    O, need some help. I am looking to make one of those posters you see on FB that has a name and then a couple of pictures with captions like: What my mom thinks I do. and What my Friends think I do. You all know the ones. Well I want to make one for Kuk Sool! I have some ideas but want to see what you all come up with.
    So help a Brother Out! Send me you thoughts and Pictures!:evil:

    1) I thought posters like these were supposed to show a variety of PoVs. Its seems like all 4 of the KS photos can be interchangeably used with any other caption. There is no real "punchline" anywhere.

    2) Using capitalization everywhere, along with exclamation points everywhere diminishes the impact of the words. Use normal lettering and punctuation...until you get to the punchline, where you can use the capitalization/exclamation for fuller effect.

    3) Unless you took these photos yourself and unless you have expressed permission from the folks in the photos or the association, I'd say it's not fair game for a poster. It's probably better to use "free-use" photos or originals if you intend to reproduce anything for the future.

    Thanks VM, As I said it is a draft and I am looking for ideas. I will keep your thoughts in mind. The Punch line is there is none. The Truth is sometimes better. If you look at "What Other Martial Artists Think" Kuk Sool has always been looked at of being a little heavy on the bowing / Respect issues. "The Public" thinks all Martial Art Schools just teach kids. "What my friends think" is a good reputation of the serious side of self defense. "YouTube" shows the demo side of Kuk Sool. So really I kind of like it.

    I am looking now for more ideas than corrections.

    And once again since I am not making any money from this, public domain pictures (which when you put them on the internet they become) can be used.

    But thank you for your comments. :evil:

    Not true, I'm afraid - images on the Internet are not public domain. They may be free to use if the copyright owner has released them under a Creative Commons license, but otherwise they are still copyrighted just like music, videos and text.

    100% incorrect. Just because a photo is online does not automatically make it public domain, and whether you make money or not from it has nothing to do with the legality of using it unless the copyright owner has specifically said it can be used for non commercial use.

    Only if the item is COPYRIGHTED! If the owner of the image copyrights something it is true. But if it is not then game on. Poor mans copyrights have been shot down in numerous court cases. So it is a common practice that if it is copyrighted it will have either have a note stating such and/or a watermark. Just taking a photo and putting it on the net does not make it copyrighted.

    Look at post #2 and #6 how many copyrighted images are on there? Is the overall image copyrighted?

    Photographers take great lengths to make sure there images are protected. The ones I use are not copyrighted and I have never know them to be.

    The images I have used, I see as Public domain and not copyrighted.

    Sorry, but you are still completely wrong. An image is copyrighted as soon as its created, period. You do not have to register a copyright for one to exist.

    Continue to steal images if you want, but just because you want something to be public domain does not make it true.
