Images Are the Best Way of Grabbing Attention

According to the recent surveys, visitors need only 4 seconds to decide to leave or stay at a site. When people visit a web store for the first time, they instinctively scan it. Images can capture visitors’ interest immediately and maintain it for a few seconds, long enough to stick around and explore your Magento store.

Today we release new versions of Magento modules that will be helpful in making your website appealing for your clients.
