Maximizing Image Use

Images add visual interest, provide information, amplify the meaning of text, break text into manageable chunks, and give your site character. However, getting the best results from images takes some thought, and before you start throwing pictures at a page, you should ask yourself the following questions:

  • What purpose should the image or images serve?

  • What visual content best suits this purpose?

  • How big are the images (that is, how long will they take to download)?

  • How many images should there be?

  • How well do the images relate to any text and to each other?

  • Where do the images look best on the page?
