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.
Under Explore, we're now in the commons area, and before the internet, you would have to go to somewhere like the Library of Congress, get access to the archives, to see photos now that are just waiting for you right here in this environment. So this is a collection of the world's public photography archives and you can see a number of the participating institutions here, and as you scroll down the page, you get samples of some of the stuff that's available.
And it's really something else. And if you're doing research, you can search through these archives for images. A lot of the shots, for example, here, let's click on this one. They have added notes or they have tried to identify people or elements in the photo. And then, if you scroll down the page you can get more information about the comments itself. And they even have FAQ. So again, this is something that is a real luxury these days.
We can just sit in our living room and explore the world's photography archives right there on our laptop or our iPad. And this is the Commons area. It's under Explore, right here on Flickr. It's truly amazing.
