Flickr sharing on Android

bakerart says:

I've always shared Flickr albums of paintings on web pages for anyone to open. It still works on Windows 10 but when testing the links on a Google Pixel phone when not logged into Flickr it doesn't open the album but goes straight to a page inviting the user to join Flickr. As a pro user of Flickr I primarily use it to share artwork and this Android glitch is a nuisance. The links might open on different smart phones but not on the one I'm using. Any advice welcome - Richard

Hi Ryan and thanks for contacting me

I've only noticed this problem recently when putting links such as this one on my website www.flickr.com/photos/bakerart/albums/72157610757970122

If I try to open the link on my Pixel 4A phone when I am not logged into Flickr it doesn't open the album and goes to this screen

[https://www.flickr.com/photos/bakerart/51695227805/]

This also happens when I open a direct link on the phone and I've tried it on Chrome and Vivaldi. These links have always opened using a pc and it's a great way to share images.

My phone isn't that old with Android fully up to date. I think it might be a problem specific to this phone but I haven't consciously changed any settings. The website is here www.cambridgeartstudio.com/ but the problem doesn't seem to be with the website because the links don't work even if they are typed into the phone.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Richard

Ah, thank you Flickr Support! If you have the Flickr App on your Android phone and you try to open a link to Flickr content, it invites you to log in. If you haven't got the app, the content will open straightaway. So that's all fine - everything explained!
