Using a photo as a key element of web design can give your website an added visual element, as well as depth and space. It is certainly not every photo that will work, but generally if you find one that support the message you are trying to communicate the result can be really great. Using photos as a dominating part of the web design itself is typically seen in photography website templates and many are build on WordPress these days. While large photos can be great for setting the scene and generating the right atmosphere it can be a problem to load times. Designers need to take care that the details in the images are not making it too heavy when it comes to download size. Flash loaders may help here, but still the Internet generation will move on if they have to way a few seconds. In this article, tripwire magazine show you 20 stunning examples of using photos as a design element and central piece in a web design to get a point across to the viewers or to add more depth into the design.
