  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…

    • Create a Group Founder Category For All Groups

      This has been brought up, discussed, and requested repeatedly over the last decade, yet Flickr has done absolutely nothing to fix the situation and address the issues with rogue administrators that at some point just take over a group and will not cooperate with any of the other admins who are trying to keep the group on track with its intended purpose!

      As a group founder you may or may not have experienced this issue as of yet, but if you have granted admin privileges or intend to grant admin privileges to any member of your group, be forewarned that…

          The Flickr iOS app can easily cache hundreds of megabytes on the iPhone. Please give users the ability to clear the cache in the settings.

          • NEED Google Maps

            Switch to Google Maps on flickr.com

            The photo info screen of the mobile app displays geotagged location in Google Maps.

            It's infuriating that the mapping/location page of the website is not powered by Google Maps. The current mapping system is very limiting and embarrassingly inferior. Please consider upgrading to Google Maps!

            Thank you.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • Unfollow

                    There has to be a way to unfollow a huge bulk of people at once. I've had my account since early 2000's in my teens and have followed many random accounts. My tastes are different now and I'd like to refine my follow list without having to individually unfollow some people one by one as I go down the list. It is exhausting and bad User Experience.

                    • Put up an extra warning when deleting stuff from Camera Roll

                      From several reports in the Help Forum it appears not all users are aware of the fact that deleting images from Camera Roll will delete them from their Flickr account, seeing they are in the erroneous assumption that Camera Roll is some separate entity, not connected to their photostream. They then proceed to delete only to discover that their images are gone from their account. In some cases it concerned entire streams storing work of years and years.

                      Request is to implement an emphatic statement, when you hit the delete button that you are about to delete the ONLY copy/copies…

                        • Recycle Bin for Deleted Group Discussions and Comments

                          Groups can have many moderators and admins.

                          And though I understand group creators should always carefully choose which privileges are given to "trusted" members when they deem they need help monitoring their group, it's often very difficult to ascertain just how someone will act once they are elevated to administrator status, and given the power to make drastic deletions and changes within the group.

                          Not all admins or moderators will agree on everything concerning the group, especially when the group allows open discussions to be created and discussed by group members, moderators, and admins.

                          Unfortunately any admin can just delete…

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • Photostream needs a MAKEOVER!

                                  I believe Flickr's Welcome Page needs a major make-over. Two important things:

                                  1) If you're following 500+ users, it's really inconvenient scrolling down to go through all the new photos the followers may have posted. Even my mice screams at me to not abuse its wheel.

                                  [Suggestion]: Instead of one photo per scroll, have a collage with different sizes of photos, the more interesting the photo, the bigger it's size -- but not too big to take over an entire page. Just a nice, clean and collective collage layout on the mainpage to checkout the new photos from the followers…

                                    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…

                                    • elevate "Collections" to full tab status, right next to Creations tab

                                      Flickr Collections is an IMMENSELY valuable feature... Allows photogs to build collections of interest, and continuously add new project albums to the various collections.... The ultimately creates a powerfully interesting portfolio. I always provide my audience a Direct Link to my Collections page! I am sure it is frustrating for new visitors to find their way back to the Collections! It only appears in one drop-down menu --- AND it NEEDS to be a PROMINENT TAB

                                      • Let user set whether they want their photostream to be viewed by default in the order of 'date taken' or 'date uploaded'

                                        When I send my photostream to my friends to view, it is messy as the default setting displays the photos in order of 'date uploaded'.

                                        This is because I have uploaded odd photos from older dates but I would like the option to select a default arrangement option for people looking at my photos.

                                        It is very frustrating to me.
