  • So here is the part where we talk about some legal aspects of your photos plus what I’m calling creatingadded value for your photos
  • If you are going to use social media then, of course, there is going to be a Social Media Use Policy. Here is the UK website that houses our policies and guidelines
  • You should become very familiar with this webpage and the resources on it
  • This is the way the policy starts out. The italic and highlight are mine. This is a reminder that we are representatives of the university (pretty much all the time)
  • I want to take a quick look at three areas of working with your photos to get them ready for launching
  • The Social Media Use Policy says…be nice; don’t post any junk
  • AND for the people you can recognize in your photo you need to have written permission to use their image…our ever present media release form which you can find on the Ag Photo Library website will be of use to you here
  • It’s technology versus ethics. The bottom line is, you don’t want to do anything to jeopardize the integrity of the photo
  • So how much can you change the image? matt and I think that you should stick with the basics: fix the exposure if you need to, do some sharpening, and go ahead and crop to get rid of any dead space and help focus the attention on the action in the photograph. And that’s pretty much it. So does that make sense?
  • Metadata is any information that helps to describe the content or characteristics of a file. There’s already information embedded in your photo image that will tell me what camera captured that image, what the settings on the camera were when it made the exposure and more. Now you want to add some additional information that will make it easier for you and others to locate and see your images later
  • The who, what, when and where about the image. So here is how it works
  • A photograph captured recently. Anybody know who is speaking here? Laura Knoth who is…? The Exec. Dir. Of the Ky Corn growers Assoc. Event? Annual meeting of the KyCGA When? January 21 of this year and Where? At the University Plaza Holiday Inn in Bowling Green, Kentucky
  • OK so here is the information we have (the metadata that will help us locate this image later) and that looks like
  • This as our caption for this image
  • And shows up in our Ag Photo Library looking like this. Notice the caption above the photo…and the tags (we call them keywords here) at the left of the photo. But wait, there’s more…
  • It also looks like this up on Flickr. Put there by the Ky Corn growers association.
  • Captions are searchable information
  • And so are tags, the second way to add information to your photos. Remember, our goal is to tell the extension story. We are telling everybody this is what we are doing in extension. I look at using our photos as an ongoing Report to the People. You should always have these first three tags in all of your images. We want people to find us.
  • In Summary:
  • Now I’m going to turn it back over to Matt to talk about where we want to send all our well prepared images…to Flickr
