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.
By default, I have my photos uploading into Flickr with the all rights reserved licensing. But, I may want to change that and here's is a good example, this is a landmark in Munich, Germany. It would be nice if other people could use it for their newsletters or for education and I can change the licensing on this photo easily, and that way they can use it. And the way that I do that, is I just go right down here, I'm just going to scroll. You can see right now, I have all rights reserved but if I click on show more, we have some options here and I get an edit link for the licensing.
So, I'm going to click on edit and there are all sorts of variations of the creative commons license. And if you want to choose the exact right one for you, you can Google, creative commons or you can click on this link right here and it will take you over to the site. And they actually have a tool that will walk you through, so you can get the exact right license for you. It will be one of these here on this list or you can do what I'm going to do right now, which is click on this one. Attribution, so they can use the photo, but they have to give me photo credit for it.
And non-commercial, which means they can't make money off it. So I'm going to click on Save. There's my success, and it has been changed right here. So, now folks can use my photo, as long as they give me photo credit and they're not making money off it. And it's a great way for you to allow your work to be shared throughout the photography community.
