With the Flickr Photo Editor, you can edit images that have already been uploaded to Flickr, allowing you to express your artistic side!
How to access the Photo Editor
- Click on a photo in your Photostream.
- Click the Edit Icon | select Edit with Flickr Photo Editor.
- Edit by selecting from the toolbar.
- Once you have finished editing, click Save. At this stage, you can either save a new copy of the image or replace the original photo.
Note: If you chose to replace the original photo, we will not be able to restore this for you.
The toolbar consists of 7 functions:
- Transform - which allows you to rotate, crop, or set the ratio of your image. Alternatively, you can choose to lock the resolution.
- Filters - has 7 categories, such as cold, warm, vintage, black & white, etc, each containing different filter variations so you can set the tone and colors of your photo to your liking.
- Adjust - includes basic correctional settings such as brightness, saturation, contrast, and gamma. It also allows you to refine aspects of your photo such as exposure, sharpness, highlight, shadows, etc. Pro Tip! You can ‘reset to default’ at any time by clicking the button at the top.
- Focus - contains presets for radial, mirrored, linear, and gaussian focus.
- Text - as the title suggests, allows you to add text. You can customize the font, size, color, background, and spacing. Click the ‘Flickr’ button to add additional text boxes.
- Brush - allows you to draw and add your own doodles to the photo. You can customize the color, width, and hardness of the brush.
- Frames - there are 5 to choose from and you can adjust the width and opacity. Remove the frame at any time by clicking ‘none’.
If you wish to undo or redo any of your edits, you can use the arrows in the top left-hand corner to do so.
