About that Second Slide

You may have noticed that the second slide (seen above) in this mornings presentation contained title and photographer information for the photo used in the background of the rest of the presentation . I thought I would explain a little about that here. Most of the time we use actual photographs for the background of our slides. Early on, I purchased photos from istockphoto.com. The problem is that prices at istockphoto.com keep going up. I found a partial solution in that there are many excellent pictures on the popular photo sharing site, flickr.com. These pictures are free and many are licensed for use under a Creative Commons license of the same kind that we use for the church website and this blog. One of the conditions of use is that credit is given to the photographer. This second slide (after the slide with our logo, mission statement, and BHAG) is an attempt to do just that.
