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.
Well, Flickr is a sharing environment in itself and it has its own community. But there are times when we may want to share our photos on Flickr with our Facebook friends or on Twitter. And you can do that, you can set that up and it actually, it's very easy on the iPhone to do that. Once again, I'm going to go to the More menu, where the two dots are right here. I'm going to just tap on that. And then, I'm going to go up here to Settings. We'll tap on that. And then, I'm going to go up here to share, just like this. And I have three basic sharing options, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. I don't have anything set up for Tumblr because I don't use it, but you'll see that my Facebook and my Twitter are already set up. And it's really easy to do because if you're using those on your iPhone, then you've already entered your log in information for those accounts. And all you have to do, for example, on Facebook, now I'm already logged in, so when I tap on it, it's going to ask me if I want to Disconnect. I'm just going to Cancel that, but if I hadn't already logged in I'll tap on it. And it'll just go ahead and log me in based on the settings that I've already established in my preferences for the iPhone.
And the same things with Twitter. If I just tap on Twitter right now, it's going to say, hey, do you want to log out? Go no, no, no. I want to stay logged in, but if I hadn't done that already it would go ahead and just log me in under the account that I've already established. By doing this, then when you add a photo in your mobile Flickr here, then you can just easily share your stuff with these other groups. And this is very convenient. And Flickr becomes a data base of your images for all sorts of uses, including your social networking.
