Basic Principles for Image Selection*

Before starting a VTS discussion it is important to consider the basic principles for image selection:

  1. The image must correspond to the development of the viewer.
  2. The viewer needs a known entry point.
  3. The topic should interest the viewer.
  4. The picture should tell a story that can be interpreted differntly.
  5. The sequence of images should be challenging.
