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.
In the previous movie I talked about adding people as a contact. Well, how do you know when someone adds you? Right? Well, the easiest thing to do is just go to your Flickr homepage, just click on Flickr right there, bring you to the homepage. And in this big column here, you get to see all sorts of activity including, look at this as I scroll down here, people that added us as a contact, right here. And what's really neat here is, remember if you listen to the previous movie, how I said that if you add someone as a contact, they'll probably add you back.
Well, Flickr encourages that (INAUDIBLE) to get a big Add button right here and if you want, go to their photo stream first before you add them. Which actually, I suggest, I do this myself. I like to see what kind of pictures they're taking because, if I don't like their brand of photography, remember it's going to be showing up here big as life on my page. So, you might want to take a look at their shots first by clicking on the photo stream then, if you like their photography add them back as a contact. That way you'll know that the photos that you see on your homepage will probably be stuff that you're interested in.
But you can follow that activity right here just click on the Flickr icon, bring it to your homepage and you can see all the good stuff that's going on including folks that have added you as a contact.
