  1. Build a way to thing out images based on favorites

    I had 2600+ photos, but a lot of them didn't hold up over time, so I decided to cull the herd, and only keep the ones other people have favorited... I ended up manually adding all the flagged photos to a set, but then had no way to remove all the photos not in that set... so I set all my photos to private, then made the ones in the set public... not realizing along the way that ALL favorites got lost...

    I've given up, burned it down... deleted everything... I hope that someone makes this process easier for the…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Status Message

    Very often I see my followers use their screen name to place a status message such as "away for a day," " on vacay," "I'm back" or something else short to alert their followers. The screen name is only 20 characters, most of which is an actual screen name.

    Could there be a field on the header, next to or below our names, people could use if they wanted to display a short status message? I think this would help quite a few active users.

    I know I wanted to leave a status message before, but my screen name was…

  9. Galleries

    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

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Lists!

    Lists: to be able to add really good photographer to privately created lists.

    Example: if you follow 600 people whom all are good, some will be exceptionally good.

    Some of the fellas I follow I would like to "bookmark" in flickr so I can follow their work specifically, rather than sifting through all the ones I follow.

    Note: I do only add people I think are good. But some are very good. Some of the guys out of India, US, etc.

    Please implement, twitter has this and it works great as you can't remember them all and it is not…

  15. 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.

  18. Allow larger thumbnails in organizr in browser

    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.

  19. Where are photos viewed
