  1. ON board with Flickr since 2014, I would be pleased to look at the very bottom of my favorites, having had a lot of pleasure with older pics

    ON board with Flickr since 2014, I would be pleased to look at the very bottom of my favorites, having had a lot of pleasure with older pics. There are so many now that I can not reach them. This way, I couod also remove some of them from my favorites, making the list shoerter...

  2. Please allow users to configure content shown on the homepage, ie ,ake Groups, Suggested Photographers, even Followed Photographers OPTIONAL

    There are many comments, generally unfavourable, about the content that's now shown on the 'homepage' ie what you see on first login. In many instances, much of that content is irrelevant to the user, so please would you allow us to configure the content that gets shown?

  3. Unfollow

    There has to be a way to unfollow a huge bulk of people at once. I've had my account since early 2000's in my teens and have followed many random accounts. My tastes are different now and I'd like to refine my follow list without having to individually unfollow some people one by one as I go down the list. It is exhausting and bad User Experience.

  4. Quit using foreign language subtitles under photos submitted by foreign photographers and put the English translation below the photos

    Quit using foreign language subtitles under photos submitted by foreign photographers and put the English translation below the photos so that we here in America know what foreign photographers are saying and or describing in their photographs, after all we are an English speaking country and don't understand foreign language let alone trying to read what they are saying or describing as well.

  5. Provide a way to save or print a flickr photo with ALL its title, description, exif & geotag info.

    Provide a way to save or print a flickr photo with ALL its title, description, exif & geotag info included in the download file. Having only the image, without its captions,etc. defeats all the work of adding this info during upload, and the photo looses all context if downloaded without this info.

  6. banned

    ok, so I might forget to post comment on a group and get a Banned notice from Flickr HQ. But NO IDEA which group it is from, the group should be included in the email notice, so it can be sorted. After all Flickr should be a friendly place where hiccups can be sorted.

  7. Show each video in a video album with a cover photo, not a blank with a play-button!

    For a short time, Google+ shows a photo cover, taken from the beginning of the uploaded videos. As your photo view is so large, just showing a colored blank is really a waste. Now people can only read a small file name to guess the actual contents of the video albums. Please check my page to see what I am asking!

  8. Invites that work!!!

    Group Invitations are BROKEN - If I send an invite to a non flickr member, and they subsequently join flickr then after going through the signup process they come to a Yahoo landing page and have to then look for flickr, and there's no invite in they're new flickr account
    ALSO the screen name is incorrect - as listed on screen the name is different to that derived from an email search for the contact on an invite for a flickr member

  9. Thumbnails and Photos on Photostream not Showing

    The thumbnails are not showing on my Camera Roll, and neither are the photos showing on my Photostream. My internet connection is not the problem as I have no problems using other websites. In fact, I had no problems going thru my Google Photos account so it must be your site which is having the problem.

  10. Make Explore Great Again

    Maybe make the criteria to get into Explore less opaque?

    Flickr guards this like it's KFC's seven spices, but that just frustrates users over seemingly senseless, unstated rules. If photos with borders are not permitted, why not state that? If adding photos to lots of groups lowers its viability, why not tell users that? It's ridiculous.

    No wonder people resort to following thousands of accounts for exposure - that seems to be the only surefire way to hit Explore, while everyone else's photos are only seen by their followers and people who browse group pools.

  11. Reinstate photo subscription once you've commented on it

    The old interface 'subscribed' you to photos that you commented on, and when others comment as well, the photos show up on your page. This no longer happens and I miss this. If I've commented on a photo, I'm interested in it and I find other people's comments interesting too. Is there a way of reinstating this?

  13. Improvements needed when Blocking people

    I would like to see the blocking of people expanded. Much like Facebook. When blocked they can't see your stream or comments you make elsewhere.

  15. Add new photo privacy setting that makes photo private, but allows embedding elsewhere

    I sometimes upload photos that I want to embed at other websites where anyone there can see them, but I don't want them to be visible to anyone browsing my photostream or album or searching on flickr.

    This feature is allowed on the otherwise awful Photobucket. I have an account there for this purpose only, and I would like to not have to use Photobucket at all.

  16. Map is incorrect

    The northern part of Pakistan (Gilgit, Skardu, Baltistan, etc) are being shown under India - where are you picking up your map info from?

    Can we just have a simplified map function please or just integrate with google maps for more up to date and complete info.

  17. List photos in Camera Roll, Photostream, or Album etc.

    I know this idea is not new, but why hasn't it been implemented??
    Managing a large number of photos can be very tedious and time-consuming. Having the ability to generate a list (e.g. by Title and/or first line of Description) with or without a small thumbnail of photo, in Camera Roll, PhotoStream or specific Album etc. would be VERY HELPFUL!!! Allow the list to be printed or saved for further manipulation and also allow it to be downloaded for saving elsewhere on user's computer so it can be imported into common spreadsheets for further manipulation.

    At the present, I'm spending…

  18. Move the Comment Box

    Currently, the comment box is below all a photo's previous comments. This is inconvenient as one has to scroll right to the bottom of a page in order to post a comment on a photograph.

    I think it would save a lot of time if the comment box for photos was moved above all the photo's previous comments.

  20. "Groups" feature needs to be possible to access on mobile.

    Discussions have been removed from the mobile app.
    Discussions have been removed from the mobile site.
    The link to force view the full site from the mobile site has been removed.
    All external links to a page in the full site, when accessed from a mobile browser, automatically redirect to the mobile site, which does not allow access to discussions.

    I truly don't understand this decision. I don't own a laptop. I use my phone for everything. I am literally blocked at every turn from participating in group discussions. I would like to be able to do this.
