A header image is to a website what a cover photo is to a magazine. It’s gotta look good! A good rule of thumb when choosing a header image is to go with a photo that you feel best represents what your organization is all about, or one that is visually striking. If you need images to use throughout your website and don’t have enough of your own, there are open-source websites that provide great photos for anyone to use, totally free of charge. A good one is Unsplash.com.
