The Copyright Symbol

At a meeting, some of you were asking how to get the © symbol to appear in text…

(On a PC) hold down ‘alt’ and tap 0169 on your numeric keypad
(On a Mac) Hold down ‘alt’ at the same time as pressing ‘g’

Crawling through mud

It can be worth asking newspapers if they are interested in your images

If you have images you are particularly pleased with, it can be worth approaching your local newspaper to see if they are interested in using them.

One of our members, Dave,  offered pictures of an event to the Ashbourne News Telegraph and they were used in a double-page centre-spread!

Generally, you should approach the paper’s picture editor to see what their requirements are and, if you are going to an event, speak to them first so they can give you an idea what sort of images they’d like to receive.
