Image Descriptions And How To Write Them

{Image: a rectangle drawn with black lines on a white background. Inside are three question marks. Beneath the rectangle are three straight horizontal black lines representing text.}

Introduction: What Are Image Descriptions?

Image descriptions are text captions for images on the internet. They can be put in plain text near the image (usually directly following it) or placed as alternate text in the HTML to be picked up by screen readers (although there are problems with this second method that we’ll get into later). It’s simple to add them and it makes the internet more accessible for several groups. While any descriptive writing requires skill to achieve its own beauty, image descriptions are largely tasked with being practical. The idea is to convey the facts of the image, so there’s no need to feel pressured to turn the image description itself into a work of art. This means that image descriptions are easy to create even for non-writers.

As a final note, image descriptions are always separated from the rest of the text with symbols ({}, [], **, (), etc) in order to announce their presence to screen readers.

Reasons For Image Descriptions

I’ve encountered four main purposes of image describing.

Accessibility For Blind And Other Vision-Impaired Internet Users

This is probably the first and most obvious reason to use image descriptions. Without some kind of caption, images are useless to those using screen readers. Colorblind users may also miss nuances to an image. For an idea of how many people that’s excluding, check out the World Health Organization’s page on Vision Impairment and Blindness.

Accessibility For Internet Users With Slow Connections Or Limited Memory

Tumblr user trafalgarslaw has an excellent post on how it’s not just ableist (discriminatory against disabled people) to skip image descriptions, but also classist (discriminatory against poorer individuals). In short, not everybody has high speed internet and unlimited computer memory. This means that it’s easier to use the internet with mods that block ads and images. So without an image description, pictures are just as hidden to them as to those with screen readers.

I mentioned earlier that including the image description in the HTML wasn’t always the best option. This is true for two reasons. First, not all browsers and sites support the same (or any) versions of alternative text, so it’s not a consistent method and it may be inaccessible for some users. Secondly, this group of users (those who turn off image viewing but are not using screen readers) would have to hunt through the HTML to find the description of an image that they may not have any way of knowing is there. It’s not really a workable solution.

Calling Attention To Important Aspects Of The Picture

This is more relevant for images with some kind of point, like a political cartoon or gag comic. Particularly if the image itself is somewhat busy, a well-worded image description can help users focus on the main point. The first point of this Writer’s Resource Blog post is a good summary. Basically, an image description lets you choose, to some degree, what you want your viewers to focus on.

Writers Can Practice Descriptive Skills

I wrote in the introduction that there’s no requirement to be a writer to write image descriptions. While that’s true, it can be a vehicle for writers to practice their descriptive abilities. There are limits to this- as the Dayton Art Institue’s Image Descriptions article states, an image description is supposed to be factual rather than evocative like prose. However, image descriptions do require accuracy, a certain level of detail (more on that later), economy of words, and emphasis on relevant points. These are good skills for any writer to learn, practice, and become proficient at.

The Two Types Of Image Description

There are two main categories of image description. For the purposes of this article, I’ve decided to classify them as sparse and lush.


Sparse image descriptions are best suited for images presented with a particular focus in mind. They contain basic information on what’s in the picture and call attention to the important aspects of it without detailing everything. This means that the same image might be described very differently depending on what its message is. For example, an image of a fashion photo shoot used in an article about clothing will likely be accompanied by a description of what the model is wearing. However, if that same image is used in an article on beauty standards in the fashion industry, the image description will likely emphasize the features of the model, and whether or not there’s been obvious photoshopping.

The pros of sparse image descriptions are that they’re shorter to write, get straight to the point, and don’t clutter that point with unimportant details. The cons are that they can remove reader autonomy (letting the reader decide what they think is important about the image) and are inappropriate for images that are just meant as visual art.


By contrast, lush image descriptions are for when you want to describe everything. They’re the best when presenting visual art without trying to point out anything in particular to your reader, or when you want the reader to decide what’s important. Bottom line, describe everything you notice and can stand to write (and think your audience can stand to read).

The pros of lush image descriptions are that they’re detailed and give everyone the exact picture. If you’re a writer trying to practice description, they can additionally help convey the visual aesthetic by being pleasingly worded as well. The cons are obvious, though- they take longer to write and if you overdo it they can be confusing and overwhelming. The other downside worth noting is author bias. If you want to describe everything, you have to describe everything equally. Your audience will notice if you describe an able-bodied woman as a ‘woman’ and a disabled woman as a ‘disabled woman.’ Plus, on the axis of race, it’s easy to get it wrong, as described in this post by tumblr user sherlocksflataffect. Unless it’s relevant to the point of the picture or you know for certain, it’s generally a good idea to not describe race at all.

Free Website Design Software

Free Website Design Software

Getting a website designed and up and running on the Internet is fairly easy, even for one who is not a professional website designer. You don’t have to be a web professional to put your own site together. You can avoid the high cost of hiring a web design company or a website designer by opting to build it yourself.

The beginner web designer has many options available to choose from when deciding how to go about creating web pages or building a website. High quality but expensive web design software, like Adobe Dreamweaver (and a few others), enables one to create visually appealing designs with just a little practice but they may be too expensive for the beginner web designer.

The good news is you don’t have to spend a lot of money for a website builder to get your web pages online. Free website design software makes the job quick and easy and there is plenty of free software to choose from when one begins to create a site. You may be surprised at just how easy it is to achieve professional looking results using free web design software. Let’s take a look at some free programs that can get your web site designed and live on the web.

Free Web Design Text Editors

One type of free web design software is the common, garden variety text editor that comes with every computer. Many web design beginners probably don’t know that a text editor can be used as an easy website builder but it is true. Your computer’s built-in text editing program is one form of free web designing software that can be used to create the HTML code of a web page. (HTML is Hyper Text Mark-up Language, the formatting code for web pages.)

There are several sites online that will give you all the basic HTML coding knowledge you need to format your web pages with a simple text editor. There are links to a few of these sites below.

Web Design Myths

Website design is the first step towards registering an online presence. There are many myths surrounding it. Some of the common myths surrounding the web design are:

1. Use of maximum colours will help in making the site beautiful.
Pleasing website design is important to attract a web visitor. But many times web designer believes that using maximum colours will add value to the website. Whereas in reality myriad of colours may spoil the outlook of website. Also there are chances of these web visitors getting irritated with the use of too many colours. So the website designer should always use the colours that go well the theme and purpose of the website. Maximum 2 or 3 colours should be used to during web design and always those colours should not hinder the visibility of the website.

2. Adding too much graphics is helpful.

It is true that graphics will make communication easier, but over use of graphics may make it difficult. Many times website developer believes that using too many graphics will add believability to their website. Graphics can be utilised to lend the believability to webpage but more of it may prove intrusive. The page carrying heavy graphics takes lot of time to load. Web design which is spun around simple and easily loading graphics is always loved by the visitor.

3. Flash is necessary to add attractiveness to the website.

Flash is widely used to create advertisement banners and animations during website design. Flash banners can serve their desired purpose only if they are used efficiently and sparingly. As these flash banners may add believability to particular web design, but they have many disadvantages as well. Flash banners can be easily downloaded only if you are connected to high speed connection. When web designer uses too many frames to describe a simple animation then it doesn’t enhances the purpose of website rather it hinders it. A bad decision from website developer is enough to convert the site into trash like using too many frames or duplicating the background in every frame etc. Web designer should remember that not all people have flash pluggins installed in their computer so people may lose their patience if they are asked to download pluggins first to view your site. So web developer should provide the option of non flash version along with the flash version, which allows the web visitor to browse through the information.

4. Website will look same in all browsers.

Even after designing some successful websites many web developers love to believe that the website will look same everywhere as it appears on their pc. Whereas in reality different website browser perceive HTML pages in different manner. So website developer should always make it sure that the website is optimised with web standards adopted by different browsers. Also the web resolution varies from pc to pc. Some may prefer to view the website in 1024 X 768 resolutions whereas some may view the website in 800 X 600 resolutions. Most of the web visitors love to view the website in 800 X 600 resolutions, so the web designer should ensure that the website looks good even in that resolution. The width of the tables should be set in percentage rather than in pixels. If the website designer decides to use pixels in any of the website design then it becomes difficult for the viewer to scroll left and right to view the website properly. So to avoid such circumstances during web development the website developer should use percentage while giving assigning the properties to the table because it will help the viewer to view the website properly in any resolution.

The website designer should always remember that website is designed for the visitor.

While website designing, your web pages are either designed as dynamic or static. Essentially, static web pages are those on your site that send exactly the same response to every search request. On the other hand, dynamic pages are most often customized to offer some form of personalization in the response displayed to the end customer.

Dynamic pages are obviously beneficial, and although search engines may be able to index some of them, generally the pure volume alone is an inhibiting factor to most of the major search engines in the process of search engine optimization.

In a entirely dynamic website, all web contents are stored in a database and assembled into a web page when the page is requested. The dynamic site is essential when frequent change in website content is essential and also to reduce maintenance of the site for the users who do not know HTML. In dynamic websites when the content is retrieved it is merged with a template that provides components that are common to the whole site or sub sections of the site and also includes components that control the style of presentation for the user entered data.

5 Website Design Techniques That May Be Harming A Website and Its SEO Valuation

Designing a website is both art and science. It requires artistic endeavor, visualization from user’s perspective, and great technical skills to convert the visualized design into palpable creativity. The worst thing any company can do is to copy another company’s website and implement it as his/her own. This sequence, if repeated by other companies, leads to a group of inadequately designed websites. It doesn’t suffice the basic requirement of user experience. Such websites qualify a low rank in SEO valuations, resulting in poor traffic and low site ranking in search engine ranking.

There are web design techniques that should be avoided or chosen with objective analysis, as they might be either harming website design, or diminishing SEO valuation. Some are discussed below:

1. Using Tables in Website Layout

Using tables in a web page layout makes the page complicated, as most layout tables use a lot of table attributes such as colspan, rowspan and nested tables. Although designing tables may be easy, the maintenance is tough. Most screen readers find it difficult to understand tables as they are supposed to read it in the sequence displayed in HTML, and the content within a table layout becomes puzzling when read from left to right and top to bottom. This is further exacerbated when the table is nested. HTML5 advocates avoiding tables in page layout and HTML 4.01 disallows it. Presentation is kept separate from HTML, when CSS is used, so maintenance of tables in CSS is a bit easier. Tables might obstruct the flexibility of the page affect SEO. Nested tables take a lot more time to load than CSS for the same design. (1)

2. Infinite Scrolling

Although scrolling is a very popular design and frequently used across most websites (especially e-commerce), it is not for every website. Using this technique depends on the goals of the website. If the goal of the website is to stream content continuously and the content structure is flat, it can be useful. However, if the goal of the website is to assist users to locate a specific task or compare choices, it can hurt user experience.

In specific task accomplishment, users find grouped content more interesting. The user might feel overpowered by the abundance of information presented by scrolling a never ending page (leading to low conversion). Hence, infinite scrolling is a bad technique for websites focussed on task accomplishment activities. This requires them to back-track their search or find a specific content. (2)

3. Parallax Scrolling

Although parallax scrolling is widely used and is a good function that leads to a loyal visitor, there are issues associated with it too. Parallax scrolling may lead to low valuation for SEO ranking. If the parallax website is one page of content, images, and good visual display it is OK. However, if the website has infographic.i.e. image having text, Google does not read it! This can lead to low SEO ranking. It can be sorted by converting the image content to actual text. The problem associated with footers should be taken into account as some users might be looking at the information available at the bottom of the page. Parallax web pages with images may take longer than usual to load, thereby making most users leave the website before the page actually loads. (3)

4. Lazy Loading:

Lazy loading does not allow content or images to load until users interact with that part of the page. This content then cannot be indexed by spiders and will not be able to load the rest of the page (only the visible content gets indexed). This can lead to low valuations for SEO and hurt the page traffic. The development and SEO team should evaluate the intended design to figure out complicated elements that will be difficult to implement. (4)

5. Lack of Mobile Configured Design

With high infiltration of mobile, it is essential for a company to have its website mobile friendly, with a responsive and adaptive design. This has a direct bearing on traffic. With Google’s introduction of mobile algorithm, websites who are not mobile friendly are pushed down into the search listing. A responsive design allows loading of the website on all device types. Device detection is possible through adaptive design, which allows progressive improvement as per user requirements. However, configuration to all available device types may be a challenge. Responsive/adaptive technique of design uses the responsive feature for all content and special coding for images making lightweight pages for mobile, and this improves load time. (5)

Trying to copy a so called ‘great design’ from some other website might look new and creative, but such steps can act as a barrier to meeting the desired goals and objectives of the website in the long run. They may not only harm the creative appeal, but also block the natural SEO valuation of the website.

The above mentioned issue areas are a glimpse into the possible faltering design technique which may either arm or harm a website. It is essential for the site owner to fully understand the purpose of these website designing techniques before just applying them to their website for maximizing gains.

Tips And Tricks For Mastering Website Design

Are you interested in becoming a fantastic web designer? Are there many goals on your plate, but your lack of knowledge in web page design is keeping you from them? The following article can teach you the things you should know to become a better web designer.

HTML5 video is set to become the next standard for displaying videos on the web and naturally, you should offer both a way in which users can stream your content through an HTML5 format as well as another format such as flash for those who have an older browser version.

Avoid using so-called “mystery meat navigation”. This involves using unlabeled images or other elements for the site’s navigation. In many cases, the visitor has to mouse over the buttons to even see what they do. Navigation is best kept simple. Use text links across the top or along the left side of the page.

It may look pretty, but stay away from having too many animations on your site. Having your sales splash page rotate, spin and blink may look cool to you, but it will likely drive potential viewers away. When you add too many flashy splashes like that, it makes your site look amateurish which is not the message you want to convey.

Make sure all of your webpages actually have titles, and make sure they are descriptive. A surprising number of webpages out there are called “untitled document” or “new document”. This not only denies visitors a useful piece of information to remember your site, but also absolutely destroys your SEO, since search engines weight page titles heavily when ranking sites.

Web design is a subject that you always want to stay informed on. With this in mind, if you have any friends that are also into website development then you will want to keep in contact with them. You can exchange any new information you learn so that you’re both on top of your game when it comes to website design.

If you have several pages on your web site, use a navigation bar at the top to help visitors find the information they need right away. Include contact information, so they can speak with you if they’d like. Headings should be clear and visible, and paragraphs should be concise as well as easy to read.

Minimize the amount of clicking or scrolling visitors must do to access information. The more a user has to click or scroll around to find the information they seek, the more likely they are to give up looking for it. Aim for having at least 400 words on every page of your site by combining pages that have content that falls below this number of words.

Make sure your website uses a consistent font throughout. Some websites change fonts willy-nilly without any design reason to do so. This makes the content difficult to process for visitors. Most websites, especially business websites, will do just fine sticking to basic fonts like Arial, Veranda, or even Times New Roman.

It is imperative that all of your webpages have titles. Forgetting to include titles while designing your website can have disastrous consequences. The biggest reason is that it makes your website look unprofessional when there is no title, both on the webpage itself, and also on a search results page. Search engines also place heavy emphasis on titles when determining the content of your website. Remember to utilize keywords, and make your titles descriptive.

Your website’s load times are effected by which file types you use for images. Your graphics should normally be GIFs or JPEGs. Although PNG and MBP files might be the better options for web graphics, they take up way too much disk space. You can convert the larger graphics into a more manageable size to help your viewers have a better user experience.

Test early and often. You need to use your website as a reader would in usability tests early in the design process. Make sure to keep improving and testing it as your website continues to grow.

Try to make sure that any music or pictures that you’re linking to is hosted on your own web server. Do not hotlink to any other website images. This can be construed as bandwidth theft and it could put you in violation of a copyright too. It’s not worth the risk.

While you design your site, remember you don’t have to use all the available space on every web page. When you use all available pixels, the result can be an overwhelmingly cluttered website. Dividing up your site’s elements with blank space, can make it easier for visitors to distinguish what elements perform what function. Space can lend just as much value as information.

Using the tools from a host to build your site is great for basic layout, but don’t completely rely on them. It is ideal that you add an element of uniqueness and personality to your website. This will mean that you need come up with new design elements that are not obtainable by using the provided options of the host’s WYSIWYG editor.

Hosting your own site is a bad idea, even if you’ve got the money to do it. Do as much of the design yourself as possible, but if you hire someone to host it for you, you won’t have to worry about basic security.

Begin by making smaller websites, so you can see your strengths and weaknesses before starting a major site. Create pages that encompass plain text to begin, and build from there as you gain confidence.

As you design a site, look to your target audience. Ask them what is important in the sites they like. This can help you with the design as well as the many features available on your site. Taking advice from your target visitors will help your site be more pertinent.
