  1. 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…

      Let us choose which folder(s) to be uploaded automatically!
      Now EVERYTHING on my phone is being uploaded, which is utterly STUPID! I want to use Flickr for my PHOTOS, not every screenshot and download I make on my phone.

      • Flickr app- Should be able to embed photos into group discussions.

        It is really frustrating to not be able to embed photos into group discussions via phone. Many groups would benefit from this. I am in a daily photo journal group, and can only work on it from my desktop at home.

        There should be an easy way to copy the HTML for different sizes (or even if just set on medium 500) in the app.

        • Please stop with putting "recommended" photos from random people in my feed. I only want to see my friends and family not the whole world!!!

          • Log In Using Flickr Username Only

            I think it would be lovely if we could log in to our Flickr accounts by putting in our username and password only. No email is required, because sometimes people forget which email they put down, but people tend to remember their usernames. Nobody can have the same username as anyone else, so why not make life easier for everybody? Yeah? I'm down with it, at least (:

            (please do this. please.)

            • 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?

                • adding members to a group

                  The overall groups experience is non-intuitive and very cumbersome.

                  Creating a group with the appropriate type - private, semi-private, public - is confusing. Private groups being non-discoverable, I needed to convert it to searchable (semi-private) which was not possible. So I had to create a brand new group. There's no way to "clone" a group, so I had to try and get everyone from the old group signed into the new group.
                  Which brought me to the "searching for people" experience, which is quite lacking. Most members I searched for could not be found (perhaps they're private too). So now…

                    • 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…

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                              • 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…

                                    • Make Explore Great Again

                                      Maybe make the criteria to get into Explore less opaque?

                                      Flickr guards this like it's KFC's seven spices, but that just frustrates users over seemingly senseless, unstated rules. If photos with borders are not permitted, why not state that? If adding photos to lots of groups lowers its viability, why not tell users that? It's ridiculous.

                                      No wonder people resort to following thousands of accounts for exposure - that seems to be the only surefire way to hit Explore, while everyone else's photos are only seen by their followers and people who browse group pools.

                                      • Add a Like feature like on Facebook

                                        I would like to have a Like feature like Facebook has where you can like it, love it, laugh at it, dislike it, etc, without having it added to your favorites.

                                        • NEW — Notification Center Here, you'll fi... QUIT THIS Annoying pop-up please!!

                                          PLEEEEASE QUIT THIS ANNOYING POP-UP ON THE LAPTOP. The tablet and phone don't have it so it is possible. Can I please use Flickr on the laptop again without this message popping up again and again and again? Please. It's almost unworkable like this.

                                          NEW — Notification Center

                                          Here, you'll find notifications of your recent activity on Flickr. This includes easy access to FlickrMail. We think you'll enjoy what we've built so far.
