Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are these images in the public domain?
Q. Do I need to include a credit line if I publish an image?
A. Yes, the credit line should read "NPS Photo" or "NPS Photo by (photographers name)".
Q. Why are the images so big? They are much larger than the
viewing area on my monitor.
Q. What size are the images?
Q. Why are some topics very well covered while others are missing altogether?
A. We currently have about 12,000 of our 19,000 images scanned. Rather than have you wait until the entire file is scanned, we decided to place the incomplete file online. Other major subject areas will be included in future versions of the slide file.
Q. How do I save an image to my hard drive if I am using Netscape Navigator?
A. To save an image to your hard drive, click on the thumbnail to load the full-sized image. Right-click on the image when it is fully loaded. Select "Save Image as.." from the pop-up menu. Name the image and place it in the desired folder on your computer. (Instructions for saving images in MS Internet Explorer are on every navigation page in the digital slide file.)
