Images or stock images are the heart and soul of any digital project. That may be an online shopping store or an online training program or maybe a website. Using stock images in projects not only grabs the attention of people but also makes them connect to what you want to say. Using images in presentations gives viewers an overview of your intention and lets them remember quickly.
According to MDG Advertising, 67% of online shoppers’ rated high-quality images as being “very important” to their purchase decision, which was slightly more than “product specific information”, “long descriptions”, and “reviews & ratings”.
