In 2012 we could see the growth of the trend of big images in web design. Throughout the year we could see more and more big and beautiful images appearing in nice and clean designs. If you check out our Best of Web Design in 2012 list you will notice that this trend was quiet strong in 2012. Since we believe that the big images trend will stay strong in 2013, and also because we believe that images can give a lot of personality and style to a design, we decided to gather a list of fresh examples of sites taking advantage of beautiful images. From big thumbnails to huge background photography, you will find a lot of great examples here. Enjoy!
