Is there a way to make an image look 2-D ? I have seen professional websites that have an image, like at the top of the main page, look as if it is about to jump off the page, or it just really stands out from the rest of the page. I don't know anything about HTML but I know I have made a basic website .. I would like to know what and how I can improve my site

Hello Melissa,

You would have to create new images using a 2D (or 3d) image generator and then upload them to Yola. I am not aware of any code that you could add to your code that would make them pop out of your site.

You could try google-ing for a 3D image generator and see if there is one you can use.

I hope this helps.

Hi Melissa

One way to make your images more 2-D or stand out from the rest of a picture is to use a photo editor like Photoshop or an open source version. If you google 'making images pop' you will get a bunch of tutorials that will explain step-by-step how to do it...

However, if you have an inserted image and you want to edit it within Yola using Picnik there are a variety of effects you can apply that will make the focal point of your picture stand out more.

Under the 'effects' tab there is an option called 'boost' which you can use to enhance colours of the focal object. Under the 'frames' tab there is also a 'drop shadow' option which will make the whole picture stand away from whatever backdrop it is on. This will be more visible once you are looking at the preview of the published site. Using a combination of these two effects will make the picture much more noticeable.

If you wanted to upgrade to premium Picnik there are even more options that can make images look 2-D, but try the other options first if you aren't sure.

Hope that helps!
