  18. Editor’s note • The photograph involving Mr. Kerlee is not easy to view. But we concluded that that one image captured the human tragedy of the accident, the intense rescue effort and the immensity of the log pile. Had Mr. Kerlee died that night, the photo would not have been published. Tragically, he died the next day and our staff was saddened along with our readers. • We take great care with the words and images that The Dallas Morning News portrays each day, particularly those that can evoke strong emotions and disturb some readers. • We do not publish photographs to be sensational or to shock readers. Unfortunately, horrific events happen around the world and locally. Evocative photographs can be appropriate to convey the horror of a tragic event.

  19. News photography • Design issues as a function of page layout • Vertical orientation • Horizontal orientation • DO NOT USE SQUARE PHOTOS • Photos fit within pages • Sometimes photos drive layout • Sometimes layout drives photo selection

  20. Photoshop • “The one essential piece of software” • Create text effects • Manipulate photo files • Prepare photos for Web publication

  24. Sizing • Open an image file • In the menu bar, go to Image>Image Size • At “Document Size,” set the width (inches) according to the column size you will be using in your layout>OK

  25. Cropping and sizing • Choose the crop tool • On the crop options bar, enter width and/or height values • Drag a crop marquee on the part of the image you want to use • Double-click inside the marquee or press Enter/Return • Image>Image Size to see both dimensions
