Can't upload photos from my native camera app

Jack White2 says:

Whenever I try to upload photos from my native camera app (using the 'share' button and then selecting Flickr in the list of apps), they never arrive in my photostream. These problems started when I started using my new Google Pixel, although I did get it to work on some occasions with this phone.

The upload works fine when I use the Flickr app to select images from my phone. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Yeah, I get the same on my Pixel. Go through the share process, name, description, etc but when I check the camera roll nothing's being uploaded. Although, sometimes if I upload multiple images at once it decides to occasionally work, but not always.

I usually end up resorting to using the desktop web site in a mobile browser to upload. Not a great experience.

I am sorry to hear you both are having trouble with uploading from the native camera app on your Google Pixel. May I have you check your photo format and check to see if HEIF photos mode on? If so, try turning this mode off to see if this helps.

If you continue to run into trouble, contact support directly to continue troubleshooting. https://help.flickr.com/contact

I am having issues with uploading a photo from the iOS camera roll on my iPhone. The sharing choices on the photo no longer display the Flickr App. Uploading from the Flickr iOS App using the + button also does not lead to a successful upload. {Edit: It is working now. The problem appears to have been resolved}.

Doesn't have heif for images on a Pixel 3, only for video. I'm uploading jpgs, or attempting to. Occasionally it works, most times it doesn't. But I can't tell if it's the phone, the app, or Flickr. And it's not just the native camera app. Sharing from F-Stop image gallery fails as well.
