  1. Today-change in the front page layout.

    5-7-2015 I'm tired of the sudden and abrupt changes on Flickr...

    The header photo is too large-takes up almost 1/3rd of the page along with the menu bar!

    Too much white on the edges now with hardly any space between the photos.

    Did people actually request the changes listed above?

    Also, if you're going to have a list above the photos that include "camera roll," "albums," "creations," etc., please PLEASE include "collections."

    Thanks,

    Dave in Maine

    • Auto-tagging needs opt-out

      Auto-tagging needs to have an opt-out option. and auto-tagging should only be added to newly uploaded images. Many images are being totally inappropriately tagged, and trawling through hundreds or thousands of old images to remove inappropriate tags in very undesirable.

        • Why change the stat section ?

          Why this change in the stats section ? The photos are no longer numbered by the number of views or favorites ! We can no longer do stats easily. For example to know the number of photos seen less than 200 times or more than 1000 times !

          • white space

            Get rid of the white space on the sides, the pictures are crammed into the middle and it looks awful! What is the idea behind this? The pictures themselves should be presented as to take up most of the screen without distraction.....

            • Stop changing the website!

              It is a pain ********** that Flickr keeps changing the look of the website constantly! Users are left to their own devices in trying to figure out the new look and how to accomplish anything on the website.

              • auto tags

                Auto tags are really not helpful. What is the point of adding "outdoors" to nearly all of my pictures, and "sky" to nearly half of them. I now have aircraft tagged as "bird" and an airship as "street sign".

                I have over 10,000 pictures to trawl through now...

                  • Put the Home Page back the way it was

                    You morons have really screwed it up...everything has to change for change's sake....idiots. I want the Explore and Group listings back on the right side of the screen...not buried. You are really hurting the community. Without the explore thumbnails, how are you going to get members to look at other members photos. Plus when I want to see how a search linked someone to my photo, I want to see where I place in the tagged or keyword search. I hate Flickr

                      App is doing a great job with images, but I have to use the web app for video, which breaks the overall experience pretty badly.

                        ...another change today with the new stats page...it is the worst change ever for me personally...where did "total views" go?...how do i easily get to the last page of viewed photos without spending 5 minutes just scrolling to get to the last page...dammit...

                        ...when a photo reaches a milestone, say 500 views, i like to folder them...now i don't know total views anymore on the stats page for my recently viewed photos...dammit, again...

                              I don't like that the program automatically starts without a user option for removing it. I know there are ways to do it through windows, but I'd rather the program behaves on its own.

                                      • Flickr Pro - same benefits for older & newer users

                                        I remain to think that we new Pro users deserve the same benefits as the older Pro members.
                                        I think the fact we pay twice as much for our Pro account is more than enough special treatment for older users.
                                        In a way, since services and products increase in price due to inflation, we pay for the increment in fees older users should have had if the prices were not grandfathered.
                                        I will not argue such decision and I am happy for the older Pro users that they have this bargain.

                                        I think though that is special treatment enough it…

                                        • The Uploadr never finish uploading

                                          It never finishes uploading. When the number of remaining photos count down to zero it started all over again! Sometimes an album already contain all the photos after manual check, but the Uploadr still insists uploading.
