Building a good website means having a game plan in place for your content, images, layout, and general user experience.
RocketTheme has teamed up with Vector Open Stock to create an exclusive free icon set that you can use on your next project.
Today's Web is explored through a variety of screens ranging from small smartphones to giant big-screen televisions. Designing your site to work consistently across various screen sizes makes it a more pleasant experience for all visitors, regardless of the device they use to access it.
A website without images can be pretty bland, but where do you find images that you can use legally? Stories about sites caught in costly litigation over copyright violations can be found all over the news, and avoiding this type of situation is paramount to maintaining a good, reputable site.
So, where do you find these images? How can you make sure that you're using photos that aren't being claimed by someone that doesn't want their image readily shared with the world?
In this article, we'll go over some considerations, as well as some of our favorite image sources.
One of the best ways to improve the performance of a sluggish websites comes in the form of image optimization. As sites become increasingly visual, it’s easy to get carried away and add significant amounts of data to each page load. This can quickly bog down your server, increase load times for visitors, and do a number on your bandwidth bill.
One simple and easy solution to this problem is to run your site’s images through an image optimizer. By reducing the file size without significantly impacting an image’s visual appeal, you can achieve faster page load times and lower per-visitor bandwidth usage which will make you and your visitors very happy.
