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're out exploring the Flickr universe and you see shots that you like and you want to collect them. Ccurate them for yourself, that's called a Gallery, that's what Flickr calls it. And it's actually quite easy, you can do types of photos that you like or inspirational shots. Right now we're looking at humming birds and I want to have a gallery of hummingbird shots. So for instance, as I look at this shot, I go, oh, I'd love to have this in my hummingbird gallery. So I go down to the Flicker three dots here, and I go Add to gallery.
Now, you notice that I have a hummingbird gallery started already, and we saw the check mark, so it should be added. If I wanted to create a new galley, or if I hadn't created a gallery yet at all, I'd click on this link here, and I can do that. And then that will be added to the gallery list right here. So let's see if this worked. I'm going to go to you, go down to galleries, and here we have our first gallery right here.
There's our hummingbird shot. Now for my personal site, the digital story. I use galleries extensively. Let me show you, here's the gallery page for the digital story. For the member photo of the day. I'll click on that, and you can see how a full gallery looks. You get to have up to 18 photos in a gallery, and they're displayed as thumbnails, and then you get the larger shots. All in a sequence there, go down like that.
And if you want to go to a particular shot, you just click on the thumbnail and it'll take you right there. Really flick, so those are galleries and those are your own personal archives. You can become your own museum curator right here on Flickr with the shots you think highly of.
