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.
In addition to looking at Stats, you could also just see what's popular. They have a Popular category for your site. We're on The Digital Story site right now, and I'm going to go up here, and I'm going to go down here to Popular. And then they rank the photos by views, and how many people count this as a favorite, and comments. So that one had 63 faves. It's really interesting, again, when you're looking at your photography. You know you come to it with I think certain preconceived ideas of what's good and what isn't.
One of the things that I like about Flickr is that you can see what other people think is good. And sometimes it helps you just sort of calibrate. And I'm not saying that you need to shoot for what's always popular. But I think it helps you understand the types of images that you take that resonate with other people. So for that effect, I think it's worth taking a look at this page every now and then. Just to see of all the shots that I've published on the site, you know, these are the ones that seem to really resonate with folks.
And some of them are surprises. I know when I put this one up recently, I did it more as kind of a travel log photo and people really liked it. And it actually ends up on the popular page and what they liked about it were the soft colors. And that's something that hadn't really occurred to me. There we go, so, this is where you're looking at your images from other people's perspective can be very image. So, that's Popular and the way to get to that as I mentioned at the top of the movie is this right here, new year three dots, and it'll be in your popup menu.
After you've had some shots up for a while, take a look and see what other people, are liking about your stuff.
