  2. 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.

  4. Uploader

    Good day, the current model of the Flickr Uploader, is quiet...useless. Direct upload from the folder, takes away the means to set up tags, album title, and sub title of the picture in question. To which you make more work on doing the personal touches in edit mode on your site. When it can be done, via the old Uploader at one's own desktop.

    Please, I understand currently, the company has been bought and there is a transition ongoing. To be honest...the design is made 'cheaply' and with no true after thought. Since I have been a member since 2007,…

  5. Bring back new Activities layout

    The new layout of the Activities page is dreadful. Very confusing, poor quality, pictures are too small and lots of space is wasted. Bring back the previous please, this looks messy and cheap and does not suit a photography websiteas Flickr.

  6. Option to unfix navigation bar

    Please provide an option to hide your navigation bar. This is to retain a control over my viewing area something I had before when I could just scroll away from it.

    I don't want things like this rammed into my face constantly as I scroll down the page. I only need it for a couple of seconds. I want to be left alone to view the contents without fixed elements stuck to my viewing area. So an option would be nice to satisfy those who need and those who don't it. Some of us don't need the bar present all…

  8. Number photos automatically

    It would be very helpful to be able to number the photos after they've been organized into a desired sequence in an Album. There should be a field reserved specifically for photo number (along with Title and Description...). Allow user to select which photos to be numbered, the starting number, and the number intereval (1, 5, 10....) to be used. The numbers could be made to pertain only within a specific Album, or throughout the Cameral Roll.

    Whenever displaying photos, provide a simple option to display, or not display, each photo's number.

  9. Comment box doesn't close when I click to post comment.. remains on top of photograph... annoying....

    New presentation is hard and slow to navigate.
    Clicking 'faves' is unpredicatable and slow
    Comment box does not close when clicked to post comment... remains for another comment... over the photograph.
    Prefer to view photograph in single column, not the two.
    Prefer to have my photographs with faves and comments included in the stream
    I love flickr.... this view has resulted in far fewer communications with flickr friends... I guess they don't like it either.

  10. Indicator to show that you have previously commented on an image

    When you fav an image the fav star is filled. Could it be possible to have something similar for comments so you know when you have previously commented against an image.

  11. Let users be able to access Flickr with any email account besides Yahoo

    People who want to use Flickr should not have to need a yahoo account to access Flickr. Users should be able to use any email account they want to have a Flickr account!

  12. Sort photos as I want them

    I'm brand new to Flickr, and already irritated with it. My whole point to upload here was to post my pictures as I want them and share them. But the only sort options I see are Date Taken, or Date Uploaded. That's utterly useless. If there's another option, I haven't found it.
    If I can't order photos in a way that makes sense as I choose, I may as well stick to posting them on Facebook.

  13. Hi, Favorite on my photo, I click on their name, I want their gallery not their favorites. Please change this

    Hi, this is what happens: Favorite on my photo, I click on their name, I want their gallery but I get their favorites. Please change this or make it an option. In the group Macro Mondays we post 1 photo each week and can get 100 favorites in an evening and would like to see what other people doing. I lose a lot time with the actual system. Here's my suggestion: change it so that when one clicks on their avatar he goes directly to their gallery. Come on guys, I do a little programing and I think you could…

  14. Sort photo by camera/lens/aperture etc.

    Why can't we have a feature that can organize our(or even others/group's) photos by:
    camera/lens/aperture/location/ISO/Shutter speed etc.
    It's much easier to show the picture I took from only this Camera/lens/ aperture to my friend when they ask for. So we don't have to go back to my computer to sort it, so people can stay longer on flickr browse around, and that's exactly what you want.

  15. Filter images by camera type

    Add Camera type to your filter search in advanced search. When looking for specific high quality free licensed images it would be useful to be able to pick cameras of a higher quality.

  19. Create sections ald self-selectable streams on the home page

    I'd like to see a home page that has the ability to add or remove section. For example, a photostream in one or 2 columns on one side, the ability to add a stream for a group (or groups) of my choice. Allow me to select the layout. Maybe have 3 streams vertical and allow me to move sideways to select a different group or view other details about the photo. Think like a rubix cube but with more than 9 tiles. You could have one tile on the screen show recommended. For example
    [R] [E] [G] [g] F =…

  20. Make it easier to find just new photos

    Sometimes I just want to look at photos as they come in. When I click on "Explore" it is pretty much always photos that have been up for ages with ten thousand + views and hundreds or thousands of 'favs'. I just want to *easily* look at the raw feed as photographers, good or bad, post their stuff. I think it is nice to see what just average folks post, as well as being beneficial. Then they know people are looking at their stuff and average people will get their photos rated more easily. Then they will get to learn…
