    • I can no longer fave or comment on the home page

      The home page has changed so that I can't fave or comment on photos. This is an awful change. Please put this option back.

      • Non 2:1 photospheres as 360

        Dear Flickr.

        Could you please make non 2:1 photosphere pics to be visible in a 360 format as well? Like in Facebook? Sorry, but it's little annoying to process/crop pics at the exactly 2:1.

        Tom

          • Ability to Download Full Resolution from Mobile Site, Desktop site, and Apps (All Versions of Flickr)

            Hi. I have a free account with Flickr with the 1000 GB storage. I want to use Flickr as my main website to create albums and share with my family and friends. Many of my friends and family do not have a flickr account, and I do not want them to have to create an account just to view and download images. I also want them to be able to download the full size image, if they would like to, to their computer or mobile device. When my family and friends click on the link on their mobile phones, sometimes…

                  • I need customer support for a photobook i purchased. Why isn't there any way to contact a person for crying out loud?

                    How about a human being that you can speak to or text when you need some help? It's disgusting that you'll sell a $65 photobook and then provide ZERO ABILITY FOR YOUR CONSUMERS TO GET ANY STINKIN HELP. My photobook came damaged... and it's impossible to figure out how to address it. Unreal

                    • The problem with vertical photos

                      Vertical pictures look generally lousy. That is because Flickr gives more importance (aka sceen space) to horizontal pictures. Vertical photos should be made larger.

                      • Easier group invite

                        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.

                        • Search only your own photos with apps

                          Would it possible to set up Flickr apps so you can only search your own photostream and not those of the whole world as well? I'm becoming really frustrated with seeing pornographic and other inappropriate images when just trying to check the over 8000 images in my own, personal photostream. Thanks.

                          • 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…

                                Please allow us to make the thumbnails larger in the organizr interface. I'm tired of guessing what the picture is of when I'm trying to organize pictures into batches. Resizing within the browser doesn't increase the thumbnail resolution, and if you increase it too much, the window content gets confused.

                                        I would like to be able to share galleries in a way that someone else can add to the gallery. In some way authorize someone else to add photos.
                                        Galleries are a great way to showcase winning pictures of a group contest. But only the person who created the gallery can add pictures. That person will be the admin or one of the admins of the group. It would be easier if all admins of the group could be authorized to add pictures

                                        • Make clicking on Location bring up phone's navigation app

                                          Please make the Location map feature in the Android app able to launch the phone's default mapping/navigation application.

                                          It was be VERY helpful if one could click on the location of a geotagged/mapped photo and have the Flickr app for Android launch the default mapping/navigation app so that one can navigate to the location the photo was taken at.
