I got last night the above message when trying to upload a book to blurb.
I have to say that I am extremely disappointed in LR with all the problems there are right now. I have worked on this picture and book project for more than 2 months and spent some hundred hours and in addition dealing with the other LR problems like the book module messing up problem and also the crashing during sync issue which has not been solved for weeks.
I have ben a super happy LR user since LR 3 and never had any technical issues until this fall. How is it possible that LR has turned from the best software into to the woorst and most unstable?
Is there anyhting to do regarding this book upload error or just to accept that I have wated a lot of time and will not be able to finish this now so close before the finish line? Please not that this is not my first book, I have made many before without having any problems uloading etc.
Anyway if this fails I think I will be out for LR and will go for another software.
the error message is exactly as in the title "Error uploading book to blurb" and it appeared after about 2/3 of the upload process being completed.
The format is Large landscape which I have used many times and the paper is Proline Pearl.
Page count 215
Thanks for the quick reply.
Is it possible for you to share the catalog[.lrcat] file?
Which we can look into and find the issue.
If possible, Upload it on any drive and share us the link through direct message.
Meanwhile, Please share a screenshot of the error message.
sorry I had to leave now for the office and my iMac with this problem is now at home.
The error message says just the test I posted.
This evening I can upload the catalogue file to dropbix or so for you but then you have to give me your personal mail address I guess or should I post my catalogue file here?
I am really stressed because of this because I use a lot of time and effort to complete this and really need to send these for printing.
Most times in the past week when I try to upload a book to Blurb it never completes; it completes uploading both the cover and the pages but stops at the "Waiting for Blurb Server Processing" step and never completes (I have left it for 8 hours on several occasions). This happens most times I try to upload from LR v7.5 or v8.0, only occasionally does it complete. This wasn't a problem until recently; I have used the book module very extensively ever since it was introduced and I have never had this problem until the past week.
After discussion with Blurb support I generated a pdf and uploaded that to Blurb directly and bypassed LR. This uploads at twice the speed of LR (probably because it uses a local Blurb server whereas LR uses a US server regardless of location or blurb account location?) and completes immediately so there is no problem with my internet connection or my Blurb account; the problem is in the LR/Blurb communication.
I am running Windows 10 (v10.0.17134); LR Classic CC v8.0 and v7.5 (to avoid 2 other bugs in v8.0); both get the same error. i7-6700K with 16GB RAM, loads of free disk space, 15GB RAW cache, etc so no limitations that should cause problems. I have published around 15 books from LR on Blurb in the past without this problem.
