Put a Caption on Your Photos
We have consistently recommended captions on Website photos for years and now a major Website has emerged that has a basic strategy built on this concept with millions of users. Pinterest is an entire Website devoted to photos with captions.
Websites are reviewed and scanned very quickly by users and their eyes are always drawn to photography, especially people. Make sure the photos on your Website include real people and things, not clip art, and have a caption or text that summarizes the photo. You can see from the success of Pinterest how important this usability function is to users.
