  1. For Flickr Slideshows embedded from Flickr on www Need to toggle 'Show Info' on the images - New Flickr Slideshows-No good with No Info!

    For Flickr Slideshows embedded from Flickr to 3rd party websites we NEED to toggle 'Show Information' on the images like in Old Flickr Slideshows.The New Slideshows are Useless with No Information - Random images with no information on what viewers are looking at. The current slideshows were working on Jan 27 are now just black boxes - http://www.kununurra.org.au/khs/digital-archive/collections - S Yahoo's infinite wisdom in deprecating the old Flash slideshows has left broken websites all over the web. There is a need to be able to toggle 'Show Info' - Showing Photographs that show absolutely no information is totally useless in…

    • Non-destructive photo editing

      Non-destructive photo editing through Aviary would be great so you can always revert back to the original image.

      Right now, you either have to keep your originals outside Flickr; or, have duplicates of the same photo in Flickr - the original plus an edited version. I do the latter since Flickr is my primary backup and storage option, which is a little clunky.

      • You may think it is a brilliant idea to show me all the pictures from our account, because I'm on our flickr page so often. IT IS NOT.

        You may think it is a brilliant idea to show me all the pictures from our corporation's account, because I'm on our flickr page so often. IT IS NOT. when I use the search, it is not to find all the pictures I know already. It is to find pictures from other accounts. I would love to have the possibility to choose whether I want to see pictures from accounts I often visit or just any accounts. The latter I need much more often.

        • Yes, go back to the Original way this Program for my photos worked. I cannot relax and find time to use it anymore.

          i have seen some of my Paintings being sold as Prints in Ottawa, after someone got them here and a Watermark with my name 'masked ' over the image would have denied this. Plea
          se place a Watermark over all my Art photos to protect their integrity and stop this thievery.

          • Organizr: select only items from my Photostream.

            I want to organise something in my Photostream, but cannot simply select Photostream as the basis of my organising action. I'm referring to the pull-down menu that initially has the value "All your content" in Organizr.

            • Flickr should have the option to let us choose which pictures would be shown in our gallery!

              This way, we could avoid pictures we would like to upload to Flickr without having people seeing them on our gallery.

              FOR EXAMPLE: Maybe I want to have my Gallery (my Flickr portfolio) made of only Sunset images. However, I had to attend my sister's wedding and have uploaded all the wedding pics to my Flickr.

              I don't want these wedding pics in my gallery portfolio! I just want them in an album...

              Hope you guys can understand what I mean;

              • Situate replies directly below comment

                We need to be able to reply to a comment on an image and have that reply nested directly below (and maybe indented) the appropriate comment. It's very awkward to have the reply so far down the comments stream.

                • Why can't I open my Flickr mobile app to my own photostream? It defaults to pics of people i'm following and I can't change it.

                  When I open Flickr, I don't want it to default to my friends photostream. I want to open to my own page and then choose to look at a friends photostream. This is almost a creepy forced functionality and I see no way to change it. Please fix, or advise if I just haven't figured out how to do it.

                  • Create a citation page/modal for people using creative commons images

                    I use Flickr a lot for finding images to use within presentations. The Creative Commons filter is great. But it would be really nice if we had a consistent pattern for giving credit to the photographer.

                    Check out the citation page from BrainyQuote. This is available via a single quote and makes it easy to provide adequate citation.

                      • Stop favorites from disapearing when making an image private

                        I had an image up that some people had faved. Then I made it private, and then public again a bit later. Then suddenly it had 0 favorites, but the same amount of viewes.
                        If this instance wasn't a bug, the feature should be changed so that such stats about the image is retained even when its privacy is changed back and forth.

                        • Hi,

                          We pay quite a lot for flickr, my suggestions are to bring back Picnic editing tool-which was excellent-and to let one change the name in one's flickr page-link. People get married, new surnames are added. These two features should be provided for free as one pays to keep a flickr account. Hope someone in the management gets this to the top decision making people, it will only help flickr since it would be considered good customer service.

                          Thank you very much,
                          AVS

                              • Make Collections more presentable. Improve Mobile (non-app) experience.

                                Love the Collections page and I think it should be more upfront with the albums instead of hidden in the background. Also, there is no shortcut to share a Collection. It seems like such a great feature is being neglected! It didn't even get an upgrade when Flickr redid the album pages. Please give Collections and updated look and also add it to the forefront! The feature is also neglected in the Mobile app and needs to be brought in there.

                                While I'm at it, the mobile experience for non-app users needs an overhaul. The interface is terrible when using…

                                  flickr keeps getting better and better. I organize all of my photos into albums... albums are sorted by collections online, based on the year.
                                  Please make collections viewable on mobile devices. I click a collection and I see only the albums from the year I've chosen rather than scrolling through dozens of albums

                                  • 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…

                                        I see that there is an option to set a personal URL. I don't believe I ever set one but I can't change it. It seems to have at some point automatically created a personal URL based on my original username. Because I don't think I ever set this myself, this restriction should be lifted.

                                        • 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.
