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.
One of the very nice things that the mobile app does is that it shows you the xf data for images. Now, you may be wondering, well, what is that, Derrick? Well, let me show you because the name is not super alluring, but the functionality is wonderful. So I'm just going to tap on a photo here. And we'll bring it up, and then what I'm going to do is I'm going to go up here to the info button, and I'm going to tap on that. And look at all this cool stuff that you get.
So, you find out the camera that is was captured with, what the shutter speed was, what the ISO was set to. What the lens focal length was, what the f-top, and that the flash was turned off. You have all that right there. And then, if you go down here to additional information, look at this, all of this information about that photo. So, as long as you don't accidentally strip it out before you upload it, or if you're viewing someone else's photo.
As long as they don't strip it out. You have a ton of information. And what's nice about this, if you see an image that you like, and you go, wow how did he do that? Or how did she do that? This is one of the ways that you can figure that out. Now, I'm going to tap on the back arrow to go back. That was under additional information. You get the basic stuff up here, the real detailed stuff down here. And just, while we're in the screen anyway, look at this, our tags show up here also.
So, very nice stuff. Let me hit the back arrow, and all of that is under the info button right in the upper right hand corner there. Just a wealth of the information about the photo that you're looking at
