Guidelines on sending materials for the OLOF Web Site

The Our Lady Of Fatima.org Web Site is available to all Parishioners. The space is virtually unlimited and there is no cost other than a little effort to publish your material. Just Email your file to the Webmaster. Heads of organizations/committees are particularly invited to furnish their Mission Statements and publish their activities on our Web. The best way of getting material posted onto the OLOF Web  is to send the information and/or images, in a timely manner, to the Webmaster as an Email attachment, in the original format in which it was created.(A convenient, correct Email link is at the bottom of the Menu on the left side of the Home Page In most cases this would be MS WORD (as editable text - (not a scanned image), MS Publisher or full size JPEGs or TIFFs. Times Roman 12 point fonts are preferred. Avoid sending MS HTML or RTF or embedding anything in the Email.

Photographs should be submitted to the Webmaster on an “OLOF Web Exclusive” basis. In this context “Exclusive” means that until the pictures go up on the Web they will not, or have not been, shared with other persons or entities by CC, BCC, print or board-posting. When shooting for the OLOF Web, landscape orientation is preferred! Our browsers are landscape, our monitors are landscape and even our cameras are landscape! Portrait orientation is mainly for Tall Trees, Tall buildings and single heads. The natural inclination of the human eye is to scan horizontally. Regarding People Photos, unposed, candid shots of folks actually doing something are the most natural and interesting.

Images  may be Emailed in batches of up to 7 MB per Email.  Large batches should be burned to CD and placed in the OLOF Web, mail slot at the Fatima Center.

It is hoped that the above hints will smooth and expedite getting your material on the OLOF Web. The Webmster will gladly answer any questions or suggestions you may have.

FAQ Page --- Frequently Asked Questions Page

Q
: What is the best resolution with which to view the OLOF Web?.
A: 1024 pixels wide is good and 1152 or 1920 px are excellent.
800 x 600 is too low and is likely to truncate OLOF and other web page(s), See next Answer to change your monitor resolution. The OLOF home page and most other pages are designed to be viewed with a monitor set in the range of 1024 to 1920 px wide.
 
Q: How do I determine and/or change my monitor screen resolution?.
A: RIGHT click on your desk top IE on your wall paper or other clear area which is free of activity. Select "settings". Your resolution will be displayed and can be changed. After changing up to 1024 you may find the screen print size looking a little smaller. You can improve that by clicking on the "appearance" tab (at the top next to the "Settings" tab) and then in the "Font Size" box selecting "Large" and then "apply"
 
Q: Why is the right hand panel Empty? Could it not be used for something useful?
A: The page is designed to exactly fill the screen of a monitor that is set to the most common resolution of 1024 pixels. The right hand frame is expandable and programmed to fill the extra space created when viewing the page at resolutions greater than 1024 px. This fills the panel with a pleasant background which somewhat balances the left menu frame. Anything placed in this area will likely be randomly truncated on different monitors.
 
Q: I am curious to know if any other countries check in to the OLOF Site
 
A: Shown below is a fairly typical report.

"What am I allowed to photograph"
Who "owns" the photograph?
 
http://www.ehow.com/facts_5297841_photography-copyright-laws.html
 

    Copyright

  1. The U.S. Constitution and the Federal Copyright Act protect the original works of "authors." The "author" is the copyright owner, and has exclusive rights to make copies of his work, create other works based on the original, display or perform the work in public and make copies of the work for sale, lease, rent or lending.

    Photo Copyright Ownership

  2. The "author" is the person who took the photo; the owner is the person who snapped the shutter. If a photographer takes a photo of you, that photographer owns the copyright of the photo. A photographer who is employed by a studio--or even newspapers--is not usually considered the "author," the employer is.

    Copyright Registration

  3. Registration is not required for copyright protection. There is a $20 fee as of 2009 and forms that need to be filled out in order to register a copyright, which makes it a pricey and time-consuming for a photographer to register thousands of photos. Instead, a photographer may chose to register just his portfolio photographs.

    Web Photos

  4. Copyright infringement, the unauthorized use of copyrighted work, includes photos on the Web, as well as in print. Even if you do not see a copyright symbol, you should suspect that it probably is protected and not available for public use. It is recommended that photographers use copyright watermarks or include a copyright symbol to protect their images that appear on the Web.

    Idea Copyright

  5. An artist's work is their own. There are more than a half-million images of the Golden Gate Bridge on Flickr, but each is unique to a specific photographer. It is possible for someone to try to recreate a more stylized or studio shot that is truly an original concept, but the infringement can be challenged, and it would be up to a court to decide on the degree of similarity between the works.

http://www.andrewkantor.com/useful/Legal-Rights-of-Photographers.pdf
 
Full reading of all three links above will make you an expert on Photographers "Rights" and on "Who owns a photograph. The short answers are:

a) The person who presses the shutter button is the owner. (unless there is a contract to the contrary)
You may not "lift" a photo off of a Web Site and show it on another site or publish it in any form.. However this is done all  the time and common decency and etiquette require that you at least ask permission and give credit to the owner.
 
b) You can legally photograph almost anything you see in a public place or on publicly accessible private property.. (but there are many exceptions including invasion of privacy and libel considerations)

SPAM. What is it and How To Minimize It?
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_spam

 

http://www.mcafee.com/us/threat_center/anti_spam/spam_tips.html

http://www.tinhat.com/email/read_email_headers.html


To go broader and deeper:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=what+is+pam&aq=f&aqi=l1g10&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=CzmSLQrGoTK_KLouEh
QSxtLkwAAAAqgQFT9CdLrU

 

The short answer:
You get spam because you have exposed your unencoded, unobfusticated Email address on a web site, chat room, or other Web Vehicle.
Web crawler, (AKA Bots = Robots) software is constantly scanning the entire Internet for addresses to harvest and sell to spammers.
What can you do?

Change your address -- this is a rather draconian measure to be sure.
If you have an alias ----change it.
Expand the header if you can and forward the Spam to Spam@uce.gov  See third link on how to do this.
Encode your address in Javascript*** or make it into an image or add stuff that humans will recognize.
In other than the latest versions of Outlook and Outlook Express, do not have the preview pane open.
It is open by default. Make the default closed.
Do not open any unrecognized attachments or links.
Use a spam filter but note that they are sometimes unreliable and cause loss of genuine mail. ISPs like Charter offer spam filtering.
There is a wealth of other tips in the second link above.

NOTE: Getting spam has nothing to do with what ISP, server, or equipment you are using. It is all a matter of guarding your Email Address.

*** All OLOF Web Email addresses are Javascript encoded.
