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.
If you feel like you want to get a little bit more activity on your Flickr page, the best way to do that is add some contacts. Get other people involved. Usually, when you add someone as a contact, most of the time they will add you back. So, I'm going to go up to Contacts, go to Add Contacts. Now, Flickr will make suggestions for you. It'll add friends for you, and you can pick those. Also, if you want, you can pick up people from your existing contacts list from Gmail or Yahoo!, Facebook, Google, or you can send invites.
Just add their e-mail address, their name, check the box. Look, they even give you a little boiler plate here. I would probably change that boiler plate. I don't know, just a word of advice there. But anyway, you can invite people to come on over and become your friend here on Flickr. And by doing so, like I said, if you add people as a contact, they will generally add you back. And you find that of course, under Contacts > Add Contacts, right here.
