It is 2014. Text without images is boring. Soon, we'll only publish images, but until then we just add images to texts to make them more interesting.
 
  
Every article should, ideally, have one 'titular' image and some others to lighten up the text. The 'titular' image should be on top and be part of the first paragraph, thus showing up on the dot home page to make that less boring. Use the "edit summary" button to ensure not only the first text paragraph but also the image show up on the front page. This might require some fiddling with the text to ensure it is not too short!

For KDE.News ("the Dot") and other websites

In general, people appreciate a little visual stimulation when reading an article. Adding just an abstract artwork to a text-only article makes a huge difference.

Abstract artwork is what displays on the side of the first paragraph of an article. Have a look at Konqi's Wikipedia page and you'll get the idea.

Normally, you can use screenshots, photos, sometimes software icons for that purpose. But there are times when nothing at hand can be used for your topic, and that is when Konqi and other KDE dragons come to rescue!

For Dot, you can use the "edit summary" button to ensure not only the first text paragraph but also the image can be displayed on the front page.

Overview gallery

This section lists the thumbnails of the available artworks, each with usage suggestions.
