Sharing photos on Flickr

From: Photoshop Elements 11 Essentials: 03 Sharing and Printing Photos

Video: Sharing photos on Flickr

You can upload photos from your Elements Organizer directly to Flickr, which is a popular photo sharing site run by Yahoo! To do that here in the Organizer, I'll select one or more photos that I want to upload to Flickr, and then I'll go over to Share menu on the right side of the Organizer, and from the Share menu, I'll choose Flickr. First I have to authorize Elements to upload photos to Flickr, so I'll click the Authorize button. That opens a Web browser on my computer to the Yahoo! sign in page. After entering my Yahoo ID and Password, I'll click Sign In, or if you don't have a Yahoo! ID, you can create one by clicking this Create New Account button, and that takes me to Flickr, where I see that the Adobe Photo Sharing Service -- basically that's Elements -- wants to link to my Flickr account, and asks if I'll authorize that.

Sharing photos on Flickr

You can upload photos from your Elements Organizer directly to Flickr, which is a popular photo sharing site run by Yahoo! To do that here in the Organizer, I'll select one or more photos that I want to upload to Flickr, and then I'll go over to Share menu on the right side of the Organizer, and from the Share menu, I'll choose Flickr. First I have to authorize Elements to upload photos to Flickr, so I'll click the Authorize button. That opens a Web browser on my computer to the Yahoo! sign in page. After entering my Yahoo ID and Password, I'll click Sign In, or if you don't have a Yahoo! ID, you can create one by clicking this Create New Account button, and that takes me to Flickr, where I see that the Adobe Photo Sharing Service -- basically that's Elements -- wants to link to my Flickr account, and asks if I'll authorize that.

I'll click OK, I'll authorize it, and that takes me to this window in my browser that says you may now close this window and return to the Elements application. I'll do that, closing the Web browser window, and here back in Elements, all that's left to do is click Complete Authorization. That finally opens the Flickr upload window in Elements. Here in the area on the left, I can see that photo that I had selected to upload. I can use the minus symbol if I want to remove a photo from this upload queue, or if I want to add a photo, I'll click the plus button, and that takes me back to this window, which gives me a view of photos in my Organizer.

I'll select to see only the media in the grid, which means only the photos that are currently showing in my Organizer, and then I'll select another photo to upload -- this photo of the raspberry and strawberry tart -- and then I'll click Add Selected Media, and Done. Now you can see both of the photos here in my Flickr uploader. Over on the right, I can choose whether I want to upload these photos to a particular existing Flickr photo set, or create a new photo set.

A photo set is the kind of Flickr grouping, and if you do upload photos to a photo set, viewers will be able to see your photos as a slideshow on Flickr. So I'm going to check Upload as a set. I could select an existing photo set if I already had one. I don't happen to, so I am going to create a new photo set. I'll call this one Desserts, and I can add a Description here: Delicious desserts. In the next section, I'll specify my privacy settings. In other words, who will be able to see these photos on Flickr? I can make them visible to anyone in the public, or only to my friends, or only to my family.

I'll leave this set to private, and visible to friends. And here I can add some subject matter tags to these photos, so they're easier for people to find on Flickr. By default, Elements adds this tag: Elements_organizer_11. I really don't need that. I'm going to select it, and delete it, and I'm going to type desserts, pastries, food, and Paris, where I happened to take these particular photos, and I'll click Upload. Elements goes about uploading these photos to Flickr, and that may take a little bit, depending on how many photos you've selected, and the speed of your Internet connection.

When the upload is complete, you'll see a window like this. Now, at this point, I could click Done to close this window, and just go about my business, but I'd rather see these photos on Flickr right now, so I'm going to click Visit Flickr. Again, that opens my Web browser to the Yahoo! sign in page. I'll click Sign In, and that takes me right to Flickr to see the photo set with the two photos that I've uploaded. Here you can see the description that I added back in Elements, and the name of the album.

And over here there are more options for viewing these photos as a slideshow, and for sharing them by e-mail, and on other social media sites from here in Flickr. So this is a great way to take your photos directly from Elements Organizer to this popular photo sharing site, Flickr, so that lots of people can enjoy your photos.
