  1. Uploader for Windows

    What a croc of s***, I installed it, put a USB stick into my computer and I get a message saying Flickr Uploader transferring 100 images to your account. Wait, I didn't tell it to do that so, now I have to spend 30 minutes trying to remove the pictures from my Flickr pages.

    Forget this uploader its more of a pain than a help, it just assumes that you want to load everything to your Flickr which I certainly do not and it doesn't even ask you first.

  4. Ability to Report Recommended Photos without Opening Them

    I keep getting photos of partially or completely naked people recommended by flickr on my all activity page. Ideally, I'd like these not to be there (I mostly photograph bugs, I don't know why I keep having these recommended). Barring that, I'd like some way to report the image without having to open it: have a report option in the drop down menu that gives you the ability to hide a recommendation. I'm assuming that flickr is erroneously considering these safe???

  5. increase or eliminate daily follow limits

    I fail to see how following someone is considered spam. Allowing 20 new follows per day is hardly enough and, on some days, doesn't even allow you to return follows of new followers. Inconvenient and frustrating, especially on a newer account where you are trying to build.

  6. i would like the editor on the down load page, as some times it may not go through and you have to reload the image, and we want to present

    to have the editor on the down load page it makes sense, to present a finished image for the viewers , not work on it when ppl are looking at the page !

  7. Fix repeat images appearing in albums

    When syncing a collection from lightroom I will often see that the number of photos listed in the lightroom collection and the number of photos on flickr are different, sometimes by hundreds of photos. This is usually due to duplicates of photos from the collection appearing at seemingly random places throughout the flickr album, it makes my collections which I spend a lot of time collecting and organizing seem very unprofessional.

  9. Embed system not working

    Ok, pics are on public before someone mentions it. Was in the past able to embed pics before. Wouldn't say no prob as it still required work to get the code right. But now? No matter what is tried it gets rejected and have to download the pics and re upload somewhere else. Not so simple as is claimed.

  10. why have YOU not me created a second account and now every time i want to upload photographs it goes to the unwanted account. This is totall

    sort out the friggin problem of creating a second account when i have not asked for it nor do i want it. every time i now want to upload photographs it goes to the new account you lot set up which is a right royal pain **********. you have made what used to be a simple exercise now a total nightmare.
    all i want to do now is find somewhere of removing all of MY pictures from my original flickr account and set up one with google photos or similar. YOU ARE SIMPLY A WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT

  11. Add

    Add a "Comments" tab on the Uer's homepage

    In the same way there is a "Faves" tab , it woulb be interesting te see a "Comments" tab , so that we have have an idea of how a specific user behaves on Flickr, what are his picture preferences, and so on.

    Additionally having a way to filter the comments (and this would be also the case for faves) to select only ones for a specific target user would be great

    Thanks

  15. Sync Flickr on the computer with the Flickr app

    I use Flickr on both my desktop and my IPhone. I noticed there are several features unique to one but missing from the other. An example is blocking people (which is much easier on the Iphone app). To block someone on the computer you need to take several steps to identify and confirm your decision. In the app it just takes one step - clicking on Block User. Much better. Plus on the Iphone you can easily tell how many photos the user has posted - good way to separate active users with non-contributors, My recommendation is to incorporate the…

  16. Enable more actions on mobile site

    Mobile site is v limited. Can't add, delete or update tags, Can't see which groups a picture is in, can't add to a group, Is not much use for anything other than viewing images...to do anything worthwhile I have to switch to full web page...

  17. Please make it possible for us to see from which URL visitors came

    In the old version of flickr statistics I was able to see from what URL my visitors came. I could see if it was a group or a gallery, or what website. With the current stats I sometimes get an info only on how many came from android, iphone, etc. I miss this feature, because this way I was able to track down if my images were published on websites without my permission. Please reinstate it when possible.

  18. Copyrights Feature: Block Screenshots/Print Screen on Flickr

    Hello,

    I'd like to suggest a missing feature which I think would be very useful for many users: a built-in code that blocks any screenshot/print screen attempt on Flickr.

    It could work like many copyrighted websites use: by simply blocking the keyboard commands and displaying a friendly message....something like that:

    "Like this amazing image? You can request the photographer "mr.xx-hyperlink" a print/or buy this image on Flickr by clicking here" IDK lol..

    I feel like this feature could be like an extra copyrights protection and an incentive for customers and visitors to purchase our photographs and artworks / getting in…

  19. Fix statistics tracking bugs

    In the past five hours, my total number of reported views has decreased by about 3000. First the previous day's count disappeared from the total (at 7PM Eastern, the start of a new day in GMT), and now several more days seem to be gone. In many other recent cases views have not been counted for hours at a time, and in still other cases there have apparently been sudden and inexplicable bursts of activity. Since as a Pro user I'm paying for statistics reporting, I expect a much higher level of service and accuracy in these numbers, and at…

  20. I would love to see the "replies to your comments" option activated again. Otherwise, it's hard to have a "conversation" with our contacts.

    I don't see the "replies to my comments" option any more. If it's gone, I'd sure like it to come back!
