|Library Talks: Free, Safe and Legal--Using Images on and off the Web|
Event Type: Continuing Education|
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 11:30 AM
Finding online images to use is a breeze… or is it? While a quick web search for photos or clip art may seem easy enough, there are many pitfalls an informed library professional must know to avoid. Copyright, file type, file size, and how to use images online and in print are all considerations to navigate as you create eye-catching and informative communications.
If you’d like to become more efficient and competent with your use of images at work, you are invited to join Sharon Barnes, SCKLS technology consultant, for this valuable and hands-on session. Discover tools and resources to find and use images on your library website, social media posts and printed materials. Review copyright laws as they apply to images to build confidence that you are using them correctly and legally. Practice searching, selecting and inserting or embedding images for use online and in print.
In this engaging session, you will learn to:
• Understand copyright basics
• Use search techniques and resources to select effective images
• Choose appropriate image file type and resolution for a specific use
• Insert and arrange images in documents for print
• Upload or embed images in WordPress and set display options
Are you responsible for producing print or online promotional documents for your library? Do you edit your library's website? Do you manage social media posts for your library? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you won’t want to miss this valuable and relevant training. Join us!
