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.
One of the things that I like to do is, I like to tweet from Flickr also. I think it's cool adding a photo to a tweet. It just gives it another dimension. Now, before we can do that, of course, we gotta go back to our settings to make sure everything is wired up correctly. So we go to Settings going to go over to Sharing and Extending. And going to make sure that the connection has been made. I'll click on the Edit button to review that, yes and we're going to send it to my Twitter account. That looks good.
Now, if you haven't done that yet, you'll have a Connect there instead of edit. You just authorize the two to talk to one another. Okay, so we're all set up, let's go to our photo stream. And, I don't know, let's tweet that I'm here at Lynda doing this work. So I'm going to tweet this cup right here. So I'll click on that. The Lynda coffee mug. So I go over here to share and Twitter will work as I've made that connection. You don't want to get rid of this part.
This part is important because that's the link to the photo. But we're going to add a little info here. There we go. Lovely. So that way all my Twitter friends know what I'm doing right now. Everything looks good. So let's post it. Okay, let's go over to Twitter. And some new tweets here. Okay, here we are at Twitter.
Here it is right here, here's my Tweet. Now, I can click on the View Photo. And look at that. So it's fun, right? You know, we've got a little image to go with your Tweet, so it really drives it home, and you can do that directly out of Flickr. Just make sure that you connect the two in your settings. And then, you can add a new dimension to your tweets.
