    • Each week here on the Neogain blog we share useful tips, and today we are going to share a series of tips covering website images.
    • However if you need a web designer, please don’t bother trying to muddle through web design work yourself, and instead hire our Hull web designers to help you!
  • 3.
    • Tip 1 – Raster or Vector? Choose Vector.
    • It could be you are designing a graphic yourself, else have commissioned an image. It is best to have an original image in vector format, rather than raster.
    • Raster images when scales become blocky, whereas a vector image is actually a mathematical structure, that can be resized without losing graphic detail.
    • Why is having an original in vector important?
  • 4.
    • From working your website design, to using the image elsewhere such as in print, you need to make sure you have an image that can be used in a variety of locations, which isn’t always possible, but best try to plan for it.

    • Tip 2 – Take care of the little details.
    • Perhaps you’ve got a logo in your website template? Fantastic, but if you click on it, does it go back to the home page?
    • Many seasoned website visitors would expect that. How about a favicon?
    • Using the free software ico.fx, you can create an icon for your website, that appears in browser bookmarks, tabs and often next to the website url.
  • 6.
    • Tip 3 – Rename the image files.
    • If you are creating thumbnails for use on a website, then include a common word such as thumb as part of the file name. That way when you are search through an image library for those thumbnails, you can search via a keyword!
    • Also by renaming images files using keywords related to the actual image, you are improving the SEO of the image. When inserting images into a blog post or page, don’t forget to fill in the alternate text and caption if available.
  • 7.
    • Tip 4 – Resize those images!
    • Always resize images before you upload them to your website. It will help your servers performance, and again contribute to website search engine optimisation.
    • Plus visitors won’t have to wait for monster images to slowly load. It doesn’t take much effort to resize images, especially with free packages such as the Gimp available.
  • 8.
    • Tip 5 – Don’t use copyright images.
    • Never under any circumstances use copyright images, or images that doesn’t allow your use under its license. Thinking that nobody will mind or notice, is dangerous is illegal.
    • Don’t run the risk, especially as there are plenty of images available for a variety of uses.
