Images important part of website design

Images important part of your website design, Images help your website visitors to engage with the content on your website, in fact many people will scan a website looking at pictures only, then when they find a picture relevant to what they are looking for will then engage in reading content.

Images important representation – These are typically pictures that represent your content, either for business or discussion pages, it is better to use images that relate to your content to engage your visitors.

If your website is about a single topic try to use your best images in your home page as that will be the page most visitors will land on first.

Try to engage your website visitors on each page by placing your images in a manner that will lead them to the next paragraph or topic, almost like telling a story, as children we learn to read by using childrens books! when you read the story book you look at the picture making you understand what the text is saying, if you can achieve this on your web page visitors will continue reading further into your website.

Why use a transparent image?

A transparent background image can be used for many applications in web design, publishing, advertising, social media and many business development projects.

Firstly an image with a transparent background is more commonly useful when your background is coloured.

An example of this is shown below in a website header, you can see that the transparent background image blends into the background colour, but an image with a background such as a .jpg image always shows its square background and looks poor within a website design.

This problem can occur with all aspects of creating a page, one that looks professional and the other looking poor.

Transparent background images can be used to make business stationary like flyers, business cards, advertising and more.

Finally an image with no background can work for you making your graphics look professional giving your viewers a more pleasurable experience when looking at your page.

Free png images is a resource you can use to find transparent background images and I hope you enjoy all the images created for you and all the images that are added on a daily basis.

If you have any images you specifically want for your project you can contact me through the contact page, if the job is easy there may be no charge if the image can be put onto the website, if it is custom work required there may be a small charge for my time.

Thank You
