    I'm using iPhoto 8.0.2 and want to upload to Flickr, but the login data are incorrect in iPhoto, and I see no way of changing the info.
    Clicking "Flickr" just shows a message "Login failed - The login details or auth token passed were invalid." and no way to change anything. Same happens if I choose "Flickr" from the menu under "share". :confused:
    Help appreciated! Thanks!!

    Not possible, right?

    Maybe by deleting or changing the preference file?

    Keychain Access

    Just to log it somewhere, the credentials live in your keychain. Open Keychain Access ( in Applications/Utilities/ ) and search for flickr. You should get a '' item that refers to 'IPHPublishServiceFlickr'. Go ahead and delete this item and you should be able to relogin with new user/pass in iPhoto.

    Heck, if you search for IPHPublishServiceFlickr you'd find the right item...

    Actually, just found the proper interface for changing the account - do click on publish to flickr, in the dialog you have the option of reauthenticating to flickr....

    Thanks mimecine :). I deleted the Flickr line in the Keychain access, now it works fine!
    Looking up "IPHPublishServiceFlickr" did not work, neither could I re-authenticate the Flickr uploader through iPhoto.
