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.
So as you're working with your images. And you decide that, hey, I would love to embed a shot in an HTML page. It could be in a blog or a business website. whatever it happens to be. You can actually do that. If you go down here to Share. You know? First go to the image that you want to embed. And go down here to the Share Button. And we seen this before. We've talked about on the socials. And you can just grab the straight link to the page, but that's not what we're after, we want some HTML code.
Click on that, choose the size of the image that you want embedded. 500 pixels, 640 wide, 800 wide. Whatever works best for you. We'll go with 640 right here. And then Flickr will generate the code for you. So you just highlight it by clicking on it. I just use the copy command. So I'll just do keyboard Cmd+C and copy it. And now I have it on the clipboard and I can go to my blog and embed that code.
What's interesting about doing it that way is that the image will show up on the HTML pages. If they click on the image, it will take them, in this case right over to your Flickr page where they can get a closer look at it. And they can use all the wonderful Flickr tools to further enjoy the shot. So that's the Embed code. And it's under Share. And it's great for sticking stuff on HTML pages.
