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 spend a lot of time in Flickr, it might be worth becoming familiar with the keyboard shortcuts. Now, I've talked about a few of them as we've been working through this title. For example hitting the Arrow key to move from one shot to the next, I'm hitting the right arrow key right now. Or to hit the L key to go into Light Box mode and then the L key again to come back out. However there are a whole bunch more and if you do the Question mark.
In this case I'll do Shift+Question Mark, It will show them to you right here, look at that. And there's a lot of them. So you have shortcut keys for adding an image to favorites, fav this photo, for example. Now there's one little bit of business that you have to do. You have to make sure that this box is checked, Enable Keyboard Shortcuts. And there's another place that it's also available. Is if you go to your Settings, and you go to Sharing and Extending.
Right down at the bottom of the page here, Keyboard Shortcuts Enabled. And there's an Edit button there where you can change that. Okay, so that's pretty nifty. We'll go back to the Photo stream here. But once you do, they are always available to you, and again while you're in Flickr just hit the Shift+Question Mark to bring them up. And now you can navigate Flickr just like a seasoned veteran.
