All about people images

Whether it’s an activity, a location, or an organization, if the image features people, we can quickly see how the idea relates to us. Whether you need images of business people, happy people, office people, or party people, showcasing authentic, real-world images of people can make your brand, project, event, or activity seem immediate and real. People icons, silhouette people, even crowds of people — they can all bring your project to life.

Using images with people for social media

  • Images with people are great for social media. They’re easy to relate to, and they’re very good at conveying specific emotions without saying a word. When you want to convey a certain personality, experience, or brand, images with people are a fast and ready way to do this.
  • Using images with people for a Facebook cover, for example, can communicate a social, personable identity or brand. If you’re hosting a Facebook event, then images with people make it easy to demonstrate how much fun or how serious the event will be. Instagram posts commonly feature people going about their everyday lives in interesting formats, so they’re a great way to get in on the trend and capture a viewer’s attention.
