Flickr Access
« on: August 06, 2017, 12:42:14 am »
Had a system rebuild and now  cannot get flickr to authorise PM. Every time I press the authorise button in PM it just takes me to the flickr home page. Has something changed at either the PM or Flickr sides so this method no longer works?

Thanks

I have just run into the exact same problem.  A hunt on the web bought up a thread on flickr forums about the problem and flickrs answer was they have changed their authorization protocol and photo mechanic needs to update.

Hello,

We are rebuilding the Flickr uploader to use the updated client authentication method and will be posting a new build here shortly.

Thank you for your patience.

Would this solve the reason I cannot authorize photomechanic with Flickr anymore. Last week I upgraded or downgraded depending how you see it to a new mbp. Right now I am installing software and tried to authorize MP5 with my Flickr account with no joy.
Any idea if this is something related to what I am doing wrong or is this part of the new authentication process.

Thx

The upcoming update should allow you to authenticate and resume the use of the Flickr upload template in Photo Mechanic.

There is nothing that you're doing wrong.  Flickr increased the requirements for authorization recently and Photo Mechanic needs to be updated to accommodate these changes.
