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.
If you've decided after looking at a photo for awhile that you would like it a little different. Maybe cropped tight or something like that, you don't have to delete and do all that, you can just actually replace the photo. I'm going to click on this guy right here, I want to replace this guy. It needs to be cropped tighter. I'd live with it for a while before I came to that conclusion, but I'm there now, so I'm going to go to our three dots and I'm going to go to replace this photo. It's going to ask me, well, what do you want to replace it with? So, I happen to have one here ready to go, which is that. We'll Upload it, yes, you see, I like it better like this. And, look, we have been notified that our photo's been replaced. Let's go back to our Photostream.
We'll scroll down here to the bottom. (SOUND). You see now, if I deleted this one and did a new photo, then this shot would end up up here at the top, right? Because that's the way the photos train works, it's chronological. I didn't want it at the top. I wanted it next to the photo that I had it with. And that's the advantage of replacing instead of deleting and adding a new one. In addition to that, you notice that my Metadata such as the title of the photo, remains the same. So there's some real value to replacing a photo instead of deleting and adding a new one.
And I think the one reason why I think it's so important is that I just want to keep it where it is in my Photostream. I don't want it popping to the top. If that's the case for you, then use Replace Photo.
