Using Photos to Grab Attention 
      When the headline and the photo have intrigued them, people read the story.
      People are drawn to photos of people...not of things.
      Make the person or product the "hero" of the photo. Avoid wide angel
           shots where the image of the person or product is small.
      Must use printed photographs, not digital images, for printing.
