A SnapShot Web customer recently told us about a great resource for icons to use on your website. Spend a few minutes clicking around the Dry Icons site and your see that there are a ton of great options for icons and other design elements to enhance your online presence. You'll see that you can use many of the resources for free (with a few restrictions) or you can purchase a commercial or extended license for a small fee.
If you are interested in incorporating some of these icons into your site and you're not sure how, let us know and we can talk you through the simple steps to pull it off.
We're always looking for great resources to share so let us know when you come across something that would be helpful for church or ministry website.
Follow these quick tips for using images on your church website and you'll have a site that loads quickly and looks great. First, there are a few things you need to know.
Image Dimensions: Digital images are composed of a large number of individual dots called pixels. Every digital image can be measured in terms of pixel width and height. When you look at the information or properties of an image on your computer and you see something like this (Dimensions 3600 x 2400) you are looking at the pixel dimensions of the image. In this case, the image is 3600 pixels wide and 2400 pixels high.
Image Resolution: The resolution of an image is measured in dots per inch (dpi) for print images or pixels per inch (ppi) for images viewed on a computer screen. While not technically the same, the terms dpi and ppi are often used interchangeably. The most common resolution that you will find for images on the web will be 72ppi. This is due to the simple fact that this is the best resolution that can display on the vast majority of computer screens.
