The LexBlog Platform uses text-based titles for blogs to deliver a truly responsive website.
We do not accommodate graphic-based text images for a blog title because this goes against best practices for responsive web design.
In addition, using an image as a title can cause the following issues on your blog:
Using an Image can cause navigation issues
1. When text that is intended to be read is presented as an image, blind or visually impaired will be at a disadvantage for a few reasons, one of which is because screen readers and other assistive technologies cannot read text that’s contained inside an image.
2. If someone has a slower or unreliable internet connection, their browser does not show or download graphics, or there are any issues with the page loading properly, they’re at risk of missing out on important information that’s conveyed through the image. In this case, the blog title would be missing.
3. A page translator (translating for other languages) cannot translate image text.
Using an Image can interfere with SEO
1. Images of text may hinder the search engine optimization (SEO) of a page. Search engines (like Google) rely on actual text to index content — they don't read images.
2. Text inside images (such as a company’s address that is fixed in an image) cannot be copied by visitors, applied address related meta, or indexed.
Images are not responsive, Text is responsive
1. Text can adapt to different screen sizes and orientations (think desktop vs. mobile) and tends to wrap and display properly across them, remaining readable. Images of text are fixed in size and position, so they do not adapt as well.
2. True text can be resized without losing quality and offers the ability for users to customize things like color and contrast. Images of text tend to become pixelated and lower in quality when enlarged, affecting readability, and also lack the ability to customize based on the user’s needs and preferences.
