After removing the “View Image”, Google is now adding another change to the image search in an attempt to protect creators’ copyright. Starting today, Google will start adding Creator and Credit metadata within the images that appear via Image Search. And in the following weeks, the Copyright Notice will appear with alongside images as well.
Earlier we posted about an image that Canon Italia had shared to their Facebook page and Instagram. An image not only shot on a camera that wasn’t a Canon (it was a Fuji X-T1), but a composite based on a stolen photograph created by Elia Locardi. At least, that’s the way that anybody with a pair of eyes sees it.
Canon Italia, though, seems to think that it’s a similar but entirely different image that wasn’t even shot at the same time of year. And that it was shot with a Canon 1D Mark IV. Well, that’s what their response on Facebook says, anyway.
Well, this is awkward. Canon has recently posted an image on a few of their social media accounts. The first thing to notice is that they didn’t give credits to the photographer in either of the posts. But guys from FStoppers discovered more. First, the image is a composite. And second, one of the photos used for it was actually shot on a Fujifilm X-T1.
Before we begin, I must start this piece off by saying that I’m referring specifically to collaborations on social media/magazines, where the aim is to grow your fanbase/audiences, when appropriate, and all parties agree on written credit.
Hello guys and girls! *waves* welcome back to another blog post! I have to warn you up front that this one is somewhat of a baby megalodon in size, but don’t worry! There are pictures :D
I’ve noticed over the last few years that retouchers are one of the rarest things to see in the credit list of a team. So I wanted to investigate further and start looking at why this may or may not happen and if it does happen to you (as a retoucher), what you could potentially do about it.
This is definitely from my own experience and may not reflect other people’s, though I do believe this to be quite commonplace, more so if an agreement was not in place.
Even since Ferris Bueller, the post-credit scene has become something that viewers have looked forward to from many movies. Recently, it’s commonly used (especially by Marvel) to tease a potential sequel or follow up movie. But to be able to watch them without waiting for them to appear on YouTube, you have to sit through all the credits. These credits list hundreds of names, but what do they all do? And what does “Best Boy” actually mean?
This video from John Hess at Filmmaker IQ is here to demystify them. It’s a very comprehensive breakdown of who does what and where everybody sits in the hierarchy. He explains the overall structure, as well as the different regulations governing how certain sections must laid out. John also talks about some of the differences between the credits in movies and TV shows.
