I like the redesign a lot. It's way more "grown up" than I would have expected from Yahoo, especially given how they trashed their home page.

With all that said and done, I would like to extend my thanks to the folks at Yahoo and the Flickr team in particular for outdating my photo posting tutorial to the max...

Please continue to post your learnings in this thread so I can catch up and rebuild the sucker.

Note to Google: Mess with Google Docs/Drive and know my wrath!

Dale

For me the process is pretty much the same.

Pick a photo. Click the new share button and then BB code and size I want same as before.

Yes, I know, the process is the same but the look is different and that will bug my OCD ad infinium...or some such thing

The new flickr should be a case study on how NOT to do a website redesign.

They made one tyro mistake after another.

Putting the Help link at the bottom of the screen where you can't use it until all your photos that have been faved finish loading is the worst of the worst!

Nearly as bad is that if you comment on someone's photo, that comment and photo appear at the top of your homepage. Last night I criticized a guy for posting a photo of him flipping off the world. Next thing I knew, there he was flipping me off at the top of my page!

The new design looks like someone thought a desktop or laptop computer is the same thing as an iPod touch or Galaxy. Wrong.

I guess its all about opinions. I love it.

You're easy to please it seems. I'd prefer less of a train wreck on the website where I keep my pics.

The more I play around with it, the more I get confused. Don't get me wrong, I like the change, but it just seems half done - like instead of making a new cake, they just slapped a bit of icing and decoration on the old one.

You go into some pages like the forums and FAQ, and they are almost exactly the same as the old ones. I would have preferred them to take longer and make the new design site wide.

I'm noticing more glitches today - I've managed to encounter the "bad panda" screen a few times. Currently getting it when I try to search for a group name.

I'm thinking things aren't all that stable over at flickr ...

When you look at a single photo, it's hard to go back to the collection of photos you were originally looking at. Mobile app needs an auto-backup feature ala Photostream, Google+ app, etc.

Seems like Flickr is experiencing their frost major outage after the upgrade - been down for a short while now. Maybe further updates/tweaks, or just bugs?

UPDATE: Seems like they have it up and running again - it was down for a few hours as confirmed by a few sites.
