Photos can do a lot for you

Gone are the days of page after page of static photo galleries. But not all “motion” is good. It can, in fact, be a distraction to the reader, taking away from the intended result. This page, for example, has about 300% of the “fancy photo treatments” that might be deemed acceptable in modern webpage design. It’s OK here, however, because of the “illustrative context” of the page (no pun intended). And it’s OK on a family website to have loads of photos.

This slide presentation advances with

a small caption accompanying each

photo…

Particularly useful when the subject matter of the photo leaves nothing unsaid, this approach obviously dictates a more careful than usual selection process when choosing the actual photos to be included. A judicious use of photo slide shows can enhance the overall effectiveness of a website, but please don’t underestimate the importance of the word, “judicious.”

Slide shows can be presented in all sizes and

shapes, this one with caption panels for each

photo…

Perhaps one of the more effective utilizations of the “text/photo” approach shown on this page, this example features a large caption panel explaining each photo. Notice the placement of the main photo element relative to the position of the caption panel in each slide.

Multiple effects can be incorporated within

Digital graphics, much akin to computational technology, have also undergone lightning-paced transformation over the past (pick any number of) years. And the web developer’s choices have never been more robust.
