  • Your Caption Here: How-to Manipulate Images Without Photoshop

    by Jessica Hagy, Austin Kleon, Drew Dernavich, Ross Nover and Maris Kreizman

    We all know how easy it is to doctor an image with Photoshop, but there's an even easier and low-tech way to alter an image's meaning: just change the caption. It turns out that pictures can say whatever we want them to say, provided we use the right words. In this session, we'll get the lowdown from a panel of bloggers and cartoonists who have elevated captioning to a brilliant, often hilarious art form. We'll learn why the old writing adage "Show don't tell" is useless, and how a picture might be worth a thousand words, but when it's paired with a caption that deepens, expands, or redefines its meaning, it can be worth a million.

    At 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Tuesday 15th March
