    • front cover

      I think it would be great ,if we had the option of a front cover for our photosream . Many members have a great amount of photos in their photostreams and tend to take photos of varius subjects wich change after sometime . The consept of the front cover is simple . You got a page (lets say no more than 50 photos ), where a personal selection of your photos is showcased in order to show other flickr members the range of your work . eg Your personal favourites of your photostream or one photo of each place you…

      • Too many clicks to see photo details

        When you click a photo there should be a way to see the details. With the current change you need to click the photo and then click the photographer to get to their stream, then re-click the photo you were just looking at to see the details. Suggest adding an icon (i) maybe, on the banner at the bottom where you click favorite, forward etc. so you can jump directly to the narrative and EXIF, location etc.

        • Unable to favorite or comment in Photostream when Multiple photos

          When 2 or more photos are displayed from the same person there is no option to favorite or comment. You need to open these in a new window to do this. Better to be able to do this from the Photostream main page as before. This still works for single photos just not when there are 2 or more from the same person

          • Way too many large photos when I open my main page .. much too confusing to concentrate on a single photo with al the rest saying me me me

            When I open my page it is much too confusing to concentrate on a single photo with all the rest of those too large photos saying me me me !!! ... and the constant scrolling to get anywhere ... is not only annoying but tedious .... do you people go out of your way to constantly annoy us with every brilliant scheme and change? ... HERE is a very simple plan a monkey could figure out .... put out a BETA format and let every paying customer vote! ... I am not the only one paying out of my pocket…

              To comment on multiple posts.... you have to leave the stream... then can't return to same place... have to start again at the beginning... very slow... not intuitive... hard to use.

              • Remove or provide alternative on mosaic feature in collections

                When creating collections of work, the only option for a cover image for that collection is a mosaic.

                This creates a random assortment of images from albums within the collection. For a professional photography page, this looks horrible when displayed on my website. Not only does the resulting image come out small, it looks very cluttered and unorganized. I would like the option to add my own single photo cover option of my choice just like albums.

                Also, for users who like the mosaic option, the ability to choose your own photos from albums would be greatly preferred over relying…

                • Photostream needs a MAKEOVER!

                  I believe Flickr's Welcome Page needs a major make-over. Two important things:

                  1) If you're following 500+ users, it's really inconvenient scrolling down to go through all the new photos the followers may have posted. Even my mice screams at me to not abuse its wheel.

                  [Suggestion]: Instead of one photo per scroll, have a collage with different sizes of photos, the more interesting the photo, the bigger it's size -- but not too big to take over an entire page. Just a nice, clean and collective collage layout on the mainpage to checkout the new photos from the followers…

                    • Better / special view for panorama's

                      When we watch a panoprama, it's shown very small. I think panarama's should get a special treatment for this, so it will show from one side, to the other side of the screen, and it will actually looks huge and impress people. So the effort and effect of a panarama is actually translated into the eyes of the people.

                        Advertising is a necessary evil; but it really sucks and is counter-productive when the advert blocks photos in the pool. Please provide a simple way to acknowledge the ad and then move on. please limit the ad views.

                        • Comment box doesn't close when I click to post comment.. remains on top of photograph... annoying....

                          New presentation is hard and slow to navigate.
                          Clicking 'faves' is unpredicatable and slow
                          Comment box does not close when clicked to post comment... remains for another comment... over the photograph.
                          Prefer to view photograph in single column, not the two.
                          Prefer to have my photographs with faves and comments included in the stream
                          I love flickr.... this view has resulted in far fewer communications with flickr friends... I guess they don't like it either.

                          • Photostream Positioning

                            For sometime now the Photostream does not maintain positioning to be able to go back to the correct point after a photograph is viewed. It is a little frustrating because each time I have to scroll forward to the point I was at when I viewed the photograph.

                              Viewing pictures on Flickr in their full glory is just not possible without downloading them first.

                                Currently, the comment box is below all a photo's previous comments. This is inconvenient as one has to scroll right to the bottom of a page in order to post a comment on a photograph.

                                I think it would save a lot of time if the comment box for photos was moved above all the photo's previous comments.

                                • Have a column within our personal Photostreams page in the "Following" link that show people that no longer follow you...

                                  People “Follow” you and after you have followed them back they drop you. This causes them to have large numbers that follow them but few they follow (because they drop their followers without them being aware). I guess they think this makes them look impressive. I don't want to follow people like this. I block them. I have to determine who they are by comparing every person in my "Followed" list against the list showing who follows me. This is time consuming. There should be a status in our list of people we follow that shows people that have dropped…

                                    I love the Chromecast screensaver. What is really needed is a Roku screen saver. You have a roku app. Adding the screen saver feature should be fairly easy. Somthing with nice fade effects! Roku is the best streaming device and would be sweet to have televisions be a good picture frame when not in use. Thank you for your time.

                                      I'd like to see a home page that has the ability to add or remove section. For example, a photostream in one or 2 columns on one side, the ability to add a stream for a group (or groups) of my choice. Allow me to select the layout. Maybe have 3 streams vertical and allow me to move sideways to select a different group or view other details about the photo. Think like a rubix cube but with more than 9 tiles. You could have one tile on the screen show recommended. For example
