ICYMI April Recap: Flickr News and Product Updates


Hi and welcome back to our monthly ICYMI (in case you missed it) recap highlighting what we’ve been up to at Flickr the last month. We released some mobile app updates to improve your experience while you are on the move, launched the official Mobilizing for Monuments film and curated more Flickr Through the Years galleries to highlight the diverse collection of images you can find on Flickr every day. Read on to learn more about what we’ve been up to!

Watch the Mobilizing for Monuments Road Trip premiere!

Road Trip

Last month we premiered the Mobilizing for Monuments Film which highlighted our journey with The Conservation Alliance, Rivian, and Nuestra Tierra Conservation Project in an effort to help push for further protection of our public lands.  In this film we shared the stories of tribal leaders, conservation non-profits, politicians, and business leaders advocating for the protection of 3 million acres of public lands in their own backyards. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check it out today!

Flickr through the Years galleries

Creative Commons

Every month, since Flickr’s 20th birthday, we’ve highlighted a variety of Flickr galleries themed to follow Flickr Through the Years. We’ve featured Flickr colors, historic photos on Flickr and faces on Flickr. If you haven’t seen them yet, make sure to check out the series and don’t miss our most recent addition shining a light on Creative Commons images on Flickr!

Mobile App Updates

Just a quick reminder that we’ve released some mobile app updates. Make sure to check the version you are using currently and make those updates if needed. Important bug fixes and improvements are just an update away.

What’s ahead?

Exploring Purple

Un nuevo día color púrpura

Every month we post a call out for Flickr members to share photos within a specific theme so we can highlight those in our monthly Explore takeover. Our May Explore takeover theme has been announced and it’s going to be a beauty! Join us over on Flickr Social and share your Purple pictures for a chance to have them featured in our May Explore takeover, happening on Thursday, May 30th.

We’re posting galleries featuring their work, along with the stories behind their photos all month long. We hope you find some new photographers to follow as you check out their amazing work!
