    • Bring back the mobile site!

      I loved the easyness of the mobile site, to be able to see how many faves and comments I have in a single look. This is not an improvement!

      • Probably a common problem. Can't download on chrome on mobile.

        I heard that you had to pay for the pro package to enable your photos to be downloadable by other people. I did pay for it. But yeah, no downloading on the most commonly used browser on mobile. I had my friends try to no success. I need this capability because I am always taking photos of different people and they cant get these photos to their device to use.

        • 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…

          • Where has the 'edit' option gone in the user's photostream options?

            The 'edit' button seems to have disappeared from the photostream user options, so we just see the 'densely-spaced' photo view without the option to go to edit mode and see photo stats, for example.

            Another 'improvement'?!

              The edit photo feature on the Flickr photo page is currently disabled pending an upgrade. The older version of Aviary that was being used stopped working last weekend, and Adobe is working with us to upgrade to the latest and greatest version of Aviary.

              This means that after a brief delay (while we get the update in place), you’ll have access to a more stable, more feature rich photo editor to complement your Flickr experience!

              Sorry for the inconvenience of this unexpected upgrade, but we’re confident it will be worth the wait. Please review this help article for more information: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN28158.

                • Limit the number of groups each photo can be added to

                  Many photos are added to as many as 1,000 groups, even if the photos are completely irrelevant to the groups. This has become a huge problem for group administrators, requiring either a queue or constant attention to what is in the group.

                  There used to be a limit to the number of groups any one photo could belong to. Eliminating that limit drastically increased spammers ability to mass share their content. Please restore that limit.

                        • FlickrMail Suggestion

                          One suggestion for FlickrMail. It's good to have the new mail icon on each user's page, except that there isn't one on my own user page, so I cannot directly access my mailbox page. I can work around it by putting a bookmark to the mailbox page in my browser, but how about adding a mail icon on the user's home page to allow this?

                            • 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 like (or heart) near favs button

                                  I'd like to have two buttons next to the other users' photographs: a "like" and a "favs" (the same used by 500px). The "Like" (or heartin 500px) button is useful to communicate that picture like but do not want to put it among their favorites.
                                  Without "like" the number of the favorites become huge and useless for any personal research.
                                  Thank you.

                                  • elevate "Collections" to full tab status, right next to Creations tab

                                    Flickr Collections is an IMMENSELY valuable feature... Allows photogs to build collections of interest, and continuously add new project albums to the various collections.... The ultimately creates a powerfully interesting portfolio. I always provide my audience a Direct Link to my Collections page! I am sure it is frustrating for new visitors to find their way back to the Collections! It only appears in one drop-down menu --- AND it NEEDS to be a PROMINENT TAB

                                      • I see the new BETA on the cameraroll view. It takes away the ability to share the REAL URL of the image. Do NOT do that!

                                        • Please fix the album slideshow URL link feature. I want a separate URL for my slideshow that I can use as a link for friends/clients

                                          I used to send a URL link of my slideshow to friends and clients. Now the URL link takes me to my static photos not the slideshow. Please bring back a separate URL for slideshows. Pleeeaaassee!
