3. Select type of image:

  • Type: The category of the image.
  • Graphic: Used for any work from the Art Department that uses outside assets; i.e., is not fully illustrated
  • Illustration: Used for any work by The Art Department or another illustrator that is fully self-generated.
  • Image: Catch-all for anything not described elsewhere. Should be used rarely.
  • Photo: Photograph taken by a person and not manipulated
  • Screenshot: Screenshots should only be used if you’re reviewing or otherwise editorializing an old TV/movie/game. You must take the screenshot yourself. Do not get one off Google Images. Exceptions must go through your EIC before publishing. In most cases, if you’re indicating a screenshot, just the name of the show or movie is fine. e.g., “Screenshot: Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” not “Screenshot: Full Frontal With Samantha Bee(YouTube).”
