10 things you should do before putting images on your website
1. Use your brand colours
The more you use your brand colours, the more your customers will recognize that brand.
2. Export small images sizes
Smaller image sizes will help improve the speed of your website, which is good for ranking on Google.
3. Add ALT text to images
Customers with visual difficulties will be able to learn what your image is about. It is also good for improving your SEO (Google ranking).
4. Design images for mobile too
If your image is too wide and detailed, it will be hard to see for your iPhone and android customers. Keep them in mind when you are designing your images.
5. Make sure you can use it commercially
Remember, just because it is on Google does not mean that you have the right to use it on your website. Always check to see if you can use the image commercially.
6. Create to suit your message
What kind of message is your brand sending? Is it fun? Do your images send a fun message? Is it professional? Make sure your images are communicating your message.
7. Check for mistakes
Do a quality check to ensure your images are high quality to your standard.
8. Touch up the image
Give the images a few touch ups before you upload them.
9. Check if the image is relevant to the website content
Relevant images can help your customers understand the message you are trying to get across.
10. Check to see if the image is unique
Have images that make your brand stand out from the crowd.
