Flickr upload is a terrible pile of garbage. It is terribly written requires manually restarting regularly because connection was lost and uploads the same image 5 times in a row (every time the connection breaks), please write some robust code, it is incredibly annoying how poorly implemented this feature is

Can’t update this collection.
Could not contact the Flickr web service. Please check your Internet connection.

It NEEDS automatic retry, and deleting multiply uploaded pictures at the VERY VERY LEAST, it's 2015, this shouldn't be a request it should be standard in ANY http-based tool

If you can't get it working, see here for an alternative: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

It would be better if the built-in Flickr plugin just worked for everyone, but it doesn't.

Thanks for the solution, but it is absolutely mind-boggling that Adobe cannot make a decent plugin themselves. With so many free options available, Lightroom is losing appeal rapidly.

Been using the Flickr plug-in for years, never had a single issue. Go figure.
