Title Photojournalistic treatment on the front pages of digital newspapers. Proposal and application of an analysis model Summary Evaluation of the photojournalistic uses in the digital newspapers El Mundo, La Vanguardia, Sur and La Voz de Galicia, during January, 2010. We use an original analysis model to extract quantitative and qualitative values. The aim is to contrast previous studies and to discover new trends. The results reveal that numerous photos are published, but almost always they are decorative; they have small size and close-up framing and they are poorly ranked. The conclusions are: a) Photographs have, in general, limited informative value. b) The analysis reveals a situation of expressive impoverishment, mass-production and immateriality. c) The web newspapers use similar photographic methods. Keywords Photojournalism, Cyberjournalism, Photography, Layout, Journalistic Design, Illustration, Galleries
