  1. More Options for Those with Visual/Processing Impairment?

    Hi,

    I have a visual processing disorder and find most of the default settings on Flickr difficult to see and process. Is there a way to set things to be more user-friendly for someone like me? (low-contrast fonts, more static pages, less visual noise on all the pages?) Thank you!

    • More features for mobile application

      The mobile experience on Android is rather thin.

      I trust I can speak for many when I say that the application is not good enough: It lacks many features that the full site has, but the application should replace the site, since you advertise it on the mobile site.

      Let's start with something very basic, and then move on to my other points.

      Notifications:
      You can disable notifications, but you cannot select which event you want to be notified about. Disabling notifications will disable all notifications, which is something I don't want.

      Notifications have other issues too. The app allows…

      • Allow users to post private images in comments

        Previously I was allowed to post private images in the comment section to show different POVs and crops of an image. As of late this has been disallowed, and I request that it be returned to a viable option when posting comments under my images.
        Or,
        explain how to post private images in comments so I can do it myself.

        NOT all "improvements" are improvements!

              • Flickr Needs To Improve The Ability To See All Photos Displayed

                After changing the uploaded dates on five of my best photos to keep them on page one, I was not able to see all of my photos displayed on page one and I had the same problem when I clicked onto page two. Some of my photos were showing up white where the image is suppose to be showing up. I am able to see the titles of all my photos, but not every image shows up. I tried signing out of Flickr and then signing back in, but this did not solve this problem. I also tried restarting my…

                • Roku screensaver

                  I love the Chromecast screensaver. What is really needed is a Roku screen saver. You have a roku app. Adding the screen saver feature should be fairly easy. Somthing with nice fade effects! Roku is the best streaming device and would be sweet to have televisions be a good picture frame when not in use. Thank you for your time.

                    Is there a possibility in the near future to allow uploading of gifs?
                    I think it would be a great idea to have these here.
                    It would be an interesting addition to flickr to have these.

                      Add an option to disable favorites. I do not like photo collectors with thousands of favorites marking my images as a favorite. I tend to block many of these folks, but would prefer to just disable favoriting on my photo stream.

                        App is good but there is no option to add more folders like what's app or Bluetooth. Currently it takes backup of camera folder due to which we failed to upload all pics from other folders like Google photos. Need improvement in Flickr on this issue

                          Hope I can have an option to view all photos in small thumbnails like last time, because my internet speed is slow each time I want to view other pics in the albums it take very long time to loading the pics ! For this reason I not came to Flickr that often .

                                  How difficult is it to expend it with an option
                                  Who has a link to the album where photo is or link to the photo.
                                  Now if I want to hide my photo from the public, but to show it some friends or family, they have to have an account on Flickr. I can not convince all of them to open one, but I would like to send them link by e-mail, so they can browse through an album or photo stream.
                                  Thanks for reading, I hope it's possible.

                                  • I want to upload albums in iCloud Photo Sharing to Flickr

                                    Apple's older iPhoto was great at uploading albums directly to my Flickr account for many years. I've recently changed from iPhoto to Apple's newest software, Photos, and I do not have the option of uploading albums from Photos to my Flickr account. Very frustrating! We need a software fix either from Flickr or from Apple or from both firms working together!

                                    • I often meet with other flickr members on local nature reserves so it would be a great help if we could search for members by their location

                                      If Flickr could allow a search facility for members to search for other members by location it would enable members to get to know people in their area and so growing friendships

                                      • Stop making the view jump when I'm looking at the photos (as a page view) it defeats the point.

                                        Stop the page view from jumping (refreshing) around while it's being looked at.

                                        • Flickr app- Should be able to embed photos into group discussions.

                                          It is really frustrating to not be able to embed photos into group discussions via phone. Many groups would benefit from this. I am in a daily photo journal group, and can only work on it from my desktop at home.

                                          There should be an easy way to copy the HTML for different sizes (or even if just set on medium 500) in the app.
