  1. Photo size needed at 1280

    For inline posting on forums to give others a quality photo-viewing experience, the 1600 size is often too large so users can't see the entire photo. And the 1024 size is too small to really give a good view on most forum layouts and on the most common monitor screen sizes like 1920 x 1080.

    We really should have a 1280 size generated with these other sizes.

  3. Get GPS coordinates from videos

    When I take a video with my iPhone, exiftool knows the GPS coordinates that the video was taken at. Flickr can read those coordinates when I upload a photo, but it seems like it ignores them when I upload a video.

  4. Modify album-viewing interface to include larger-sized photos and captions

    This is a suggestion to modify the current (Sept. 2016) interface for viewing albums in Flickr photo-by-photo. I suggest that the tabs on the top of the page that read "Flickr", "You", "Explore", "Create", etc. be removed to increase the amount of room (real estate) available for viewing the image in full-size. By default, it would be ideal to view images closest to their full-size.

    Currently (Sept. 2016), viewers need to scroll down to read captions. The image is therefore partially cut-off/unviewable as viewers read the caption; ideally, the image should be fully viewable while the reader reads the caption…

  6. create a way where photo teachers can use it with students existing school accounts w/o personal flickr accounts

    I am a photo educator and prefer to use Flickr when teaching photo classes. It is excellent for collaboration with other students, and allows for sharing, backup and fast reviewing of images. The issue is that most if not all school districts do not allow teachers to tell a student to create and use an account outside of their school's account due to privacy and safety concerns. I can't stand using google drive and want a way where we can issue school controlled flickr accounts so if they post something inappropriate, we can remove it. Please help.

  7. "Video" category on camera roll

    It should be useful a "Video" category in Camera Roll view, so you can find all your video uploaded in one place, no matter when they were shot.

  8. Make adding photos to list of Groups more robust and user friendly

    Adding photos using list of Groups is now so tedious and frustrating that I will no longer use the facility.

    1 – I am unable to add photos to existing groups in Firefox from my main PC. Instead of the template being in the 2*3 arrangement, the selected photos appear in an “list” form down the page. Although the “Add to Group” icon turns blue. Clicking on it does nothing. This has been like this for over 2 months.

    2 – Using IE I can add chosen photos to add to groups. They are in the correct 2*3 arrangement, and…

  9. Please provide setting for how groups appear so we may go back to the old format.

    The new groups tab is a mess with the new "recent photos details view". It takes up way to much real estate on the page and makes it a nuisance to scroll through and quick identify them. A simple, stream lined list view was much better.

    Recently the format of the groups was changed to look more like a online magazine, replacing the simple, effective and quick way to find information you are looking for through the list view.

    Here is a link to a good book.

  12. 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.
    Max.

    It looks very nice and I'd love to be able to show my stream to friends the same way.

  15. Make it easier to find just new photos

    Sometimes I just want to look at photos as they come in. When I click on "Explore" it is pretty much always photos that have been up for ages with ten thousand + views and hundreds or thousands of 'favs'. I just want to *easily* look at the raw feed as photographers, good or bad, post their stuff. I think it is nice to see what just average folks post, as well as being beneficial. Then they know people are looking at their stuff and average people will get their photos rated more easily. Then they will get to learn…

  16. Please make albums within groups an option

    Please allow groups to have albums.

    The only collaborative sharing option on Flickr is via Groups. If I make a group for different family members to contribute photos too it ends up one long photo stream. If I want it organized more specifically I have to make sure everyone knows the exact phrasing of a tag, and then later remember what exactly that tag was. It would be WAY easier to just have an album that everyone can see and can add too. The other way to organize more specifically in a group is via threads, but that is really…

  18. 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…

  19. Remove or provide alternative on mosaic feature in collections

    When creating collections of work, the only option for a cover image for that collection is a mosaic.

    This creates a random assortment of images from albums within the collection. For a professional photography page, this looks horrible when displayed on my website. Not only does the resulting image come out small, it looks very cluttered and unorganized. I would like the option to add my own single photo cover option of my choice just like albums.

    Also, for users who like the mosaic option, the ability to choose your own photos from albums would be greatly preferred over relying…

  20. Fix bugs in Beta group

    1) Search for tag "2016-36" in group "DNCB". The interface claims there are 51 photos, when actually 52 exist.
    2) the Advanced search > Dates is confusing. Many photos taken on Aug 24, but none appear unless the left-hand date is either <blank> or set to Aug 23. Conventional behaviour would expect them to appear when left-hand box is Aug 24 or earlier.
    3) Advanced search button has combo box for selecting Date Taken or Date Uploaded as the sort criteria. Has no effect; sorting is always by Date Uploaded.

    Hello!

    Engineering is saying/asking the following:

    They did the following:
    1. Go to the group pool page https://www.flickr.com/groups/dncb/pool/
    2. Click on the search icon just above the group pool
    3. No option to search for tags so I search for 2016-36
    4. I get no results so I click on the advance icon to get options.
    5. Set to Search in Tags.
    Result:
    Nothing returned. Is this how you are searching?
    If you know what photo that is not in the search results, can you please check that photo on the photo page and see that it’s in that group and has that tag?

    Thank you!
