I've been using Lightroom's flickr publish plugin successfully for more than a year now. This install and plugin have worked on both Mavericks and Yosemite as recently as November 6th, 2014. On this same install, within the last week, I've been unable to publish new photos from Lightroom 5.7 on Yosemite.

I am receiving the following error across multiple publish attempts on multiple newly created sets:

"Flickr API returned an error message (function flickr.people.getUploadStatus, message Invalid auth token)"

Sounds like your authentication (sign-in) to the service is failing. Try signing out and back in to renew your auth token.

I went ahead and cycled the authorization on the plugin. That seems to have done the trick. Good advice! Thanks.
