  1. Automatically import the photo title

    Return to auto importing title of photo as you upload. It worked previously, now there is just a long string of random numbers and characters which have to be deleted before title can be added. That IS NOT an improvement, it is extremely annoying to have to retype the title. Please fix!

  2. Option To Go Back To Previous Style

    You keep making changes that get worse and once we get used to the new change you make another. The new recent activity is horrible and not user friendly. It was nice to have the notifications and newly uploaded pics in one spot now i have to go into another area to look at notifications. In the old design it was easy to like we didn't even have to click on the image to like it and there were thumbnail views of multiple uploaded pics we could choose to look at IF we wanted to, this is just a bunch…

    Flickr Uploadr 3.2.1 not authorised anymore ?

    I was using it until July 2017 to export from Lightroom to Flickr. it work like a charm and I loved it ( Mac OSX Sierra, LR6)
    Since last month it seems that Flickr does not authorise it any more. the uploader was logged OFF and i cannot log in anymore : it says "Flickr needs your permission ..." when i click OK it does not re-route to the flickr autorisation page anymore but to the main flickr page instead !?

    Please help ! thank you for your support

  8. Bug with searching images

    When I make image search by specific lens and I open the images in full-screen, I have only 50 images to see and then they over. This is every time and it's a lot of boring. This is not persisting when you open a group and then look images in fullscreen. Please, fix it!

  9. We need options for page layout.

    Please bring back to feature to choose our page layout. I want to be able to have the albums of the first page of my stream.

    For some of us, the albums and collections are a huge part of the creativity of our photography. The way it is set up, people rarely click on the albums anymore. They just scroll through the photostream, which is not as interesting if you ask me.

  10. Uploading bulk continuous flapping

    Really Bad when uploading pictures in a bulk. Trying to upload 7260 pictures (aprox 200KB each) and continuously flapping with erros like response timeout (internet still working perfect). If there is some way to debug this i could send you the error.
    Using the app from android it works perfectly BUT it doesnt let me choose wich folder to upload, it automatically decide what folder to upload...
    Actually it is awesome that yahoo-flickr provides 1TB storage, but with this bad service i can not even reach 3% of the quota. Only uploading one by one or a maximun of some…

  11. Edit Issues

    The New Edit feature doesnt work. If i try to crop a photo, there is no way to save the changes (or at least, its not apparent to me). When i tried to zoom, there was a save button ,but it didnt actually save my changes.

  13. Please can you allow video clips to have the correct date created/modified, so we don't have to correct each one manually.

    When videos are uploaded, the date created/modified is automatically changed to the date uploaded.
    I know it can be corrected manually, but when uploading several short clips it takes ages to do this.
    I know several people have already suggested it, so please consider doing it. Thanks

  14. Download all (my) pictures when having download limit? (Download Sync or Torrent)

    If i would want to download all my pictures from Flick I would always get over my download limit of 500 GB (or 150 GB).
    Then I would have a speed cap, so that would it made impossible to download my pictures as a zip.

    Example:
    I have 1500 GB pictures, that would take me 3 months to download, that would mean 3 months (or 10 when having download limit of 150 GB/month) without closing my pc (and internet connection), otherwise my zips would be corrupt.

    So a FREE (download) sync would possible be an option, or an option to…

  16. Camera Finder: Add Missing Pentax and Nexus Cameras

    The Pentax K-S1 and K-S2 don't appear in the camera finder like they ought to:

    https://www.flickr.com/cameras/ricoh/

    These cameras represent Pentax's budget cameras for a few years ago.

    Additionally, there is no way to find Nexus 5x or 6p photos. These smartphones are common, have good cameras, a dedicated following, and should be added. Either put them under "Google" or their respective brands (LG and Huawei):

    Google: https://www.flickr.com/cameras/google/
    LG: https://www.flickr.com/cameras/lg/
    Huawei: (doesn't exist)

  17. Is it possible to change how one edits photos in online albums so that one can select multiple photos to move within an album

    Is it possible to change how one edits photos in online albums so that one can select multiple photos to move within an album and arrange some selected photos in in differing orders, eg select 10 photos in the album, move where they are in the album and then sort the order of only those selected photos (oldest t newest)

    please make it an option to always select that one can select display page by page instead of rolling pages that you can not have control over. The fast rolling pages do not allow you to get back to your place when you bookmark or during usage. Tumblr has this same problem

  20. Compression reduces quality and it kills our photography (We are leaving!)

    We use to keep flickr as the travel photo blog kinda thing, but now its moving away from that as the quality of uploaded photos are drastically reducing due to the compression making the our photography look really bad. flickr isn't mainstream social photography, but with what you're doing it might be, making so many of take off.
