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.
Before I actually upload my photo to my Flickr account, I have two more things that I want to do. I want to check my privacy and then add a venue. Let's start out by just checking our privacy, I have it as Public right now because that was my default, I did that in settings. But if I tap on Public, If I wanted to change the privacy setting, let's say, to only me, I can do that right now. I don't. I want to keep it Public, so I'm just going to tap on Cancel.
Now, Add a Venue. In an earlier movie, I mentioned that the iPhone Geotags images. And that you can add that to Flickr, so let's go down here to Add a Venue. I'm just going to tap on that right now and look what I found. Here we are. Look at this. Lynda.com HQ. I want to add that to this. So, this time I do want it, so I'm just going to tap on that and look right here. It's been added to my venue, so I think we're in pretty good shape right now. We have a title, we have tags, we've added it to a set, we've checked our privacy, we've added a venue...
Let's just go ahead and click on upload, right here, and add this to our Flickr account. There we go, and look at that. We have added a photo that we captured with our iPhone using all those wonderful captured tools. We did a little image editing fun we added metadata. Let me just tap on right here. And now it has become a part of our Flicker world, so there you go. That is step one of adding photos via the iPhone.
But guess what, there's still one more thing we can do which is add photos from our camera roll and I'm going to tackle that in our next movie.
