There is a complete set of online editing tools included in the Flickr platform. So even if your picture isn't perfect when it's uploaded, you still have a chance to fine tune it with a number of different effects and adjustments. In this video, I demonstrate how to retouch a portrait. Afterward, you can either save over the original image, or put the corrected version alongside it.
- [Voiceover] There's a couple nice tools for editing portraits in our online editor. I want to show them to you right now. We'll use this portrait right here, which already looks pretty good, but ya know we want to play the tools, right? So the first thing I'm going to do, is I'm going to zoom in a bit so we can get a better look. Let's do that right there, and then we go over to this arrow here and this reveals two tools I want to show you. We'll start with blemish, and basically you just pick your brush size that you want to use.
And you hover over the blemish, and then you click. And same thing here,and click, and away they go. And I don't know if you can see that on your screen these blemishes are fairly faint but they are gone. They are gone. They did a nice job there. So I'll go ahead and apply that, and then we can whiten the teeth also. This is kind of fun. So make the brush size a little bit smaller on that Now the thing about tooth whitening is you just do one pass with this editor you don't go crazy.
So I'm just going to go, and I'm just going to go right across just like that. Just one pass, isn't that nice? Click apply. Let me just show you, we'll go back one so you can see the difference. That's before, and that's after and you don't want to do anymore than that believe me. (laughing) It just gets crazy, they get the florescent teeth it's scary, it's scary. Now if you need it, there's also red eye here and it would work as you would anticipate if she had red eye then you would just pick the brush size and hover over it and click, and it would get rid of the red eye for you, okay? So that's really terrific.
And then just like with all the other tutorials we've done up until this point in the online editor you just click save, and your image is saved back to your photo stream. You have the option of either saving over the existing image, replacing it or saving a copy that goes by its side your choice. But pretty nice little tools and the tooth whitening in particular I think is nice and I'm pretty impressed with the blemish move tool also.
