  1. Provide a easy way to download all my files before ending my membership.

    It would help everyone that doesn't want to migrate to Smugmug. The current way through zip file is very slow and hard.

  2. Re-establish a licensing relationship with Getty

    Flickr's intention to set up its own stock licensing site was great, but it never seemed to develop the features of the Flickr-Getty integration.

    Shop the deal with others like Alamy, Corbis etc. to get Flickr users the best possible deal (percentage and price), but by all means turn the Flickr community and catalog loose! Let's see what we can accomplish together.

  3. Let me initiate a blog post from a Flickr photo, with comment integration

    There are plug-ins to enable comment integration with blog posts shared to Facebook or Google+. The recent frustrations with Facebook privacy provide a unique opportunity for photographers to consider Flickr for blog photo hosting and integrated interaction with a broader photo community.

  4. Improve Flickr photo discovery in Google Search

    I used to get 30% of my Flickr photos views from Google Search. That seemed to suddenly drop off significantly at some point after Yahoo acquired Flickr. Perhaps under SmugMug Flickr can be viewed by Google as no longer directly competing with Google assets? Perhaps it's worth approaching Google to see if they can restore appropriate search indexing for images on Flickr.

  5. Bring Back Album Matrix Thumbnail HTML Embed Code Sharing

    I loved being able to show more Flickr photos in less space than is currently available, and it helps refer my Web site viewers to Flickr!

  7. Please reinstate the use of Auto-Complete of previously used personal tags

    Of all the features that have been messed about with; the one that i miss most is the ability to have the Auto-Complete Previously Used Personal Tags facility on the image page after it has been loaded.
    I know that this facility is available at the time of adding the image prior to pressing the Upload Button, but i find that i think of relevant tags after the image has been loaded and find it tiresome to have to use valuable time and energy applying the appropriate syntax in the little box of the Add Tags function.
    The Auto-Complete function…

  8. 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…

  10. Sorting on Photostream by date/time of upload vs date taken.

    Please allow sorting of photostream photos based on the date/time of upload instead of the date taken (or make it default). As a returning member, I have several photos from years' past that I'll be uploading, but it's highly frustrating to have the older images show up farther down the page when I upload, reducing the probability that they'll ever be seen.

  11. Link to photo page from home page images

    For images displayed on the home page photosteam, please provide a link to the photo page as they do from Explore, etc. The pop-up window is anything but user-friendly, hindering any real interaction and making the overall experience rather annoying.

  16. Make the selected album sorting order stick, please

    Whenever I upload photos to my albums - which are mostly ordered by date taken (newst first) - newly uploaded photos are always displayed at the very end, so I have to go into Organizr each time to resort them and make the album use the selected sorting order.

    It gets pretty annoying for albums one uploads just a couple of photos to every day. If the sort option was available on the album page itself, it wouldn't be such a problem, but going into Organizr and returning into the album afterwards requires a load of clicks - 8, to…

  17. Flickr map place suggesting

    can you guys update your Flickr map and geolocation? because it's kinda outdated with some places and ways and landmarks and namings. alternatives: GoogleMaps. or you guys could just assimilate or interconnect or inter-sync with Google Maps so that Flickr maps wont be that inaccurate. If you know what I mean.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Gigapixel Panorama Support

    Please consider adding Gigapan Gigapixel Panorama support. I uploaded a 32meg panorama, but Flickr does not offer any way for user to zoom in and out pan and explore the panorama. It would be an amazing feature to add Gigapixel Panorama support in Flickr. Heck, Flickr should consider in acquiring the Gigapan company.
