Directions for Printing (Read this while you wait for the page to load).

You have 2 options.

1. You can simply print this webpage, fast and easy. The quality of the print image won't be very good, however, as the images you see on this website are optimized for viewing on a monitor (72 dpi) and print images need to start at 200 or 250 dpi. Those images, however are big (about 2 MB each) and that slows download time.

2. To download a better quality image for printing, right click on the filename in the area to the right. In the pop-up box, select Save As... and save to your hard drive where you can find it again. (I recommend saving all files you create under "My Documents.") Then open a word processor and insert the images from your file. Print from within the word processor.

If you left clicked and got the image in its own browser window, it will appear to be huge! and it will print huge from the browser. You can use the back button to return to this page or you can position your mouse over the image, right click and select "Save Image As..." from the pop-up box. Then save to your hard drive as above.

Image Lesson:

These are saved in the jpg format, which is better for photos. It is, however, what is known as a "lossy" compression format. That means that with each "Save" the image degrades a bit. (This happens because the system "averages" the pixels to achieve compression, so each save computes a new average.) As a consequence, try to minimize the number of times you save the file. You can open and look at it. And you can come back to the original here and resave. Think of it like making copies of a video-- It is better to return to the original than to make copies of copies of copies.

Copyright Lesson:

Now that you know how to save images from websites, you need to know how to do so legally. Copyright law declares that images are as much property as text. You need permission to make copies of images, just as you would to use text. (With an image, you are more likely to use the entire image which makes the act of copying without permission more severe, just as using the entire text without permission would be more serious than excerpting a paragraph.)

(Aside: Those who participated in the New Faculty bus trip 2000 and their friends and family have my permission to copy and reproduce these images for personal purposes).

Ownership rests in the creator in most circumstances. Some websites will state that they give permission for certain purposes. By the way, copyright law includes derivative works such as taking an image and distorting it. It regards Web publication as distribution which is more likely to get you in difficulty. (Notice what is happening to music sites). Educators have a bit of leeway if the material is not freely available. (Use a password so only students can get to it).

A good article about intellectual property on-line is An Intellectual Property Law Primer for Multimedia and Web Developers by J.Dianne Brinson & Mark F. Radcliffe ( WKU's Intellectual Property policy can be found at:

Okay, the images should all be loaded by now, enjoy.
