    Still opening without my photos showing….in a photographic site ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    Just something about a comment someone made about a photo two weeks ago.. Great… ๐Ÿ˜•

    Any way to open onto your photostream yet?

    Works OK for me (if a bit slowly given this crap so-called broadband connection I seem to have been landed with recently).

    What functions are missing?

    In my best Louis Walsh accent “I like it”

    I’m conscious I’m just a leisure photographer who uses Flickr in quite a basic capacity, but it looks great, the iOS app is neat and it integrates really nicely with iPhoto. I must be the easily pleased target demographic ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are we looking at the same page?

    Apart from the fact that chrome keeps telling me that my page is in French and offering a translation I like it.

    This is what I see Matt. I suspect that right hand info panel is something you can turn off/close/hide. I don’t see it on my pics

    You’ve enabled the exif data tab.

    meh, just me behind then. I (like everyone) was swapped from ‘old white’ in the summer(?), but this new panel to the right was an ‘invite’ to try the forthcoming changes to the new Flickr again – it seems it is a work in progress. There is no BB or HTML code sharing for example.

    Nope, I can do that in the Old New just fine. This is different…(unless I am totally mad!)

    Ah right so your talking about a beta flickr.

    In that case no we haven’t done future flickr.

    Is that the big button that says “try our new photo experience”?

    Premier Icon matt_outandabout

    That is the one.
    New New, see?

    Does the little box with the arrow coming out of the top not give you all the photo sharing options then?

    Premier Icon stilltortoise

    I don’t have that button. I feel sad…but maybe I shouldn’t.

    Yes, but not BB or HTML – only social media.

    Just pick up the url and paste it in IMG tags then. I’m sure that’s what most folk were doing anyway (despite the flickr “rules).

    Click on the ellipsis on the sharing pane

    It has right-click copy picture location disabled ๐Ÿ™

    Please. If only to satisfy my curiosity (the one next to the Pinterest icon)

    It don’t work yet, the ellipsis.

    They just seemed obsessed with copying Facebook / Instagram not realising that they won’t ever succeed by just being a 3rd rate clone site. Their original USP of being photo centric has been completely abandoned. Real shame they were bought by Yahoo, been downhill ever since.

    So, in the old new Flickr, when you had a photo in your photostream up like this…..

    ….you used to be able to hit the 3 dots in the bottom right corner and select ‘Add to set’ or ‘Add to group’ among many other options. For the life of me I can’t see how to do that now.

    It’s not under the 3 dots that are there now. I just want to be able to add to sets and groups darn it!!!

    I opted out of the ‘new, new’ Flickr yesterday. Though only after leaving my feedback. Sodding useless.

    It’s only a matter of time though before I have no choice but to opt back in ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    They do say there are functions missing, which will be added, but there’s so much that doesn’t work as well as it did. It’s pretty annoying.

    Try our new experience, where we’ve helpfully removed anything useful and replaced it with a load of social media shite for teenagers

    Yep the 2 main creators left then and the third one was laid off a bit later on but that was back in 09. It was all fine for me until the last update but the mobile apps are now better.

    Was Flickr updated by the same bloke who did the CRC website?

    They both seem to need fibre optic broadband to run at a usable pace & have been designed on how they look, rather than how they work as far as I can see.

    Actually, perhaps he worked on the latest Google Maps rubbish too….

    True, but it took them 4 years to wrote a mobile app which actually worked – pretty shocking resourcing from Yahoo.

    I’m currently trying to offer tech support to the missus to navigate yet another Yahoo mail **** up. They seem to be putting all their resources into making the mail unusable first.

    Not the other day they weren’t!
    Had to resort to Android mail app cos they messed around with Yahoo mail to make it unusable. But Android app had autoupdated overnight, and new version was only capable of crashing. So they issued a quick bugfix update, which guess what… was only capable of crashing ๐Ÿ‘ฟ , but at least they sent a 3rd update in 3 days, which does seem to function.

    Going to cancel flickr a/c. Only used it because of the photo a day etc. groups (such groups were quite useful tbh).

    Now flickr and mail are no longer there to provide functionality and productivity. Productivity now means “hey look at the new experience!”, and “look I can swipe my emails left and right now just like when viewing photos”

    So – is the new, new flickr (the beta) working OK now?
