The Value of a Picture

I am a cutline and you have to put me under an image.

Why is this picture so big? Well, it’s not because of the photo. It’s because of the caption — or lack thereof.

When you’re teaching high school students how to publish a newspaper, you sometimes provide a template, so they can see all the elements that are needed, and also so they don’t forget to include anything. Like captions for photos. It’s a good thing pictures are worth a thousand words.
