]]> A professional website should not only include exceptional content but great photos as well. Photography has become more important than ever in web design, advertising and social media. If you’re not using professional photos on your site, you’re not communicating with users on a deep, emotional level.

Regardless of the field you work in, photography can help you improve user engagement and even acquire new clients. If you’re ready to go on this journey, you need a useful resource to turn to.

Despositphotos is one of the largest stock photo banks in the world with over 50 million files. It’s the place to go when you have a constant need for visual content. The website not only sells photographs but also videos, vectors and illustrations. It has everything you need in one place for any type of project.

Professional Stock Photos Vs. Outdated Stock Photos

When choosing stock photography, look for professional photos instead of outdated ones. They are better in quality and give a better impression of your website.

Professional stock photos are more modern and authentic looking because they use natural lighting in a natural environment. This makes the photos relatable and popular with clients.

Outdated stock photos have an artificial and phony vibe to them. They look unnatural and are hard to relate to. These images don’t contribute to your message and probably won’t be given a second glance.

]]> Does your form have two separate fields for first name and last name? If it does, you are making it harder for users to fill out your form. But there’s a better way.

Split Name Fields Cause Problems

Not every user has a first and last name. Their cultural background determines how their name is formed. For example, if you’re from Latin America, chances are that you have two last names, one from each parent. If you’re Chinese, your family name is first, personal name is last, and they’re always used together.

Requiring every user to type their name into two separate fields is an impossible task. Some users will be able to do it, but others won’t know how to split their name into first and last. These users will get confused, leave a name field blank and won’t be able to submit the form.

Single “Full Name” Field

A single field labeled “Full Name” is more culturally inclusive. Full name may include first, middle, last, family and other given names. It allows users to type in their name without splitting them into first and last. This is aligned with how users perceive their name as a single coherent entity.

split_vs_one_name_field

Sometimes you may want to split name fields so you can refer to users without using their full name. Instead of asking for a first name, you can give users a “What should we call you?” field. This avoids the first and last name confusion and allows users to specify how to address them.

Cultural Inclusivity

The structure of a name is not the same across cultures. Users who visit your site will consist of a broad range of people from different countries. Your name field should be culturally inclusive so that no one struggles to fill out your form. With most things in life two is better than one. But when it comes to name fields one is better than two.
