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.
The mapping functionality in Flickr, it's fun, I like it a lot. And, the nice thing about it is that, if you want to have a photo associated with a location, you don't need a camera that does geotagging, you can actually do it here in Flickr. Let me pick a shot here. I'll pick this flower shot right here. And I'm going to go over to our three dots I'm going to add it to my map. Now, this shot was actually taken in Santa Rosa. If I wanted to say, though, however, that I took this shot, let's say, in Rohnert Park, I would just enter that information right here.
And click Go, there we go. And it will take it right there. Okay. Now, I can zoom in, closer if I want. Just use the zoom thing here. And if you wanted to be more specific about where in Roener Park, let's say that was taken in Alicia Park, then you can put that right there. And you have some additional options right here depending on the area not all areas are going to give you this but right now neighborhood A works for me. Now, in terms of who can see the stuff on your map you have some choices from anyone in the whole world which in the case of flower taken at a park I think that's fine.
All the way down to only you or maybe only family, and of course, you know, if you have like a family function at your grandmother's house, you may not want to have the whole world see where that is, so then you can limit to only you and your family, but this case we're going to go with anyone. Then we're going to save the location. That's done. Now we'll come back here to our flower and we scroll down a bit. Look at this, we have a new thing, we have where this flower was, and if I click on this it will take me to the map. So that's fun and when you see that on other people's photos you can discover where they took their shots if they're sharing that with you. But, there's one other little goody here I just want to show you. If we come back to You and we go to Map, look at this. This is kind of neat.
So, everything that we put on a map. Will show up on the big map here, and then we can click on it, and we can see. Hey, that's the shot I took in Munich, right? Is that neat? Here's a shot. And I took this. By the way, this shot here, that was taken with an iPhone, so it automatically geotagged the shot for me, and then it's been added to my map. So you can use the map for you own stuff too.
Its not just seeing where other people took their shots. If you want an overview of your world travels everywhere that you've been, you get pins on a map and you click on it and you get to see the photos there. I think that's kind of neat. Sort of fun, and it's very easy to do.
