  1. Photo travel planning

    Hi Flickr Team! This is an idea how to improve the Flickr service and to create value add for people / photographers planning a photo trip: In addition to text comments and faves there should be another button which adds selected geo tagged images automatically to a map ( e.g. from Here) . After having finished adding several images to this background map the result is a gpx trail with all the individual selected images in addition. So it will be easy to plan a furture trip to the same locations other FLickr users have been before. Such a feature…

    • Statistics error, what are we paying Pro prices for??

      Statistics are not correctly reconciling a days activity. Way out of Whack from views on photo to what is counted. Been steadily degrading for several days now. Today is worst. What is being done to fix this?

      • Limit the number of groups each photo can be added to

        Many photos are added to as many as 1,000 groups, even if the photos are completely irrelevant to the groups. This has become a huge problem for group administrators, requiring either a queue or constant attention to what is in the group.

        There used to be a limit to the number of groups any one photo could belong to. Eliminating that limit drastically increased spammers ability to mass share their content. Please restore that limit.

        • FLICKR NEEDS A DUPLICATE FINDER

          FLICKR NEEDS A WORLD CLASS DUPLICATE FINDER
          So I have just upgraded to the PRO as I have decided that FLICKR will be the reference library for all the family photos. I had already uploaded about 30K images (which took days - but I expected that). from my mac. However I then decided that I would upload any images on my wife's laptop and all the phones. Unfortunately despite the fact that FLICKR says it doesn't upload duplicates a good number have slipped through the net. On my mac it's easy I just fire up PHOTOSWEEPER and I can easily…

          • Make Explore Great Again

            Maybe make the criteria to get into Explore less opaque?

            Flickr guards this like it's KFC's seven spices, but that just frustrates users over seemingly senseless, unstated rules. If photos with borders are not permitted, why not state that? If adding photos to lots of groups lowers its viability, why not tell users that? It's ridiculous.

            No wonder people resort to following thousands of accounts for exposure - that seems to be the only surefire way to hit Explore, while everyone else's photos are only seen by their followers and people who browse group pools.

              • View latest 5 images from all my groups, on one page.

                A way to view 5 or so images from all my groups, on one page.

                Groups is how I find new people to follow, I believe this is how the Flickr community also flourished. Surface the images!

                • Sort photos as I want them

                  I'm brand new to Flickr, and already irritated with it. My whole point to upload here was to post my pictures as I want them and share them. But the only sort options I see are Date Taken, or Date Uploaded. That's utterly useless. If there's another option, I haven't found it.
                  If I can't order photos in a way that makes sense as I choose, I may as well stick to posting them on Facebook.

                  • Subscription Renewals

                    When you send an email reminding me that my subscription is due for renewal, it would be good customer service to include the cost.

                    It is not very professional or customer friendly to send, what is in effect, a bill, without stating the actual cost.

                      • Add like (or heart) near favs button

                        I'd like to have two buttons next to the other users' photographs: a "like" and a "favs" (the same used by 500px). The "Like" (or heartin 500px) button is useful to communicate that picture like but do not want to put it among their favorites.
                        Without "like" the number of the favorites become huge and useless for any personal research.
                        Thank you.

                        • I started a group and it won't let me add any photos to it. The boxes on the right side are wonky and photos won't post.

                          Fix it, for Pete's sake! I administer several groups on Flickr and have had trouble before, but this time, it is ridiculous! I can post to my Photostream and create albums, but I can't add anything to the new group I started. This is irritating.

                              • Valid links posted on Facebook to albums are getting oops page not found 404. Identical replacements then work. Why?

                                I have posted links to albums on Facebook which when others have clicked on them, they are met with an Oops Page not found etc, message. The albums are deemed 'public'. Sometimes the links work for me, and sometimes when I return later to check them out, I too am faced with the same message. If I could edit my first posting, I have remade the link with what appears to be an identical code, and the link works again. I have clicked on other people's links and have been presented with the same message. What is causing these problems…

                                  Flickr generaly displays all your photo by date, even if through an album you can pre organize your photos with a random choice. This choice will stay static for the visitor.

                                  By visiting your galery, a visitor sees always your photos chronologically, and never has a chance to see older photos.

                                  One idea could be to have a capacity with parameters to show your galery with

                                  (a) a number of chronological pictures to show your X last pictures (like 3 or 5) and then

                                  (b) complete the set of photo by a random selection of your photos either

                                  • Give error about private photos instead of 404 Page Not Found error

                                    When I send a link to a private album, if the recipient doesn't have access, it says "404 page not found" instead of saying the photos are private. If they are not logged into Flickr, you could say "These photos are private, try logging into Flickr". If they are logged in, but don't have access to the photos, you could say "These photos are private, try requesting access from <the owner>."

                                    • front cover

                                      I think it would be great ,if we had the option of a front cover for our photosream . Many members have a great amount of photos in their photostreams and tend to take photos of varius subjects wich change after sometime . The consept of the front cover is simple . You got a page (lets say no more than 50 photos ), where a personal selection of your photos is showcased in order to show other flickr members the range of your work . eg Your personal favourites of your photostream or one photo of each place you…

                                      • That 'join flickr' thing that pops up to the side?

                                        That 'join flickr' thing that pops up to the side is really annoying and it freezes my browser. If I wanted to join/login, I would do that, and having that pop up every time I search something just makes me more likely to leave than join/login.

                                        • Let me delete automatic tags

                                          In https://www.flickr.com/photos/styrheim/25898349210/in/dateposted-public/, I got an aitotag that I cannon delete.

                                          I actually like autotags, but I used to be able to delete those I disagreed with.
