The Graphic Idea
We have all heard the saying that 'A picture is worth a thousand words' and usually this is going to be true. You are going to be able to express more in the graphics and the photos on your site than you may be able to explain for some readers. Use the reason of 'providing information' web site, if you are providing information for students, parents, researchers, scientists or who ever.
When you use graphics and pictures on your site that will match your web site topic like, schools, books, nature, animals, plants, building, construction, or computers or what ever your information is about. Your readers are going to know that they are on the 'right page' before they ever read a word on your site because of what your graphics are telling them.
Choosing the Right Graphics
Matching your graphics to your written word, the importance of your site is going to become more noticeable, and readers are going to take more time and learn about what is on your site, no matter if you are selling, providing information or if you are connecting people in some manner. If you are selling motorcycles online, you are not going to show pictures and graphics of toys, your need to create an entire theme for a topic on motorcycles that will interest the readers on what you are offering.
Creating the overall web site that presents your ideas, thoughts, goals, and dreams on a page that will interest others is complete with the use of graphics. Keep in mind, when building a web site that you should only use what you would want to see if you were the reader coming to this site.
