A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

20091112_A Picture Is WOrth a Thousand WordsThe following information is from Alexis Gerard, Founder and President, Future Image at the 63rd Annual I3A Conference on Imaging Innovation. Personally, I think a picture is actually worth 10,000 words. What are your thoughts?

Why A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

Whenever communication calls for description of people, places, objects, or processes, IMAGES (Still or Motion) have the following advantages:

  • More Efficient (less time used at either end)
  • More Appealing (you “get to it” faster)
  • Capture information with greater completeness/integrity
  • Avoid language-based problems (global economy)
  • Avoid need for specialized vocabulary
  • Have greater power of conviction
