The BEST photo sharing/storage/community app EVER!
I’ve been on Flickr for over 8 years and I’ve seen it’s evolution over those years. I don’t exaggerate when I say Flickr is the best app out there for all photographers. You’re given a very generous amount of free upload space (1TB) and unlimited space if you join the yearly subscription. Because of that I’ve started using it as a backup to my backup photo archive. It allows easy full resolution uploads. Besides that, I love the communities that are on Flickr. If there is a type of photography you like or type of camera or any kind of photography process, there is more than likely a community for it. If not you can easily start one. I’ve tried other photography apps but I keep coming back to Flickr. As I write this review, SmugMug just purchased Flickr. I’ve tried SmugMug too but I always felt like it’s focus was to sell you something. I hope SmugMug doesn’t make any drastic changes to this already perfect app!
Love it again!!
A big Thank You for fixing ALL the glitches that we experienced over the past few days! I now love the updates, and you are back to 5 stars in my book! I still love it, but cannot stand the bugs that came with the new version! It's nearly impossible to make or reply to comments, I can't add tags, and can only add one group or album at a time...VERY frustrating! I use this app every single day, but am having to rely on my PC more and more. Please work out these serious problems.... Just this past year I started really using Flickr to put all of my trip photos "out there"! I was really pleased with a lot of them, and hated for them just to stuck on my computer or phone. I figured other photographers and travel geeks might enjoy them, and I was right! I have over 600 followers who are always ready to provide some words of encouragement as well as share their wonderful photos with me. I am addicted...
Would give it five stars if…
This app is pretty solid and I'm really glad they went back to the old pre-Yahoo pricing for pro accounts. The app is great for going through and organizing photos you've already added to your account, although the geotagging features could be more robust. That being said, the uploading process for photos taken on my phone is insanely slow. It will sit on the "Uploadr preparing" screen for days at a time, sometimes weeks. And then once it does start uploading the photos, it will only do a certain amount and then stop for days at a time, so that months could possible pass by between taking photos and getting them uploaded. This happens whether I'm on wifi or not. And don't even get me started on uploading videos. There's no reason this should be the case when other photo apps can get a large quantity of images uploaded in mere minutes. If they fixed uploading photos from mobile devices so that the app at least performed as good as other comparable apps, I'd give it five stars.
Flickr: Still getting better with time (and still impervious as ever to hurricanes and floods)
I started using Flickr back when it was available in PC-only format. Now, it’s on my iPad Pro tablet and iPhone 8, and working better than ever. Compared to the growing host of “edit, upload and organize” cloud storage options that exist today, Flickr remains the premier domain for any and all serious shooters, pros and hobbyists alike, who need 100% reliability. I’ve been a full-time photojournalist for over 40 years: Even now, forcefully retired by health challenges, I cannot resist the allure of living through a lens. Thousands of career pictures, my life story, are secured today on Flickr, Anytime I or anyone else wants to see them. Hurricane Ike destroyed my house in Seabrook, Texas, in September 2008. The frantic rush of a forced evacuation was brutally exhausting. So much so that I grabbed the wrong box on my last trip to the truck ... the one that held all of my backup hard drives. Ike invited 4 feet of Galveston Bay storm surge into my living room. By the time it flowed back home, every photo I had taken since 1976 was destroyed. I was devastated. Until I remembered Flickr, and all the “cherry” images that over the decades I had edited and uploaded for safekeeping. Flickr is a whole lot more than cloud photo storage. And for me, the pro membership is worth every cent:. Larry in Clear Lake City, Texas
Easy could be 5 Star but...
Easy could be 5 Star but I still have some problem to do what ever change I need to do in my page. Like update my background picture. I love to do everything in my iPad but there are some works that need to be done by the LabTop. For me instruction of how to work in my Flickr page is not helpful enough if there, because I do not remember to see it anywhere around. Can you do something about it. I will give you 5star if I can work easy in my page to update and organize with my on personality. Thank You for care about it. Good Luck and Prosperity to FLICKR and every member of this Company! Love You All, Always. I have been with you from the beginning. 👍🏻😘😘😘🌹♥️♥️♥️🌹 I will give you 5 stars this time, but I haven't check if things are better now. So till next time 5 will do for now. :)
I just can't anymore.
I've been a pro member for years but I just cannot be a paying member anymore. Everything about Flickr the last few years has been a disappointment, instead of moving along with the pace of the industry you guys decided to stay behind when Flickr knew it was in trouble it went and deleted not paid users photos in a last desprete attempt to somehow extort them to pay for the premium service. Last straw was that pathetic email from the CEO after being on the job for so many years, making promise after promise he did absolutely nothing to make a change no changes to website that are worth paying for, no engagement anymore with fellow members even the most popular members are seeing nothing in terms of engagement. I decided to cancel my membership and encourage anyone I do know to do so as well. So many years of Flickr ignoring it base of users, years of neglecting the site, years that the CEO spent just sitting on his hands only to show them to write a email begging for new paid members.
Used to recommend
I used to recommend this app all the time as a great backup, but with their recent turn to a very expensive annual fee I no longer do that. Not only must you pay, but you will receive inaccurate mails telling you ‘gee, you’re almost a your limit of 1000 images, better sign up for pro now so you don’t lose out’...and in reality you will have less than half your limit. So basically they try to scare you into signing up by sending you inaccurate information. If I wasn’t already put off by the high price, I would definitely be put off by someone seemingly so desperate for enrollment they will misrepresent peoples account status and try to scare them into signing up I spent a couple of days downloading and deleting almost a decade worth of photos from my Flickr and am working on altering my work flow so the service is a simple convenience, but nothing that I will depend on for my photos. If they will misrepresent my account status they are no longer anyone I can trust with my data.
Long time user, returning to frequency
I’ve been a Flickr user for more than a decade. I was a very frequent user in the early days and have gone back and forth over the years, trying different platforms. I was concerned when Yahoo! sold Flickr as there were recent changes to revitalize and update the site, app and community. The most recent sale to SmugMug seems to be good for the platform. Updates to the algorithms an tweaks to the interface and apps are good and I find myself spending more time in the environment. The latest app I’m reviewing had been great, though I docked one star for having to click on a different tab after scrolling deep into the explore pages. There is no quick way to return to the top of the page otherwise.
Need more options sorting and deleting
FEATURE REQUEST: I’d like Flickr much more if it made my task of reviewing and deleting photos on the iPad easier. First, I can’t delete when viewing the photo full screen, now only when viewing the thumbnail. I often take multiple photos of a subject with the idea that I will only save the best version. This is SO HARD to do in Flickr—switching back and forth between thumbnail and full screen. Further aggravating is that the app jumps back to the oldies photo and the search begins again!!! And, I would like an option to “heart” or otherwise mark my favorites in the Camera and have them appear in a “Heart” folder. This would have favorites from several Albums. I’m not thrilled with the latest huge reduction in what was billed as “unlimited storage” of photos for free. I’m now a paying “Pro” member but I’m keeping my options open for saying goodbye to Flickr. I’m not sure it is worth paying for.
Horrible share settings, horrible mobile site, sorry excuse for an app
Redesign your mobile SITE (safari, chrome) to have download buttons on photos so I don’t have to download an app I’ll never use just to save my photos on Flickr to my phone. I’ve sent feedback for this for 2 years already ever since you took away the function to download a photo by holding down on it!! Not only that, if you keep your album unlisted for privacy, you never implemented a function where you can have select people view that unlisted album! That is a commonly implemented function to share albums with people exclusively yet that isn’t a thing on Flickr. Then people I take photos for can’t download the photo from the app either unless I make it public!! But these photos are personal photos that shouldn’t be public like weddings, engagements. This has given me so much stress as a photographer because none of my clients view photos on laptop. Please. Add. The DOWNLOAD. Button. On. The. Mobile. Site.
Photography on Flickr
Photography has a voice all its own. In full color or B&W. Great photography grabs our attention, soothes our senses and encourages us to continue our search for our next fun day with camera in hand. Flickr provides us the opportunity to see the World in all its beauty and share our thoughts with photographers from around the globe. I’ve been an active member for almost ten years. I learned so much here from others and their work. We’re like family in the best sense of the word. Literally from all over the globe I witness stunning work being shared. Great work doesn’t intimidate me but rather encourages me to keep working at my craft. Thanks everyone at Flickr for sharing, commenting and encouraging. Keep the shutters clicking people. JDHANSEN
Flickr is Awesome
I use Flickr to back up my favorite photos and share them with the world. But the user base is so diverse in their interests, that I LOVE to use it as a tool for inspiration. I have even been contacted by several individuals and publications for permission to use my photographs. I do photography simply for the love of it so, I have always said yes and am thrilled that anyone would even ask. The extremely diverse groups are fantastic as well. I have joined a few and have had quite a few requests to share a photo with groups, so I love the social aspect of the app. I wouldn’t change a thing and I really hope that Smugmug treats it with kid gloves and doesn’t make any major changes. It would be sad to see such an excellent app destroyed.
Friends on Flickr
I feel my ability to pursue and enjoy photography improved dramatically when I joined Flickr and began making friends with fellow photographers. If I wanted to learn from friends pictures I could ask questions or look at Flickr shot information that tells me the settings used to get the shot. I look at all aspects of an individuals shot and also the angle of the shot. I study composition and contemplate what draws me to the photograph and what sets it apart. Flickr people are wonderful and generous with ideas and comments. Flickr is a type of social media that encourages by example and is filled with techniques you can learn. It is clearly better than most classes and a road map for becoming a better photographer! Penny
Don't update just yet--uploads from Camera Roll are still not working
It used to work perfectly, but for the past few updates, I've been unable to upload photos straight from Camera Roll to Flickr. It just keeps telling me the upload failed, and no amount of retrying will work. So now, I have to open the app, click on the camera icon and get past the camera function itself to dig into my photos, further dig around in the folders to find the photo I wanted to upload, and only THEN can I finally upload it to Flickr. It's really frustrating and tedious, when in the past, you could do this with just a couple of clicks from the photo itself (Share icon, Flickr icon, go). After years of working perfectly, this is definitely a step back--I wish I hadn't updated the app. Were this a desktop computer program, I would've just rolled back to an older version.
App has become useless
The Flickr app has become useless. I have used the app for years with very little difficulties. However the past six months keeps disconnecting from my Wi-Fi. It is the only app that does that. I have to reboot my phone my iPhone and re-download the appIn order to get it to work and reconnect with my Wi-Fi. this occurs at least once a week for many months. Recently it has gotten even worse where even after reinstalling the app I am on an endless cycle of having to sign in and cannot get you to use the app because the soon as I sign in and select to start I am prompted to sign in again and this happens over and over again. For all the complaints about Yahoo! this never happened when Yahoo! and Flickr. My patience is running out with the Flickr app And this is extending to Flickr as a whole. I paid the higher Pro ratefor Flickr just to get service that is worse than what it was before.
