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 organize photos of like kind in a container called a set. And sets are, they're right here on the secondary nav bar. You can see them, and we have some sets already. And we have a set of Victoria. We have our I-5 overpasses, we have flowers. Look at those images, go back to viewing all of our sets here, and while we're over here we can actually create a new set. Go all the way over here to Add New Set.
Let's do one right now. So, this brings us to the organizer interface. This is the interface from previous Flickr. They hung on to this. And essentially, you just make sure that you're in the sets and collections area, which you will be if you click on that previous link that we saw. If you're in the organizer doing something else, you can always click up here on Sets & Collections and it will bring you back to this spot right here. And then all we have to do is drag the photos that we want in our set. And then you can change the order, you can move them around. You can do something like that.
And then the set cover is determined by the shot that you just drag right there. Tidy up a bit here. And then we'll give it a name. I'll call it Photo Sport. Now, one thing I have discovered using Flickr is that you actually want to add this metadata because it will be cataloged by Google Search and it will show up in searches online. So it's worth doing. And I'll just write a little blurb about it.
Okay, so we're all ready to go. We have them in the order we want it, we have our cover photo. We've added some metadata. Go ahead and click Save. And let's add it to our sets; let's go to our Photostream. And let's look at sets and there we go. We have now added a new set. And then, the Add New Set link has moved down to the bottom of the stack. So, it's pretty easy to create sets. And remember, just by way of reminder, that when you're uploading a batch of photos in the uploader, right here, Lets go to Desktop right now.
But if I picked a bunch of shots, it also gives me a chance to create a set on upload, so you can do that at that time also. You don't have to wait 'till later. But if you decide later on that you want to pull together a bunch of photos and create a set this is the way that you do it
