When is it effective to use a gallery? Ask yourself these questions: Are there clear steps or numbered items in your content? Can you add an image for each concept you are introducing? Do you have more than 4 items but less than 25? Will breaking up your content improve readability? Use Your Titles to Encourage Clicks The best titles for galleries promise something. Consuming gallery content takes time, so be sure to provide something […]
