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 connect photos from your Aperture library to your Flickr account. And for those of you that us Aperature a lot, it's probably your home database for everything, and then you can just choose the shots that go up to Flickr. And it can save you a step because you can do it directly from this application. Now, if you watched the iPhoto movie, you know that you have to establish the connection. This is true in Aperture too, you have to establish the connection between Flickr and Aperture. That happens in Preferences. Go to Preferences, go to the web tab here, and you see that we already have Flickr setup.
And the way that happened was I just clicked the Plus, I chose Flickr, and then I authorized the communication between the two apps. It's very simple, so we have that communication set up, now I want to send these photos up to Flickr. Click the first one, I hold down the Shift key, go to the end one. And then I go up here to File, Share and I choose Flickr. And we'll get a dialog box, first of all, it's verifying that we want to send these four photos to our Flickr account.
Let's set up a new set. So, we can do that here. If I don't want to set up a new set, I can just send them directly to the photo stream. But, let's do a set because sets are fun. We'll just call it I-5 overpasses. We'll let the world see it. And we're going to go with web sized images, right there web images. You have other choices. We can send of the actual size or optimized or web. These go from largest to smallest. So, we'll go with the web images.
They're the smaller of the bunch. They're 1024. And I'm going to click on the Publish button. And they are going to work right now. So, you see under web now, we have Flickr has been added. And we can see down here, that the publishing action is happening. Now, once it finishes we should get a new album or set up here on this page that has our overpasses.
And they're there are so it says that they're on Flickr. We can open these up. Now, we're still in Aperture. So, we can manage our set or our albums, here in Aperture. So, everything looks good here. Lets go to Flicker because, I mean that's the proof, right? It show up online. So, we'll minimize this. We'll open Flicker. Lets refresh. There are our photos. So, there's our shot. Scroll down, let's take a look at the information.
We have all of our good information and, look at that, it also appears in the set by five overpasses. Fantastic. Now, if I want to do any editing on these shots, if I want to give it a name, I can call it Big gBeen Overpass. I can clean up the description if I wish. Just like before. And then Save. When I'm finished, I can go back to my Photostream.
And look at that, it's a beautiful thing. So, this is the connection between Aperture and Flickr. And they talk to each other. So, the stuff you do in Aperture will be reflected here. And vice versa. And the main thing to remember is just make sure, that when you're in Aperture, you set up that connection, under Preferences and the web tab, and you'll be good to go.
