  1. Fix repeat images appearing in albums

    When syncing a collection from lightroom I will often see that the number of photos listed in the lightroom collection and the number of photos on flickr are different, sometimes by hundreds of photos. This is usually due to duplicates of photos from the collection appearing at seemingly random places throughout the flickr album, it makes my collections which I spend a lot of time collecting and organizing seem very unprofessional.

  2. Neutral Color Picker

    When editing a photo, it would be nice to have an option to fix white balance by pointing to an area on the photo that should be pure white or neutral gray. The automatic fixes don't always get the color temperature correct. Other photo editing software has this feature.

  3. Embed system not working

    Ok, pics are on public before someone mentions it. Was in the past able to embed pics before. Wouldn't say no prob as it still required work to get the code right. But now? No matter what is tried it gets rejected and have to download the pics and re upload somewhere else. Not so simple as is claimed.

  4. why have YOU not me created a second account and now every time i want to upload photographs it goes to the unwanted account. This is totall

    sort out the friggin problem of creating a second account when i have not asked for it nor do i want it. every time i now want to upload photographs it goes to the new account you lot set up which is a right royal pain **********. you have made what used to be a simple exercise now a total nightmare.
    all i want to do now is find somewhere of removing all of MY pictures from my original flickr account and set up one with google photos or similar. YOU ARE SIMPLY A WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT

  5. Selecting and deselecting photos is horrible.

    As it stands now, it is easy to select a group of photos with one click, say all the photos taken on one date. This could involve HUNDREDS of photos!

    The problem arises when it is time to DE-select those same photos.

    Instead of clicking the "select" button again and deselect all at once, you are forced to DE-SELECT EACH ONE INDIVIDUALLY!!!!

    Are you kidding me????

    I also read of one guy that selected a group of photos to edit and then scrolled down to select another batch to delete, FLICKR deleted THEM ALL!!!

    It seems to me this would…

  6. Auto tagging is ridiculous

    I bet the guy who figured out what's in a picture and supplies tags automatically thought it was a really clever idea.
    Well, if it were smart enough, it would be, but it's not, so it isn't.
    "sky" ? "road" ? "building"? Yeah, those things appear in my pictures,
    but that's not the subject and I bet there is "sky" in almost every outdoor picture taken! Yeah, that will narrow things down!

    What is the end result of this "cleverness"?
    Wasted time and effort, as no doubt it slows down the upload process,
    and then it wastes my time getting…

  7. Stop deleting flickr accounts without notice or explanation. It is devastating after 10 years and 6000 photos!

    Give flickr members a chance to challenge such deletions. Very often you are acting arbitrarily and have no good reason to delete photostreams. I have lost access to 6000 photos.

  8. Please allow Profile Photo Viewability option

    Many times I have seen a comment on my photostream- or another persons photo or in a group- and have noticed a striking profile photo by that Flickr user and wisedh to be able to view that photo in a larger than tiny stamp sized photo.
    Often however on clicking on that persons photostream it is hard to or impossible to find that photo.
    I think it would be great if there was an inset on the profile page where -if enabled by the user but not forced on everyone- we had an option to go straight to see a…

  10. Sync Flickr on the computer with the Flickr app

    I use Flickr on both my desktop and my IPhone. I noticed there are several features unique to one but missing from the other. An example is blocking people (which is much easier on the Iphone app). To block someone on the computer you need to take several steps to identify and confirm your decision. In the app it just takes one step - clicking on Block User. Much better. Plus on the Iphone you can easily tell how many photos the user has posted - good way to separate active users with non-contributors, My recommendation is to incorporate the…

  11. Fix statistics tracking bugs

    In the past five hours, my total number of reported views has decreased by about 3000. First the previous day's count disappeared from the total (at 7PM Eastern, the start of a new day in GMT), and now several more days seem to be gone. In many other recent cases views have not been counted for hours at a time, and in still other cases there have apparently been sudden and inexplicable bursts of activity. Since as a Pro user I'm paying for statistics reporting, I expect a much higher level of service and accuracy in these numbers, and at…

  12. Camera Finder Missing Panasonic DMC-GM5

    Hi, the Panasonic DMC-GM5 is missing from the Flickr Camera Finder. The older GM1 has an entry (flickr.com/cameras/panasonic/dmc-gm1). Will you please add the GM5?

  14. Make the Group Admin's life easier!

    I recently inherited a group from another Admin. At the time there were approximately 1,600+ members. I started reviewing the members and noticed that many of them have not posted photos of their own and most of the groups they belong to are **** related. I'm trying to remove them from the group and it is a time consuming experience. Hopefully this suggestion can be easily incorporated.

    When you go to the Manage Your Members tab and click on Intelligents you get a list of members, the most recent additions first. At the bottom of the page are some page…

  15. Support for "inner cylinder" method Panorama's/360 images.

    The stock Google Camera app (on Nexus/Pixel devices and any devices using current gen Qualcomm CPU's) takes "Photosphere" panoramas using the "inner cylinder" method.

    This method is not supported by Flickr even though this is probably the main way that Android users capture Photosphere/360 images now.

    You are ignoring a large percentage of your market share, I've seen old tech illiterate people using Photosphere mode! But no one can upload them to your site - you only support the ancient "equirectangular" method which from what I can see - no current camera app on Android uses.

    I spent hours Googling…

  16. Sharing links of LARGE image size . . . .

    I used to go to the LARGE size of image, like https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeygottawa/40145328692/sizes/o/
    and I could post this link in comments showing the location of the large size. Now showing this link in my comments shows a pic of the same pic I am discussing but NOT THE LARGE SIZE IMAGE. ie: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeygottawa/40145328692/

    I want to show the link to the large size. Fix this, please.

  18. In the profile section I suggest that we should be able to choose in what order the images appear.

    In the section of images that we create ourselves in our own profiles, I suggest that we should be able to choose in what order the images appear.

    For example:
    Oldest taken
    Newest taken
    Newest posted
    Oldest posted
    Most faves first
    Least faves first
    Most views first
    east views first

  19. Most popular photos has most viewed etc. Please add most viewed per time period, most faved per time period etc.

    In about is most popular which has most viewed, commented, faved. Could also add most viewed per moth, most commented per month etc. Just multiply the number you alreadt sort on already by 31 and divide by the number of days (in floating point) since the photo was posted and sort by the result, again in floating point.
