You know how the old adage goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” And on the web, beautiful, high-resolution photos can really set your website apart from the competition by lending an air of professionalism to your site. However, not all of us are blessed with the photographic skills of Ansel Adams, nor do we have the time to snap the perfect photo for our website.
Don’t worry though, we’ve got your back.
On Sunday we launched the vFlyer Sites Image Library, which grants you access to over 200 beautiful, licensed stock images for use on your vFlyer website. And we’ll continue to add to this collection over time, giving you even more options for your website as a vFlyer customer.
The image library is accessible from any module that supports images, like the Photo Gallery, Slideshow, and Freeform module. We’ve even got a special library for the splash image module which features cropped, wide aspect-ratio versions of our images.
To access the Image Library from a module, just click the Add from library link on the module content screen. Then use the drop-down menu to toggle between various categories.
Use images to upgrade the look of your site
Now that you’re equipped with a bunch of fantastic photos, it’s time to upgrade the look of your site. Here are some ideas for using these new photos to dress up your website:
Three image splash: Use the column divider to split up the splash image area into three different images.
Slideshows with captions: Put a slideshow on your site with captions. Use the captions to highlight your company’s specialties.
Service list pictures: Update your list of services with high quality images for the thumbnails.
These are just a few ideas for improving your website with the great photos we have in our Image Library. Have fun decorating your site!
