Setting up Flickr publishing services

It is an incredibly exciting time to be a photographer, and it's exciting because there's so many different ways that you can get feedback on your photographs, and there are so many different ways that you can share your photographs, and there are so many different ways that you can view other people's photographs. And one of the nice things about Lightroom 3 is its really taking advantage of that. And by default, Lightroom 3 comes pre -installed with this Flickr plug-in. If you open up your Publish Services panel here, right inside of the Library Module, you can find this particular plug-in. And this allows us to publish our photos directly to Flickr.

Now, keep in mind, you can also publish your photos to other different photo sharing sites like SmugMug and many others. And one of the things that you're going to soon see is that the Publish Service plug-ins are going to blossom and flourish and evolve in some really fascinating ways. Yet, fortunately for us, by default, we at least have access to Flickr. Now, of course, you have to have a Flickr account, and what you need to do is you need to set up your connection to that account. And that's what we're going to do here. So I'm going to go ahead and click on Setup. This will open up the Lightroom Publishing Manager.

Now, the first thing I need to do is give a description. So I'll go ahead and call this one chris orwig - flickr. Now, this name is only for myself, so you can put anything you want there. Next, I need to log into Flickr and I've actually already done that and I'll go ahead and authorize this. And I'm already logged into my Flickr account. I've arrived here. Yes, do I want to have a Adobe Photoshop Lightroom connect to Flickr? Sure. Click Next. Do I want to authorize it? Heck yeah. So I'll go ahead and click OK. Now, once I've done that, I need to head back to Lightroom.

So I'll go ahead and hide Firefox and go back to Lightroom and say, yeah, I'm done, and it will tell me that I'm logged in as Chris Orwig. Now, we have a couple of really interesting options here. One of the things that we can do is we can set our Flickr title using the IPTC field. What this means is we can take advantage of metadata for out titles and you have a few other options here. You can just use a filename, or you can just leave it blank for all intents and purposes. So if you choose Filename, what you may want to do is then rename your files to particular custom text.

So in this case, I'll choose a custom name, perhaps plus a sequence, and here I've used recently david, these are all photographs of the photographer David duChemin. So we'll go ahead and add his name as the title there. And then File Settings, what do I want to do down below? 60 Quality. That will be fine. Resize to fit, 1000x1000, sure. All we need is really a online screen viewing for those images. Sharpen For the screen. Standard Amount, that typically works best. New to Lightroom 3, we can add a watermark to our photographs.

Now, typically you don't want to do that on Flickr, so I'm not going to include that. We do have some Privacy and Safety options. And you can have these Private for Friends and Family or Public. Now, I'm skimming through these options and going a little quick here, because for the most part, the default settings are fine. So again, the default settings are really good. The one area that you may want to dig into is figuring out how you want to set your titles for your images. Also, when updating photos, replace the existing title, that way if you make changes, you make sure the title is always current.

Once we've dialed in all of these settings inside of the Lightroom Publishing Manager, all that we need to do is simply hit Save. Now that we've done that, it's going to recognize that, yes, I have a connection to Flickr, and it's going to show me that I have a Photostream connection. Now, I haven't uploaded any photographs yet, and I need to figure out how to customizes this a little bit, so that my photos work well and look good on my Flickr Photostream, and we'll talk about doing that in the next movie.
