This forum is for you to make product suggestions and provide thoughtful feedback. We’re always trying to improve our products and we can use the most popular feedback to make a positive change!

If you need assistance of any kind, please visit our community support forum or find self-paced help on our help site. This forum is not monitored for any support-related issues.

Tell us how we can improve your Flickr experience.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Non-destructive photo editing

    Non-destructive photo editing through Aviary would be great so you can always revert back to the original image.

    Right now, you either have to keep your originals outside Flickr; or, have duplicates of the same photo in Flickr - the original plus an edited version. I do the latter since Flickr is my primary backup and storage option, which is a little clunky.

    • Make Collections more presentable. Improve Mobile (non-app) experience.

      Love the Collections page and I think it should be more upfront with the albums instead of hidden in the background. Also, there is no shortcut to share a Collection. It seems like such a great feature is being neglected! It didn't even get an upgrade when Flickr redid the album pages. Please give Collections and updated look and also add it to the forefront! The feature is also neglected in the Mobile app and needs to be brought in there.

      While I'm at it, the mobile experience for non-app users needs an overhaul. The interface is terrible when using…

      • Please add albums in groups!

        That way common experiences of group members may be easily shared!

          • Too many clicks to see photo details

            When you click a photo there should be a way to see the details. With the current change you need to click the photo and then click the photographer to get to their stream, then re-click the photo you were just looking at to see the details. Suggest adding an icon (i) maybe, on the banner at the bottom where you click favorite, forward etc. so you can jump directly to the narrative and EXIF, location etc.

              • Please offer the option of toggling albums to list view, and even better, to alphabetize the list.

                I find list views (both for albums and for groups) to be far more user-friendly than the image views, which are too busy, confusing, difficult to manipulate (e.g., to do a "find" for a particular album, for me at least because I have a lot of albums, often requires loading more than one page if the particular one I'm looking for is down the list somewhere. You still allow an alphabetic list view in the groups list (PLEASE don't do away with that, I also belong to a large number of groups!)

                  • I was going to write about uploading issues, but this Feedback page is not clear as to how it works.

                    explain how this Feedback page works! The space above invites one to type in feedback, but then doesn't explain how to send the feedback. Only a "vote for existing idea" or "post new idea" buttons appear. I assume that much feedback is not a "new idea", but the user still wants to describe to Yahoo/Flickr the specific issue, rather than vote on what someone else wrote.

                        If I already shared an album with someone and want share it again - I need to find sharing link under settings/sharing... would be much easier if it was accessible from album page

                          • Hi, Since flickr likes to tag people's pics, why don't they tag 'Explore' for the pics that make it to Explore?

                            Hi,
                            Flickr should tag pictures with the word 'Explore' that make it to Explore. Since you are already tagging pics, why not tag Explore pics with that word, too?
                            Thanks.

                                  When you "mouseover" a photo, the name of the file and name of the photographer appear
                                  I want to show the description and not the name of the file.
                                  Ideal is perhaps to be able to choose name or description.

                                  My english is horrible... I hope it's understandable.

                                        • I would love to have the ability to purchase a HD from Flickr that has all my pictures on it.

                                          HD are so cheap nowadays, it would be nice to pay Flickr money, depends on your pictures size, and they mail you a copy of your pics on HD. PLEASE DO IT
                                          also another request, I want to be able to sort all my pic by size this is going to me a lot and I'm sure it will help other users as well.
