How to use religion images creatively

Using religion images for print projects Royalty free stock images are particularly useful for print projects because most of the religion images you see on the web aren’t the correct resolution for print — the files are smaller so they load faster in your browser. If you try to print them, they will look small and out of focus. Every image in Shutterstock’s library of religion images comes available for print, meaning the image will be full size and in focus. Be sure to choose an image that leaves room for any text you might want to add, and if you need help resizing and laying out your image, head on over to Shutterstock Editor, where you can find all the templates you need. Using religion images for social media Social media platforms are all about personal expression, which makes them ideal for sharing images depicting one’s religion. Social media feeds are often flooded with images, so users often scroll quickly, looking for an image to stop for. Touching, beautiful, or poignant images of quiet or profound moments in the practice of one’s religion are a welcome break for users, who can stop to share this moment and broaden their social connection. Different platforms require images of different sizes, so if you need help optimizing your image for your platform of choice, head over to Shutterstock Editor, where we’ve done the work of sizing templates for you. Using religion images for website pages If you’re maintaining a website for yourself or an organization, religion images are a good way to communicate your values to your visitors. If your organization all share the same religion, then you can feature images in the background and between blocks of text to draw the eye and create a religious experience while visitors explore your content. If your organization includes people of multiple faiths, showcasing images from each religion is a good way to demonstrate diversity and inclusion. The best images for website pages aren’t overly complicated or “busy.” Choose images without too many visual elements competing for your attention. That way, your visitor can concentrate on the most important visual elements without being overwhelmed or distracted.
