  1. Provide a way to remove GROUPS from my Flickr Feed

    The new Flickr Feed page is TERRIBLE. I don't want to keep up the random posts to a ton of groups. I do want to keep up with a very SELECT group of PEOPLE I follow--there's a big difference between the two. The developers can go off on their merry tangents, just give us a way to arrange things the way WE like. Seem's fair enough to me!

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Request to Flickr: set the default for "Downloading" and "Share" to DISabled

    At this moment "downloading" on the All Sizes page is by default set to *enabled* (from our Settings: *anyone*)
    This is also the case for the Share feature in our Settings.

    In my opinion this gives the wrong message; the interpretation that "free to download" equals "Free to use" is an easy step.
    Same with Sharing: why would you be allowed to slap an image just anywhere you like, without taking into consideration that the photographer may not endorse that particular blog or site ?

    Flickr could be an innovator, curbing this if-it's-on-the-net-it-is-free-to-take mentality by turning the default around: no,…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  11. Download all (my) pictures when having download limit? (Download Sync or Torrent)

    If i would want to download all my pictures from Flick I would always get over my download limit of 500 GB (or 150 GB).
    Then I would have a speed cap, so that would it made impossible to download my pictures as a zip.

    Example:
    I have 1500 GB pictures, that would take me 3 months to download, that would mean 3 months (or 10 when having download limit of 150 GB/month) without closing my pc (and internet connection), otherwise my zips would be corrupt.

    So a FREE (download) sync would possible be an option, or an option to…

  14. Lists!

    Lists: to be able to add really good photographer to privately created lists.

    Example: if you follow 600 people whom all are good, some will be exceptionally good.

    Some of the fellas I follow I would like to "bookmark" in flickr so I can follow their work specifically, rather than sifting through all the ones I follow.

    Note: I do only add people I think are good. But some are very good. Some of the guys out of India, US, etc.

    Please implement, twitter has this and it works great as you can't remember them all and it is not…
