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. When creating mockups, marketing and graphic material, you can create a “booklet” of nested designs, track versions, create clickable journeys with hotspots – and much more!
