It may never have occurred to readers, but Credit Union Times is a full-color publication throughout its growing number of pages and has been for years. Even our popular “People Section” in the back of the book each week features only color mug shots of those readers who have been hired, promoted, transferred, elected, retired, or died. And the equally popular “In Other News Section,” which is also carried every week also includes color pictures exclusively of credit union folks who have made donations, received awards, opened new facilities, achieved milestones, or gave out scholarships. Only under special circumstances will a black and white photograph ever appear in these sections. An exception to the color only photograph policy would be when a prominent credit union leader dies and no recent color photos can be located because none exist. For all others, our editors strongly recommend not even bothering to submit any black and white pictures because they won’t get used. Instead, it is recommended that a current photo be taken for Credit Union Times even if it is with nothing more than with one of those readily available and cheap throw-away cameras. A solitary black and white picture in the middle of an all color layout not only looks bad, but it does a disservice to the person(s) in the photo. We all live in a world full of color. Why should it be any different in the pages of Credit Union Times? [email protected]
