Introducing Auto Upload and Auto-straightening for Flickr on iOS

By Markus Spiering, Head of Product, Flickr

At Flickr, we know how important it is to capture the right moment. Our last few updates, including our brand new camera for Flickr for iPhone and iPod touch, have aimed to help you set up the perfect shot.

Today, we’re excited to announce our latest developments in achieving this goal:  Auto Upload and auto-straightening features for Flickr iPhone and iPod touch.

Auto Upload

Up until now, you’ve had to upload photos from your iPhone or iPod manually. That can be a really painful and time-consuming process. We’re introducing Auto Upload for iOS 7 users to automatically save your photos to Flickr, securely and privately, until you’re ready to to edit and share them.  With Auto Upload, you can always find your smartphone photos wherever you want — within the Flickr app and on



Our last update included customizable filters and editing tools, and we’re adding a powerful new addition: auto-straightening. Have you ever framed up  the perfect photo but got bumped as you took the shot? It can be pretty frustrating. With the tap of a button, the Flickr app will instantly straighten your picture. It’s a tool that works like magic when your photo is just a little bit off.


At Flickr, we always want to improve your experience and do our best to help you capture and share your daily lives. Please keep your feedback coming!
