  1. Help the user find good matching content for photobooks.

    I was thinking of making a photo book, but I couldn't find a way to easily filter my content to find which pictures meet the resolution standards. Also, I use linux as my primary desktop, so I appreciate any ongoing support for that platform.

  3. Editing Albums

    Editing Albums and images in general is too cumbersome. You should be able to delete, edit, add to album from the photo stream or camera roll page. when inside the organizer, it's impossible to see the image you want to remove from an album bc it's too small. And after double clicking to see the image, it's too small. Also, you have to remove one image at a time. The entire organizer should be recoded. Organizing albums and moving things around takes too much time and there are too many interfaces to do simply tasks that you can provide as…

    Thank you for your post.

    It is possible to edit, delete and add a photo to an album from the Camera Roll page not the Photostream page. We will keep your idea in Gathering Feedback to share your concerns regarding image size in organizer.

    Thank you!

  4. To avoid duplication, before uploading, user should be given an option, whether to proceed or replaced the existing files.

    To avoid duplication, before uploading, user should be given an option, whether to proceed or replaced the existing files. Why on earth, this easy process flickr still unable to perform??

  5. Best display size a problem?

    I noticed recently that my 600 pixel photos are being displayed at ~660 pixels with noticeable deterioration in quality. I assume this is to do with a change in 'Best display size'. Pictures should not be displayed at a size larger than their actual submitted size.

  6. date taken date uploaded

    Please remove the "date taken" note and replace it with the "date uploaded" message. Hardly any of the uploaded photos is actually taken on the uploaded date. The best way is to use the latter one. And if you really want anyone to know when the picture is taken, you should build a possibility to fill in the date taken by the one uploading any picture.

  7. Allow legacy users to change URL

    I see that there is an option to set a personal URL. I don't believe I ever set one but I can't change it. It seems to have at some point automatically created a personal URL based on my original username. Because I don't think I ever set this myself, this restriction should be lifted.

  8. front cover

    I think it would be great ,if we had the option of a front cover for our photosream . Many members have a great amount of photos in their photostreams and tend to take photos of varius subjects wich change after sometime . The consept of the front cover is simple . You got a page (lets say no more than 50 photos ), where a personal selection of your photos is showcased in order to show other flickr members the range of your work . eg Your personal favourites of your photostream or one photo of each place you…

  9. advertising sucks when it prevents viewing images in group pool

    Advertising is a necessary evil; but it really sucks and is counter-productive when the advert blocks photos in the pool. Please provide a simple way to acknowledge the ad and then move on. please limit the ad views.

  10. Recycle Bin for Deleted Group Discussions and Comments

    Groups can have many moderators and admins.

    And though I understand group creators should always carefully choose which privileges are given to "trusted" members when they deem they need help monitoring their group, it's often very difficult to ascertain just how someone will act once they are elevated to administrator status, and given the power to make drastic deletions and changes within the group.

    Not all admins or moderators will agree on everything concerning the group, especially when the group allows open discussions to be created and discussed by group members, moderators, and admins.

    Unfortunately any admin can just delete…

  12. I would like to add the Google Analytics to the flickr account.

    The flickr stat doesn't show details and options for monthly stat. It will be better if we can add the Google Analytics to track the views and users.

  13. Photo size needed at 1280

    For inline posting on forums to give others a quality photo-viewing experience, the 1600 size is often too large so users can't see the entire photo. And the 1024 size is too small to really give a good view on most forum layouts and on the most common monitor screen sizes like 1920 x 1080.

    We really should have a 1280 size generated with these other sizes.

  15. Get GPS coordinates from videos

    When I take a video with my iPhone, exiftool knows the GPS coordinates that the video was taken at. Flickr can read those coordinates when I upload a photo, but it seems like it ignores them when I upload a video.

  16. Modify album-viewing interface to include larger-sized photos and captions

    This is a suggestion to modify the current (Sept. 2016) interface for viewing albums in Flickr photo-by-photo. I suggest that the tabs on the top of the page that read "Flickr", "You", "Explore", "Create", etc. be removed to increase the amount of room (real estate) available for viewing the image in full-size. By default, it would be ideal to view images closest to their full-size.

    Currently (Sept. 2016), viewers need to scroll down to read captions. The image is therefore partially cut-off/unviewable as viewers read the caption; ideally, the image should be fully viewable while the reader reads the caption…

  18. create a way where photo teachers can use it with students existing school accounts w/o personal flickr accounts

    I am a photo educator and prefer to use Flickr when teaching photo classes. It is excellent for collaboration with other students, and allows for sharing, backup and fast reviewing of images. The issue is that most if not all school districts do not allow teachers to tell a student to create and use an account outside of their school's account due to privacy and safety concerns. I can't stand using google drive and want a way where we can issue school controlled flickr accounts so if they post something inappropriate, we can remove it. Please help.

  19. "Video" category on camera roll

    It should be useful a "Video" category in Camera Roll view, so you can find all your video uploaded in one place, no matter when they were shot.

  20. Add like (or heart) near favs button

    I'd like to have two buttons next to the other users' photographs: a "like" and a "favs" (the same used by 500px). The "Like" (or heartin 500px) button is useful to communicate that picture like but do not want to put it among their favorites.
    Without "like" the number of the favorites become huge and useless for any personal research.
    Thank you.
    Max.
