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.
One of the things that I want to show you right now, and this is a fairly effective tool, this is how to tell a story with your Flickr images. Now, the nice thing about it is that you can actually arrange the story in iPhoto and then upload it to Flickr. So you can play around within an iPhoto, get it the way that you want and then send the images up to Flickr. Now, I tried that out here with this one right here. It's called From Lynda to Home and basically what I did was I started taking pictures when I left the office here at lynda.com, which is in Southern California, and then I documented my journey home to Northern California. Now, let me show you how that works.
So I'm just going to click on the Detail of the set and what I did in iPhoto was that I picked the photos that I wanted to tell the story and then in the Description field, I wrote a little story to go along with the photos. I gave each one a title and then as people just scroll through, they can actually see the story, so I started at lynda.com. I stopped in Santa Barbara on my way to the airport. I was hungry, had a bite to eat. The Mexican food there was really good by the way.
Here is inside and then I had to get back in the car and get to the airport but I had a rental car, so I had to stop at Enterprise to make sure that I turned my car back into the big rental car lot right here at the airport. And then I had to walk over to the terminal. This is the Santa Barbara terminal. I will tell you, it does not feel like an airport at all. It is a very, very small place. And then I got in the plane and I flew to San Francisco and I landed in San Francisco. It was not a gigantic plane. I'm a rather tall person, so you can imagine how well I fit in this little 30-seater here.
The cool thing is that when you get out of the plane, you are actually out on the tarmac. You are not in one of those fancy walkways that take you directly to inside the airport. Then I had to walk to get out of the airport and then I catch a bus and I caught the Marin Airporter. Here I'm riding on the bus because my car was parked in Larkspur. So I get off the bus here, I get in my car and the last leg of the journey is to drive home and I took this shot out the car window while I was driving with a long exposure to give those taillights bouncing around. Then I ended up home in Santa Rosa, home of Schulz Museum.
So here it is just a little story. I organized it in iPhoto. I create an album. I put all the pictures in it. I added all of the details such as the titles and the descriptions and then I use the Flickr tool to upload it to Flickr. So it's very handy, it's very nice, it's another way in addition to the other tools that we have to tell the story or to document something that you do. Give it a try. It's a lot of fun.
