  1. See all shared albums in one place

    If somebody shares an album with me I can only see it via the email link. I would like to have a section in the menu called 'Shared albums' where I can see all albums shared with me by different people.

      • Flickr pin badge

        Here's an idea! What about issuing Pro users with a Flickr pin badge, when we're out and about we can recognise one another AND share that experience on Flickr!!!!

        • rearrange videos

          The function to "arrange by date (oldest first)" does not work for me in a video folder. Videos appear in a random order and can't be rearranged. Any chance this can be fixed?

          • Allow users to upload/download and support higher quality lossless formats such as PNG or TIFF

            Hi. Can you please allow users to upload lossless PNG files?!! JPEGs are not the best quality for users to share with their relatives, friends, and coworkers. Many people use Flickr for all types of purposes, including business purposes. I also use Flickr to store some of my photos. But JPEG is a lossy fornat and when I upload my high quality images, I lose some of the quality on Flickr.

            • Is it possible to know how many photos do we have in each group?

              Include a counter that shows the number of photos that you have in each group.

              • Ppload date prior to the date I signed up with Flickr.com

                Request the ability to date a photo with upload date prior to the date I signed up with Flickr.com. I currently have some photos uploaded that I'd like to post to my photostream on the date they were taken (which was before my Flickr.com account was created).

                • More control over photostream appearance

                  Giving users absolutely no control over how their photos are presented on the first page everyone sees is bizarre.

                  Even just some basic options like how the photos are tiled, or the spacing between photos would be great.

                  You only have to look at the number of users who manually add a white border to their photos, in order to make their photostream look better, to know this would be well-received.

                  Simply bunching as many photos into the space as possible in a dynamically resized window just isn't enough for people that care about how their photos are presented.

                  • I think contact email addresses should be mandatory.

                    Few people use Flickr Mail. or have it go to a spam account. Reaching people is tough. If they HAVE to post a contact email in their PROFILE section, it would be easier to do business with them.

                    • Getting to and from Organise mode back to Standard viewing mode is ridiculously clunky

                      It's very clunky to get into an organise mode where I can add albums to collections.

                      Then it's IMPOSSIBLE to get directly back from that organise mode to viewing the photos. You have to go back to the main Flikr site, then select YOU > Albums (or whatever). That kind of basic navigation should be on every page.

                      I can see that the main photo viewing section is probably newer than the organiser section and they don't connect properly yet. Getting that working better would help alleviate that particular source of frustration.

                        why isn't flickr smart enough to upload multiple files taken on multiple dates in multiple folders ? if my camera is smart enough to organize it why isn't flickr? I should be able to upload as many as I want, all at once.

                          • Creation Returns and Refunds too difficult to request

                            Put a "Return" button on the Creation page where you see your Order. It is incredibly hard to return an item that was done wrong. I will never order from Creation again because it is too difficult to return something. My item came with bubbles in it and I had to search through the Help forum to find where I have to send an email to request a return. This is too difficult. Look at how Amazon does things and see why they are successful. Returns are easy.

                            • Allow the ability to add sound track to still photos. I have a seperately recorded audio of ambient sounds that I would like to add.

                              Allow the ability to add sound track to still photos. I have a separately recorded audio of ambient sounds that I would like to add. If Flickr is looking for ways to differentiate itself from the other photo apps, this would be a useful feature.
                              It might be best to have the audio initially at half-volume so that viewers in a public setting do not disturb others, but have the option to turn the volume up.

IT IS NOT. when I use the search, it is not to find all the pictures I know already. It is to find pictures from other accounts. I would love to have the possibility to choose whether I want to see pictures from accounts I often visit or just any accounts. The latter I need much more often.

                                      se place a Watermark over all my Art photos to protect their integrity and stop this thievery.

                                        • Hi,

                                          We pay quite a lot for flickr, my suggestions are to bring back Picnic editing tool-which was excellent-and to let one change the name in one's flickr page-link. People get married, new surnames are added. These two features should be provided for free as one pays to keep a flickr account. Hope someone in the management gets this to the top decision making people, it will only help flickr since it would be considered good customer service.

                                          Thank you very much,
                                          AVS
