  1. Stop auto tagging my pictures with all of your bloody auto irrotation tags!!

    Quit the friggin' auto tagging of pictures with "outdoors" "wildlife" "trees" "garden" "june" "july" "beach" "train" "station", etc...

    And as I am in Britain, Britain is NOT in f***ing europe... DO NOT insult me, my British nationality and existence wit "europe" because I am not in facist gestapo europe and neither is my country, the united kingdom of Britain... we are more affiliated with the USA!

  2. Why set the limit of sharing photos with Groups?

    I noticed that today flickr sets the limit of sharing photo with groups as 60, it really bothers me. Why can't I share my pictures with more groups now? :(

  3. Auto tagging is ridiculous

    I bet the guy who figured out what's in a picture and supplies tags automatically thought it was a really clever idea.
    Well, if it were smart enough, it would be, but it's not, so it isn't.
    "sky" ? "road" ? "building"? Yeah, those things appear in my pictures,
    but that's not the subject and I bet there is "sky" in almost every outdoor picture taken! Yeah, that will narrow things down!

    What is the end result of this "cleverness"?
    Wasted time and effort, as no doubt it slows down the upload process,
    and then it wastes my time getting…

  4. Could you please stop adding tags yourself ? The statue of a man is not an ANIMAL !!

    flickr always adds tags that have no link whatsoever with the posted pics.
    Please note that your clients are adults and know what tags to add exactly!

  5. 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.

  6. Please make it possible for us to see from which URL visitors came

    In the old version of flickr statistics I was able to see from what URL my visitors came. I could see if it was a group or a gallery, or what website. With the current stats I sometimes get an info only on how many came from android, iphone, etc. I miss this feature, because this way I was able to track down if my images were published on websites without my permission. Please reinstate it when possible.

  7. Please rework/enhance the comment system on the photo page

    I'm an activate flickr user since more than 8 years now with lots of followers and therefore lots of comments on my photos, especially when they got explored. And I have to spend a high effort of time if I would reply to every single comment I get because the current commenting system especially answering comments is not user friendly !!!

    When I press the "answer" button the user gets linked into the normal comment box, the page scrolls to the bottom and I can just write a new comment. Thats maybe fine for one answer. But if I want…

  8. Option in Batch edit Photos to show photos with correct proportions & display file names

    While I'm batch editing photos, they are displayed as square thumbnails. This makes it difficult to see what photo is what when you have many similar photos(some may be panoramas which are cropped and you can't really tell the difference from the square thumbnail). It would be awesome to have an option to display the photos in their actual proportions.
    Currently to get around this, I have a photo viewer open on my computer alongside of Flickr. In Flickr I have to hover over the photo to see the file name so I know which photo I'm editing--again this could…

  9. Clicking onto my photostream shows 2 images side by side, I prefer 3 side by side.

    3 images side by side is far better than 2 side by side.

  10. I want "featured" photos even less than "recommended" photos

    Stop with the "featured" photos! Since I can't "x" them off of my feed, I hate them even more than I hate the "recommended' photos! Stop this invasion of my feed for the sake of possible "engagement" with photos I would never want to see in the first place.

  12. Option to permanently hide specific users from search results

    It would be so helpful if there was an option to not just temporarily hide a user's images from search results, but hide them permanently.

    When I'm looking for a certain kind of photo, sometimes I'll try many different combinations of tags. I don't want to click and hide 100 spam/pinup/Second Life accounts for every particular search. If I know a user posts nothing but inappropriate or irrelevant content, it would be nice to just hide them from all future searches.

    This issue makes it hard to use Flickr sometimes. I know you guys keep closing the requests asking about…

  14. Comment Stats for Groups

    I teach online illustration studio courses at two universities in the States. When tabulating final grades, I must comb through hundreds of my student's posts to count feedback entries. A stat tool in groups counting comment stats for each user would be extremely, extremely useful.

  16. Collections will Improve Digital Asset Management

    My company uses Flickr for digital asset management. It does the job, but would function much better if collections were more prominently featured on the top navigation bar and in profiles.

    It makes no sense to have albums as the primary page when albums live within collections.

    I've seen many users asking for this for years! Why has Flickr not made this change? It will benefit Flickr to capitalize on this service.

    Please make this change! It will enhance the user experience tenfold!

  17. Flickr Photo Editor

    The new Flickr photo editor fulfills a great need for online photo editing after the discontinuation of the online Aviary photo editing facilitation.

    However, there are a few critical requirements that need to be urgently considered for improving the utility of this new tool:

    *Provision of a cropping grid with standard formats such as one-thirds, center-lines.

    *Provision of a perspective control tool or straightening tool.

    *Facilitation for scaling down images to standard display sizes such as 1024x, 2048x.

    *A watermarking tool.

  18. Allow Administrators to move images (reorder them)

    There are times when members post images before a new theme begins. I would like to be able to move those forward or move others from the previous theme backwards (whichever is easier) so that everything in one theme will be together.

    I can move images to re-order them in my own albums, so the technology to do this exists.

  19. In the profile section I suggest that we should be able to choose in what order the images appear.

    In the section of images that we create ourselves in our own profiles, I suggest that we should be able to choose in what order the images appear.

    For example:
    Oldest taken
    Newest taken
    Newest posted
    Oldest posted
    Most faves first
    Least faves first
    Most views first
    east views first

  20. Choosing the pics displayed on your pool

    I wish there was an option to let us select the pictures we want to show at our POOL.

    i'll describe a situation as an example:

    I like photographing cars and aircraft, and I upload my pics on my Flickr page. I like showing my portfolio to my friends, so I always send them the URL of my Flickr page. However, let's imagine that i've also photographed a friend's birthday or wedding party, and i've uploaded more than 100 pics of the party on my Flickr page, creating an album for these pics.

    These party pics would be visible on…
