Sometimes less is more. When you are conveying a simple, high-level step process, consider using this type of chart. The large photograph creates a tone and the very simple – even minimalistic – horizontal flow with short text strings is perfect. You can place the flow below the photograph if you wish, but we like the feel of the flow "embedded" in the photograph. If you want to overlay the flow, be careful to select a photograph that has an area that can accommodate your text. The example we've provided is perfect. This might even be a good idea for your website. Be sure to download the example we've provided. It has the flow element in it for you to use. You can resize to suit your purposes. Enjoy!
