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.
Here's in area in Explorer that the nerd in me really loves, and it's called the Camera Finder and it's right here in our menu. And you can see what's going on because all cameras, you know, identify themselves in photo metadata and flickr collects data and then it presents it to us on this page here. So you can see the most popular cameras in the flickr community at the moment, and it has been for some time now, the iPhone 4S, number one camera with flickr users.
Going all the way down, we have the DSL, the most popular DSL is, 5D Mark II. You can also see by category, point, shoot cameras, camera phones themselves. And then, as you go down the page, you can drill down and see what else's going on and get a complete listing. So this is pretty neat stuff. Now, once you sort of absorb the data itself, if you want to see some of images that people are doing with these devices, you just click on the link.
Get a little information about the camera itself and then Flickr will present to you some photos. All this with a camera phone, who would have thought a few years ago? So this is a terrific area, it's a Camera Finder and it's part of Explorer. And you can look up your camera and see what other people are doing with the same tools that you're using.
