While it is standard procedure for news outlets to attach a picture to most articles published to digital devices, there are a number of different ways publications can use images on their own news sites to illustrate a story, as well as social platforms such as Pinterest.

In this podcast we look at just some examples from the Washington Post, the Guardian, the Huffington Post UK and Grazia magazine, ranging from slideshows, audio slideshows and galleries, through to interactive images, live streams and curated Instagrams.

The podcast hears from:

  • Matthew Tucker, deputy picture editor, Huffington Post UK
  • Cory Haik, executive producer for digital news, Washington Post
  • Peter Sale, multimedia producer, the Guardian
  • Jess Vince, web editor, Grazia magazine

Below are links to some of the projects referred to in the podcast:

Also, here is a link to a previous podcast which looks in more detail at how news outlets are using Pinterest.

Disclaimer: The podcast refers to ThingLink, as an example of a platform used by news outlets interviewed to create interactive images. ThingLink is also a sponsor of’s digital journalism conference news:rewired – digital stories.
