Video: Editing pictures with the Flickr mobile app

So not only can you apply these wonderful filters, when you're working in the Flicker app with your pictures. You can actually do some fairly serious image editing by clicking on the Pencil icon right there. Let's take a look and see what we have. I'm going to tap on that right now, and it loads the Photo Editor, and we have a whole bunch of tools right there at the bottom. We actually have three screens of tools, here's the first set. Now I'm just going to swipe on them, here's the second set, and here's the third set. Really nice, you can notice how the little dot changes, so you know where you are. Let's go back to the first set.

So not only can you apply these wonderful filters, when you're working in the Flicker app with your pictures. You can actually do some fairly serious image editing by clicking on the Pencil icon right there. Let's take a look and see what we have. I'm going to tap on that right now, and it loads the Photo Editor, and we have a whole bunch of tools right there at the bottom. We actually have three screens of tools, here's the first set. Now I'm just going to swipe on them, here's the second set, and here's the third set. Really nice, you can notice how the little dot changes, so you know where you are. Let's go back to the first set.

The first set has the stuff that you're going to use most of the time. Enhance is an automatic filter that actually has some sub-filters in it. And let's just start there, because sometimes, it can do wonderful things for your shot, and sometimes it does absolutely nothing. If you've used Enhance in other applications, you know how this works, so I'm just going to tap on it right now. See, we have Auto, Night, Backlit, and Balance. So depending on your situation, most of the time if people use Enhance you're going to go ahead and click on Auto. And in this case, I think we de-enhanced, right? That's not an improvement at all. In fact we have taken a step back.

So then, speaking of back, we go up here to the back arrow, tap on that and say no, we reject your enhancement. So, we also have orientation, we're looking just fine right now, so we don't need that, we don't need to flip it around on it's head or anything like that. We can also Crop, cropping is very important, I think it's one of the most important tools in image editing, so let's tap on that. And we get the little handles. Cropping is very fun and easy. Just grab a handle, drag it and you do something like that, you go, yes, I like that.

And just Apply, and if you like it, you can stick with it, you hit Done, if not, just hit Cancel. Go back to our little pencil here, load the Photo Editor again. By the way that is the most elegant way to back out of a crop. You have Brightness and Contrast also. Now we have pretty good exposure on these, so I'll just blow by those. But if you want to make things brighter or darker you have Brightness, hit the back arrow, if you want to make it more contrast, you have a Contrast slider. Hit the back arrow again. So let's slide over to the next group.

Saturation, well, we don't really have a lot of color here, so that's not going to do us much good. But, if you wanted to bump up a landscape or something like that, you have a Saturation slider. Sharpness, be careful with sharpness, when you have these image editing apps on mobile devices, sometimes sharpness can introduce artifacts. So I don't recommend that you use it anymore than absolutely necessary. Drawing is great if you have a stylus, let's tap on Draw right now. But if you're just using your big ole finger it could be less than elegant, but you do have different pen, so. But a stylus is much easier with Draw.

So let's just back out of that right now. You can add Text, and you can even do Redeye Correction. Swipe over to the last set, and look at this. You can even work on portraits here, in your Flickr mobile app. Do a little tooth whitening, and remove a few blemishes, pretty nifty. Let's just go back to the beginning. So once you have the image the way that you want, all you have to do is go back up here to the blue Done button, tap on that. And then, if you're happy with the image the way that it is, you click the Next button.

If not, if you want to play with Filters or something, you can do that.
