Photography is meant to be shared. We photographers need a supportive community to inspire our work. Likewise, your best images deserve an appreciative audience. When we connect with friends, peers, and mentors we open ourselves up to the opportunity to learn new photographic techniques and to inspire others to try new things too. Social media is a blessing for those with a passion for art.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom makes it easy to share your images on most social media platforms through a powerful feature called Publish Services. This video tutorial will walk you through all of steps required to connect your Lightroom Catalog with the Flickr photo-sharing social media website.
Setting up the connection between Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and your albums at Flick is quick and easy with a little guidance. The setup process is especially easy if you understand the power of Collections and Smart Collections as an organizational tool.
Now you may not be particularly interested in Flickr as a social network right now. It seems like some of the wind has gone out of its sails and that other platforms are more popular right now. That’s fine. Social media platforms will rise and fall in popularity with every passing year. The important part of this tutorial is learning how the Publish Services feature works and how you can use it connect your Lightroom Catalog with the social media platforms that most interest you.
