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.
So, over time there are statistics associated with your Flickr site. And, they will share them with you, which is more than I can say for some other sites. Now, the way that you get to that, is you go up to You, and you go to Stats, and here's what you see. Now, they're not automatically enabled. You have to have them activated, but it's not a big deal all you have to do is just click on the Yes, Activate me, and they'll let you know. I think when I did it for digital story it was like within a half and hour I heard from them and they'll give you all this information and actually I can show you.
Here are the Stats for the digital story site, so you can actually see what's going on. You can see View counts which is what we're looking at right here. So you can see whats going on today, yesterday with photos and videos. Your all time View counts, Photostream, Sets, Collections and Galleries. Let me scroll down here, and you can see what's most viewed today, this is looking at today. Refers, there's a lot of good stuff here.
All available to you, and especially after you've been using your site for a while, it's very handy and it just. Kind of let's you take a look at trending and get a nice analytical review of the shots that people like. And not only views and fave, often are being favored things like that. So again, you have to enable it. And to get started with it you just go up to You, go to Stats, enable it and then it''ll let you know. And then you can see what's going on with your site from an analytical point of view.
