Flickr’s Hard-to-Find Pages

Updated 2015.05.20


Flickr has an increasing number of pages that can’t be reached through normal navigation, or are difficult to find that way. This page lists a bunch of them.

NOTE: Flickr is changing quickly, so some of these URLs will no longer work. If I find a broken one, I’ll remove it (or say it’s dead). If you find such a link, email me:

URL Hacks


/surf/ Add “/surf/” to the end of any photopage URL, like this:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/8251571727/surf/
/me/ Replace the personalized part of many URLs with “/me/” to make a link that anyone can click on; they’ll be taken to the same page on their own account. For example:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/
http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/stats/
/sometag/delete/ Add “/delete/” after any tag URL to delete that tag (there will be a confirmation screen)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/tags/sometag/delete/
Two Tags: Use a comma to separate two tags, to find image with both tags:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/tags/lens,gear/
/lastpage/ Add “/lastpage/” to the URL of a multi-page discussion thread, to always reach the last page:
http://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157632226988165/lastpage/
/in/datetaken/ Add “/in/datetaken/” to photopage URL to browse contextually by date-taken:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/8251571727/in/datetaken/

(removed from site in March 2014, but apparently added back later)

/friends/ Add “/friends/” to anyone’s photostream URL to see recent images from their contacts:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/friends/
/contacts/ Add “/contacts/” to anyone’s profile URL to see their contacts list:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/contacts/

(removed from site in March 2014)

Search by camera Edit Search results URL to include camera make/model:
http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=+&w=69282447@N00&cm=canon/powershot_sx150_is
http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=+&w=69282447@N00&cm=canon/eos_digital_rebel_xt
(Get proper nomenclature for your camera from Flickr's Camera Finder.)

Some camera models don’t work, as of 2015.04.19


Also, search friends/family photos by camera:
http://www.flickr.com/search/?&cm=canon/powershot_sx150_is&w=ff
And search your Contacts' photos by camera model:
http://www.flickr.com/search/?&cm=canon/powershot_sx150_is&w=contacts

(These last two were removed from Flickr in March 2014)
/nearby/ Add "/nearby/" to the end of a photopage URL (if it's mapped) to show other photos mapped nearby:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/3377558084/nearby/

There are options on the page to sort by contacts, date, distance, etc.:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/3377558084/nearby/?show=detail&fromfilter=1&by=everyone&taken=alltime&sort=interestingness


Finding Pages In Flickr's Search Box


As of 2010, users have the ability to find pages in Flickr’s Search bar, not just photos, people, or groups. In Dec. 2012, Flickr updated the entire navigation bar so it would stay on screen as you scroll. This includes the search box. You can also type “s” from any page to move the cursor into the Search box.

Just start typing part of a word into the search box to find the following pages.

NOTE: Sometimes results will differ. For example, “u” will yield one set of results the first time you type it. If you click away from the search box and then click back into it, the still-present ”u” will show one different result than it did the first time.

EDIT: in March 2014, both the navigation bar and the Search Box were removed from the photopages. They still appear on all other pages. Later in 2014, when the photopages regained the Search bar, they no longer had the ability to search for pages using the shortcuts below.
