  1. Galleries should be able to be accessed on the mobile app

    Why is this not possible? It seems really shortsighted.

      • Provide a way to remove GROUPS from my Flickr Feed

        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!

            • 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…

              • FLICKR NEEDS A DUPLICATE FINDER

                FLICKR NEEDS A WORLD CLASS DUPLICATE FINDER
                So I have just upgraded to the PRO as I have decided that FLICKR will be the reference library for all the family photos. I had already uploaded about 30K images (which took days - but I expected that). from my mac. However I then decided that I would upload any images on my wife's laptop and all the phones. Unfortunately despite the fact that FLICKR says it doesn't upload duplicates a good number have slipped through the net. On my mac it's easy I just fire up PHOTOSWEEPER and I can easily…

                • Download all (my) pictures when having download limit? (Download Sync or Torrent)

                  If i would want to download all my pictures from Flick I would always get over my download limit of 500 GB (or 150 GB).
                  Then I would have a speed cap, so that would it made impossible to download my pictures as a zip.

                  Example:
                  I have 1500 GB pictures, that would take me 3 months to download, that would mean 3 months (or 10 when having download limit of 150 GB/month) without closing my pc (and internet connection), otherwise my zips would be corrupt.

                  So a FREE (download) sync would possible be an option, or an option to…

                      • A Flickr Backup Experience

                        You need to implement a mobile feature like Amazon Prime Photos and Google Photos whereby one can automatically backup select folders to Flickr. I would pay you this money over either of the aforementioned services on Android. Tie this in with sweet desktop management and you've got a winner.

                          • Hi,

                            Hi,
                            When you "mouseover" a photo, the name of the file and name of the photographer appear
                            I want to show the description and not the name of the file.
                            Ideal is perhaps to be able to choose name or description.

                            My english is horrible... I hope it's understandable.

                            • If Someone Loves My Photo Enough To Add It As A Favorite, They Should Also Post A Comment

                              People are often adding my photos as favorites, but the people do NOT always comment. I think that Flickr should make a new rule about people being obligated to always post kind comments on anyone else's photo that they love enough to add it as a favorite. If someone loves my photo enough to add it to their list of favorites, then that person should also post a comment. Isn't this fair?

                                  • 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…

                                      If I hit on the button in the upper right that implies full screen, it only fills my browser window, *not* my actual screen. Tried this on Win 10, Chrome and Brave.

                                      Viewing pictures on Flickr in their full glory is just not possible without downloading them first.

                                        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.

                                        • 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?
