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.
When you have to make changes to a lot of photos, it's nice not to have to do it individually photo by photo. There's a Batch Organize and I'm going to go over there right now. I'm going to go to Organize right here from our menu. That allows to make changes to a bunch of shots at once. And there's a couple different ways to do that. We can pull individual photos into the work area here. Or we can apply changes to a set. So we'll do both. Let's just take a few random photos right now.
Let's grab this, this, this, and just to be random, put that in there, something like that. Now, here in Batch Organize, I can add tags to any images that I have in this canvas area and you see that's its going to be acting on four items. So that's nice. I can add people. Again so this will be whatever you have in the canvas area. You can make changes. Time shift that's handy if you happen to forget to reset the time stamp on your camera when you travel. You can fix that right here it's good stuff.
You can change permissions. For instance, licensing right here. So these are our all rights reserved. And if I want to change it to Creative Commons, I can do that. And then there's even a couple little edit photo things here, like Rotate and Delete. This one here, titles, Tags and Descriptions, I'm not as crazy about it. It doesn't really feel like batch changed to me and you'll see why here. It's kind of old school, I think, so I'm just going to cancel that. Alright, now, you can also apply the same sort of stuff to Sets and Collections. So let's open up a set.
Open up Victoria here. Now, we have the pop up menu right here, Batch Edit. And all of the stuff I was showing you before is all here too. So if I wanted to add a new tag to the entire set or all the images in the set, I can do that right here. And this is probably a likely scenario, since often you have images of a like kind in a set. And then when you're all done, we're just going to go ahead and leave to the photo stream. We'll probably get a message saying, okay they're not saved.
That's alright. The way the save would be is this would light up if we made some changes here, but we didn't. So we're going to leave anyway despite the warnings. And then remember you can get to the organize area from over here also. So you have two ways to do it. Very handy, when you need to make changes to a lot of photos and you don't want to do it individually, Batch is definitely the way to go.
