I made these gold elements and the alphabet in photoshop before I read the word art thread concerning copyright issues. Now I'm completely confused. To font or not to font.......
I work at our local high school, where we insist that students adhere to very strict guidelines in citing all information and pictures they use for assignments. I would gladly insert an MLA or APA format works cited page with any of my submissions, but I've done just the opposite of what I teach the students. I require that they at least write down all of the vital information while they're still on the site they're using rather than go back later and try to find it, but I didn't do that. I have no idea which fonts, layers, etc. came from which sites. Throughout the last few weeks, I've googled and searched about.com for free photoshop downloads and followed their links to dozens and dozens of sites. I'm usually installing files while I cook supper, going back and forth between the stove and the computer. Bad role model!!!!!
About the most I can tell you is that the font used for the gold alphabet is called Partridge and the layer styles and shapes were probably from a link on about.com, but I'm not even positive about that.
If the copyright police show up at my door today, maybe they'll take me to a copyright cell that's quiet where I can catch up on sleep. Oooooooh, someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and laundry would be a fit and just punishment, too! And don't prisoners have cable television?
Seriously, I think we're all very good people to be concerned about this. I just read a news story about a man who put his one year-old daughter out in the snow because she woke up early on a Saturday morning and wouldn't go back to sleep. She froze to death. My heart is breaking, and I can't help but compare his character to that of a group of people who are trying so hard to follow the letter of the law in sharing artwork with each other.
Thanks for being such decent, caring human beings!!!!!
