Photos don't show up in albums

Tania Veitch Tourism Photographer says:

Hi there,

When I try to add photos to an album they don't stay. I am saving them after I add them in the Organizer. But the changes don't stick.

I've tried to add photos over and over but the same problem occurs. Nothing stays.

Has this happened to anyone? What was the solution?

Hi Tania,
I see the same issue, if after "saving the album", then returning to the album, some times about 20% of the album photos are missing.
Some times the SAVE saves all album photos, and some times SAVE only saves 80% of the photos.
I have seen this issue over the last serval months and assumed the servers were overloaded.
I hope FLICR staff reads this and offers a FIX.

Thanks for reporting.

We're aware of an issue that was previously reported in the forum regarding a significant lag when adding photos to an album.

Just to clarify, in these cases now being reported, do the photos ever show up in the albums?

Not sure if this is the same. I upload 2 photos and specify the album I want them in. They very quickly appear in camera roll but do not appear in the album. If I click info on the photo in camera roll it says it is the the album.
