iPhoto and Flickr are a perfect match for sharing pictures on the web. In iPhoto '09: 10 Things to Know About Flickr, instructor Derrick Story explains how these two applications work together to create online albums, known as sets. From the basics, like setting up a free Flickr account, to the more advanced features, like creating an iPhoto slideshow to publish on Flickr, Derrick reveals features that both beginning and advanced photographers can use to enhance their online collections.
Now if you don't have a Flickr account already it's pretty easy to get one. You just go back to the homepage here as we talked about, flickr.com. If you don't have an account, you come here and instead of signing in you would click on the Create Your Account. Now if you have a Yahoo! ID already, it's really simple because -- so if you're using Yahoo! Mail or other Yahoo! services, all you have to do is enter your Yahoo! ID, if it's not there already, mine is already filled in for me, and enter your password and then you are up and running right away.
If you don't have a Yahoo! ID then you have to actually create one and I'm going to click on this and see if I can emulate this by clicking on as a different user, here we go. So you would see this then. "Don't have a Yahoo! ID? Signing up is easy." So then you actually have sort of twofold process. You have to create your Yahoo! ID, make sure you remember it, and then create your Flickr account from there. So it is a lot easier if you already have a Yahoo! ID. It will take you a few minutes longer. I think the biggest challenge, we were testing this, because I already had a Flickr account. I hadn't signed up for one in a long time so I thought, well okay, we have got to relive this experience since we are going to be talking about it and the thing that we noticed was that so many people use Flickr that maybe your name or the name that you want to use is not available.
So one of the exercises that you might want to do first is have maybe a short list of names that you would use as your Flickr ID because chances are and the chances are pretty good that your first choice or your second choice won't be available. Someone else will probably have it and you don't want to start out this process all frustrated and mad and clicking on your mouse too hard. So other than that, it's pretty straightforward. Once you do that, then you can go ahead and sign in and it will remember you and you are off to the races.
As always, just make sure that you hang on to both your password and your ID name, so that up the road you don't have to do the password recovery because that's not fun either. All right, so go ahead and get signed up and then meet me back here and then we are going to start doing some iPhoto to Flickr. This is where the fun really begins.
