I do use attributions either on the image itself, at the end of a blog post, or as credits in a video production, to honour the work done by others, whether it’s CC0 or not. I collect the attributions within a storyboard as I produce media or when I download images. I teach others about this persistent practice as I work in digital spaces. I consider this to be an essential digital literacy – default mode.
So, I’ve searched for an image to represent my Ontario Extend experience – one image to describe my participation as an #EastenderExtender. I’m using threads, threading, weaving, looms and colour as the underlying search terms. I started with infinity loop scarves and ended up with a simple ‘open threads’ image found on Flickr.
I applied the attribution tool to collect the necessary information for sharing the image. Attribution: “Open Thread” flickr photo by opensourceway https://flickr.com/photos/opensourceway/6006122716 shared under a Creative Commons (BY-SA) license
But finding just the right ‘one picture’ can take hours.
Finding many, many others that will also work, for other projects, other blogs is usually what happens. Curating your favourite images is another way to keep a collection for future reference.
