    • 1/3 of search results is taken up by advanced search features. This makes scrolling and looking at the images very cumbersome. If this was

      Make the search features minimal. This will improve user experience. Now, 1/3 of the screen is being taken up with search features. I find viewing images in this way, not an enjoyable experience. I have to scroll many times.

      • Better / special view for panorama's

        When we watch a panoprama, it's shown very small. I think panarama's should get a special treatment for this, so it will show from one side, to the other side of the screen, and it will actually looks huge and impress people. So the effort and effect of a panarama is actually translated into the eyes of the people.

        • Fix flickr on Roku TV

          Hi, I linked my Roku flickr account so I could view the photos on Roku TV. When I click the channel on TV, there is interference & no entry. What is causing this. The flickr logo I see on Roku is blue with a red final r . Is this the same company? What seems to be the problem tonight?

          • Photostream Positioning

            For sometime now the Photostream does not maintain positioning to be able to go back to the correct point after a photograph is viewed. It is a little frustrating because each time I have to scroll forward to the point I was at when I viewed the photograph.

              • Need "Forced" Back-up

                your app should have a "Backup Now" button because for some reason it is not Auto Uploading. I would like the option of forcing it to do it.

                    There is one section which is seen on the right side titles "People you may know". Currently only add button is only there. There should have been a button to remove the suggestion, such that new should come there. I don’t know whether this point had been suggested by some other person…

                    • Fix license filter for Creative Commons photos

                      License filter for Creative Commons photos:
                      I recognized problems with the filter for Creative Commons, e.g. when I search photos for Orphx. Then only two results will be displayed when I choose license "All creative commons". But there are more photos with this license, e.g. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ydolon/7185449657/ (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) .

                      Regards,

                      • Make it easier to find videos

                        Unless I am missing something, there is currently no easy way to separate out and view just my uploaded videos. It is odd to me that there is a way to filter pictures so specifically that you can just see all pictures that have a cat in them, but I can't choose something to just see all videos I have uploaded. This is something that would make my flickr experience better. If there is currently a way to do this, it is not very intuitive and maybe should be made more obvious.

                          I am the administrator for the Bull River Ranch Hummingbird Photo Workshops. I would like to create another group that is dedicated to the art and science of hummingbird photography. Is there a way to post long detailed articles with instructional images for the group that always stay on top. Also, I noticed all public groups on hummingbirds are inundated with horrible images of these beautiful birds that are perched on feeders, in bad light, unsharp, no composition, and busy backgrounds. I would like to showcase the best images being done and it would be nice to have a group…

                          • Improving the Apple App

                            I am hoping there is an update coming for the flikr app for iPhones that would allow the information bars at the top and bottom of the images to appear in landscape mode. Currently while the phone is on its side I'm unable to favorite pictures. I (and possibly others) would appreciate the implementation of this feature, thus making it easier and faster to scroll and favorite the full size images on the phone.

                              Hi,

                              I have a visual processing disorder and find most of the default settings on Flickr difficult to see and process. Is there a way to set things to be more user-friendly for someone like me? (low-contrast fonts, more static pages, less visual noise on all the pages?) Thank you!

                                The mobile experience on Android is rather thin.

                                I trust I can speak for many when I say that the application is not good enough: It lacks many features that the full site has, but the application should replace the site, since you advertise it on the mobile site.

                                Let's start with something very basic, and then move on to my other points.
