Flowchart: Figure Out Which CC License To Use

Flowchart: Figure Out Which CC License To Use
Creative Commons is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 that, over the years, has released a set of licenses that enable creative types to share their work with others. The content creator allows others to use their work, just as long as the users follow the guidelines set forth in that particular license. It’s a “some rights reserved” system rather than an “all rights reserved system.” In the photographic community, some aren’t fond of CC licensing while others are downright prolific about it. There are four parts to a CC license, three of which you can choose to include or leave out. Here’s the actual PDF to walk you through picking yours: As you can see, No Derivatives requires that the user not alter your original in any way, Non-Commercial stipulates that the image cannot be used to make money, and Share Alike requires that any resulting “remix” of the content be shared via the same licensing terms.

How To Add & Remove Watermarks, Text, Or Logos Today, we’ll take a look at how to quickly add complex watermarks to hundreds of images at once—and some devious ways to remove these watermarks from other people’s images. Is it wrong do this? Keep reading and decide for yourself. Lots of professional artists and photographers use watermarks to make sample photographs unusable by casual downloaders. For you aspiring artists, you can create watermarks and logos either for protection or for promotion, and add them to hundreds (or even thousands) of images in seconds with these simple methods. While this can give you the feeling of some protection, it’s important to understand just how easy it can be to remove a watermark with Photoshop (or other graphics software). Making A Big Job Much Easier With Automation When preparing a large dump of files that need watermarks, it can seem daunting to think about individually editing all those hundreds of photographs at once. Our goal is to watermark a set of about 300 photographs with this logo.

MindMiester: Mind Mapping Software - Create Mind Maps online Hiring on Craigslist without flooding your email inbox My startup saved 40+ hours with a DIY recruiting tool. Learn how we did it. Craigslist is an invaluable and underutilized resource for startups. We’ve posted several jobs there, ranging from part-time content writers to user study participants. I’ve been consistently surprised by the quantity and immediacy of the responses, but daunted by the task of screening through them. Reading through responses with varying formats and content is a very messy and haphazard process, and it’s difficult to collaborate with other people. Traditional recruiting systems are overkill for this sort of task. In less time than we would have spent on the phone listening to a sales pitch, we made a DIY applicant tracking system using our own newly-released Airtable Forms feature that met our needs perfectly. Here’s how we did it. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. We could chat and collaborate in the context of each job applicant, making it easy to coordinate followups. And that’s it! Here’s how to do it yourself
