HPU: Picture Library?

It may not be. I haven't seen whether there's any conditions on use attached to photos from the BBC Picture Library. I just wanted to be clear before you write a help page which includes these. The existing h2g2 picture library includes artist-designed graphics only (I think).

Ah, I see. Maybe just include the photos by the Photographers, then?

I think that is because it's not been updated for years, and the photos only started much later than the blobs.

Mala, I guess a link to the <./photographers</.> would take care of that.

Though once I update the artists' homepage, I hope more people will join - a lot are scared off by the technical stuff, but most of it's no longer needed!

Basically, Icy, the pictures are there on h2g2. I could use them on any page I wanted to without needing any extra permission from the BBC, so I don't see why they couldn't be on a Help Page. I doubt if it will be an issue; if they can appear an an unofficial page I make in ten seconds time, they can surely appear on an official Help Page.

Given Alex's comments at post 20, though, I'm going to let this idea lie for a while; at least until HPU is completed. There's no point splitting anyone's time between the two, and Alex's project is far more important.

Thanks, Alex, I'd forgotten about this thread! smiley - doh

I'm only doing Artist blobs for the moment, because I can't tell which photos are which. (They're not consistently credited...)

I'll let the Photographers sort out the photos smiley - ok

And the Post ones can wait, too, for now.

Are you making a note of which ones aren't credited?

With the artist blobs, yes.

With the photographs, no, because I have no way of knowing which are uncredited Photographers' and which are BBC stock photos. The artist blobs generally don't appear in the Photographers' hall of fame, so I'm going through the FP archives to find them...
