ISMC Uses Images in Innumerable Wonderful Ways|
In this example, the user wants a background for his computer desktop. The image on the left serves this purpose better. Why? It shows the insect in its natural context. The impression the viewer gets is that the insect is surveying its surroundings. The image evokes thoughts of purposefulness and of being outside in the sun, amongst the flowers. On the right only the insect itself is presented. This second image is suited to show the general form of the insect. It is good for a field guide or book. The point is once images are edited they lose their ability to be used to tell its different stories.
