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.
The command central for me in the Flickr app is the photo stream page and you get to that by going right here. That's me right there, that little icon, so I'm going to tap on that and we're going to navigate around this page for just a bit. So, true to it's name, we do actually have a photo stream right here. Here's our photostream that we have been working on. And you have two ways that you can look at it. Right now we are in thumbnail mode, but if you go up here, and click on this icon, you can look at it in List mode. And you get a little bit more information.
You some activity that's going on with that. Generally speaking, I like looking at the thumbnails, so I'm going to tap on that icon again and look at the thumbnails. Now, you also notice that we have some tabs right here, and the first tab to the far left is our sets tab. I'm going to tap on that. And here we get to see the sets that we've established, and if we tap on any set, we can actually look inside of it.
So, I'm going to tap back on the arrow, tap on the back arrow again. And move over to groups. So, if you've joined any groups, this will light up, it's blue right now. It means I have a group that I've joined. So, I'm going to tap on groups and what a shocker, I have joined the digital story. And so that's listed here. And if I tap on this, that will take me over to the photos from that group. And so, the more groups you add, the longer this list gets. Let's go back to the back arrow.
We have more tabs to cover. Now, if you've marked any photos as favorites and that's by tapping on the star by looking at the photo, then you can tap right here on the favorites tab. And sort of like, your collection of favorite photos. So, as your out hanging out in Flickr, looking at stuff and you go, I really like that shot. For instance this lovely shot of Jim's dog. You'll notice that I have tapped the star right there.
And that will add it to my favorites. So, now I'm going to tap the back arrow again, our favorites and then photos of yes yours truly. Photos of, I'm going to tap on that right now. You can add yourself if you want photos of you, I know it sounds sort of funny, photos of me. But we get things were people go hey, could you send me a photo to go with this blog post that I'm doing? Or whatever. It's nice to have them collected.
And of course, the way that you add a photo of you, I'm just going to tap on this here. When you have a photo view in your photo stream or somewhere on your camera and you bring it into Flickr, what you have to do is you have to go up here to the I icon. Tap on that and then you go down here to people in this Photo. You tap on that and then you take it. And that's the way that that happens. So, when you put your name on there, then it will show up, if it's your account, it will show up back here.
We're working our way all the way back. It will show up here in Photos Of. So, this is in my name. I tagged it with my name and then it shows up right here. So, yes, you can have your own I love me gallery right here in the Flicker mobile app. And then finally the last tab that we want to take a look at is contacts. And this is that list of contacts that we had talked about in a previous movie. And if you want to see what they're doing. Of course, you could just tap on that and you go right over to their page, just like that.
So, I'm going to tap on the back arrow, back arrow again. So, this is our photo stream page, it's really nice. There's a lot of stuff going on here and in the next movie I'm going to talk a little bit about how you can monitor the activity of both your photos and your contacts.
