Organize Images in Flickr
Edited by Djinu, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show how to organize your photos in Flickr. Check back often to see if there is a VisiHow video on how to install the Flickr desktop application.
We click on "You". The default option is to show us the photos by the date they were added.
We click "Magic View". This is an interesting feature, because Flickr "looks" at a photo and tags it relevantly every time we upload the photo.
Let's click on a picture. In this video, it is a picture of a peacock.
We scroll down to tags. We'll see that the picture is tagged as "bird", "animal", "pheasant", and "outdoor". These are automatically generated tags. We are free to add our own tags to the picture as well.
We can add a tag. For example, we can say that it was taken in Paris and type "Paris". We'll see that our tag will be added in a darker gray compared to the automatic tags.
We open the main page again. The column on the left shows all of the different tags that Flickr has added.
We can click a tag. For example, we can click "Dog" in this video. We'll see all of the dog photos that are taken. We can click "Architecture" as well to see any architecture that has "Arch" or "Bridges".
If we want to put together an album, we can do it very quickly by clicking on the first photo. Then, we can either press "Control" and click different photos to add them, or we can press "Shift" and click a photo down at the bottom to select a group of photos.
Once we have the photos selected, we click "Add to album".
We click "Create new album".
We name the album. Let's type "Bridges".
We can explore our albums by clicking "Albums". In this video, there is a new album called "Bridges".
That was how to quickly organize your photos inside of Flickr. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the space below. Thank you for watching VisiHow!
