  1. Be able to upload videos greater than one GB

    I love sharing my HD videos, but Flickr only lets me upload 1 GB videos maximum. That is ridiculous, and is annoying because most of my videos are greater than 1 GB. As long as we don't use more than our TB of data in total, may we please upload videos greater than 1 GB????

  2. names in email

    In the Flickr mails, please use the same names as in photo viewing online.

    I hope this is already clear in one sentence. To be sure I will add some more description. For instance, in the online viewing I see that a certain user has added a comment. In my daily digest mail I receive a notice thereof, but with another username. This is confusing. The same goes for faves. So I am constantly trying to remember the two Flickr names for each of my contacts/friends.

  3. Flickr Mail notifications (in Flickr) should appear the same way whatever the page....

    The notification bell is a very nice new feature. It happened that I missed some Flickr mails for some time because the notification number is reset to zero after you click on the bell.
    Flickr Mail notifications (in Flickr) should appear the same way whatever the page, and, in my opinion, as the little red disk, near the profile icon.

  5. Let user set whether they want their photostream to be viewed by default in the order of 'date taken' or 'date uploaded'

    When I send my photostream to my friends to view, it is messy as the default setting displays the photos in order of 'date uploaded'.

    This is because I have uploaded odd photos from older dates but I would like the option to select a default arrangement option for people looking at my photos.

    It is very frustrating to me.

  6. Clear selections after a period of inactivity

    I recently lost a set of photos because I had previously selected them to make a new album. After a few hours, or perhaps the next day, I came back and selected a few new photos to delete. The other photos were still selected so they were deleted too. Because I was deleting more than one photo, I didn't notice the number to delete was incorrect.

    A good policy would be to use cookies to "time out" selections after a reasonable period of time (perhaps 8 hours?).

  7. Responsive group window and other feature requests

    Hi Guys,
    Some development tips came into my mind during the daily usage of Flickr (web and mobile)
    Web:
    - add photo to group window should be responsive or adjustable, when I use it on a bigger screen it takes 20 rolls to get to the bottom, instead of having a bigger window and see 10-15 groups on one
    page
    - in add photo to group window you should indicate at each group, how many pics I have left that day/week/month - just as in the mobile version
    - arranging my groups by how many pics I have left that…

  8. less usless modal dialogs

    Please stop using these "modal popup dialogs". I now get two dialogs. One about changing password. And another about the "NEW — Notification Center". Nothing on the page is usable until you press the close X. The next time I log in you have to start closing these again. Very annoying and useless.

  9. show original photo size by default on accounts (large 2048 restriction)

    A few years ago you made a change to not show original size. This was to help avoid downloading the images and so on.

    The problem is that this is on by default, and I think there are many people who would share original size images. But they don't go through the hassle of figuring out the settings.

    So have original size on as default, but let people restrict it by going to the settings. Not put the size restriction on by default and have people figure out the settings as it is now.

    Screens on desktop computers and tablets…

  10. Please hide the ability for people to know how many contacts that each and every Flickr member has

    It is never good for anyone to know the quantity of contacts that we have. And also it is NOT good for anyone, especially other Flickr members to know how many people we are following. PLEASE create a way of hiding both the amount of people we are following and also hide the quantity of people who follow us. Only I should be able to know how many followers I have. And only I should be able to know how many people that I am following. I've had people blocking me just because they believe that I'm following too many…

  12. Choose auto-uploadr folders

    Let us choose which folder(s) to be uploaded automatically!
    Now EVERYTHING on my phone is being uploaded, which is utterly STUPID! I want to use Flickr for my PHOTOS, not every screenshot and download I make on my phone.

  13. Stats - Source breakdown of views from Mobile devices

    Stats - Source breakdown of views from Mobile devices:
    Under the Mobile heading in the source breakdown section of stats they just give the type of device (android/ios/web) with numbers of views from these devices.
    That is not helpful to me. I don't care what device views are coming from, I want to know what they looked at! or how they found my photo(s), the same as with the other stats.

  17. I don't like that my older albums are no longer available. I also don't like archiving, photos are wanted even if more than 5yrs old.

    I would prefer that all my albums would continue to be available via the album link. We already have paging so there's no reason that old albums should disappear. There is no way to get to the old albums.

    Yes, I can locate my old photos by date in the archive section, but no longer can I get to the whole album group which would cover many dates and might even only select some of my favorites from each date.

    Even if there is a valid technical reason to archive these albums, there should be a way to get to…

  18. Flag photos for removal from group

    Oftentimes, groups are tied to a specific topic. Members often won’t read the rules before adding photos, Moderators might abandon the group and not pay too much attention..
    It would be nice to be able to keep groups clean, and add the ability to flag photos for removal from a specific group – as a reminder for the moderator.

  20. Group Discussions for Mobile app

    Hi Flickr Team! I am keen on keeping connected to the various discussions in the groups I have joined. However, I often do not have access to my laptop during the week. Is there a way to include group discussions in your mobile app? That way, no matter where I am, as long as there is internet connection, I can access and participate in group discussions from my phone.
