The last great platform for specifically photographers

Flickr is the last real platform for the photography community (and for other creators). While I'm also an avid user of Instagram, the difference in purpose and focus between Instagram and Flickr is so clear. I've been a Flickr user since 2006 and a Pro member for almost as long, and I'll be a Pro member for as long as Flickr supports this community!

If you're looking for a place where the features, users, and community, are focused on photography (not influencing and marketing), Flickr is that place. No algorithms shoving targeted content down your throat, no influencers hawking essential oils and watches, no trending videos or stories to boost DAU metrics, and for Pro members, NO ADS - just the talented, weird, serious, imaginative, beginner or veteran photographers and groups that you choose to follow. If Instagram is a shopping mall, Flickr is an art gallery + photo meet-up.

Thank you, Flickr and SmugMug, for preserving this platform, for all the technical and UX improvements you've been making, and for trying keep this place pure and focused on photography. I was one of the many complainers during the final years of Yahoo, but I'm more grateful than ever to have this platform and for the new life that you've given it. Thank you!

Too limited in scope

I have a Flickr Pro subscription, and began uploading all of my photos. I now have a few hundred albums, but the iOS application only shows me the first 50 or so. I’ve seen bug reports about this online, but no resolution. I also started adding albums to Collections (using my Windows computer and the web ui) to make it easier to group albums, say from a single trip. Sadly, I could find no way to access those with the app either. It’s just simpler and less restricting to use the website than the app. That is pathetic. UPDATE Nov 2023: Ok, Flickr, I reached out to your tech support as you suggested. I had resolved the missing albums via uninstall/reinstall (not the friendliest way to fix a bug). As for the rest of my issues, here is what your specialist team said: I understand you would like to be able to see and manage collections, as well as sort albums on the mobile app. While these are not currently options through Flickr, I can definitely understand the desire to see these features. I went ahead and forwarded those suggestions on to our Product Development team for consideration. So the web version is still more powerful than the app… pathetic still.

Nov 18: responding to the new developer response – your tech-support seem took my featur requests and submitted them. until these features make it into the app, using the app to view thousands of photos and hundreds of albums is a very poor experience.

Developer Response ,

Hi there. We appreciate the feedback. We are continuing to work to make the app more reflective of desktop, but some features from the desktop version are not featured on the app at this time. If you'd like to leave a comment or suggestion that will help us improve the product, we'd love to hear it. Please feel free to do so here:


Good, but needs a LOT of updates

I love this app and it’s a great way to make friends and post photos. But there are many things that are on the Flickr website that desperately need to be added to the app. There are glitches such as people’s accounts getting deleted completely and being replaced with a ghost account with a randomly generated name and deletes all pictures, comments, faves, follows, and any possible trace of said person. It creates a huge inconvenience to these people and can cut off their communication and cost them their photos. I know from experience because people that I have come to know primarily through this app, have all been deleted at the same exact time due to these “glitches” by Flickr (in reality, Flickr is deleting them on purpose because these people are seen as unimportant). The app needs to be updated with the ability to change your cover photo, create galleries, change your “About” information, send and receive messages, tag people in comments without pushing reply, tag multiple people in comments, update emojis instead of generating a bunch of unrelated symbols, editing album descriptions and cover photos, and creating a showcase for photos. As you can see, this app is great, but needs adjustments that could easily be fixed if Flickr would recognize them.
