Images should be thought about carefully and can make or break your design for your website or blog posts. You should always choose relevant images which are related to what you are talking about – this can be both literally or metaphorically. Make sure your image is interesting and eye catching. Look our for different compositions, colours and use of focus. It’s a skill you can build on and develop! Or just ask us for help if you like!
As well as using Istockphoto at Top Left Design which is a fantastic image stockist, we also use three other great image libraries which are FREE – just make sure you never choose any images which are poor quality or cheesy.
Morguefile is a “public image archive for creatives by creatives”. The search function actually works across a few other paid for photo libraries, so if you want just the free ones, don’t click on the tabs for Dreamstime, Shutterstock or Fotolia.
