Photo Credits: Photo credits I

SIM STYLE: How do I credit multiple photographers on one spread?
SIM has adopted the following style (please note punctuation and italicization):
Photographers: above, Ross Chapple; right and far right, Jay Graham; below, Jim Hedrich, Hedrich-Blessing.

For more information, see credits section in the SIM stylebook or Issue 63.

GRAMMAR: Is there a difference between e.g. and i.e.?
Yes. “E.g.” is short for the Latin exempli gratia, which means “for example.”
“I.e.” is much more specific, short for the Latin id est, meaning “that is.” Both phrases should be set off with commas.
 correct: Several Craftsman characteristics distinguish the home, e.g., clean lines and geometric patterns.
correct: One feature stands out in the foyer, i.e., the majestic Palladian window.

While these abbreviations can establish an air of authority in somewhat
technical writing, they tend to sound pretentious in conversational writing. Use them sparingly.
