Popular Image Styles and Effects for Using Stock Photos in E-Learning #156

Creative Image Effects in E-Learning #156: Challenge | Recap

Do you have a go-to image style or effect that you like to use for general or rapid course design?

Let me explain.

By general course design, I mean the courses you build regularly for internal or external customers. The courses look good (maybe even great!), but they’re not the one-of-a-kind courses you’d showcase or submit in a Guru contest.

And by go-to image styles, I mean the standard or most-used effects or presentation styles you apply to the stock photos in your courses.

My Favorite Image Effects

When I used to build courses, my go-to effect was the faded image. It was a simple technique that allowed me to use full-slide photos as both image and background.
