Tips for using Britannica Image Quest with students:
1. Counsel students not to use the thumbnail images in their projects. Thumbnail images will pixelate and lose quality when enlarged in a project. If students click on the text below the thumbnail image, they will get the option to download the image.  
2. When students download an image, it will come with a .txt file with the caption and credit information. Students can simply copy the caption and credit information from the database screen as well.
