The Web is smothering in useless images.
These clichéd, stock images communicate absolutely nothing of value, interest or use.
They are one of the worst forms of digital pollution because they take up space on the page, forcing more useful content out of sight. They also slow down the site’s ability to download quickly. [...]
If organizations are filling their websites with these useless, information-free images, are they also filling their websites with useless, information-free text? [...]
They say a picture paints a thousand words but sometimes it’s a thousand words of crap.
