Hey guys! I have an honestly broad question about web design, but I know people here are very helpful and perhaps somebody can point me into the right direction.
Question: where do I find pictures for my web site and which dimensions/ratios should I use to make the site easy to load?
Websites that I am inspired with are all built on very simple canvases with very nice pictures doing all the charm. I am completely lacking any photo design skills, but suspect there have got to be some best practices in this area. In my website I intend to use one picture for each item (article, project) in 2-3 variations, such as hero and thumbnail.
I am essentially looking for (1) resources with more or less business-oriented pictures; (2) best practices on cutting the size without damaging the quality; (3) any conventions on how to handle pictures on your website.
Any tips and recommendations are welcome!
