I will create my personal logo by using photoshop and if possible I would love to make a motion graphic logo in Aftereffect for the logo design. Since this is a video game website, all images we using in the website are originally from the game or other artists. I will make an extra page and links for the citation and credits in a very professinal way. These will include a featured photo on the home page, photos of the varieties discussed in the review section and video game blog All images will be optimized for web use and credit will be given to the authors. I intend to include this statement below each image, "Photo courtesy of name." I'll include a footer statement such as "All images used in this site are original. Any further use of these images is prohibited."I will do the same thing to both videos and audios
