Creative Images

Imagine a webpage without a single image. It’ll look like old 90’s initial web designs. Nowadays images have more reach than content. So click post-worthy portrait and paste it into your nice and creative blog.

Creative Image is a component to place an image and make customization as per requirements. We have provided some animation, masking and scroll reveal options too so that they can be used for visual attention.

Pro tip
Use JPEG instead of PNG to save some space, if you don’t care about detailing.
