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.
A big part of the fun, I think, with Flickr as a social site, where you get to see what your friends and family, what they're posting. And, you know, Flickr makes that easy, especially with the new design, where you get to see what's going on right here on your Flickr homepage. But if you don't have any contacts yet, you don't really get to see what your friends are up to. So, there's a couple of ways that you can go about adding contacts to your Flicker account. One is when you have a new account like this one here, they make suggestions for you.
And you'll see that, as I look at these pictures, if I think they're really neat. Wow, I like close-up photography, so then I can go ahead and add this person as contact right here, and then they will become part of this page. Now, you can also go up here to contacts, and you can go to add contacts. And you have a number of options. You can import contacts from the different social lives that you have right here. And all you have to do is just click on any of these. And you can bring them all right in.
I generally don't do that, but that's how you do it if that's what you want to do. You can also search for people that are already on Flickr. So, if you know you have friends on Flickr, you can search for them and add them individually. Or if you have people that you would like to be on Flickr, so that you guys can share photography. You can go up here and send invites to those folks, just like that. And 1, 2, so then they will get an invite in the mail.
So, you have different ways to add folks, you can add folks you don't know but you like their photography. You can add folks who aren't apart of the Flickr universe by sending them invites or you can search for people that you know are on Flicker and add them that way. Either way, it's nice to get a few contacts, so that you can see other people's photography on your Flicker homepage when you log in.
