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 add notes to your images that tell people, they are like callouts, right, so, they can see what's going on in the shot. You can identify elements in a shot. So, we have these three lenses here. So, if I wanted people to know what these three lenses were, I can create notes for them. So, I'm going to go down here to my Flickr dots and do Add Note. I'm going to position this over this particular item, just like this. We'll save that, and then we'll just add another note, one for each lens and then one more. We gave to do the third lens.
So, add a note for that, just drag that over here, click the (UNKNOWN) there we go. Now, when either you or viewers are looking at the photo they'll see these squares, and they can mouse over them and see what's going on there. Neat huh, and I see people they take their entire camera bag. They show a picture of it with all of their gear inside, and they identify each piece of gear with one of these notes. I'm not encouraging you to do that, I'm just saying that you can get as meticulous as you want with this functionality.
