  1. View latest 5 images from all my groups, on one page.

    A way to view 5 or so images from all my groups, on one page.

    Groups is how I find new people to follow, I believe this is how the Flickr community also flourished. Surface the images!

  3. Make clicking on Location bring up phone's navigation app

    Please make the Location map feature in the Android app able to launch the phone's default mapping/navigation application.

    It was be VERY helpful if one could click on the location of a geotagged/mapped photo and have the Flickr app for Android launch the default mapping/navigation app so that one can navigate to the location the photo was taken at.

  4. How do I see the file names of my photographs? The file names no longer appear in the EXIF data.

    I cannot see the file name of my photos. Although there is a lot of information visible in the EXIF data area, the file name does not appear. I want to use the file name as a default title or in the description field, so I can correlate them with my stored files. Not having the file names available makes Flickr useless for backing up my files.

  5. pro

    When attempting to sign up for Pro, the main page says it's $34 with strikethrough pricing, but when you click through it asks for $49... sorry. I want to upload and receive benefits of pro but you can't tease me with a price and then not allow me to buy it as advertised.

  6. Please make the search options bar disappear/minimize when scrolling down (on desktop)

    It covers the upper quarter of my screen and is only needed when I start my search. Afterwards I just want to see pictures on as much of my screen space as possible. Thank you!

  8. I would like the ability to modify the order of my galleries

    If it was possible to sort galleries, it would be easier to find galleries of interest, (for those who would like to use a lot of galleries)

  9. Improper handling of errors

    after linking my yahoo account with fllickr, a page was shown to update my information then i input in the neccessary things. on clicking the submit button here was the error i got

    {"success":"ok","result":{"primary_confirmed":1}}

    url: https://www.flickr.com/account_prefs_update.gne

    i know is an alert event that was not handled with a proper message but is kind of unprofessional for users to see this kind of errors on a huge website such as flickr.com

    pls do something about it. My name is Omonzogbe Ehinor, A Web Developer From Nigeria. (Any reward for me?)

  10. Give error about private photos instead of 404 Page Not Found error

    When I send a link to a private album, if the recipient doesn't have access, it says "404 page not found" instead of saying the photos are private. If they are not logged into Flickr, you could say "These photos are private, try logging into Flickr". If they are logged in, but don't have access to the photos, you could say "These photos are private, try requesting access from <the owner>."

  12. analyze my "favorites" to discover patterns in the EXIF

    I can discover some of the recurring elements in my collected "favorites" but perhaps Flickr gurus can make an algorithm or app service that once can point at one's favs and, voila, in moment all the EXIF is sorted into patterns, too; for example, perhaps it turns out that most of my identified favs are shot with 50mm (equivalent) lens at f5.6 and 1/320 second on Canon dSLR cameras during the months of Jan, Feb, March. The geotags cluster around the Masif Central, etc, etc. Some of this may be intuitive to my eye already, but other patterns not so…

    I have Flickr on my computer and in my iPhone. Because I want to have safety copies of all my fotos. I would like the pictures I take - and receive - in my messages and sms to be included at Flickr.
    I also think it would be good if those pictures were added with the date they were taken/sent, and not as now with the date they are uploaded.

  15. Following account organizing

    I strongly strongly suggest Flickr has organizing/"group"feature for following account.

    I have lot's of following, actually everybody does. The thing is they are in every different photography aspects, some of them are portrait, some landscape, some others.
    When I try to find a particular following(s),
    I found it's terribly hard to find them, unless I remember the name of every one or date I started to following them.

    Personally, I work as a interactive designer in LA, I think you guys should really consider this feature, even for PRO exclusive.

  18. Subscription Renewals

    When you send an email reminding me that my subscription is due for renewal, it would be good customer service to include the cost.

    It is not very professional or customer friendly to send, what is in effect, a bill, without stating the actual cost.

  19. Arrange photos in numerical order rather than Dewy Decimal. E.G. under your system India 42 comes after India 3396.

    Arrange photos in numerical order. Right now e.g. India 42 comes after India 3396. This is weird and its appears that it is based upon the Dewey Decimal system. Why?
