  1. Get Rid Of The Black Background That Surrounds My Photos When I Click On Them

    I do NOT like the black background around my photos that I see whenever I click onto any photo in my own photostream. The OLD Flickr used to not have this. I want to see a "PURE WHITE" background. The dark background is morbid, gloomy, and unappealing. Also I'm not always able to view my own photos in my own Flickr photostream with the newer beta format that Flickr has been using for the last two or three years. Sometimes I only see black background after clicking onto one of my own photos in my photostream. How about making it…

      • Regarding Invite/History: It would be soooooo helpful if the names were listed with the guest pass links (as they are with pending invites).

        I would like to see WHO is making use of a guest pass to view my photos. On the Invite/History page I can see a list of guest pass links that I've sent out, listed by date. But if I've sent several passes out on the same day, there is no way to know which guest responded and viewed. So now I keep a log and only send one invite per day so I can keep track. Under the "Pending Invites" tab, you list the names of people I've invited to follow me, it seems you could also list the…

        • fix the banner window

          If you won't fix the banner window repositioning (which you are obviously in no hurry to do, despite many complaints), at least let the user remove the banner so that our profiles aren't tarnished by Flickr's inability to fix a simple thing.

          • Family vs public viewing size

            It would be nice if I could set a limit on public view/download of my images, but allow Family and Friends to have access to original full size images. I still need to have "All Rights Reserved" for me.

            • I absolutely love this app but I would like the temperatures in centigrade also if possible please

              Would like very much to have the temperatures also in centigrade if possible please.
              I cannot speak for anyone else , but I find centigrade temperatures easier, perhaps it's my age .

                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.

                            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?

                                  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.

                                      • it is a pain ********** to upload mutlple pictures from multiple files taken on my digital camera. why isn't flickr smart enough to upload

                                        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.

                                        • Font accents.

                                          Album title font doesnt have accents. (like ľščťžýáú and more...) Please fix this issue.
                                          Thanks.
