Graphic Advisory : Image Impairing Your Site Visitors.
Images So Bad They Look Like They’re Censored
When your photos are so pixelated you’d think the internet went back to 1998; when the image is accidentally cropped to show the top of your head rather than your face; when it’s impossible to see the connection between your website’s purpose and the images you use – that’s when we have a problem.
Site images are there for a reason. They illustrate something about your brand or about yourself, and they help set the mood for the entire site. If the images can’t perform these tasks, then they shouldn’t be on your site. To make sure you get the most out of your site images, use only high-quality files and optimize them to fit your site design (edit tones, crop, play with sizes, etc.).
