Help improve Flickr

As you know, we’re working to build the best photo platform in the world. As technology transforms how we take pictures and how we communicate and express ourselves with photos, we’re committed to updating and improving Flickr. As we constantly improve our products, we want to hear from you and we want you to know your opinions are valuable to us. Our intention is to address your feature requests, comments, and critiques, whether that means incorporating them into Flickr products or explaining why we won’t be doing so. We’re here to support you and to make the time you spend on Flickr the best it can be.

Please share feedback with us here on Flickr Ideas and let us know how you’d like your Flickr experience improved. We’ll update you on the progress of your requests and give you insight into our product development priorities along the way.

Thanks,
The Flickr Community Team

Tell us how we can improve your Flickr experience.

  1. Why do you have to keep changing the site layout? It's hard to keep up and honestly it was fine how it was. I hate it now.

    New layout is way less user-friendly and quite frankly, a pain in the *** to use. The comment section is cramped and impossible to read as a whole, and the site layout was much better before.

    • Flickr is getting worse with every redesign. Flickr is supposed to be about members, not you and your designers.

      Flickr is getting worse with every redesign. Flickr is supposed to be about members, not you and your designers. I;m hoping that someone out there can come up with a competing photo sharing site so we can all defect to the new site. You are making it difficult to enjoy the experience of sharing photos.

      • <b>RETURN THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE NPE SO WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED</b>

        <b>GROUP ISSUES</b>
        1. Return the admin invites to the top of the comments section of the NPE so we can tell when we have an invite without having to go to Recent Activity.
        2. Fix Recent Activity so ALL admin invites are visible (regardless of the designated time period). Currently we can only see ten and that's not enough: many more than that can come in, especially in the first few days after posting.
        3. Return the 'Invite To/Remove From' groups window to a list (which wastes less space) and show when a photo is already invited (saves time).
        4.…

            • Not that you care, but this is truly terrible. How can you justify the destruction of a wonderful vehicle for photographers to share shots?

              Put it back the way it was. This is really bad work. We were perfectly satisfied with the former Flicker experience. I'm sure that as I write this many of us are searching for a better method to share than this new version of Flickr..

                  • Why do you maintain this feedback charade?

                    Not only do you not listen to your longtime users, who stay with you mainly because of a sort of time and effort equivalent of economic sunk costs (I have over 6000 photos here, which are linked in a lot of other sites as well), but you display a supreme contempt for us, either not acknowledging what we have to say at all, or by patronizingly dismissing those complaints, reiterating as if speaking to children that you do not intend to listen to, much less act on, a single word we say.
                    Maybe someone can remind me of the name…

                    • Can you please change my photos back to having the comments underneath

                      Can you please change my photos back to having the comments underneath, it's so annoying to just keep changing things ~ give your customers a choice! It's black and cramped! Please stop trying to keep your jobs by looking like you're doing something ~ go and take some photos instead!

                      • Why are Flickr/Yahoo Admins lying to us about listening to feedback?

                        I see no evidence that many of the people commenting here are being listened to. Granted we don't have stats saying x number hate Flickr after 20MAY2013 and Y number like it. However what I find most annoying here is that there tends to be universal dislike of the new photo experience when it comes to the sidebar and all the staff does is pay lip service but there is nothing discernible that has changed.

                        The comment area is to small. It's hard to read. The photos are cutoff or have an odd aspect ratio. I use a 23 inch…

                        • why the real names in comments on the New Photo Page?

                          this has probably been brought up before,
                          why are the real names given in the comments on the New Photo Page?
                          So the whole world knows our names? Most of us have screen names for privacy- so why this? I don't like this at all.
                          Please reconsider.

                          • Bring back right click to view full size image

                            In the new design for the single image view, the "dark grey right sidebar design" it is impossible to right click to get full size links. This was working good with the old white design.

                            It seems every "new inovation" from you gus is a step backwards.

                                  Stop messing around with the site. It seems to be becoming run by techies with an obsession for gadgets and clutter, rather than anyone with an eye for design, which is ironic for a photography website.

                                        Please bring back the old way of showing search results-page by page. New endless search photostream looks good, but it eats ROM and freezes PC! When I reach less recent photos, I wait, and wait for some Java applet to load. Sometimes Firefox asks me do I want to wait for applet or stop executing it.
                                        It would be better if there were pages 1, 2, 3... like in the user photostream. Thanks in advance
