Quiet Book Sew-Along: Flickr Update! {+ a tutorial on how to join a Flickr group and add photos!}

2014 February 19

Hooray! Our Quiet Book Sew-Along now has a Flickr group to hold all of your progress photos! I debated a link system on each post, but I think this will work better and it has bigger pictures, so we can see all of your hard work better! (I know there are mixed feelings on Flickr, but it seemed best seeing as how both blogger and non-blogger friends have joined up and it will be easier for the non-bloggers to use Flickr to share their work.)

If you already use Flickr you can access the Quiet Book Sew Along group here.

If you don’t have a Flickr account it is easy to set up, join the group and add photos. I’ve written out the steps, so you have no excuses – kidding! In reality, I was frustrated the first time I tried to join a Flickr group, so I thought it would only be fair to let you know how if I was going to invite you over!

Step 1: Go to Flickr and create yourself an account.

Step 2: Once you are in, click on the “Communities” menu item. Choose “Search Groups”.

Step 3: Type “Quiet Book Sew Along” into the search bar and press “Search”.

Step 4: Click the small “Join?” text under the Thread Riding Hood “Quiet Book Sew-Along” Group.

Step 5: It will ask you if you really want to join. Click “Join This Group”!

Step 6: You’re In! Now to add Photos… Click the white button that says “+ Add Photos” next to the title.

Step 7: Click “Upload Something Now”.

Step 8: Drag & Drop your photos onto the screen or select “Choose photos and videos” to find them on your computer.

Step 9: Name and caption your photo by clicking on the text.

Step 10: Add your photo to the “Quiet Book Sew-Along” group by clicking “Add to groups” on the left menu bar.

Step 11: Choose “Quiet Book Sew-Along” in your groups list and click the “Done” button at the bottom of the box.

Step 12: You should now have a little Red and the Wolf button under “Groups” indicating the photo will be added to that group.

Step 13: Look at the top right hand side of the screen to find the “Upload Photo” button. Click it to save your photo.

Step 14: Flickr will double-check that you are sure. Click “Upload to Photostream”.

Step 15: You should now be in your main screen with your uploaded photo(s).

Step 16: To get back to the “Quiet Book Sew-Along” group page click “Communities”-”Groups List” on the menu bar.

Step 17: Select the “Quiet Book Sew-Along” group button.

Step 18: Comment and favorite all of the amazing Quiet book page progress!

That’s all there is to it! Hope the little tutorial helped inspire you to share your book. Come on over and join. It’ll take you about 10 minutes but you’ll be using it until the end of November. The amortization of time on that transaction is amazing! Please let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to help.
