There's not yet a widely accepted term, but most terms and descriptions point the same general direction. On Android, these are called DotsPageIndicator. According to Apple's guidelines all the dots together form the Page Control and it indicates the number of views. Bootstrap's Carousel plugin calls them Indicators JSSOR calls the combined element ...

I would call the set of dots a navigational indicator for an image scroller/carousel In the iOS Human Interface Guidelines these dots are used on a page control, which is very similar to an image carousel if you think of an image as being a view or page. And are decribed as: A page control indicates the number of open views and which one is ...

Its called "Page Control". You usually use it during App tutorial screens but obviously you can use it at any place.

Entire widget is called as "Image Carousal", small circles and arrows on the loaded image are called as 'Navigator', through this user can navigate to first, last, next, and prev images slides.

It may be a pager control Do the circles also act as links that display a different image? If so, the set of circles could be called a pager control. The fact that they have circles rather than numbers doesn't really change their navigation function.

You mean what those circles are called or what the whole page element is called? The element is called (image) carousel, circles are probably just circles or dots.

I guess in your case it wouldn't make much of a difference with the images being only 30KB small. I don't think that there really is a right or wrong in this case. However, I think you should consider the following points: †) (I assume that these images come from a server. Otherwise the points below will probably be useless (Loading from memory is ...

My recommendation would be to set the: image's alt attribute to specify a text equivalent for the image link's title attribute to describe the resource being linked to <A href="https://lebowskifest.com/fests/lebowski-fest-new-york" title="Lebowski Fest New York in August 2014"> <IMG ...

ALT text serves a dual purpose. Purpose 1: Simple Google search for "purpose of alt tag" shows the following answer... The alt text within the ALT tag should let the user know what an image's content and purpose are. Alt text is accessed by screen reader users to provide them with a text equivalent of images. In visual browsers, the alt text is ...

first, I'd consider if an image is actually the best way, in any case, to act as a link; unless the you literally make it super clear that clicking the image will link you to this or that end point, aka as a signifier; perhaps you can show (a basic version of) your link image, which would help to asses that. Provided that you give the image a clear ...

Not only comments help, but they are of the foremost importance. I won't extend much, but will give you a direct example, with restaurants and dishes as we're at it: The research factor This is eye tracking testing from Jakob Nielsen. As you may see, pictures are absolutely secondary, even when it relates to hyped chefs, people concentrated on the text ...

Well, here are some of the common methods: Are any of those aesthetic? Well, we are dealing with Trump. So we could argue they are all improvements. But, ultimately, no. None of these types of methods are aesthetic because they are all unnatural. Humans even at a few days old have an ability to 'see' faces quite well. Any editing that would seem the least ...

I think silhouette would be one of the more aesthetically pleasing effects, provide a nice uniformity and you could set the dark to color to be something that harmonizes with the site colors. The question is is it anonymous enough?

Wipe them out Back to the Future style. Content-aware option in Photoshop allows the background to show through... this keeps the image visually attractive.

The solution chosen by the iOS/Android camera app Aillis (formerly known as Line Camera) is a simple one, but one very dependent on personal taste: They offer censor bars/blockers which are themselves visually attractive (within a particular aesthetic of social media, which includes decorated photos). This is an effective option for photos of the type which ...

Have a default face to put instead of the 'blurred' person. That way you could have actual faces, thus leaving the overall visual of the image, whereas a blur or pixelation would make it more obviously edited. Note: I'm only half-serious about the solution, but if you do this you should obviously use a more neutral face like these. It'll be ...

Chop them off at the neck, like they do on netaporter (would work on a fashion sales site) Create a mask to put over every face, like in Being John Malkovich (would work on a film review site) You don't give much context to your question, so it's difficult to give a meaningful answer...

A Gaussian blur is definitely soft and appealing as a form of censorship. As far as straight up censorship goes, it's the least invasive and least harmful. For better alternatives to blatant censorship, take a look at some advertising banners. You can often censor people's features by providing an overlapping object/banner. An easy way to do this is stitch ...

Sounds like you need to sketch this out with pencil and paper, or paper cutouts, or whiteboard. As far as images being place left/right/center - we can't say one is better than another. It depends many factors and I suspect aesthetics might be the driving one. Note that the location of the images will be harder to change later on, while all the spacing and ...

I would eyeball it. Maybe start around 75-80% of the body font size. How small you can go depends on the font. Note that you should honor the users' font size browser settings, hence don't assume all users will be viewing the same size font that you are seeing. I would not use italics for captions (reserve italics for what they're traditionally used for), ...

More important than typeface, size and style is the use of whitespace. You need to make sure that your readers knows that this text belongs to the image as a caption. You could try with 2em between the image, it's narrow caption and the surrounding text, and see if the effect of the caption belongs to the image or not. From what I've seen, captions are ...

You've mostly answered your own question, if you answer this one: Do your users need to upload images larger than 1MB? For reference, that's about 3 or 4 megapixel.

Both are valable, but it really depends on the goal you want to accomodate for. Always try and ask the 5 whys; this is what a "great startup" would probably do to. My technical respons would be that in this day and age its better to use the client side variant, as it lowers server load and presents more direct feedback. Client systems are more powerful as ...
