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 you iPhoto account to your Flickr account, which is kind of convenient. You have images in iPhoto you want to share in Flickr, you can do it directly from within iPhoto. Let's take a look at how to do that. So, here I am in iPhoto. I'm going to go up here to Preferences, and I'm go to the Accounts tab under Preferences. I'm going to go to the plus icon and click on it, and I'm going to choose a Flickr from my list of possibilities. Click Add. It's going to ask me if I want to set up. Of course I do, so click on that, and even though I'm signed in it wants me to sign in again just to make double sure.
Click the Sign In button and here we go. If you arrived at this page because you specifically asked iPhoto OS 10 to connect to your Flickr account, click here. That's where we're going to click, right there. Recaps all the things we're authorizing. Sounds good to me. And now, we have done our work, you can go ahead and close this window. We will do that. I'll go ahead and minimize this. It's authorizing, we are enabled. Yay.
So, we'll go ahead and close this, now you'll notice, look at this, we have a new thing here. And it has, look at that, our Flickr activity. So, they're already talking to one another, isn't that wonderful? So now, if I want to publish a photo, on Flickr from my iPhoto account, I'm just going to click on it, we'll go down the the Share icon. I'm going to choose Flickr. I'm just going to add it directly to my photostream. I could create a new set. Or I could add it to an existing set. We'll choose photostream. And I could put it in any sets.
Viewable by anyone? Yes, but we do have options. But I want the world to see this, and then we can choose the photo size. And I'm going to go with the 1024 by 1024. That's a nice viewing size for web. I'm going to click on Publish. There we go, a nice big alert. Now, let's see if this actually worked out that way. We'll go back to our Flickr account. Let's go to our photostream. Let's refresh. And look at that.
Just like that. Look it. That came in just beautifully. Now, if I want to make any adjustments to this, I just click on it, navigate down. Let's say that I just want to clean up this title a bit. Just like that. I don't want this description. We'll take that out. We'll Save, and we've done our housekeeping. I'm going to Minimize this and we're going to go back to iPhoto for just a second. We're going to click here. Now, if I had put this in a set, it would actually show up in our set here. Here we have a set of one.
Let's just see if we can make that happen. Just go back to Flickr real quick. Take our photo here. We're going to go add to set. Add it to Camera Gear. Done. Go back to our photostream here. And finally, last step, we'll go back to iPhoto. Here we go, Camera Gear. iPhoto chats for minute with Flickr and the photo is added to the set. Beautiful.
So, there's two way communication, and the way that you set it up is going to Preferences. Establish the connection in the Accounts tab, and then off to the race as you go.
