In this mini-series of lessons on creating images for your WordPress site, we’ve covered the basics, experimented with two ways of creating header art from scratch and with text overlaying a photograph, and learned how to put text on images for quotes and other purposes.
Today’s image lesson in this series is about creating a call-to-action graphic.
Call-to-action images are images typically wrapped with a link that behave much like buttons, taking the visitor to a destination on the site, or possibly off the site.
In this lesson, we are going to create an article series badge or graphic. It is a call-to-action to visually represent an article series, and the article series on your test site is a prefect example. The image may also represent a category of posts, and this is just two of the many graphic design elements possible using these basic image editing techniques.
I use category and article series badges in many of my posts. My fans love it as it instantly identifies the topic of the post visually. I don’t recommend it for others, but this is a teaching site and it works to create visual continuity.
