Have we done the new, New Flickr yet?
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 🙂Posted 4 years ago
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.Posted 4 years ago

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.Posted 4 years ago

So many functions missing.
White on black.
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!!!Posted 4 years agobutcherMember
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 😥
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.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
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….Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriberfootflaps wrote:

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.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber

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 👿 , 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”Posted 4 years ago
