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.
Well, now that we have iPhoto and Flickr talking to one another, I notice there are a few changes that I would like to make. The image adjustment communication is working great, but I don't really like these titles right here and I notice that I also have the same caption for both of these. I probably applied cut and paste to the caption when I was working in iPhoto, but now that I see them on Flickr, I would like to make some changes. So I'm actually going to go back to iPhoto to do that, right here, and then we are just going to push them up because the two are talking to one another.
So I'm going to open my Info Box down here and so we have Angel Island bike ride there, so I just want to change one of these. Let's change this one right here. Let's change this to a Black and White version of an Angel Island shot. Okay, excellent, good. So now we have made that change there and I think I want to change the actual titles for these photos because this is just part of a batch rename and it is not very descriptive. So I'm going to go ahead and we are going to call this Angel Island Window. I'm going to highlight that and copy it.
Now remember that trick I talked about before, Command+). It just takes me to the next one and keeps me in the same field and I'll call this Windows and then we'll do Black and White and then Command+), and we'll call this one Golden Gate Bridge and then we'll do Command+) and we'll go Marin Overlook, excellent. All right, we are all set now.
So we have made changes to both the descriptions and the titles. I'm going to go ahead and just force an update, although I saw it running a couple of times in the background. Now let's go to our Flickr site and let's take a look here. Angel Island Window. And this one did not look like it updated and the next one, Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Overlook. OK. Well, not to panic, because let's go back to the one that didn't update. I probably did something wrong. So let's test it and see if we can make updates here and push it back to iPhoto.
So we'll call this as we wanted to before, right, Black and White and I'm going to save it here. Good. And we'll go back to this one here and make sure-- and our caption didn't change. So let's do that right here and we'll call this Close up of Window. All right and we'll save that. Okay now let's go back to iPhoto. Let's make them talk to each other and let's take a look.
There we go and they did talk and we'll go to the next one. There we go. So the good news is that you can make your changes either in Flickr, or you can make them in iPhoto and then the two will sync up with one another. Sometimes, I don't know why that one time it didn't work. I have a feeling it was something that I did, because this seems like a pretty good connection to me. The good news is you enter it once, it shows up in both places, and that's exactly the way that we want it.
