  1. 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!

      • 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.

        • Sort photo by camera/lens/aperture etc.

          Why can't we have a feature that can organize our(or even others/group's) photos by:
          camera/lens/aperture/location/ISO/Shutter speed etc.
          It's much easier to show the picture I took from only this Camera/lens/ aperture to my friend when they ask for. So we don't have to go back to my computer to sort it, so people can stay longer on flickr browse around, and that's exactly what you want.

              • 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.

                NOT all "improvements" are improvements!

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Be able to upload videos greater than one GB

                        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????

                        • "Video" category on camera roll

                          It should be useful a "Video" category in Camera Roll view, so you can find all your video uploaded in one place, no matter when they were shot.

                              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.

                                • Please provide setting for how groups appear so we may go back to the old format.

                                  The new groups tab is a mess with the new "recent photos details view". It takes up way to much real estate on the page and makes it a nuisance to scroll through and quick identify them. A simple, stream lined list view was much better.

                                  Recently the format of the groups was changed to look more like a online magazine, replacing the simple, effective and quick way to find information you are looking for through the list view.

                                  Here is a link to a good book.

                                    Very often I see my followers use their screen name to place a status message such as "away for a day," " on vacay," "I'm back" or something else short to alert their followers. The screen name is only 20 characters, most of which is an actual screen name.

                                    Could there be a field on the header, next to or below our names, people could use if they wanted to display a short status message? I think this would help quite a few active users.

                                    I know I wanted to leave a status message before, but my screen name was…

                                    • Stats - Source breakdown of views from Mobile devices

                                      Stats - Source breakdown of views from Mobile devices:
                                      Under the Mobile heading in the source breakdown section of stats they just give the type of device (android/ios/web) with numbers of views from these devices.
                                      That is not helpful to me. I don't care what device views are coming from, I want to know what they looked at! or how they found my photo(s), the same as with the other stats.

                                      • Responsive group window and other feature requests

                                        Hi Guys,
                                        Some development tips came into my mind during the daily usage of Flickr (web and mobile)
                                        Web:
                                        - add photo to group window should be responsive or adjustable, when I use it on a bigger screen it takes 20 rolls to get to the bottom, instead of having a bigger window and see 10-15 groups on one
                                        page
                                        - in add photo to group window you should indicate at each group, how many pics I have left that day/week/month - just as in the mobile version
                                        - arranging my groups by how many pics I have left that…

                                        • Get GPS coordinates from videos

                                          When I take a video with my iPhone, exiftool knows the GPS coordinates that the video was taken at. Flickr can read those coordinates when I upload a photo, but it seems like it ignores them when I upload a video.
