Using images in your content, a quick tutorial

Malkazoid ·
Hello! So if you're like me, you're having a field day posting content right now since content drafting got added to the alpha. One of the best favors you can to do to your content is to add eye-catching images. It is insane, the degree to which this helps your content catch people's interest. Lets face it, in this day and age, the written word alone just does not cut it. If you're posting content without any images, I'm going to go ahead and say it - you're failing. The good news, this is...

Unclear labels for Tribunal votes

Vico Biscotti ·
Votes from Tribunal members, in the appeal, are labeled "Voted for" or "Voted against", but it's unclear if it's a "voted for rejecting the niche" (as it's intuitive, because they're voting the appeal) or "voted for keeping the niche" (as it actually is). I think "Voting for the appeal" and "Voted against the appeal" (switching columns, in this case) would be clearer captions.

Here's another (very underutilized) source of images. Work created by government employees, under US law, is not entitled to domestic copyright protection. If you go to the websites of most government agencies and dig around a little, you'll usually find a library of free images. I've used images from the USDA, FDA, and of course NASA.

Just be careful not to use any image you find on a government website. Many of them use stock images from Getty and other paid photo sources to accompany articles. (I had a client run into issues because of that. Getty loves to send out copyright violation notices with fines that threaten legal action if you don't pay.) It's pretty clear which images are generated by NASA, but use some due diligence to determine the source of images used on other government agency websites!

Yes, good point. What I'm talking about is specific image repositories that each agency makes available.

Here is another FREE resource for images with proper licensing: Pexels.com https://www.pexels.com/ There are also several more image sites and some sites offering video clips too.

Wikimedia Commons is great for finding public domain images. And if they get owners, I know that a Free Stock Photos niche was approved, as was my Creative Commons Non-Commercial with Attribution niche, so they may be good sources for free images once beta goeslive. ;-)

Thanks for the tips and for shouting out Ecosia, which I use personally.

Good sources here! I believe someone shared the HOW to add an image to a post over the weekend, but can't find that. @Christina Gleason was that you? I just pulled down my post to see where to click to add an image; was not able to find that. Any help? Thank you!

David, the 'insert image' tool is not working (tried 3x); the bullet function reduced the font to about 10 pts which doesn't match the rest of the piece; the H1 header font doesn't match the title (I really like the H1 header font more than the title anyway.) Thought I'd share these minor issues with you IRL. Tell me if this is not the right forum for that, and I can share with where you point me. Thank you!

Jayme are you on a phone, pc, or mac? Which browser? And what does "not working" mean? are you getting an error? Does anything happen at all? It's working here, which is why I have to ask a lot of questions, to see if I can reproduce the issue and pass it on to the devs. The bullet function has already been reported and is being fixed. Good catch on that. Not sure about the H1 header, will check.

I'm on Firefox, PC and it may be my issue locally. Let me clear cache, try again and also look at this on Chrome before we escalate. The image begins to load, I see the progress and then when it's 100% it says "error, please try again." I'll do some troubleshooting here, too, and report back.

@David Dreezer I just loaded up Chrome and the same issue occurred: image showed up, loaded to 100% and then robot with error showed up on page saying could not load image.

Ok, when you get the robot it usually has a code number on the page. Can you copy that for me then put in a ticket and paste in the code? Or take a screen shot? But please let's do a ticket so I can share it with the devs and not cloud up this forum topic. Thanks!
