Let’s talk about image.
Some people say that ‘image is everything’, but the trouble is that sometimes people try to stuff everything into the image – and it ends up slowing the whole website down. Cropping images is fine, but you can only go so far – it’s only farmers who like a huge crop.
With humans now having an attention span of just 8.25 seconds, (note Kai’s tweet below)…
…where was I?
Oh, yes, attention spans (I had to quit photography – kept losing focus). Getting your images down to size, using cropping, compression, and even the right image format is crucial. So this week, I recommend taking a look at our latest article, “The Best Image Compression Tools (Real World Testing + Comparison)” – we compressed our best advice, especially for you!
And on the subject of images – have you tried Atarim’s image collaboration tool? Put your clients clearly in the picture, and let your team see visually exactly what they want.
