Website bootcamp module 2: A picture is worth a thousand words

Posted by Sloane Dell'Orto on January 9, 2019

This module introduces a lot of great information about website imagery: where to find fantastic stock photography and icons for free, how to use Google image search to find images you can reuse without copyright issues, when to use images vs. icons, and more. We also touch on the importance of making sure your images are tagged properly for accessibility. Lastly, we cover the reason you shouldn't use graphical images of text (like flyers) - at least, not unless you also add the content as text, too.
