How to get Get the Most Out of Flickr

SLOCC Flickr

Flickr is so much more than a place to display your photographs. Flickr is a place to connect, to discover, and to evolve as photographers and lovers of photography. It’s is the world’s largest photographer-focused community.

Pat Brown will give you a tour of Flickr and explain how to get the most out of it whether you have a Flickr account or not. She will describe the best ways to use its features and how to set up an account. Pat will also review the new account levels that were announced at the beginning of November 2018.

Flickr is a great way to interact with other photographers and she hopes that SLOCC members can become more involved in Flickr as a way to learn and improve their photography. There is already a Flickr group devoted to SLOCC at: https://www.flickr.com/groups/slocc/pool/ . We are a club about photography and this a wonderful tool to connect members and further our photographic skills.

Every meeting showcases a Main Program and a Show and Tell (where each member may bring up to 5 images on any subject, whether to ask for some ideas on how to make them better or just to show us what you've been up to. At some meetings Field Trip images will be shown, featuring photos taken by our members at a recent outing.

Submissions For "Field Trip Shows" & "Show and Tell"

Digital images (JPGs only) must be submitted on a Flash Drive clearly marked with your name. Images must be in the sRGB color space and sized to at least 1024x768 pixels and no larger than 1800 pixels on the longest side of the image. Use your name as the first part of the file name. An example of naming your image files would be as follows: if your name is Mary Smith, then you would name your files: marysmith1.jpg, marysmith2.jpg, etc. File names for the Field Trip images should start with "FT": FTmarysmith1.jpg, FTmarysmith2.jpg 

For more assistance, see our tutorial on How to Prepare Digital Images for Projection.
