This post is part of our series on using photos on blogs:
- The first post was about where to get free photosÂ for Â your blog.
- Next, we talked about stock photography and why we decided to go with Big Stock Photo for this site.
- We also talked about how critical thinking images is an important media literacy skill that students need to develop. Just because a website or an advertisement shows happy people, it doesn’t necessarily mean that those people use the product mentioned on the website. (Heck, our site talks about Dragon NaturallySpeaking and shows images of children using headsets and laptops but our photos come from Big Stock Photo. For privacy reasons, they’re not students that we personally work with.)
Today will be talking about some internet tools that you can use to figure out who is that girl / person. That way, you can figure out whether the images used on a website are paid models, or real people. Teachers can find their own examples of websites that use stock photography (to teach critical thinking skills when viewing images on websites.)
- Using Google Goggles to figure out who is that girl / guy / person
- Using Google Image Search to figure out who is that girl / guy / person.
- What about student/teacher privacy? Who is that girl? Can you search people based on a photo of them?
