A picture can tell a thousand stories
A well designed photo will contribute more to your site than even the best website design. In the same light, a poor photo can undermine the viewer’s experience, causing them to skim or even leave your website.
Creating an effective photo to be used on your website is much more than snapping a picture with a cell phone. Snap-shots and photos from cell phones lack the quality and the pixel density that is required for finished website photos.
A picture needs a place in your website, it needs to contribute to the specific web-page's story and to be well framed with good lighting. Your photos need to be scalable so they will render equally well on a desktop, laptop, tablet and cell phone. Photos need to coordinate with the color scheme of your website design and when it is possible they need to reflect the texture and feel of your website’s layout. Photos on a website are a tool to tell part of your story. They can be a window into your company, providing an opportunity for potential customers to see what you can do. Pictures need to be incorporated into the flow of a page, contributing and enhancing the visitors experience and knowledge.
