For this assignment you will be setting up an online portfolio that will have images of all your artwork. We will then link our portfolios together to make an online group. This will help you see your progress as an artist, view others’ works, and collaborate.
We will use the Yahoo based web site called Flickr. You will need a Yahoo account first (this is free). Next you will register an account on Flickr (also free!) to start creating your online portfolio. Follow the directions below:
1. Go to www.flickr.com (it may be helpful to open this in a separate window) and click on Create Your Account.
Click on the Sign Up button and enter in some basic information to get a yahoo account.
Even if you already have one, make a new one specifically for this.
For your Yahoo! ID follow this format: first name last initial #
For example: John Smith would be JohnS93
It does not matter what number you select, but make sure you have your first name and last initial. NO NICK NAMES.
When you have your Yahoo! ID, log in to get started
3. Next, you will be logged into Flickr. Click on Explore Flickr.
You’ll be able to do some navigating around to figure things out for yourself. Look at the top menu bar to help you.
You will eventually upload photos of your work with my help. Flickr gives you ways to organize, edit and share your photos. You can create a contacts list of other people on Flickr. We will link ourselves together first by joining a group I have created.
JOINING THE PHOTO GROUP
Follow the directions below for your homework grade (20 points):
Setup a designated Flickr account for your photo portfolio if you do not have one already. Since this is an account for school, do not include personal photos or snapshots. All content should be art/school related (please clean off any images that are not).
Click below on your class to ask permission to join your Photo Group.
Finally, after I clear you as a member, post a message to the discussion I started to let me know you’ve made it this far. When you have your message posted you will get the 20 points for this assignment..
Add me “mrborja88” as a contact if I’m not already. This will make it easier to find photos I post for you. You will get a message from me saying I’ve made you a contact.
