Use Appropriate Images and Music Legally!
Most pictures and music are protected by a copyright, meaning the original author wants to be able to control how their creations are used publicly. If an image or music is copyright protected, you must obtain permission from the original artist to use their work in your project.
***According to Fair Use, you must CITE THE SOURCE for any works you did not create yourself. Many of the sites will tell you how to do so for media used from their site. In most cases:
- Images - display "(c) Author, Publication Date" near the bottom of the image
- Audio/Sound - display "(c) Title, Author" on the screen sometime while the audio is playing

Want to include text?
You can create a slide in PowerPoint, type in your text, and save the slide as a .JPG file. You can then insert this image file into your PhotoStory.
**Remember: Don't type more than about one sentence per slide. Also increase the font size to cover most of the slide.
