Flickr now requires yahoo account to login
18 June 2014
Reviewer: Fh.mum1 from Louisville, KY, USA

As a Flickr Pro user with multiple accounts since 2008, I already had a Yahoo! account for logging into my two Flickr photostreams back when I first began using the site. One Flickr account is used to share family photos, the other is for sports photos which I shoot and share with the players' families. It is important that sharing with both groups is free to the invited viewers.

Fast-forward to a couple of years ago: Flickr began allowing users to login using Google or Facebook accounts. I chose to switch my login to Google, as my Y! email account had been hacked multiple times and, out of frustration, I deleted it. Fast-forward yet again to now: Flickr is removing the login ability via Google and Facebook, requiring users to have Y! accounts again. I don't want to set up a new Y! account. Not only that, but you can't use the same Y! account to login to multiple Flickr accounts. I reeeaalllyy don't want to set up TWO Y! accounts!

I am now actively researching other photosharing sites to find one that better suits my (and my family's/friends'/clients') needs.

In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.

Once good, now a mess

Flickr underwent a huge re-design in Spring 2013. It was foisted on users with no advance warning, made the site much more difficult to use, and introduced many bugs. The change had something to do with the trend toward smartphone photography and the ability to upload photos while on the go. "Pro" (paid) accounts were eliminated. "Everyone gets a terabyte of free space" was advertised as if that were important. Overall, the new design had the feel of an appeal to pre-teens who were easily impressed by certain cosmetic changes.

Users complained in droves about the changes (and bugs) from the beginning, begging for re-instatement of the previous design. Some bugs were fixed, some remain, and the basic re-design was kept in spite of the huge level of dissatisfaction in the user community. Some users quit Flickr and went elsewhere: ipernity.com was talked about a lot because it had some of the look and feel of the "old Flickr."

A cute but useless photo banner was attached to the top of almost every page, wasting space. Later, a useless Yahoo toolbar was also added, eating up more screen space. They cannot be turned off. But those were minor annoyances compared to... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.

New design buggy and ugly!

Reviewer: Fjomp from Norway

Flickr was really good. With the new design, and all the bugs they have been unable to fix after more than two months, it is really ugly and cumbersome. Personally I have left for Ipernity.com

In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.

New format
21 May 2013
Reviewer: Skippy from Oregon

With the change in how flickr loads their page and the new high res pictures, It crashes my computers with data overload. They need to go back to the lower res thumbnails. If I want to see a picture in a higher res. I will click on it.
Their new format sucks.

In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.
