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.
We're going to talk about Favorites for a moment, and being on the receiving end of favorites is terrific. It feels good because it's an easy way for other photographers to let you know they like what you did with a photograph. And it's also nice to give that feedback to other photographers, and in the mobile app, it's very easy to do. I actually love this functionality they built in. So, I'm looking at our Contacts here, and I'm scrolling through the shot. Now some of these have been marked as favorites already, for instance this really cool shot by Jim Heid.
And you can tell by the Flickr pink star, that's very distinctive. I'm scrolling down here. Now, here's a shot by Samara, her doggy, that I really like. So, all I'm going to do is just double tap right here on the photograph, with my finger. And you'll see the indication that I've marked it as a Favorite, and then it will actually become a favorite. So, let's do it right now. I'm going to double tap, and boom just like that. It's really easy to do. So now you can just scroll through shots from your contacts, from, when you're exploring Flicker.
People that you don't necessarily know their work before, and you see something you like. All you have to do is double tap on the photo to mark it as a Favorite. I love that functionality, I think it's terrific.
