Flickr Photo page Beta

We have recently changed our product feedback forums to give more visibility to new feedback from our users. As part of this, we will aggregate issues by popularity rather than showing vote counts. We value your ideas and will continue to monitor the forums, actively, so please continue to share your product feedback with us.

Flickr is about the amazing photos you capture and the communities that you built around these photos. The goal of our photo page redesign is to provide you with a fast photo browsing experience and an easy interface to build & maintain relationships.

This is a beta version of the redesign and is missing some features that you need. We are working hard on getting the following features to you in upcoming releases: Video Support, Add photos to set, Add photos to group, Add photos to gallery, Get Embed Code, Download photos from all sizes, View Exif info, Add tags, Add GEO tags, Add people, Rotate photo, Replace photo, Edit in Aviary, and keyboard shortcuts.

We will release new functionality frequently as soon as they are ready. We want you to get your hands on the beta version early and provide us with feedback. In case you need some of the missing functionality, you can easily opt-out and go back to the old experience.

Thank you for using our beta product and providing us with feedback.

How do you like the new photo page?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. For the love of God, bring back the OLD flickr from a year ago.

    Please return to the original, usable flickr that made perfect sense.

    The website is ultra slow on my massive high res monitor, where small images manage to take up the entire screen, and basic share, comment functions are buried on the side on in pop out buttons.

      • This looks just like the last wet hot mess you tried to foist upon us. We rejected it, remember? Are there any adults working there?

        • Yahoo, you have made history here - as the worst UI "upgrade" ever!

          This is going to be remembered as the biggest UI blunder ever. The saving grace is this request for user feedback, because the whole world can see that the vast majority of users are SAD and DEPRESSED over what has happened. Why hurt us? We want Flickr to be great. We LOVED Flickr. Please bring it back to us. Please listen. We had a community here and we lost it. All you have to do is be an adult and say you're sorry and ask for our help to make it the best in the world. We WANT that!

          • White background option, please.

            Whatever. All I care about now is that we have the option to choose a white or back background--a decision a photographer should get to make. Some photos are served better with white (some with black) but you can't force black on everything. Ick.

            • If the goal is to insure that no photographers use this site, than the new format is really good. Your tone-deafness is breathtaking.

              • Like the original flickr please!...You totally ruined the whole flickr experience last time you decided to give it a makeover...

                Go back to how flickr used to be before you totally ruined it please. And don't ruin it any more...fed up with paying for this service that you trash at will.We are paying customers.If I hadn't invested so much time and effort here, I would close my account.

                • Sidebar should move below landscape photos

                  Photos in landscape orientation look too small in a normal-width browser with the sidebar taking up space. The longest side of a photo should be able to fill the whole browser window, i.e., landscape photos should be full width and the sidebar would go below the photo, whereas portrait photos look nice with the current sidebar placement.

                  One way to place the sidebar under the photos would be to expand the comments to a wider space under the photo, and the rest of the screen width under the photo would be taken by the other info in the sidebar.

                  • Feedback should be respected and acknowledged not ignored.

                    Yahoo, you say you want feedback, but you aren't interested. I have just seen 4 Feedback threads closed with the same answer:-

                    "We’ve seen a significant increase of page views and site usage since the changes have been implemented and we hope to continue to build on these improvements."

                    This had nothing to do with any of the Feedback topics you answered with this dismissive reply.

                    We want Flickr back to how it was. Nothing is going to change that. You are killing what we love.

                    We don't care about extra page views when all they are about is enabling…

                      • If it ain't broke don't fix it.

                        Change is useful when its of benefit to the users; it isn't, so abandon it or lose members.

                        • Offer photographers the best website on the Web by giving them more choice. Allow members the choice of using both new and old page formats.

                          Why force members to use just one page format? Flickr could become the best website by giving members more choices. The older format has some advantages that the new one does not have, and the new one also has some advantages (mainly for mobile devices, it seems to me).

                                The comment box is still WAY WAY WAY too small. PLEASE it needs to be larger. I can't think to type in such a small box. At the very minimum, it needs to be about 10 times the size it has been changed to. About the size it was in the old Flickr. The current comment box is not in any way an improvement and it is a huge hindrance to conversations about photos.

                                • The layout looks good but I will not use it as long as the embed code is only available for public photos. I want control over my photos.

                                  I pay Flickr to host my photos and do not want to make them public in order to grab the bbc code/html link. Why would Flickr force this, except to compel users to promote the hosting site. Doesn't paying for the service entitle a consumer to some control over his own content?

                                  • Too much clutter!

                                    Way too much clutter next to the photographs. Please simplify. Please rein in your "social" concept designers. Flickr is about photographs. Please pedagogically explain why I am even looking at anything else than a picture and possibly a title and/or short description.

                                    It really is appalling that so much tech people are total idiots when it comes to presentation of images. Perhaps you guys should visit some white space galleries to understand the meaning of visual context.

                                      • Don't like the layout

                                        Too many icons/gylphs all over the place. Tidy up the layout so photo, info, and buttons are displayed in a neat, orderly, and logical manner. Don't like the circle avatar image.

                                        For a laptop experience, try something like this:

                                        [AVATAR] Photographer's name
                                        --------------------------
                                        [PHOTO] Photo title
                                        [LANDSCAPE or] Photo description/caption
                                        [SQUARE or] GPS location map
                                        [PORTRAIT] Exif data (pick 'n choose)

                                        [BUTTON GROUP 1]
                                        [BUTTON GROUP 2]
                                        [BUTTON GROUP 3]
                                        [BUTTON GROUP 4]
                                        [BUTTON GROUP 5]

                                        • People do not know they are missing out on Moderate content.

                                          I typically will post 50 shots from a single shoot. IF that shoot is even mildly ****** I have to mark the pictures as Moderate or else you will squash my entire stream. SO.. the problem is that non members, or those who have not set their Safety level will not only not see the pictures, they won't even know they exist. The may think the set has only 3 pictures. (as 47 are hidden)
                                          I would prefer that they see a message.. or even a pixelated icon that suggests that if they were to log in and set their…
