Photos - The unsung heroes of user experience design


@chudders is on a mission to improve the quality of web photos.

He believes that as UX’ers we should do more to influence the photos that are used within the digital products and services that we design.

In his presentation he will show you how significant photos are in terms of conversion, user trust, our emotions and usability.

He’ll also demonstrate the impact of bad photos, share a framework to evaluate the usability of photos and share tips and tricks to help you use photos more effectively within your deliverables.
