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.
You can change titles and descriptions in Flickr. It's kind of fun to do, and it's nice to have things organized, isn't it? Tidy having correct descriptions, tidy having nice titles. To do so, just open any photo, we've opened this shot right here, and you mouse over the area where the existing title is. Now, you're going to have something there, won't be blank. It could be a file number or something, but you'll have something there, and you just click on it. And then, for instance in this case we can edit it, we can just add lens in we want.
I'm going to scroll down and the description field becomes available. So, it wasn't there before. I'll go ahead and save. Let me just show you how that works. So, right now, you don't see it, but you click on this and it appears. And now I'll type a description, Sigma zoom on a Canon 60D DSL R. So, we've added a bit more information.
Now, I click Save, and that information will appear below. If I want to edit it, I can. I just click on it again and can edit. Now, down here, this is the Comments field, so, this is where other people comment on your photos. It's different than the Description, and of course you can comment on your own photo, if you wish. Just be careful that you don't accidentally write a comment when you think you're adding a Description. Description's up here, Comments are down there. Click Save to lock it in, and you're ready to go.
