Image or Text, Image or Text ...
I do a lot of reading in the day, articles that I surf to, mainly about design and new places to go visit admittedly, but then again that's my line of business. So here I am sat, thinking about a site I'm working on and I think to myself, what would be more effective, an image to illustrate the point, or a piece of text with power-words in it to grab the surfer's attention?
My that's a pickle eh? Well it IS a good question, too! So I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this - if you want to get their attention to something and you NEED it to be clicked would you use a graphic, or a piece of text?
After browsing a lot, I noticed that many developers these days, use both. Or sometimes, a mouseover reveals text - this immediately grabs attention of course, as the surfer has to read what it is, so it's clearly effective.
