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 want to start your own group, it's easy enough to do. We'll go up here to Communities. Go to Create a Group. Now you have to decide, what type of group do you want? Now, generally speaking, most of the groups on Flickr are public, for anyone to join. That's kind of the idea. Here there's a great way to meet the photographers, but you can create an invitation only group, or a Private group. So its up to you, you got these different options. We're going to go ahead and Create a Public group.
I have to give it a name and what's it about. Our Group safety level. Well, I think kittens and puppies is probably safe for everyone. So, we'll leave that, and go to next. Now, non-members, so people who haven't actually joined the group yet, what will they get to see? And generally speaking, I like them to be able to see everything. Both the discussion that's going on. Each group has a built in forum, and then also the photo poll, which is all the contribution from group members. So we're going to leave both of those boxes checked. If you feel differently then uncheck accordingly.
And then you just get to name the different functions of the group. The Admin, the moderator and the member. And then once you do that click All Done. I'm actually not going to do that right now. And once you do click All Done, you will have created a group, and it will after a period of time look something like this. Where you have contributing photos. You have Discussion, where people can talk about stuff and comment.
And then of course, when you click on the More Photos, you get that nice, more new style view of things. So that's under Communities. You go to Create a Group. And you can start your own birds of a feather, and it's a lot of fun.
