    • 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?

      • Pro required? No thanks.

        So Pro is now required to use Uploadr?

        Ha ha. Forget it.

        Not happening.

        • Help! My photos are being held ******* by Flickr!

          I signed up for a supposedly free Flick account and spent a lot of time and effort uploading thousands of my photos. Now, suddenly, Flickr says that the main way to upload photos (Uploadr) will no longer be available without a paid subscription. Talk about bait and switch! Flickr certainly has a right to limit features in the free version. But luring me into uploading all my photos and then trying to force me to pay to keep using the service--that's a low-class move. If you feel the same way, please make your voice heard!

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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.
                  Max.

                  • Uploader should not be a pro version.

                    The uploader should not be part of a paid plan, you want people to get as much stuff into Flickr and they can, so dont restrict them. Instead Add pro for better user management, better streaming of video even a desktop app. But no the uploader, and no one cares about stats. I just started moving everything to Flickr, its pretty good so far.

                      • I have cancelled my account

                        Flickr uploader announced that it would now be a pay only app.

                        You have broken trust. I now cannot count on your product price increasing arbitrarily at any time.

                        So within 10 minutes of seeing this notification on my screen, I have deleted my photographs, and cancelled my flickr account.

                        • Uploader bait and switch

                          Bait and switch. Signed up for Flickr a week or two ago and it said Uploader was free. I used it for a bit without too much trouble. Tried to sign in to uploader today and it says Pro subscription is required. Why the bait and switch? Does this happen to everyone after a week or two of signing up?

                          • Remove the interstitial photo ads. They are tacky.

                            I am looking for a different photo service now that I realize logged out users see an ad (instead of one of my photos) every fifth photo or so. So tacky! And the ads are the worst, refinance you house, stuff like that.

                            Please change this. These types of ads makes me feel terrible about subjecting people to flickr.

                              The fact that you are now charging for the uploader is ridiculous! I was going to buy a package but this just seems petty.
