[Official Topic] Justified Layout -- We'd looove to hear your feedback!

Flickr Staff

Xerxes2K says:

Hello everyone!

We are excited to gradually roll out the new Justified layout on the Photos from your Contacts page today. If you have any questions about it or want to share your feedback with us, this thread is for you.

You can find out more on FlickrBlog.

Update 03/22/2012:
We just rolled out the new justified view on Your Favorites page. You can read more about it on FlickrBlog, and of course, we are still looking forward to hear your feedback.


=== FAQs ===

I think I found a bug with the new layout, what should I do?
We're glad you asked. Just jump over to the Justified Bugs thread and let us know. We'll be with you right away.

I don't see the new justified layout yet, can you add me to it?
We’re rolling out Justified view gradually over the next few days, so if you don’t see it right away, please stay tuned – it’ll appear for you within the next days.

I miss the old layout, is there any way to have it back?
The new design optimizes for displaying more and larger images, but if you prefer the old view, you can simply choose another View in the top right of the page.

The new justified view just awesome, but why can't I see it on [page name]?
While Justified View is currently only available on the Photos from your Contacts page, we are planning to enable it on many other pages as well soon. We're looking forward to hear where else you would like to see it.

[Edit: fixed the link to the bugs thread, added another FAQ]

Nice look, but I'd quite like to have an option to turn off the 'five per person' thing and just have an option for showing the most recent pageful of stuff in date order, and if that happens to be a massive upload dump by one person, then so be it.

I was hoping it was going to be released for our own timeline things, and *not* pictures from contacts. I don't really check that out often, if at all. I <3 the look, but honestly, something for actual photostreams would be nice.

pkingDesign says:

The Ewan asked about showing more than 5 photos per contact.

We agree. We want to add something like that, but right now we're focusing on beautifying and making interactions with photos (faving, commenting, viewing in the light box) a lot easier, and rolling something like the Justified View out on more pages across the site. We're definitely thinking about ways to show something other than 1 or 5 photos per person, though, don't worry.

Chungking Express says:

I'm one of those silly twits who complains incessantly about everything, especially changes to beloved websites, but my honest reaction to the new Justified View is "nice job". Seriously.

(Ok, maybe people who do a lot of vertical photos might be a little peeved, but that's the only quibble I can think of.)

Also, I like The Ewan's idea of having an option for most recent uploads, period, whether they all come from one person or not. That would be cool, I would tend to use that.

Final comment: I find myself already looking forward to a similar beautification of my Flickr homepage--right now when I go there and see the 14 square thumbnails from my contacts, I find myself wishing for something more. Which I can't believe. Did I mention that I normally hate change?

Nice layout, but the problem is going it is too static. My contacts aren't as busy as I'd like them to be, so why visit a page with stuff i've seen before, or is years old?

What you need is something fresh to land on.

May I ask why this doesn't appear for my Favorites?

Having tested this for several days, I really like it. It looks good, and the ability to interact with images on the page seems smooth and bugless to me.

(I'm on record as not liking every new change Flickr rolls out, before people start calling me a "Flickr cheerleader". But this one, I like.)

My only non-positive feedback is that I don't see the zoom-on-hover as some early screenshots indicated would be part of it... That I think would be the icing on the cake for this layout...

cabbiinc says:

It could be better. I usually surf the web while doing other things on the computer, so I have the window on one half of the screen and another program on the other half. I've grown to love Flickr because it fits on a half sized window nicely. Now it does not and I'll need to resize my screen (won't happen), go dual screen (maybe some day soon, I have the hardware to do so), or just leave it as is and ignore the part of the screen that's off the window (the most likely scenario). Other websites do the same thing.

It would be nice if it would sense the size of my window and adjust accordingly.

pkingDesign says:

Thanks for the feedback so far, folks, please keep it coming. It doesn't have to be all positive, either :-D

To summarize some stuff staff have said earlier:
• This is the first of a bunch of updates coming over the next several months. You'll see stuff similar to the Justified View making its way to other pages, for instance.
• We're still testing a version of Justified that will zoom the photo a bit when you hold your mouse over it. Sounds like this would be awesome for some of you, but we're still making up our minds (based somewhat on anonymous usage data). In short: we'll see about zoom.
• You don't have to use Justified if you don't like it - the other view options from small squares up through large images are all still available in the View menu at the top of the page.
• Lastly, Justified is gradually rolling out over at least the next several days. Sorry that some folks have to wait, but that's the way it is. We'll be here then to hear your feedback when everyone is able to see it.

Thanks again!

It's absolutely gorgeous, especially on a large widescreen display: The new Flickr layout looks absolutely gorgeous on a big widescreen display. Welcome back in the game, Flickr! ;)
-- and it also scales down very nicely into iPad et al. Very much like the lightbox in this context, makes browsing through the photos effortless.

And I really appreciate you starting the renewal with the "Photos from your contacts" view, it's one of the most used features of the whole service at least for me - and it was a real mess before. As even all the 3rd party solutions were pretty crappy for this, I was already planning to start creating an app from a similar image grid idea but glad to see you made it so I can focus my efforts on something else ;)

Great to have you back in the game, a very promising start for the renewals!

I love the way this looks, but after reading through the comments I'm in agreement with The Ewan (see second comment in the thread) -- it would be so much MORE awesome if on my contacts page I could see all photos in chronological order of being posted, regardless of who posted them (i.e. if one of my contacts posted twenty photos and then someone else posted one and then another posted five ... so be it. I would like to see all of those on the "From Your Contacts" page).

Is this one of the possible updates coming down the pipeline?

Just now was first time I have actually looked at the page since it has changed to Justified. It is an interesting change. Perhaps I am not as Wow'd about it as some above because at first I thought I was looking at Google+'s 'photos from circles' page and figured I was in the wrong tab on my browser. It really had me confused for a second. Google has had that layout since G+ launched last summer. It's a nice change, but not original. Looking forward to what's next.

the justified format gives much more visibility to the images that have a horizontal (landscape) orientation, compared to those that have a vertical (portrait) orientation.

i don't like that.

i think that vertical (portrait) photos could be grouped in a raw with a larger vertical size, so that they get in average the same surface as the horizontal (landscape) photos..

Yvon from Ottawa says:



so why visit a page with stuff i've seen before, or is years old?

I agree with Marlon on this; if we’re going to pick photos to comment on directly from the “Photos from your contact page” (which is the intuitive thing to do) I would like to comment on their stuff that is current, say no more than a week or two old. (Because, chances are I’ve already commented on their older stuff, and I don’t remember!). So, why not give the user the option to choose a time frame for the stuff to be shown on that page, say 1 day, 2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, etc. Would make the whole concept more useful, I think.

But this is a nice start; keep it up!

I agree with this. It does shortchange the vertically oriented photos.

I think the layout makes for a really nice overall look, but I'm very glad that they left the option to view in the other sizes. After looking at the justified view for a bit, I did feel more comfortable switching back to to the medium view, it just give the images room to breathe and it's a more comfortable way of viewing for me.

I'm confused. The Contacts page does show the most recent images from your contacts. That's the way it's always worked. If it's showing items that are weeks or years old, that's because your contacts haven't uploaded anything recently.

(If you're seeing something else, it's not by design and may be a bug.)

So, why not give the user the option to choose a time frame for the stuff to be shown on that page, say 1 day, 2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, etc. Would make the whole concept more useful, I think.

Because it's already showing the most recent stuff. That's the whole point of the page -- to be kept abreast of the newest uploads from your contacts.

I'm confused. The Contacts page does show the most recent images from your contacts.

Thanks for the reply, Wil.

Yes, I can see that the images are in chronological order. But when I scroll down the page and see a picture that I would like to comment on, I have no way of telling whether that picture was posted three days ago or three months ago. It would be useful to be able to display only images that have been posted after a certain date to avoid commenting on images that I might have commented on before.

If it's showing items that are weeks or years old, that's because your contacts haven't uploaded anything recently.

Exactly; but I would like to be able to screen out the old stuff and focus on the recent stuff.

I know that pictures displayed chronologically no matter how old they are is the way things have always worked. What I’m proposing here is something new (i.e. a suggestion for improvement).

Yvon from Ottawa

I think I see what you're saying. My apologies for any misunderstanding earlier. I think my misunderstanding arose because you said "I agree with Marlon", and Marlon was simply saying his contacts hadn't uploaded anything in a while.

As for your idea -- limiting the Contacts page to only images within a certain time frame -- similar to the limit you can impose on the Recent Activity page -- I think others might be in favor of it as well. It's something you could propose in the Flickr Ideas group.

Proggie says:

I think it would be helpful to change the color of the comment icon to indicate that you've already commented on the photo similarly to how a star turns pink when you fave a photo. That way you'll know quickly if you commented on an image without having to open the photo page and scanning through all the comments.

I like it - it wasn't exactly a "life changing" thing - I use flickr everyday and yeah am looking forward to the "further changes" as discussed above and elsewhere. I have noticed a small bug. The "bug" is some images seem to be cropped on the right of the image when they are on the right of the page and I have also noticed that grey seems to show around or on the right of the images.

This is fantastic, my only concern that you have to click through to comment.

I'd like to see a larger version by hovering, and have the option to leave a comment while scrolling through the recent photos.

This in general would make it easier to comment, thus more comments, thus more happiness all around!

Also, I'd like to see this view on groups, not to mention my 'stream!

loupiote (Old Skool) pro says:

i don't think that a "justified" layout necessarily has to "punish" portrait-oriented (i.e. vertical) images. there are ways to give vertically framed photo the same exposure (i.e. the same area on the screen) as it gives to horizontally framed images.

apart from this negative point (which impacts a large number of photos), the flickr implementation of that "justified" layout is ok.

Oh, I like this! I look forward to seeing it on Set view and Favorites especially.

I'm glad the option for regular thumbnails is still there, and hope those options will remain on all pages that get the justified view.

I have the version without zoom-on-hover, and I'm happy with that; based on my use of other sites, I think zooming would be annoying.

It would be a little better, I think, if the images were a little taller to show off portrait-oriented photos better, even at the cost of having fewer images per row and fewer rows on screen.

Great work!

Carrie McGann says:

I'm happy to hear that there are more updates that will be rolled out in the future, excited about seeing what's new with Flickr.

So far, I like the new Justified layout. I wish there that the blue 'Previous/Next' buttons were at the top of the page in addition to them being at the bottom if there is not going to be unlimited scrolling.

I agree with on clicking through to comment. It would be nice to be able to do that right from the thumbnail. Clicking through and then back makes it easy to get lost on the new page.

Groups are one thing that Flickr does much better than FB or G+, it would be so great to see a Justified option for group pool pages.

Looking forward to seeing what the new changes will be!

re Justified
I like that you can scroll down through 365 photos. Wish it was a continuous scroll that self loaded for as long as one scrolled. Would like it better on black.
Nice that we are able to comment directly. Would love it if the comment box was directly under the photo, eliminating the need to scroll down to the bottom of the page if there are lots of comments. That would be a time saver. I have used CoolIris (which gives a unique slideshow on black) and CoolPreview, my fav app, for years which allows one to simply hover over a photo and, without leaving the main page you get a popup window where you can fav comment email and many other features etc. Works on many other websites too. Very convenient!

I check my contacts photos regularly. Personally I like medium or larger photos.

I like the new layout and think it'll be excellent when rolled out to more pages across the site. However, one thing I would say is that the page headers and footers look a little odd on the justified view as they're still set-up for the old layout.

I know you've said it's being looked at, but just to add one more voice - I'm also keen on extending it beyond just the latest 5 photos from contacts.

I like it a lot!
Easy to see all the photos to hone in on those i like and easier to see what's new.

Slow to load on IE at work this morning ... but then I'm not ususally using it at work :) .... honest!

Hi, thanks for the update on the Contacts page, which I actually do not use too much.

Would be good if:
1. also the "Home" page will be adjusted accordingly and I can also set that "Justified" option for the notifications that I receive on the "Home" page. Usually I dont check the contacts page but use the "Home" page as a dashboard, hence at the moment I don't benefit in my regular use of the page from the change.
2. As Thomas Hawk had put in his comments I also would like to be able to make more categories & filters for such photos, e.g. include groAs a constant travel I have met a lot of interesting people and some of them have Flickr accounts, along with family and just random people. To get better views on the Contact page it would be good to have filters and maybe options to have several justified blocks of photos underneath each other, e.g. "block A - family", block B - friends group 1, block C - Recent photos from three chosen groups
3. What I really appreciate is that staff seems to be more active in the Help Forum lately and write more than just "sorry, we are looking into that". I remember the conversations we had on this forum before the test pages were introduced and we have to find the error between flickr servers and individual user PCs. That was in some way really fun!

Cheers

Any news on how long this will take to roll out to all users? I still don't see the change, and unlike what I've seen other people say, I *do* use this page quite frequently. I'd love to interact with the new layout.

I was told a few days ago that my Flickr membership ends on March 16. And went ahead and renewed it for two years. The moment I pressed enter I got a page to sign up for Google. I closed that page.

Please let me know if you've verifed my renewal for 2 years.

Thanks
