  1. 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

    • 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?

      • Option To Go Back To Previous Style

        You keep making changes that get worse and once we get used to the new change you make another. The new recent activity is horrible and not user friendly. It was nice to have the notifications and newly uploaded pics in one spot now i have to go into another area to look at notifications. In the old design it was easy to like we didn't even have to click on the image to like it and there were thumbnail views of multiple uploaded pics we could choose to look at IF we wanted to, this is just a bunch…

        • Search only your own photos with apps

          Would it possible to set up Flickr apps so you can only search your own photostream and not those of the whole world as well? I'm becoming really frustrated with seeing pornographic and other inappropriate images when just trying to check the over 8000 images in my own, personal photostream. Thanks.

              • Why do I have to click FOUR buttons to close the MAC Flickr uploader?

                Unless I intend to use the Flickr uploader, I usually close the application; I really cannot express enough that it is frustrating to have to click FOUR buttons before it closes ==>

                1. click the application icon
                2. click the settings icon
                3. click Quit
                4. click Quit button on the 'Are you sure' control.

                AT least one of these steps is surely unnecessary.

                  • 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…

                      • 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.

                            The new Flickr Feed page is TERRIBLE. I don't want to keep up the random posts to a ton of groups. I do want to keep up with a very SELECT group of PEOPLE I follow--there's a big difference between the two. The developers can go off on their merry tangents, just give us a way to arrange things the way WE like. Seem's fair enough to me!

                            • Compact notifications

                              I find the current notifications system too verbose and chaotic.
                              I'm new here in Flickr while coming from several months using EyeEm.
                              The notifications there are handled in a more readable way.
                              To do example, if someone fav 20 of my photos, comment 4 of them and then begins to follow me here in Flickr I get 25 separate notifications, in chronological order. It's even difficult to separate the comments from the favs.
                              In EyeEm I just receive 3 notifications, one with the list on favs photo, 1 with the list of commented photos and 1 for the following.

                                  The group invitation function requires that the person doing the invitation know whether the invitee already has a Flickr account.

                                  I should be able to send an invite list and have Flickr provide two different links - a request to join the group directly, if the person has an account already. If I guess incorrectly, the link that is sent to them is useless.

                                  • I don't like that my older albums are no longer available. I also don't like archiving, photos are wanted even if more than 5yrs old.

                                    I would prefer that all my albums would continue to be available via the album link. We already have paging so there's no reason that old albums should disappear. There is no way to get to the old albums.

                                    Yes, I can locate my old photos by date in the archive section, but no longer can I get to the whole album group which would cover many dates and might even only select some of my favorites from each date.

                                    • Request to Flickr: set the default for "Downloading" and "Share" to DISabled

                                      At this moment "downloading" on the All Sizes page is by default set to *enabled* (from our Settings: *anyone*)
                                      This is also the case for the Share feature in our Settings.

                                      In my opinion this gives the wrong message; the interpretation that "free to download" equals "Free to use" is an easy step.
                                      Same with Sharing: why would you be allowed to slap an image just anywhere you like, without taking into consideration that the photographer may not endorse that particular blog or site ?

                                      Flickr could be an innovator, curbing this if-it's-on-the-net-it-is-free-to-take mentality by turning the default around: no,…

                                      • Please make albums within groups an option

                                        Please allow groups to have albums.

                                        The only collaborative sharing option on Flickr is via Groups. If I make a group for different family members to contribute photos too it ends up one long photo stream. If I want it organized more specifically I have to make sure everyone knows the exact phrasing of a tag, and then later remember what exactly that tag was. It would be WAY easier to just have an album that everyone can see and can add too. The other way to organize more specifically in a group is via threads, but that is really…

                                        • Add the ability to create albums within albums and groups

                                          Sometimes you want to be able to create sub-albums within albums or especially groups. For example, you may have an album (or group) of airshow photos, but you want subgroups categorized by year, location or some other categorization.
