Images often constitute a significant section of a website. If images are placed judiciously with proper words and phrases, they can make a long lasting impression on the minds of the visitors. Images can make a website look lively, vivid and can offer a much needed breather for the visitors. However, they need to be placed carefully and appropriately, otherwise the entire effort might be wasted.

Images can be be used as pictures that help explain your content, decoration to make the page more presentable, or clickable image maps that let the user select a part of the image for more information.
