Spicing with photos
One of the best ways to spice up your blog is to do it with pictures as Photos are said to speak a zillion words. When a person browses a site, the first thing he does is to scroll the pages and look at the pictures found in it.

If the pictures are interesting, then the person tends to get interested and starts reading it. To make the blog more effective and attractive, it makes good sense for the bloggers to use pictures, videos and graphics while telling their story.

Pictures make the blog interactive
Interactive blogs do a lot better and tend to have more followers, allowing the individual blogger to project the thoughts to the whole world. If it is considered, a picture is worth more than thousand words, a video attached to it is worth even more.

Video blogging and photo blogging increases interactivity more than words. Nowadays, people no longer have time to read long paragraphs as there are huge numbers of websites and blog posts present and there is very little time to go through all of them.

Checking for copyrights
It is very easy to post images on the blogs. However, it is very important on your part to check if you have the authority to do so. It is always considered safe, if you can use photos that you have taken yourself or you can with some research, find photos that are free to be used by anybody on their blogs.

However, make sure that you are not using any copyright restricted pictures on your blogs.

Furthermore, make sure that the pictures relate to the message that you wish to convey. For our discount coupon blog that features jupiter images and istockphoto discount we make it a point to choose high quality pictures that go hand in hand with our blog posts nicely.

Right amount of pictures
The browsers tend to look at 8 to 10 pictures with only a few words in between them and this way, the blogger can easily get their message across to the audience. Do not use too many pictures on your blogs. Photos do tend to take some time to load, causing internet readers to freeze or lag.

Just use as many numbers of photos that is required to convey your message to the point and no more. A balance between the number of pictures and amount of data should be maintained, to get a resultant, a well furnished blog.

Relevant photos

Using the right picture to reflect your point is very essential in attracting the readers to your site. Furthermore, the colors used in the pictures should be appropriate and should not be too bright or dull, but presentable and attractive.

Proper size
The photos should be of a reasonable size. Make them large enough for the viewers to understand the necessary details. However, they should not be that bit so that it takes lots of time to load or stretches the page formatting.

Using ALT tags
You can add ALT tags to the pictures while adding them to the site. These tend to provide with the necessary image description for the readers who mouse over the photos, while increasing your SEO. The search engines tend to read the ALT tags and thus help in the SEO rankings.
