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 send photos via email directly out of Flickr. So for example say that I just finished this trip and I'm in my new location and I want to send photos of the trip back to the family I can do that. Just click on the image, go to the Share icon, choose Email. Enter the email address and the message and send it off. Let's go back to our photo stream. Now the email address that I send it from, remember that is managed in our settings. So we'll go to Settings here and we'll go to Email Notifications. What the viewer would see is that it would be sent from this address right here. Now if you want to send a group of photos you can also do that. Put it in a set.
Open up the set. You'll notice that we have the Share icon right here. So click on that. Now I will choose Email. And so all of our images from the set will be attached to the email. And that's all there is to it. So individual photos or a whole set of photos either can be emailed directly out of Flickr.
