With the millions of stock photos out there for you to use in your presentation, how do you know which ones to choose? What makes a photograph good enough for a presentation? What should you avoid when choosing a stock photo?
One of the most important things to avoid in a photo is a busy background. The eye needs enough of an interesting image to be drawn into the photo, but when there is too much to look at it becomes overwhelming. So, when there is significant background aspects in a photo of a pet or person, the quality and expression are lost. If you choose a photo with a busy background, your audience won't see the impact and emotion you are trying to get across in your presentation.
