Here is a guide to posting your photo galleries.
Is there a consistent schedule of photo galleries we should follow each week? While consistent photo galleries from events and reader involvement callouts (such as Halloween photos) have great page-view potential, newspapers can find consistency through a variety of themed galleries.
Monday Best photos from weekend news and sporting events
Tuesday Best reader-submitted photos of the week (check-passing, education and other submitted photos)
Wednesday Photos from one event covered Monday or Tuesday
Thursday Best sports photos of the week
Friday Best news photos of the week
How many photos should be in each photo gallery? There should be a minimum of five photos. There is no maximum, but make sure you do not duplicate. Click here to find out how to post photo galleries.
Do all photographs need cutlines? Yes. And all cutlines should be full sentences. Full names and titles should be included in cutlines.
Where should photo galleries go? There should be a tab or section on your homepage where all photo galleries can be found. All photo galleries should be published on the new template to the new photo gallery section.
How can we sell our photographs? All newspapers should have a My Capture account. When newspapers are on the new template, there is a function that will allow all photos published in Zope to include a “Purchase this photo” link that allows users to buy the photo through My Capture. Submit a ticket to ZenDesk if My Capture isn’t set up on your site. Reader-submitted photos should not be sold through My Capture.
