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.
Common Image Effects in E-Learning
Looking through our Examples hub, you’ll find a lot of different approaches for image styles and effects. Here are a few styles that I’ve pulled together.
