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.
You can take pictures with the app, and we have a camera icon in the upper right hand corner here, that will get us started. I'm going to tap on that right now. And we have two options. You can take a new photo. So, you'll use the built in camera with your mobile device to do that. Or you can choose an image that you've already recorded from your gallery. We'll do that right now. I'll tap on Choose From Gallery, and I'll tap on the Flickr, seven photos, and I'm going to tap on an image I shot recently with this camera phone. Then I will tap on Done.
Once I have the image on my screen, I have a few options. We have the Flickr filters that are always fun. So, I'll tap on Mammoth, we'll take a look. That's kind of neat. I'll tap on Wallaby. I'm sliding from right to left as I go through these filters. Let's take a look at one more. How about Salamander? Yes, see, those are very nice. I'm going to swipe back to the right.
I'm going to go with Wallaby. Now, once I've selected my filter, and I think the Wallaby look, by the way, is great for kind of the retro looking camera. I have another option. We have the pencil icon in the upper right hand corner. I'm going to tap on that, and I have some editing controls, so Enhance Orientation, Crop, Brightness, Contrast. I'm going to swipe from right to left. Saturation, Sharpness, we can Draw, we can add Text, Redeye reduction. Swipe one more time from right to left.
Whiten, and Blemish. Now, if you use the online Flickr editor, these will be familiar to you. I'm going to swipe back and we'll play with brightness for just a moment. Tap on that. And I'm going to darken the image a bit. I'm swiping to the left on the dial. Darken it just a bit more. That looks good. Then, I'll tap the Apply button, then I'll tap the Done button to exit the editor.
It'll save my image and apply the filter. I think we're all ready to go image wise. So now, let's add a little meta data. I'll tap Next. Here, I can add title and description. We'll just make it a simple title. I'll type Camera. Once I tap the Upload button, it will go directly to my photostream. And if I want to share on other social networking sites at the same time, I can by tapping on the Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or send via e-mail. So, you can publish in multiple spots at the same time. I think we're all ready to go.
So, I'll tap the Upload button and we'll add this to our Flickr photostream.
