AFAICS, they also:
1) collapsed the button that allows you to set the license of an image of
yours, which is now hidden below a "more" link in the metadata section that
was moved outside the screen (or did this happen before? certainly after
2) removed any UI path to the advanced search and to the search for
free/CC images, so that now you can find them only on the advanced search,
by knowing its URL:
3) less importantly, hid under that mysterious triple-ball "ellipsis"
button the option to find high resolution versions of the image, consistent
with a similar regression in the interface of Google Plus compared to
I found also some bugs, at least for Linux, which make (2) worse.
So, what's the future of CC on Flickr?
only 260M CC images: there were already 220M in 2011 if I read news
correctly; only 60M are free. 75 % of the times I ask a user to put an
image under cc-by-sa they choose -nc-nd because "it was the first option"
(and some of course "what, isn't Wikipedia non-commercial?!).
Is this the price to pay to Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook?
There are already lots of problems with Facebook (and various other social
networks) and free licenses. See this analysis here:
Will the unusable&pretty-fication help bring more
people to an environment
where they may meet free knowledge, or will free knowledge just be
sacrificed? It's unclear to me what's going on.
