I think you may be interpreting things a little overly
article is about eBay and the screenshot depicts what eBay "looks like"
to the user. There's no need for the article to literally say "in the
screenshot to the right, note the balanced use of color and perfectly
straight lines used on the eBay homepage" in order to actually be
discussing the subject of the image.
Um yes it does. Appearence of the website is only part of ebay and if
it is important enough to include a "fair use" image it is important
enough to talk about in the article.
The article on [[Jean-Luc Picard]]
has a screen capture depicting the character but the article doesn't at
any point have a section of text saying "in the screenshot at right,
note how Captain Picard is bald and has a hawkish nose. The gleam of his
scalp offsets the gleam of intelligence in his eye." The whole article
is about the guy and that's a picture showing what he looks like.
No the article is about the character. If the character's apearence is
important enough to use a "fair use" image then it is important enough
to talk about in the article.
