Communicating with Images on Blogs

This discussion will focus on improving images (illustration, photography, data viz) on blogs. Expanding on a session from SCIO09, you need not have attended the earlier session. In this session we will discuss and share:
--Why use images on your blog? What makes an image effective at communicating an idea?
--Where to find images (open-source, artists for hire; share your favourite places to find images)
--An overview of copyright and Creative Commons Licences and proper image credits (Note: "Image by Wikipedia" is um, not right)
--How to effectively re-size images so they don't cause your blog to load s l o w l y.
--Quick tutorial using free software (Gimp) Picnik? to show how to reduce image size.
