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.
But we have an image that we've captured with our camera using the Flickr app, and now I'm going to show you the filters. I love the filters, the filters are down here. We also have some image editing tools I'm going to show you in the next movie and those are up here. So wow, I mean, we're really into the fun stuff right now, aren't we? So, I just want to tap on some of these photos just to show you how high the quality is on this. So, we'll start with panda and you get a preview of how the filter will look with the little umbrella picture that it has. Let's go over to Mammoth and they really change the shot, don't they? I sometimes have a hard time deciding what I'm going to use. And it's funny, one filter may be absolutely perfect for one shot. And then you go to a different photograph and you go, oh, no, it's absolutely wrong, I want to use Iguana.
I'll go over here and let's take a look at Aardvark. Now these are high quality filters. Even when I do processing on my iPhone using the Flicker tools, the filters, and the editing tools and then I look on my MacBook Pro Retina display, I'm surprised at how good it looks. These are high-quality image editing tools that do a great job. So, if you capture a good shot, you can do some very nice stuff with it. That one's a little dark and here we are at Orca.
For like this shot, that's completely wrong. It just doesn't work for me at all. And then, Peacock. Chinchilla's kind of neat. Isn't it nice how they do, kind of the old fashioned film frame there, too? And then, Orangutan. That one's not quite right. So now, what I'm going to do is, is I'm going to go back and, I kind of like Mammoth. I thought that was kind of neat. And then, of course, you're sitting there at home going, what? You're crazy. Maybe Iguana. Oh, it's so hard, we'll stick with Iguana for right now. It's fun to put your shots in here, or to take a shot. And you can apply these filters to images that you bring in off your camera roll also.
And then, just look at the different moods you can create by applying these filters. Once you're done, then you just hit the next key right here and it goes to the new step. What I'm going to do though because we still have a little bit more work to do, I'm going to go back to original. And we're going to do a little image editing in the next movie.
