Flickr Tags

Some time ago (ok a few years ago) flickr changed the URL scheme for tags, and it annoys me to this day. Previously searching for tags would result is a simple URL something like this

https://www.flickr.com/photos/davegolden/tags/sunset/

but now looks more like this

https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=71604449%40N00&sort=date-taken-desc&view_all=1&tags=sunset

This made sharing tag URLs more complicated, and made it harder to edit a tag. While the old tag URL scheme still works, it is not obvious who to get to it. But once you know how, it is pretty easy.¬†What’s even better is that you can change either the username or tag text to change the filtering criteria.

You can view all your tags with

https://www.flickr.com/photos/username/tags/

or see images with a specific tag

https://www.flickr.com/photos/username/tags/tagtext/

And you can even edit a tag by adding /edit the end of the URL.
