  1. Use good quality images. If the image you choose is blurry, lacks a focal point, is poorly lit, or is otherwise of poor quality, it will distract from your message and do more harm than good.
  2. Match the size and quality of the image to your application. If you want to use an image on a 40” x 80” poster, you need an image that is 300 dpi or larger. If you’re using an image on a Web site, 72 dpi is fine.
  3. Avoid too much of a good thing. One or two well-placed, good quality images can enhance your message; several images may detract from your message and confuse your audience.
  4. Credit your source. Unless the photo is your own, you must credit your source. See Borrowing Images from the Web: A FAQ from TechSoup for more information.
