re-Publish" and that gave me the same error message as above. Next I added another photo so now I had a New Photo to Publish and Modified Photos to Re-publish. Told it to publish and it failed to upload the modified or the new. I am assuming this failure to upload the new on this test is because the job order is process Modified first and then New and it just stopped when it failed on the modified.
If the above is not what you wanted sorry I will reset to just the upload once.
It seems some issues with the Flickr, I have informed the Lightroom Team and they will contact Flickr and let them know about the issue.
