  1. Auto tagging is ridiculous

    I bet the guy who figured out what's in a picture and supplies tags automatically thought it was a really clever idea.
    Well, if it were smart enough, it would be, but it's not, so it isn't.
    "sky" ? "road" ? "building"? Yeah, those things appear in my pictures,
    but that's not the subject and I bet there is "sky" in almost every outdoor picture taken! Yeah, that will narrow things down!

    What is the end result of this "cleverness"?
    Wasted time and effort, as no doubt it slows down the upload process,
    and then it wastes my time getting…

  2. Could you please stop adding tags yourself ? The statue of a man is not an ANIMAL !!

    flickr always adds tags that have no link whatsoever with the posted pics.
    Please note that your clients are adults and know what tags to add exactly!

  3. Please can you allow video clips to have the correct date created/modified, so we don't have to correct each one manually.

    When videos are uploaded, the date created/modified is automatically changed to the date uploaded.
    I know it can be corrected manually, but when uploading several short clips it takes ages to do this.
    I know several people have already suggested it, so please consider doing it. Thanks

  4. Uploading bulk continuous flapping

    Really Bad when uploading pictures in a bulk. Trying to upload 7260 pictures (aprox 200KB each) and continuously flapping with erros like response timeout (internet still working perfect). If there is some way to debug this i could send you the error.
    Using the app from android it works perfectly BUT it doesnt let me choose wich folder to upload, it automatically decide what folder to upload...
    Actually it is awesome that yahoo-flickr provides 1TB storage, but with this bad service i can not even reach 3% of the quota. Only uploading one by one or a maximun of some…

  5. fix it okey! Because that has never happened

    I am a member of this place and pay for it, then as it is not better to communicate with you, I want you to know that they have problems in Geo Tagging and when you download a photograph says a message that there is nothing downloaded, when you try to put the photo on the map .... fix it okey! Because that has never happened

  6. Make it possible to upload a photo one day, but have it posted to Flickr on a future date.

    I will be moving in the very near future, and I may not have access to the internet on a certain date. My idea is to allow a photo to be uploaded one day (ex: June 15), and then have Flickr post it on the day requested (ex: July 1) so that it can then be 'visible' to all on that certain day. I know I can upload now and only make it visible to myself, but if I'm not available on the correct date to change the visibility option and change the date of the upload, then the photo…

  7. Automatic Album sort by newest to oldest in albums

    Photos should automatically sort by newest to oldest in albums. It is SO frustrating that I have to edit the arrangement after every upload. Why can't I choose a default for every upload?

  13. Uploader

    Good day, the current model of the Flickr Uploader, is quiet...useless. Direct upload from the folder, takes away the means to set up tags, album title, and sub title of the picture in question. To which you make more work on doing the personal touches in edit mode on your site. When it can be done, via the old Uploader at one's own desktop.

    Please, I understand currently, the company has been bought and there is a transition ongoing. To be honest...the design is made 'cheaply' and with no true after thought. Since I have been a member since 2007,…

  14. To avoid duplication, before uploading, user should be given an option, whether to proceed or replaced the existing files.

    To avoid duplication, before uploading, user should be given an option, whether to proceed or replaced the existing files. Why on earth, this easy process flickr still unable to perform??

  15. Tags are not metadata anymore

    Tag Parsing - Tags are not metadata anymore

    Hashtags are embedded in so many descriptions and titles, they should not have to be treated as metadata by us content creators. It would be helpful if, during the insert, hashtags are parsed and copied into Flickr's metadata fields. Tags could be parsed from Exif data and text captions/descriptions.

  18. Add more folder option required

    App is good but there is no option to add more folders like what's app or Bluetooth. Currently it takes backup of camera folder due to which we failed to upload all pics from other folders like Google photos. Need improvement in Flickr on this issue
