When Images Speak Louder than Words

The pen is mightier than the sword, or so they say. We don’t know how true that is, but  we will say this: Pens are certainly a lot less intimidating. How about this next one?

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words.

Photographs are one of the most powerful tools of engagement online, and is rising in importance as the digital realm takes hold and more people look to online channels for browsing, shopping and socializing. There’s something about a photograph on Godinterest, one that makes a statement or just takes your breath away with its sheer beauty. Why?

In this fast-moving world, when you have a message to convey, people hardly have time to sit down and read. But if you’re able to capture the essence of what you want to say in a photo, you’ll stand a better chance of capturing your target audience. It’s true that our attention is easily distracted by pictures. Visuals are more effective than words literally and figuratively as people tend to stop and look at compelling visuals.

Studies have found that pictures facilitate the learning process, especially when it comes to children and others who are mentally impaired. They have shown that photo’s are easier to remember and associate with facts and that they can both evoke and are able to capture emotions that words cannot, no matter how cleverly they’re used.

In a #Warzone, a Crying Child in the Midst of All the Rubble Drives Home the Pointlessness of It All Much More Than the Harshest of Write-Ups. The Picture of a Little Baby Praying Is Enough to Melt Even the Hardest of Hearts.

However, Most Often Though, It’s Not Just the Pictures Alone That Make a Point. When Combined with the Best Write-Ups, Visuals Help to Push Home the Message in the Most Powerful Way and That’s How They Ought to Be Used on #godinterest

Depression Is a Doosey. a Conversation I Had with a Friend the Other Day Inspired This Post. Depression Runs Rampant and It’s Peculiar That So Many People Afflicted with This Ailment Are #Christians. Why Is That?

  7. I am not a believer, but read your post with interest. I do believe that we live in a “connected” world and that conveying a message through picture does have impact. What saddens me is, for many, we have lost that connection with the person just beyond the screen, we prefer a text to sitting with someone and actively listening to what their saying. While I enjoyed your post and look forward to others, and recognize utilizing a play on words….for me it is always words attached to actions that speak volumes to me. Yes photographs can be powerful in their effect, but with a calloused society, over time they tune out, and no longer see that hurting child or the individual in distress, they just see a picture. Keep posting!
