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've certainly covered a lot of ground in Flickr. So, what now? What's next? Well, a couple things I'd like to leave you with. One is, I really want you to explore the world of Flickr. And it can be exploring groups and finding other photographers who have similar interests to yours, and joining those groups and sharing photos, and looking at those photos. Or it could be exploring Flickr even on a grander scale. Where you use the Explore page, and you look at video, and analog images, and the world map and just really find these great shots that inspire and educate you. But really the most important thing is to upload your own work to Flickr, do it at a level that you're most comfortable with.
But get to those photos off your desktop computer, and get them out into the world where other people can enjoy them and give you feedback. And at the end of the day, I think that's the part about Flickr that excites me the most.
