  4. Landscape Swiping Iphone 6S+ is not working

    If you use the flickr app on a iPhone 6S+ and you open a album. Swiping is ok as long the iPhone is in portret. As soon you turn the phone into the landscape mode you are only to swipe porter photos. With landscape photo's the swipe is not working. Is this a known bug?

  5. Photostream - Private View

    Could you please add another option to the Photostream View drop down menu? The option would read "Private View" and would display only the photos that are marked as "Private". Often I want to find which of my photos are visible only by me. I think the Private View would be easy to implement and is a useful feature. Thank you.

  6. on creative commons - need more info on page about status

    right now its very confusing and convoluted how it works. - no copyright info, should also include the wishes of the person uploading. each place has its own rules and each place makes it hard to find it. if they post things to the commons area, one assumes you can do what you want with it. but it seems you can't.

    so under the copyright - in that section, it should also say creative commons attribution *** or not for commercial use. or something like that. so i don't waste my time in it. thanks

  7. Photo Page zoom - Scrolling with wheel conflicts with mouse movement

    If you zoom in to a picture on Photo Page with the little magnifying glass, if you scroll using the mouse wheel and the mouse pointer itself shifts even a little tiny bit, it takes priority and jumps to where the cursor is.

    There should be some sort of threshold or delay of mouse movement if the user used the scroll wheel, or the scroll wheel just takes priority.

    Because people don't glue their mice to the table.

  8. Add the ability to specify individual access to albums

    The three options for access currently are public, friends and / or family. These categories are far too broad. I would like to be able to specify that specific people have access to an album, either by flickr user accounts or by email address.

  10. What do I need to do to to make the meter display accurate photo-count?

    Dear Madam or Sir,

    There is a photo meter on the main page of my account Dodo Pizza World. The meter currently shows that there are 1411. Whereas, in fact there are 3986. What do I need to do to to make the meter display accurate photo-count?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Sincerely,
    Fedor

  12. better code

    I would love it if Flickr mail could tell the difference between a response to an ongoing conversation and spam. If a friend and I are going back and forth, IT'S NOT SPAM! And to suddenly see "Slow Down, Partner! we're trying to be safe" is simply sloppy, incompetent programming.It's really simple, IF reply is chosen THEN not spam. But then, this should have been fixed for years. Hard to trust a program that misses the very basics.

  13. Photostream needs a MAKEOVER!

    I believe Flickr's Welcome Page needs a major make-over. Two important things:

    1) If you're following 500+ users, it's really inconvenient scrolling down to go through all the new photos the followers may have posted. Even my mice screams at me to not abuse its wheel.

    [Suggestion]: Instead of one photo per scroll, have a collage with different sizes of photos, the more interesting the photo, the bigger it's size -- but not too big to take over an entire page. Just a nice, clean and collective collage layout on the mainpage to checkout the new photos from the followers…

  14. Searches starting at the Commons page https://www.flickr.com/commons don't give as good a result as using tags

    Searches starting at the Commons page https://www.flickr.com/commons don't give as good a result as using the tags and specifying Creative Commons. I tried both, for example, for "Muslim kids" and the Commons page turns up nothing at all, while the other method turns up tons of photos. Please fix, as it is much easier to go directly to the commons page and start searching!

  15. 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????

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?).
