DON'T FORGET ABOUT BACKGROUNDS


PHOTOGRAPHS (or ILLUSTRATIONS) can be used very successfully as backgrounds to posters and web pages but must
be very carefully chosen. Here is one example, followed by backgrounds (below) that you may consider using, or using as
inspiration for your own ideas. Photographs, because of their complexity (especially in regard to colour and tonal ranges)
make it much more difficult to add text, in particular, and other images that can still be clearly read - an issue of legibility.
