  1. Allow larger thumbnails in organizr in browser

    Please allow us to make the thumbnails larger in the organizr interface. I'm tired of guessing what the picture is of when I'm trying to organize pictures into batches. Resizing within the browser doesn't increase the thumbnail resolution, and if you increase it too much, the window content gets confused.

    • Allow more than 50 photos in galleries

      I use galleries as a reference for inspiration for my own art. 50 is a low limit in a gallery for me.

      • Ability to trim start and end point of videos

        A lot of videos start and end with the user fumbling with the camera. It would be nice to select just the time range that you actually want to play on flickr. (It's fine if the 'download' link still provides the entire video since it's providing the original file.)

        • No way to search for a specific album. Its a "must have" option if you are a pro user who upload hundreds of albums.

          Otherway - there is no meaning for the ability to upload a lot of pictures, folders etc....
          PLEASE ADD SEARCH OPTION for albu, search.

          • Please allow users to configure content shown on the homepage, ie ,ake Groups, Suggested Photographers, even Followed Photographers OPTIONAL

            There are many comments, generally unfavourable, about the content that's now shown on the 'homepage' ie what you see on first login. In many instances, much of that content is irrelevant to the user, so please would you allow us to configure the content that gets shown?

            • Let us arrange our Flickr homepage to show what WE want to see.

              I would like to be able to drag & drop 'blocks' of content so I can arrange my Flickr home page to show what **I** want to see as well as what I want others to see, and I want to decide what sizes those blocks of content should be. The new layout with just two columns of 'latest pics' in my feed by others that I have to scroll, scroll, scroll to see, is NOT want I want to see first!

              • Non-destructive photo editing

                Non-destructive photo editing through Aviary would be great so you can always revert back to the original image.

                Right now, you either have to keep your originals outside Flickr; or, have duplicates of the same photo in Flickr - the original plus an edited version. I do the latter since Flickr is my primary backup and storage option, which is a little clunky.

                • I think contact email addresses should be mandatory.

                  Few people use Flickr Mail. or have it go to a spam account. Reaching people is tough. If they HAVE to post a contact email in their PROFILE section, it would be easier to do business with them.

                    • Allow users to post private images in comments

                      Previously I was allowed to post private images in the comment section to show different POVs and crops of an image. As of late this has been disallowed, and I request that it be returned to a viable option when posting comments under my images.
                      Or,
                      explain how to post private images in comments so I can do it myself.

                        • Allow users to upload/download and support higher quality lossless formats such as PNG or TIFF

                          Hi. Can you please allow users to upload lossless PNG files?!! JPEGs are not the best quality for users to share with their relatives, friends, and coworkers. Many people use Flickr for all types of purposes, including business purposes. I also use Flickr to store some of my photos. But JPEG is a lossy fornat and when I upload my high quality images, I lose some of the quality on Flickr.

                          • Flickr should have a choice of disabling the picture to be opened in a new tab or window and right clicked and downloaded.

                            How about a feature that disables opening a picture in a new tab where it can be right clicked and downloaded.

                              I love sharing my HD videos, but Flickr only lets me upload 1 GB videos maximum. That is ridiculous, and is annoying because most of my videos are greater than 1 GB. As long as we don't use more than our TB of data in total, may we please upload videos greater than 1 GB????

                                    • Make it easier to find just new photos

                                      Sometimes I just want to look at photos as they come in. When I click on "Explore" it is pretty much always photos that have been up for ages with ten thousand + views and hundreds or thousands of 'favs'. I just want to *easily* look at the raw feed as photographers, good or bad, post their stuff. I think it is nice to see what just average folks post, as well as being beneficial. Then they know people are looking at their stuff and average people will get their photos rated more easily. Then they will get to learn…

                                      • Redesign the Flickr Homepage With No Scrolling

                                        What Iwould like on my home page:
                                        A row of my latest photos.
                                        A row of contacts photos.
                                        2 rows of photos each row from one of my groups.
                                        My recent activity.
                                        2 rows of my favorites.
                                        No large photos, no clutter, no scrolling.
                                        A link to upload.
                                        More options about what I have instead of Flickr choosing.

                                        • It would be great if you could see who is online. Like friends and followers

                                          Would be nice to know who is online viewing or able to chat with.
