What makes an image effective for internet use?


“Use a picture.  It’s worth a thousand words.” – Arthur Brisbane

Besides, the world wide web would be a boring place without them.  Visual information is also quick and convenient.  Images trigger emotions and engage the viewer making content memorable.  We should consider a few specifications when choosing images for use on the internet.  These considerations include size, resolution, relevance and effectiveness.

What are the images’ purpose?  Are they relevant and supportive to the site’s content?  Do they attract viewer attention and guide the viewer’s line of sight?  Is placement related to the adjacent content?

Images are of great value to the presentation of information.  We perceive approximately 90% of all information visually, after all.  So, it’s worth taking a little time to think about how to use them in your content management.
