Have you noticed that on Flickr, it’s much easier to add photos to a set than to remove them? You can select a batch of photos (based on a tag, for example) and add them all to a set.
This means it’s really easy to add too many photos to a set. Photos you hadn’t intended to add. Photos you intended to add, but finally looked redundant in the set. Photos you want to remove.
Well, folks, welcome to the world of one-by-one. You can’t select all photos with a given tag (“removefromsetname”) and remove them from a specific set. You have to either click the “Add to Set” button and remove the photo from the set, or use the dreaded organizr and hope you identify the photos you want to remove correctly when viewing them at thumbnail size.
C’mon, Flickr can do better than this! Removing a photo from a group is easy as pie: there is a little cross next to the group name. Click it, and the job is done. Removing tags is easy too. Why couldn’t we have the same thing for sets? On the right, next to the set names my photo belongs to, I’d love to see a little cross that allows me to quickly and easily remove it from my set.
Thanks for listening!
