How do I give movement to my still images?

Motion in Web Design

You don't need whirling dervishes or spinning globes on your web site (just try it in print!) to imply motion. Motion in visual images is an illusion. You can blur an image (sfumato) or twist or shift the weight of a figure (contrapposto) to give a still image the force of movement. Use line, direction and dimension to help the image along.
