  1. Create a citation page/modal for people using creative commons images

    I use Flickr a lot for finding images to use within presentations. The Creative Commons filter is great. But it would be really nice if we had a consistent pattern for giving credit to the photographer.

    Check out the citation page from BrainyQuote. This is available via a single quote and makes it easy to provide adequate citation.

    • I can't add pictures to groups. Doesn't happen all the time. But I can select the photos but then nothing. Glitches.

      • Stop favorites from disapearing when making an image private

        I had an image up that some people had faved. Then I made it private, and then public again a bit later. Then suddenly it had 0 favorites, but the same amount of viewes.
        If this instance wasn't a bug, the feature should be changed so that such stats about the image is retained even when its privacy is changed back and forth.

          • stop making my group pictures the first page when signing on instead of my recent activity page

            Not sure why flickr decided to make my group pictures the opening page when signing on to flickr, but please go back to having the recent activity page my my account be the opening page.

            Thank you

            • Flickr should have the option to let us choose which pictures would be shown in our gallery!

              This way, we could avoid pictures we would like to upload to Flickr without having people seeing them on our gallery.

              FOR EXAMPLE: Maybe I want to have my Gallery (my Flickr portfolio) made of only Sunset images. However, I had to attend my sister's wedding and have uploaded all the wedding pics to my Flickr.

              I don't want these wedding pics in my gallery portfolio! I just want them in an album...

              Hope you guys can understand what I mean;

                • Why can't I open my Flickr mobile app to my own photostream? It defaults to pics of people i'm following and I can't change it.

                  When I open Flickr, I don't want it to default to my friends photostream. I want to open to my own page and then choose to look at a friends photostream. This is almost a creepy forced functionality and I see no way to change it. Please fix, or advise if I just haven't figured out how to do it.

                        • Log In Using Flickr Username Only

                          I think it would be lovely if we could log in to our Flickr accounts by putting in our username and password only. No email is required, because sometimes people forget which email they put down, but people tend to remember their usernames. Nobody can have the same username as anyone else, so why not make life easier for everybody? Yeah? I'm down with it, at least (:

                          • Photo travel planning

                            Hi Flickr Team! This is an idea how to improve the Flickr service and to create value add for people / photographers planning a photo trip: In addition to text comments and faves there should be another button which adds selected geo tagged images automatically to a map ( e.g. from Here) . After having finished adding several images to this background map the result is a gpx trail with all the individual selected images in addition. So it will be easy to plan a furture trip to the same locations other FLickr users have been before. Such a feature…

                              I want to organise something in my Photostream, but cannot simply select Photostream as the basis of my organising action. I'm referring to the pull-down menu that initially has the value "All your content" in Organizr.

                                    • Allow users to group their groups as they see fit.

                                      Allow users to sort their groups by whatever category they deem relevant and useful. If I like street, landscape and macro why not let me place that label on those groups I review (that are on topic to my interests) and then have them appear - sorted under those headings that I chose - on my pages?

                                      The current system is truly cumbersome since it only displays all groups in ascending or descending order.

                                      • Redesign the Flickr Homepage With No Scrolling

                                        What Iwould like on my home page:
                                        A row of my latest photos.
                                        A row of contacts photos.
                                        2 rows of photos each row from one of my groups.
                                        My recent activity.
                                        2 rows of my favorites.
                                        No large photos, no clutter, no scrolling.
                                        A link to upload.
                                        More options about what I have instead of Flickr choosing.

                                        • Flickr need to stop asking me for a recovery e-mail adress when I already have two.

                                          Every time I try to access flickr it keeps asking me to add an e-mail address for account recovery. However I already have two different addresses added to my account. So can you please stop bugging me about this?
