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.
Let's spend a few minutes in our Photostream. I mean Photostream, is the heart of your Flickr page. This is where images appear in chronological order as you upload them here at the top. And as you move down your Photostream, you get into your photos. But you have a chance to experience your photos a couple of different ways. Let's go down to our flower shot, for example, here in our Photostream. If I want a closer look at it, I can click on it. And we get the larger version and we also get the magnify glass. Now, if I click again.
We'll go into Lightbox mode so that most of the distractions are eliminated. By the way, you can do Lightbox mode with L key also on your keyboard to toggle in and out. So, I'll hit the L key to toggle out, and then the L key again to toggle back in. We also have navigation. So, we can go to the next photo, and the arrow keys on your keyboard also do the same thing. So, I'll hit the Back Arrow to go back to our image. Now, in the old flickr we also had a link to view all sizes here. That has actually been moved.
So, I'm going to go out of Lightbox mode, I'll hit the L key. And go down here to the three Flicker dots, click on them and you see that we have view all sizes here now. And this is actually the old interface with a new nav bar, but this is where that functionality lives now. I'm going to go ahead and hit the Back key. I'll bring this back to this mode. And while we're here, you should also know that there are a few other goodies here that we will explore off and on through different movies. And your XF data is here now also.
And you can actually click on the image to bring this back to right here. You can add a comment by clicking here. Or you can just scroll. And if it was someone else's photo you can mark it as a favorite. When you're done enjoying the photo if you want to go back to the Photo Stream page. Then just go to You. Click on Photostream. And it brings us back to where we began. (SOUND) So, they moved a few things around from the older version, but it's still fairly easy to navigate.
And, it's such a delight to look at the images in this new and improved layout, isn't it?
