FROM THE EDITOR
returned from an international workshop in Gothenburg
in Sweden I have been reminded about the true meaning of
'photography'- writing with light. As the winter was
still over Sweden the weather was unusual grey and dull, cold
and wet. Not a big inspiration for a photographer or any visitor.
previous experience in Sweden I know what Gothenburg and
in fact the whole west coast of Sweden could be experienced
intimate nature and culture. Later I will go back to capture
atmosphere of the northern charming summer with the long
evenings near the sea.
this trip I had to be happy with some indoor shots and the
enjoyment of the Swedish hospitality and long cultural heritage.
photography we talk about revealing reality, but without an
esthetic quality of each picture it will end just as a digital
file, or a piece of film. Many of us have thought that dull
weather is a part of this reality to reveal and with its own
esthetic potential. But when it comes to the commercial part
using pictures such shots have a short walk on earth.
editors love blue skies and sunshine pictures. If the sun
has gone and the sky has turned grey you have to apply your
tricks to keep the picture editor happy.
many earlier issues of SPN I have highlighted the fact that
online pictures are fine to see, when a visitor IS on the

ARTICLE SUBMISSION SITES: WHY CAN'T I USE PICTURES?
been writing articles and stories on the Internet for a
couple of years now and I’ve come to realize that there’s
something very wrong with current article submission sites.
If you write articles for Newspapers or magazines you will
have noticed that most of the stories have photographs or
pictures accompanying the text.
adds a whole dimension to the story, piquing interest
in the words that may have otherwise been skimmed over
and ignored as just being another of an infinite number
valuable information could be lost to our
consciousness, and to our community on the Internet.
Pictures have been used in the ‘paper’ for decades,
if not centuries. We’ve come to expect an exciting
aesthetic presence when something new and interesting is
presented to society. So, why is it that this area of the
modern medium for the written word doesn’t allow images?
company submits my articles to over one hundred article
repository sites around the Internet. Recently I started to
work in a collaborative effort with a graphic designer who
up both comics and Flash animations to go with the stories.
It’s remarkable to say that only a fifth of the sites
accept an image with the piece, while only a twentieth would
allow the Flash animation to be used. This could be considered
as an outrage. Personally, I have to admit that I simply judge
it as a sign that the World Wide Web is in many ways still
infant, or better yet, an unborn pregnancy.
do the article submission sites have a problem with having
images in the text? Could it be that they worry too much about
the cost of added disc-space and bandwidth needed to upload
pictures? I don’t know but if you are reading this I
that if you want people to come and visit your site repeatedly,
you have to make it worthwhile. Content is the most important
aspect of the Internet, but people do get tired of looking
boring pages filled with only text. Imagine buying a magazine
these days that only has words, photos and pictures having
deleted for the sake of experiment. No one would want it,
half the time it’s the pictures that you’re searching
for in the
first place, or they’re what inspire you to read a specific
while ignoring others.
you are a webmaster of an article submission site, please
and leave a comment so that I can know
why when it comes to publishing my works, we are still living
the ‘ancient’ past.
