Venture into an entire world of captivating imagery and learn how to organize and share your best shots with others online. In this course, professional photographer Derrick Story guides you through the popular photo-sharing site Flickr, first introducing the Flickr mobile app, then demonstrating how to set up an account and upload images from your phone or common image editing applications such as iPhoto and Lightroom. Next, find out how to touch up and enhance your photos with the online editor, and make photos searchable with sets and collections and by assigning photos to maps. The course also helps you navigate the Flickr privacy settings and shows how to participate in the Flickr community through comments, contacts, groups, and more.
I'm going to talk a little bit about commenting on photos. Not our own photos, but photos by other people. Let them know what we think. And this is a big part of social networking and Flickr and all that good stuff. So, let's go to our Flickr home page, because if we do that, we can see what our contacts have been up to and here we go, so we have a nice big photo here from the digital story. So, if I want, right here on our homepage with our contacts showing, I can comment on this photo without even going over to the digital story site. Just go down here to my little comment thing and say okay that looks good. So I'll go ahead and post that comment right there. And you see now we have a one, so this is the first comment for this photo. The photo just went up shortly and we're first on board. Now, if I wanted to, I could also just go over to the site, and here we are in what I call the big picture view.
And I could click on the comment here although, clicking on the Comment icon of course just takes us to right here. But we'll do it anyway. I'll go ahead and post that. So, that is the old-fashioned way of doing things. So we'll go back to our home page right now. But it's nice to comment on people's stuff, and I think all of us appreciate feedback, and even if the person has a question about, well why did you choose to shoot it from that angle, or what is it about this lighting that attracts you.
Most of the time the photographer will respond to you. So if you want to have a conversation about an image that you find interesting, or you're just trying to figure out what the photographer was thinking, comments are a great way to do that.
