Transcript of Searching for Images Wisely and Well

First, let's look at how I can search for images that are okay to use.
To do this, I need to recognize that not all images are the same.
How to cite the images you use correctly
Now, you try it out.
1) Take out your iPad and go to your browser.
2) Use Wikimedia Commons to search for an image of Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital building. Place that image into a Notability doc.
3) Create a citation for that image.
4) We'll share out our responses.
Turn to your partner and answer the following:
1) What goes at the beginning of each citation?
2) Where does the citation go?
3) How can I use the template to help me?
4) What questions do we still have?
Imagine this:

I’ve been assigned a report on the architecture of Argentina. To write this report, I’ll need to use lots of images to support my claims about how the architecture has changed through time.

In addition to being able to write an effective report and cite the references I use in that report, I’ll need to be able to do the following:

1) Search effectively for images that are licensed for reuse.
2) Cite images correctly.
1) I follow the steps on the template to create the citation.

2) I assign the image a figure number (e.g. Fig 1) and write the citation as a caption under the image.

3) If the image is in the domain, I cite it like this: Fig. 2. Public domain.

4) If I only refer to the image once during my paper or presentation, I don't need to include the citation again in my Works Cited. If I do refer to it in different parts of my paper or presentation, I include the citation (just as I wrote in the caption) in my Works Cited.
A blueprint for Searching for and u
ng Images Wisely and Well

There are two ways to do this.
If people are creating a website about their family's travel adventures, they may not want someone else to use pictures that they took. For different reasons, a professional photographer may not want you to use images she took either, since she won't be compensated for the work she's done in taking them. It's important that I choose images licensed for reuse, images that the person who created them gives me permission to use.
There are several ways to search for reusable images. Two work particularly well.
Let's pause and review. Turn to your neighbor and answer the following questions:

1) Why is important to use images that are licensed for reuse?

2) What are two ways to find reusable images?

3) What's the value of using something in the public domain?
I begin by referring to this infographic:
1) Use Unsplash to find an image of buildings in Argentina. Use that image as your second in the Notability doc.
2) Create a citation for that image.
3) We'll share out our responses.
Wrap Up
What did you learn how to do?

Why does it matter?

When will you use
skills next?
Although there are many sites devoted to reusable images and sounds, Wikimedia Commons (commons.wikimedia.org) is one of my favorites because of its ease of use.
What about public domain?
Public domain means you have unlimited permissions.
To practice this, I want everyone to try citing the image you find here: bit.ly/PracticeImage. We'll work together on it.
So what does that citation look like?

The second place I like to go for pictures which is amazing, but has some limitations, is unsplash.com.
This is Unsplash's statement about reuse:

All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.

More precisely, Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service.
All images are public domain (and should be cited accordingly).
The pictures are high quality and often beautiful.

The pictures aren't labeled well, so you aren't sure what you're looking at.
The site is limited--not a lot to choose from.
