  1. 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.

      • 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…

        • Allow Administrators To See Photos of Pending Members Who Have Set Their Photostream To Private!

          I have created groups that are invitation only. When I get join requests, I do not approve anyone unless they have art work that is appropriate to the theme of the group. If the person who did the join request has a private photostream, I can't see their work. I can't approve what I can't see. Please make the work available for viewing to administrators approving a join request. I have had to deny dozens of requests because I can't see the work.

          • Redesign the Flickr Homepage With No Scrolling

            What Iwould like on my home page:
            A row of my latest photos.
            A row of contacts photos.
            2 rows of photos each row from one of my groups.
            My recent activity.
            2 rows of my favorites.
            No large photos, no clutter, no scrolling.
            A link to upload.
            More options about what I have instead of Flickr choosing.

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • I think contact email addresses should be mandatory.

                  Few people use Flickr Mail. or have it go to a spam account. Reaching people is tough. If they HAVE to post a contact email in their PROFILE section, it would be easier to do business with them.

                  • Let us arrange our Flickr homepage to show what WE want to see.

                    I would like to be able to drag & drop 'blocks' of content so I can arrange my Flickr home page to show what **I** want to see as well as what I want others to see, and I want to decide what sizes those blocks of content should be. The new layout with just two columns of 'latest pics' in my feed by others that I have to scroll, scroll, scroll to see, is NOT want I want to see first!

                      There are many comments, generally unfavourable, about the content that's now shown on the 'homepage' ie what you see on first login. In many instances, much of that content is irrelevant to the user, so please would you allow us to configure the content that gets shown?

                          The Contributors dropdown just shows the top contributors. I would like to see within a group all the photos posted to the group by someone who is not a top contributor. Can I do that now?

                            It is never good for anyone to know the quantity of contacts that we have. And also it is NOT good for anyone, especially other Flickr members to know how many people we are following. PLEASE create a way of hiding both the amount of people we are following and also hide the quantity of people who follow us. Only I should be able to know how many followers I have. And only I should be able to know how many people that I am following. I've had people blocking me just because they believe that I'm following too many…

                            • Photostream - Private View

                              Could you please add another option to the Photostream View drop down menu? The option would read "Private View" and would display only the photos that are marked as "Private". Often I want to find which of my photos are visible only by me. I think the Private View would be easy to implement and is a useful feature. Thank you.

                              • Lists!

                                Lists: to be able to add really good photographer to privately created lists.

                                Example: if you follow 600 people whom all are good, some will be exceptionally good.

                                Some of the fellas I follow I would like to "bookmark" in flickr so I can follow their work specifically, rather than sifting through all the ones I follow.

                                Note: I do only add people I think are good. But some are very good. Some of the guys out of India, US, etc.

                                Please implement, twitter has this and it works great as you can't remember them all and it is not…

                                    This has been brought up, discussed, and requested repeatedly over the last decade, yet Flickr has done absolutely nothing to fix the situation and address the issues with rogue administrators that at some point just take over a group and will not cooperate with any of the other admins who are trying to keep the group on track with its intended purpose!

                                    As a group founder you may or may not have experienced this issue as of yet, but if you have granted admin privileges or intend to grant admin privileges to any member of your group, be forewarned that…

                                      • 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!!!

                                        Please do not put "recommended" photos in my feed. It is annoying!!! Please stop! You didn't even ask if we wanted this!
