The keys to your images have quality
How were your first steps with the web page editor Mobsyte? I hope that it is as simple as I have shownin my previous learning pill. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of resources available. So today I want to speak about the power of the image.
You have probably heard many times the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, it’s good to know that a website with images makes its appeal multiply by ten. Let me show you a small piece to illustrate what I mean. The human eye has the ability to detect and identify an image in only 13 milliseconds. That is amazing capture power you should take advantage of.
But …. when you upload a picture to your page are you sure its high enough quality? Does it say what you want it to say? Now I want to show that there are a thousand ways to edit an image to have the quality that your website deserves. Better quality, in terms of web pages, results in more attention from your visitors.
Firstly, Mobsyte has its own editing tool where you can upload one of your own images or use the associated image search engine, Flickr. With Mobsyte’s tools you can edit an image in terms of size and orientation in addition to tweaking the color, brightness, contrast, saturation, etc.
I find that the optimal image resolution is usually between 1024 and 1200 pixels wide by 444 high. These images are around 200 kilobytes in size. Give our editor a try to check its versatility. Feel free to retouch your images and improve their quality. Note that some brightness and contrast will be sufficient in most cases but remember the limitations on size and resolution.
If your image is too big, you can use programs such as Photoshop, Gimp or others, that allow you to “thin” the megabytes. If you take my advice, I will tell you do not need a professional editor to get what you need. There are some free and easy programs like PhotoScape or Paint.NET that can handle your needs. From profound changes to editing layers, these programs will also allow you to store different formats like gif, png or jpeg.
The power of the image has become so important when creating a website that some people prefer to perform the entire process in full, from image capture to the manipulated pixels. At Mobsyte we are following the work of photographers certified by Google to expand all the possibilities that we offer along with the Pro and Premium versions. Have you heard of indoor maps? More and more are being implemented in the websites business.
We love simplicity, you know, but some people prefer to take care of every detail and we keep that in mind. So I hope that your pictures begin to speak for you very soon and your website becomes the real center of your business.
