  1. Licence Type Indication on Image Corner

    Can there be a small icon on the corner of the photographs which indicates whether the image is creative common or with full rights and so on. This way, one can search for all images and select according to need.

    • For explore. Can we have a button that will show any pics that we have in explore? ATM we have no way of knowing unless another flickr user

      Bug. Cannot add images to groups which allow more than 3 images.
      When i try to add photo to these groups instead of a grid with 6 tiles for images the tiles are stacked vertically extending below the box which obstructs the add photos button.
      This problem has been with me for over a week now.
      Can we have it fixed please?

      • Present great Flickr Groups in the Weekly Flickr

        There are some awesome groups in Flickr that do more than just collecting photographs. It would be great to present some of these groups in the Weekly Flickr blog.
        I'm part of the admin team of Flickr's 100 Best (https://flic.kr/g/dhB69L). It is the Hunger Game of Flickr and has a limited pool of 100 awesome photographs of all kind. Over 10'000 members challenge the actual pool photographs to get theirs in. Our group is highly active with over 50 challenges a month.
        Besides the fun aspect, members get a serious and constructive critique in our group and fantastic…

        • 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.

          • Why do I have to click FOUR buttons to close the MAC Flickr uploader?

            Unless I intend to use the Flickr uploader, I usually close the application; I really cannot express enough that it is frustrating to have to click FOUR buttons before it closes ==>

            1. click the application icon
            2. click the settings icon
            3. click Quit
            4. click Quit button on the 'Are you sure' control.

            AT least one of these steps is surely unnecessary.

            • Two public areas per person, "Best" and "Ordinary" LOL

              The Flickr suggestions found on web pages on line encourage us to limit our best photos to the top 6 or so as people do not work through an entire feed to find our better ones. Have you considered having two public feeds per person? One for the "best of best" and the other one for others? I take my photos out of "public" for this reason. I know most people won't take the time, although I often do, to look at a couple or more of pages of photos of someone else. This way, people would be encouraged to…

                • Compact notifications

                  I find the current notifications system too verbose and chaotic.
                  I'm new here in Flickr while coming from several months using EyeEm.
                  The notifications there are handled in a more readable way.
                  To do example, if someone fav 20 of my photos, comment 4 of them and then begins to follow me here in Flickr I get 25 separate notifications, in chronological order. It's even difficult to separate the comments from the favs.
                  In EyeEm I just receive 3 notifications, one with the list on favs photo, 1 with the list of commented photos and 1 for the following.
                  This…

                      We need to be able to reply to a comment on an image and have that reply nested directly below (and maybe indented) the appropriate comment. It's very awkward to have the reply so far down the comments stream.

                      • 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.

                          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.

                          • Help--- Slideshow on Dish Hopper App

                            I have uploaded many pics to Flickr so we can use during a Graduation party for our son.

                            We have a Dish Hopper.... Which had Flickr App.
                            It lets you play a slideshow. But (unless Im doing something wrong) it only lets us do 1 page of the multiple pages at one time.

                            Is there a way to do all photos in the slideshow?

                            Thanks for your help

Better to be able to do this from the Photostream main page as before. This still works for single photos just not when there are 2 or more from the same person

                                    • How About Showing The Names Of The People Who Post Invites To Groups

                                      Whenever I get an invite to post a photo into some group, I never see the name of the person who has sent me the invite on my photostream. When I receive an invitation to post a photo into a group I want to know WHO sent me the invitation so that I can send the person a "FlickrMail" message thanking them. Could Flickr PLEASE start showing the names of people who send out invitations to groups. Thanks sincerely. From Steven Chateauneuf. snc145.

                                        • improving embedding functionality

                                          The embedding does not function properly at all. On my website, the pictures all appear in completely wrong formats. Sometime they will correct after a few minutes (and not seconds!!), but most often they just won't.

                                          It would be cool too to have a few more features (for instance automatic slide, choose if we want a border or not, etc.)
