Яick Harris says:

Not a bug, but it gives me a grammatical tic. This appears in the initial flickr-mail:

"Galleries is a new feature on Flickr that enables the
curation of other members public photos. If you haven’t
stumbled across one yet, here are a few of our favourites:"


It should read: "Galleries are a new ..."

Actually, that can act as a singular noun too, like "five hundred miles is a long way to cycle". But "one" has no antecedent ;)

ColleenM says:

Nope, it's correct as it stands. feature is singular and takes a singular verb. Don't let the inverted sentence structure fool you.

The feature enables you the curation of other members photos. "Galleries" doesn't enable anything. It's the name of the feature.

Subject: feature
Predicate: Is
Predicate Nominative: Galleries

The new feature is "Galleries".

Not

The new feature are "Galleries".

Yeah, when I click "Sheer Feminity" I get the same screen.

Just a heads up though. Many of your images verge on 'moderate'. Galleries are for safe images only. You may want to alert the folks you are highlighting this way that their images are now much more public, and they may want to review the flagging guidelines. I'm seeing a lot of boobs and bums in your galleries.

i'm not sure if this is the right place but i didn't receive notification that some of my images were placed in a gallery via recent activity, like with favorites and comments. i found out by flickr mail. i think the faqs say you are notified via recent activity.

and is it correct that if you wish to remove the image you have to go to the gallery page? i don't want to but just curious.
never mind this part. just reread the faq!

otherwise this is a very cool feature! thanks-

Brenda Anderson says:

Bug alert. I was looking at a gallery (using Safari 4) when I wasn't signed into Flickr. But, the comment box was there, so I didn't notice I wasn't signed in. So I typed the comment and pressed post. It sent me to a "flickr has the hiccups" page, so I went back in the browser and hit post again. Again, it went to the "hiccups" page. Went back... and at that point noticed that I wasn't signed in.

But, the comments were posted anyway!

The few comments with the noname noface posters link to an Explore page and if I try to delete the repeats (that I am guessing are the same as what Brenda mentioned above - the Flick'r Hiccups while the user was trying to post?) but anyway those delete links go to an OOPS! page.

Bug perhaps...

www.flickr.com/photos/leesure/galleries/in/ shows 2 of my photos are being shown in galleries.

First, I know of at least 1 other shot that's in a gallery...see here:

www.flickr.com/photos/thomashawk/galleries/72157622246306...

The 3rd to last one...the boat with the sunrise in the BG...is in a gallery, but not in the lost of my shots that are in galleries.

Second, I received a flickmail notification when the 1st shot was added to a gallery, but have received no further flickrmail notices on the at least 2 others.

You won't receive a special flickrmail each time. It shows up in your Recent Activity. The special flickrmail is a one-off the first time so you can learn about galleries.

Brenda Anderson says:

Hmm, that does sound like a bug then... unless the photos were added to galleries during the "beta" stage and you weren't a beta participant. Notifying you then wouldn't have happened because it was a secret.

could that be it?

(I wasn't in the beta, and I had one photo that was added to a gallery a few weeks ago, and, of course, I never was notified then. I've had 2 photos added into a gallery today (after launch) and I was notified. But all 3 show up in the "galleries using your photos" page... that's how I found out about the first one).

zyrcster says:

If your photos were added to multiple galleries during the beta, then the messaging in the flickrmail we send out on launch says,

This is a quick note from FlickrHQ to let you know that a few of your photos have been selected by your fellow Flickr members to appear in their galleries:

www.flickr.com/photos/me/galleries/in


Although I noticed that the subject of the mail just says "Hey zyrcster, foobar has added your photo to their gallery."

At any rate, after the initial mail, if your photos get added to new galleries, they ought to show up in Recent Activity.

leesure, we'll take a look at the galleries your photos are in and see what we can learn.

Hey meabbott,

Because you cannot add your own photos to galleries, you will not see the Add to Gallery button above your own images. However, I just looked, and I can see it above your photos on their photo pages.

Other feature requests such as the safety level on the photo page should be posted to Flickr Ideas, not this thread, so that we can stay on topic in this big ol' Flickrverse. ;-)

loupiote (Old Skool) pro says:

i find annoying that the title of my photos are truncated to a very short string when viewed in a gallery.

e.g. in www.flickr.com/photos/michellebrecher/galleries/721576223...

the title in the gallery appears as:

DSC07599 - Burning Man 2009 -…

while the actual photo title is:

DSC07599 - Burning Man 2009 - Steven Raspa is the Uber Bunny, leading the Bunny March

i think 2 or 3 lines of text for the photo title would be nice, before truncating!

Issue - I attempted to follow directions to remove my photo from a gallery, but to no avail. It simply would do nothing. That was clicking the 'x' in the gallery. I then went to my recent activity, but the addition to the gallery did not appear there.

Even changing my preferences didn't remove the photo.

Sadly, I had to delete my photo to remove it from someone's gallery.

I got notice that an image of mine was used in a gallery. I turned the gallery access off and attempted to delete the image from the person's gallery and it didn't work. I see the "X", click it, and the dialog comes up, I click remove and nothing happens.

This is a bug.

I also see nothing in my recent activity about this, just the flickrmail.

I'd like to receive notice that this is fixed so I can remove the image ASAP. And no, I'm not going to delete it or make it private as it's used by me elsewhere.

This feature should be implemented by default in the off state, not the allow state.

that's already not something that flickr likes.

but i assume that if you are together with your friend (e.g. at a party or during a trip), it's often very nice to be able to post together your photos and those taken by your friend, if they agree with that. i sometimes find myself in the same situation, which is a gray area with flickr.

Woke up just now to find six of my pictures used in two galleries but I only received a Flickrmail and an email notification on just the first photo used; no flickrmail and email notification on the others and I only know that someone else had used my photo in a gallery because it says so in my Recent Activity Page.

If someone uses my photographs more than once in a gallery, how many Flickrmail / email notification should I receive? Just the once for all photos used or one flickrmail / email notification for each photograph used?

What's with the missing flickr mail / email notification from the person who created another gallery with my photograph? Could this be fixed?

Dr. Keats says:

The "Profile" tab has nothing to do with the galleries, as such - it simply leads to the user's profile.

And what's displayed there is entirely dependant upon what people have added - it shows as much or as little as they wish it to. Some people will display their entire life, others will show nothing. Click a few and see...

Yes, I think so...

Also, I was notified about the use of my picture on that gallery both with a flickrmail message and with a Recent Activity event. Now, the event has disappeared (even if I choose the correct history time). Is this the normal behaviour? I think gallery inclusion events should last forever on the Recent Activity list...

browsing quite a few galleries and I seem to see a recurring thing. Let's say a gallery has the full 18 images in it. You would expect the alignment of the 18 thumbnails at the top to be 3 rows of 6 right? But I've seen some where there are 4 rows (6 then 6 then maybe 4 and 2) where it seems to be overlapping. but that shouldn't happen since the thumbs are all uniform size?

Safety Filter Glitch.

I just did an experiment. It required 3 accounts

1) On account #2 I created a gallery form a Safe photo from account #1

2) I logged out and logged back into account #. I changed the image to restricted.

3) I logged out and logged back into account #2. Cleared the cache before. I went to the gallery and I could see the image just fine.

4) I logged out and then logged into a third account. No way should this account see a restricted image. This account had Safe Search ON. I clicked through to the gallery with no problems and the image was visible.

The Gallery is here:

Don't worry it is just a flower and an ugly bug. Anyone else see the bug?

I repeated this with another Gallery on the same account. This time adding two photos and changing just one to Restricted. Both Galleries now contain Restricted images that can be seen with Safe Search ON.

I also tried this by flopping an image from Public to Private. The flopped image disappeared from the gallery like it should.

In addition.

I tried to place several older photos in a Gallery using my 2nd account.. These photos did not have the Gallery Icon above the photo so they could be added.

Example here:

www.flickr.com/photos/rpilla001/2183759951/

_____________________________________________________

I received notices on my primary account that my secondary account had added the images to a Gallery. This is good.

However, now I cannot mute the notice when viewing Recent Activity.

Is the behaviour normal?

@ Burnt Umber, your link www.flickr.com/photos/pincrestone/galleries/7215762237866... took me to a "this is not the page you're looking for" type of page. That may be a bug too.

Burnt Umber says:

picsbymac Try the link again. It should be working now.
The main gallery Page is here. There are three photos in two galleries. You should only see one photo since two of them are Restricted.

Yes, they are ugly bugs and Safe otherwise. I made them Restricted to experiment.

snapmatic if you go to the Gallery page there should be a "delete" button to the right of the blank photo.

Just wanna add that I'm also getting the issue with not seeing anything in the "your photos are in these galleries" (or whatever its called) tab. Also have nothing in the recent activity screen.

And this may be better suited to the suggestions thread, but thats got over 200 posts and I can't be arsed to read through them all. But in response to this comment in this thread: "This feature should be implemented by default in the off state, not the allow state. "

I really hope you guys don't do this. I think the default should be set to ON. If folks don't want their images in galleries, than can opt out. But a lot of folks don't mess with their settings much, for whatever reason, but don't mind having their photos in galleries. Changing the default to OFF will be a disservice to the larger flickrverse...

snapmatic Hey, I never said it worked!!!!!

I am up to Glitch #4

This one is minor. The Greasemonkey Script "Flickr Buddy Icon Reply" does not work with comments in Galleries.

Sounds like a case for Flickr Hacks :)

Just found an odd gallery layout issue in internet explorer... I'm on version 8.0.6001.18702 (it says here). See the following (marvellous!) gallery of heather's:

[https://www.flickr.com/photos/xabl/3923179061/]

Shouldn't the bottom two photo thumbnails be on the row above?

It's all hunky dory in firefox (3.5.3), for what it's worth....

some of my public photos don't allow other users to add them to galleries. There is no reason they should be restricted since they are open to the public. Can you let me know if this is a bug in my account or are other people experiencing this? Thank you

Burnt Umber says:

minka6 I see you have 991 images on public view. I see them with SS on and SS off.

Which images are they having trouble with? Post a URL and we can see if we can duplicate the issue.

EDIT:

I just looked closer at your account. The icon over the image which allows people to add your image to Galleries does not appear. Check your settings and make sure you did not opt out of Galleries.

www.flickr.com/account/prefs/galleries/?from=privacy

I have a similar issue with older photos not having the Icon as well.

Thanks for the quick reply, here is one of the photos, but it's happening on many others



what should the SS be set on?

Burnt Umber says:

minka6 All 991 of your Public Images are Safe, they should be allowed into a Galleries

See my comment Edit above

Also, check here:

www.flickr.com/account/

What does it say next to "Your safety level "?

Are your images allowed in Public Search? Galleries excludes images NIPSA.

minka6 says:

no, some of my photos are already in a few galleries, so that's not the problem. Also, I did check, and I have definitely not opted out.

Burnt Umber says:

minka6 Nope, I do not see the icon over the photo.

I have the issue with some of my older photo not showing the icon. It could just be a matter of the new programming code working it's way through the system.

If I recall when they introduced the new search tool it took a while for everyone to be able to use it properly.

Click the 'flag this photo". Is the "hide from search" choice ticked?

Burn Umber,

thank you very much for your help with testing it for me. It's confusing.

I'm another that has the "photo in a gallery but not showing up in recent activity " problem.

this photo is in this gallery but the photo page doesn't state this, nor does it show up in 'galleries with your photos' page, nor was there a note in recent activity.

Brenda no, I unchecked the "hide" from search button. why would I want to click on "flag this photo"?
Posted 56 months ago. ( permalink )

Brenda Anderson says:

Hide from search is a photo-level setting. You can change it in your account page, but that only applies to new uploads.

That's why I asked if it was set for that photo, and the only way to know is to click the 'flag this photo' link and see if it is. (clicking the link doesn't change anything, it just opens up the box to check the settings).

minka6 says:

ahhh perfect, I just figured it out...I assumed that if I changed the setting to all of them, it would apply. I just unchecked it for this photo so it should finally work. Thank you Brenda!

Brenda Anderson says:

Yes, the Add to Gallery button is now showing on your photo.

I probably should clarify that if you hide your photostream via the account setting, that applies to all your photos.

But you can also hide individual (or batches) of photos using the Organizr, so I'm not sure what happens when you've initially hidden your photos and then decide to turn that feature off. I suspect that any that were hidden might stay hidden.
