  1. Tags are not metadata anymore

    Tag Parsing - Tags are not metadata anymore

    Hashtags are embedded in so many descriptions and titles, they should not have to be treated as metadata by us content creators. It would be helpful if, during the insert, hashtags are parsed and copied into Flickr's metadata fields. Tags could be parsed from Exif data and text captions/descriptions.

  2. Confirm correct auto tags

    We can remove auto tags by clicking the X in the tag's button. Could we have a feature to add a tag that auto tags identified without having to type it into the add tags box? Ctrl-, Alt-, Cmd-, whatever-, and the remove "X" changes to a "+" add, some such?

  3. Keep the 'favorites' on photos that I make private in case I make them public again!

    It says: ''Changing a photo to a stricter privacy level will remove any favorites that have accumulated. It will also change the URL of the photo.''

    Seriously Flickr? What if I want to make this photo public again one day?!

    I cant believe that after all these years you havn't figured out a way to keep the 'favorites' when making a photo private. Facebook definitely figured it out, so why cant you?

    Honestly my experience with this (losing all the favorites when making a photo private) is the biggest turn off I've ever had in using your platform.

  4. 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.

  5. The problem with vertical photos

    Vertical pictures look generally lousy. That is because Flickr gives more importance (aka sceen space) to horizontal pictures. Vertical photos should be made larger.

  6. Integrate The Commons more into the overall site and user experience

    Honestly, I don't know what category to put this under, so I'm putting it under Search Experience, but it could also fit under Photo Page & Photostream.

    Seriously Flickr, the rest of your site is absolutely beautiful and intuitive. So why is it when I go to the Commons, I'm stuck with an ugly, outdated, and unintuitive layout? It almost feels like a completely separate website. Why hasn't the search results page been updated to look like the rest of the site? Why can't I browse the ENTIRE commons at once, and look at trending tags, like I can under…

  7. Upload tags

    When I upload my photos from Windows app 'Photo Gallery' my tags are kept but the people I have tagged do not stay tagged. It would be helpful if these tags could also be uploaded with the photos.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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

  17. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
