  1. Mark Photos that have already been placed in a group.

    When I'm uploading pictures to a group it would be great if a pink or blue border appeared around photos I have already placed in the group

  2. Report images of lenses/cameras which have been posted in the wrong group

    There are lots of groups around that are explicitly designated to pool images from certain cameras or lenses (i.e. "Canon 5D Mark II" group or "Samyang 85 1.4" group). Often enough there are many random pictures in these groups which were not shot with the camera or lens in question. This is confusing if you browse these groups in order to look for images from these specific cameras or lenses.

    I request a feature to report these pictures to the admin for validation. Or maybe even better an atuomatic response system that removes reported images once they cross a certain…

  3. View activity since last post. In Recent Activity it would be useful to have an option to view only activity since my last post.

    View activity since last post. In customize view of Recent Activity it would be useful to have an option to view only activity since my last post.Since last log on is no good for me because I log on regularly to view notifications, but only review them fully when I post my next photo.

  4. How About Showing The Names Of The People Who Post Invites To Groups

    Whenever I get an invite to post a photo into some group, I never see the name of the person who has sent me the invite on my photostream. When I receive an invitation to post a photo into a group I want to know WHO sent me the invitation so that I can send the person a "FlickrMail" message thanking them. Could Flickr PLEASE start showing the names of people who send out invitations to groups. Thanks sincerely. From Steven Chateauneuf. snc145.

  5. 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.

  6. Simplify access to guest sharing links from Albums

    If I already shared an album with someone and want share it again - I need to find sharing link under settings/sharing... would be much easier if it was accessible from album page

  7. How about a proper, functional zoom feature?

    How about working on that instead of that neural image recognition feature? Which, at best, will be experimental, and at worst, merely duplicate exactly what 'tags' are meant to be used for - which are basically 100% accurate!

    Your new zoom feature would just replicate what Panoramio had, and what Google Photos / Picasa has had for some time.

    All the best, a very disapointed new user.

  8. Make use of Gyroscope Sensors for controlling and viewing 360 Images on Mobile Devices

    360 Images (VR, Spherical Images) should work in Browsers and in the Flickr-App, utilizing the gyroscope sensor of a mobile device.
    They should be in full screen as well.

  10. 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.

  13. Increase video length

    Greetings! Please consider increasing the video length you allow beyond you current 3 minute limit. If you rely on the space limit you currently have in place, users will have more flexibility in the videos we can share. Thanks for considering this request

  14. Regarding Invite/History: It would be soooooo helpful if the names were listed with the guest pass links (as they are with pending invites).

    I would like to see WHO is making use of a guest pass to view my photos. On the Invite/History page I can see a list of guest pass links that I've sent out, listed by date. But if I've sent several passes out on the same day, there is no way to know which guest responded and viewed. So now I keep a log and only send one invite per day so I can keep track. Under the "Pending Invites" tab, you list the names of people I've invited to follow me, it seems you could also list the…

    1)no more than 1 picture per day, when other members may put more
    2)to select which members to put on a pic on approval

    Can there be a small icon on the corner of the photographs which indicates whether the image is creative common or with full rights and so on. This way, one can search for all images and select according to need.

    For Flickr Slideshows embedded from Flickr to 3rd party websites we NEED to toggle 'Show Information' on the images like in Old Flickr Slideshows.The New Slideshows are Useless with No Information - Random images with no information on what viewers are looking at. The current slideshows were working on Jan 27 are now just black boxes - http://www.kununurra.org.au/khs/digital-archive/collections - S Yahoo's infinite wisdom in deprecating the old Flash slideshows has left broken websites all over the web. There is a need to be able to toggle 'Show Info' - Showing Photographs that show absolutely no information is totally useless in…

  20. Two public areas per person, "Best" and "Ordinary" LOL

    The Flickr suggestions found on web pages on line encourage us to limit our best photos to the top 6 or so as people do not work through an entire feed to find our better ones. Have you considered having two public feeds per person? One for the "best of best" and the other one for others? I take my photos out of "public" for this reason. I know most people won't take the time, although I often do, to look at a couple or more of pages of photos of someone else. This way, people would be encouraged to…
