Pictures are important

Although images without useful alt attributes can be confusing for users with visual impairments, pictures assist those who have cognitive disorders. Choose images that support your content. If your pages are about taking care of dogs, include images that illustrate your points or convey the overall message about dog ownership. Don't include images of your last vacation or some other random image “just because it looks pretty.” Make sure that the images match the tone or emotion the site is conveying. A site about a serious topic can be confusing if it includes images of laughing children.

Animations are also very popular and can be helpful. If you decide to include animations, be aware that you should avoid creating animations that flicker and flash excessively. Blinking and flickering can cause problems for people who suffer from seizure disorders. Most people don't enjoy these sorts of animations anyway, so avoiding them makes your site more pleasant for everyone.
