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.
One thing that I like to do is get inspired by other people's photos, and Flickr is fantastic for that. In fact, they have an area called Explore, right down here. See this little icon right here? I'm going to tap on that. And they have two areas. So, they have what they call Interesting, and indeed it is. And you just look at this, and wow, there's really neat shots here. And if you want to see more by that photographer. Then, you just tap on any of the shots, and you go to a bigger version of that shot and, of course, their area. And then, you have nearby.
So, in our case, we're in Carpinteria right now, so I'm just going to go over here and tap right here on the nearby button. And, well, this is what's happening in Carpinteria right now. Looks like a coffee machine and not much else. Believe me, it's more interesting than this here, so I just want to say that we're getting a bum rap right now on Flickr. Usually you have beautiful ocean shots and things like that. So, we'll go back to Interesting because it is far more interesting right now.
But I just want you to know that down here, this little icon, is a great thing to tap on when you just want to see some great photography. Maybe get some new ideas. Get inspired to go out and make your own beautiful pictures.
