Website PDF Downloads Have Never Been Easier

When designing a website to be informative and conduct business, sometimes you need your visitor to download some information.  This might be a price list, or terms and conditions or another document type.  The most common filetype for this type of information download is in the PDF format. PDF files can be created really easily on most document editors, they can be compressed to make them quick to download and when opened and viewed on a different platform the file looks the same as when you saved it.

At theimagefile, we have created a new page type to make it so easy for you to add PDF file downloads from your website.  Just create the page, upload the file and save.

Social media in 2017

Brand Audit: Visual Identity

This is the first time we have talked about visuals and design in this brand audit series. This is for a reason.

However, this approach means that you could be missing out on the hidden potential of your brand identity. 


Brand Audit: SEO

We’re back with the sixth part of our brand audit series! Once you have audited your site’s content and functionality, the next step is to review your search engine optimisation. In this part, our aim is to edit, check and clean up any SEO that you have done in the past so that it is working for your business today. 

As we talked about off-site SEO the other week (what you and others do away from your site to boost your optimisation) this post is going to focus on tidying up your on-site SEO. 


Improved Options for Slideshow with 6 Fixed Images

An update has been added to the Slideshow with 6 fixed images page adding additional page layout options.  Previously there were four configurations of the layout order for the page components: slideshow, text area and two rows of fixed images.  Those layout options have now been increased to twelve, so you have complete control over every configuration possible.

The additional options mean that the selection interface has also changed to make it really clear what order you have selected, with simple up and down arrows to move the components before you save.

Below are just a few examples:
