    Recently, I noticed I've been having a problem with the flickr uploader in Aperture 3. Sometimes, it doesn't even want to upload a picture and other times it randomly just deletes a picture from my flickr. Couple days ago, I uploaded two pictures through flickr since Aperture didn't want to upload them and new they are gone.

    Am I the only one having such a problem? What can I do to prevent this? I really like the flickr uploader as it speeds up my sharing and saves me some time.

    I think for Aperture created Flickr sets you have to do everything through Aperture since it syncs the two...thats probably why your photos got deleted. I haven't experienced any troubles with the flickr integration myself. As long as I keep hitting the sync button after adding pictures to the set, it uploads what I tell it to.

    That makes sense. Even though once instead of deleting the picture, it added it into my Aperture library. Now I just have to figure out why it won't let me upload some photos. Is there a restriction on the size you can upload or something?

    Are you using a free Flickr account or a Pro account? Free accounts do have restrictions, but Pro accounts are unlimited

    Edit: Just looked at your Flickr link and I see it's a Pro account - strange, I'm not sure what's causing your issues. There is a fairly active Aperture group on Flickr that may be able to help you though - http://www.flickr.com/groups/aperture_users/ Maybe search through discussions or post your own topic if you don't find anything

    Yeah I upgraded to a Pro account because I thought that was the problem. Turns out it didn't help.

    Thanks a lot for the flickr group, had no idea there was one. I'll try asking there.
