Bug fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
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.

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!
Where I keep my photo blog and make photo contacts
Update 2021: love it, can’t wait to get back out and photograph so I can post them here. Update 2020: still my favorite photo community. ————- Update: 2019. Still my favorite community. I wish they’d return groups to the way they used to be or something similar but I’ve never found a better learning resource with so many good photographers. Take your time and cultivate a group of friends with common interests. Give to get. Have fun. ————— I've had an account since 2008. It is still the best photo sharing website. I wish Yahoo was more active and innovative but given their corporate and financial worries I am amazed at what they have accomplished. I have a core of nature photographer friends who have remained over the years. We support and cheer each other on; it's fun. Others migrated to Google+ and Facebook for more visibility. However, Flickr respects photographer's rights unlike Facebook. Flickr involved a lot user action in their last major revisions. While there are things I don't like about the changes, overall they were a major improvement. I like Flickr. I think you will too.
