If you like lollies, and we all do (most of us), you will definitely be attracted by the image of lollies. No? Just the view of them will ignite your desire for one. Right?
What is my point?
An image ignites .
Just let that sink.
Now comes my question.
What motivates you? Your surrounding? Your audience?
And how do you use visuals to ignite that?
Motivational pictures are a BIG tool.
Only a few know how to use them.
Some examples of do's and don't
- Too many pictures in a blog are distracting, unless the pictures tell a story and can be read separately.
- Too small or too big is invasive, unless you use it as a boom effect (not to be repeated too often). Most of the time it will scare your viewers or annoy them. Ever tried to enlarge pics that did not show clearly or view them with a magnifying glass? Yuk! Right!
- Common pictures popping up over and over again with a sense of déjà vu. Unless you like boring, you will skip to the next one or leave the page. We all know those images ... even here on our Platform... uh... can we be original?
- Not relevant. A picture with no relation to your subject. Unless it has a meaning, of course.
- Not framed. You all know those heads with no body or bodies with no head. Make sure to use the right frame, eventually you will have to edit your image.
- Bad perspective. Close up, and landscape have specific uses, just like portrait mode and close up.
Those are about the major points of attention when using images.
In the media tool of word press you can set the pictures to your own like. Do not forget to label and save them!
