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.
Generally speaking, when we put our photos into the Flickr, they're in pretty good shape. We've probably done something to them, but more and more, especially with the mobile photography world, we may want to do a little bit more editing once they are actually in this environment and we can do that. I'm going to show you right now how to enable the editing. And then in the subsequent movies, we're going to walk through the tools, and there's a whole bunch of them and they're pretty darn good. So, let's get started with this. We'll take our flower shot here.
The editing tools or I should say, access to the editing tools, have been moved over to what's now becoming a familiar hangout for us, the Flickr three dots right here. And we go right up here and we can Edit photo. Now, we're actually going to another services partner of Flickr. And, we can work on our photo here. And then once we've done what we wanted to do, we have the option of replacing the original photo or saving the edited version as another photo. So, we have a couple of fun things to do here.
In the next movie, we're going to talk about cropping, and re-sizing and rotating. And then we'll just roll right through these tools from there. So get comfortable, and here we go.
