I suffer from something called Ménière’s disease—don’t worry, you cannot get it from reading my blog. The symptoms of Ménière’s include hearing loss, tinnitus (a constant ringing sound), and vertigo. There are many medical theories about its cause: too much salt, caffeine, or alcohol in one’s diet, too much stress, and allergies. Thus, I’ve worked …

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 9, 2017 5:01 AM
What was once a web filled with code and scrolling text, the Internet is now the world’s largest conglomerate of images. And as visual content continues to rule, the number of images available online will only grow. But just because you can Google an image — and technically copy or save it — doesn’t mean the web is a free-for-all of visual data. Photographers and designers need to put food on the table. If every online image was available for free, there would be a lot more starving artists. Fortunately for them, copyrights apply in cyberspace just as in print. And anyone using an image without appropriate rights and permissions can find themselves in plenty of hot water. Understanding the ins and outs of image licensing and usage can save digital marketers, web designers and other content curators from unnecessary penalties, ranging from cease and desist notices to lawsuits and financial demands. Want to be sure you properly use images in your online content? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just follow our five simple steps, and you just might save yourself a load of legal trouble.

PowerPoint as a basic image editor 

"Love it, hate it, want to ignore it – PowerPoint is part of many people’s working and academic lives. But it’s not all bullet points, crappy clip art and watermarked images of authors who forget good digital citizenship. PowerPoint can also be used as a simple image creator and editor."

Design System Fundamentals - Hack Design

Design systems create a bridge between designers and developers. They describe the rules, constraints, and principles of your company’s design language. Design systems aren't exactly new. If you've ever visited New York City, there's a good chance you've benefited from the subway design system to navigate around—officially named the New York Transit Authority graphic standards manual, designed by the infamous Massimo Vignelli. Design systems don't just provide brand guidelines, they provide a way to consistently implement functional design. In today's incarnation of design systems, it's expected that they provide one source of truth for code, along with documentation and design resources. For teams building digital products, design systems can improve workflow efficiency and enable teams to deliver a better experience to customers.

LearnHack #5: 7 secret resources for images in e-learning courses

LearnHack #5: 7 secret resources for images in e-learning courses | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

The Internet is full of stock photos, and it’s never been easier finding a good-looking image that goes well with the topic of your learning content.

However, there’s a huge leap from good to great. Content deserves great images. If you’re a bit picky (and here’s why you should be), searching for a perfect image can easily take you more time than writing the content itself (read about writing e-learning content in our LearnHack #3). On top of that, the best images are usually copyrighted or at the very least come with a price tag.

Fortunately, there are some websites that are packed with high-quality creative photos that can be used free of charge.

Before you rush to the list below, don’t forget to bookmark this page; sooner or later it will prove to have been a great—not just good—idea.
