The cx photo library
Available to download as a zip. Also available in the shared cxpartners toolkit folder.
When to use cx images
Use cx photos to add visual interest and context to a presentation or document. They are deliberately muted in tone to make them attractive companions rather than the focus of attention.
How to use cx images
Don’t be afraid to be bold
You can overlay text on top of cx images, as long as it’s legible. Try using a 40% opacity overlay to darken the image and then using white type.
Give them some space
Whether you use cx images or externally sourced photos, make sure your images have space to breathe. For more examples see the cx document templates.
What not to do
Please don’t manipulate cx photos in any way, beyond adding an overlay.
Using non-cx images
Try to get hold of the best quality image you can get. Whenever possible, look for images with a similar composition and quality to the cx images.
- Blurred images
- Black and white
- Images with typography
- UX clichés
