“Users pay attention to information-carrying images that show content that’s relevant to the task at hand. And users ignore purely decorative images that don’t add real content to the page. So much fluff — of which there’s too much already on the Web.”
Some great advice in the latest Alertbox on using photos and images effectively, especially in e-commerce.

Did you know if you link images with out paying a license fee, you are violating a patent? Tis true. I wonder how many companies they’ll sucker into paying them.

For Pete’s asking about the image resizing thing-a-majig… here are a few links.

An online version is available (albeit a guessed copy not the original), Shai Avidan (the thing-a-majig creator) was hired by Adobe days after the video came out, and for those who use GIMP there is a Liquid Rescale plugin that is another attempt at the original functionality. Can’t wait to see what Shai comes up with at Adobe :)
