Video: Sharing your photos via Flickr

Another area that iPhoto has improved online communication is with Flickr and you can actually manage Flickr account from right here in iPhoto '11 and I'm actually going to create a new set in Flickr. We're going to do it together right here, so cross your fingers that everything works okay. As I've mentioned with email and Facebook, you want to make sure that you are set up for Flickr, and you would do that in the Accounts tab of Preferences and you see I have Flickr set up right here.

Sharing your photos via Flickr

Another area that iPhoto has improved online communication is with Flickr and you can actually manage Flickr account from right here in iPhoto '11 and I'm actually going to create a new set in Flickr. We're going to do it together right here, so cross your fingers that everything works okay. As I've mentioned with email and Facebook, you want to make sure that you are set up for Flickr, and you would do that in the Accounts tab of Preferences and you see I have Flickr set up right here.

And you do it the same way you set up email and Facebook. You just click Plus, choose Flickr, enter your information. Now Flickr is a little bit more complicated than Facebook in terms of the approval process, and I can show you the window that you're going to see right now. So after you log-in with your information in iPhoto, your Flickr information and enter it in iPhoto, then Flickr is going to want to open a web browser and have you say OK a few times, just to make sure that everything is legit.

So right here you'll see this is the first page that you see. If you arrived at this page because you specifically asked iPhoto Uploader to connect to your Flickr account, click here. And this is the one that you want to click. So you say okay, yes, I am the one that did that. And then you'll see another screen and this is the screen where Flickr will ask you to authorize. Authorize this and it will just sort of spells out what you're authorizing, and then click OK on that to authorize it.

And then once you do that, then it will go okay, everything is cool. Connectivity has been established between iPhoto and Flickr and I've already done that for you, but I wanted you to see what that process was. So now let's actually add some photos to Flickr. So I haven't added anything from the Germany trip. I've been waiting so that we could do this together. So I'm going to select some shots here. I will select this one and I will select this one. I like this one.

We'll do the Dom. We've got to do the food. I just love having at least one food shot in my travel stuff. Do another Dom shot, and then we'll do one of me. Okay, so we've made our selections. Go to Share. I want to share on Flickr. Now this is very similar to what we saw in Facebook, if you watched the Facebook movie, which is we have existing sets. We have our Photostream, which doesn't put the images in a set.

It's just kind of does them in your daily there. And then you can create a new set and that's what I want to do here. I want to create a new set, so I'm going to click on that. We can give set name, Germany. Viewable by. I want everyone to see it, right? However, if you wanted to upload some stuff and see how it looked on Flickr, you can change the permissions later, but we're going to let anyone see this. The photo size, I like them to fit within 1024.

I think that's a nice size, and that's all there is to it. So now I'll click Publish and iPhoto will go to work here. You can see it doing its thing right over here. Okay, eight photos have been added to my Flickr account and it should have created a new set. Let's take a look. Click back here on All Albums, look at that. There is my new set right there. It's on Flickr.

I can also make adjustments to my images right here in iPhoto and then upload them to Flickr. iPhoto will sync them for me. I don't have to go to Flickr to do that. And over here you'll notice that if I right-click on this, just to prove that this actually works, you'll see that all the photos from Germany that we had in iPhoto are uploaded here and they look terrific. Now once you're in Flickr, you can continue to do more stuff.

For instance, if you wanted to, you could add some more tagging information and things like that, but it looks fabulous and it's a very easy thing to do. So the Flickr to iPhoto '11 connection has been improved greatly and if you use Flickr, I think you like managing your images from iPhoto.
