Together with the design, the choice of images, graphic settings and visual appearance are fundamental elements for the success of an Internet site.
The eye always wants its part, even in the computer world.
This is why, for a website, the first impact is the most important, and will determine whether a user will put their “trust” in the other pages. This is not only for the home page, but for all the pages of a site.
Statistics show facts like:
- Articles with relevant and quality images reach 94% more views.
- Pages with images are shared 50% more.
- People remember little of what they read, but if text is associated with an image, it increases by 80%.
It is therefore essential to be able to immediately attract the attention of users who have a few seconds to choose whether or not to continue browsing.
It is known that on the Web every resource appears to be “free”, but always make sure that everything you are using is not subject to any restriction, especially for projects that have international ambitions. It’s best to buy pictures, get them done by a photographer or download images of free use.
Smartphone or photo-camera?
Mobile phone or camera? Until only a few years ago a comparison of this kind was certainly unacceptable, today it has become possible. The latest-generation smartphones are extremely powerful and versatile compared to the past and allow you to take excellent quality images. But it has to be said that dedicated photo cameras are more versatile and with the best results.
