So as mentioned above that the first website came out in 1990, and it was all good, provided it was the first attempt in the realm of web development. Plus, it was something online, which at the time meant “a great deal” of things.

However, it was not long before a new upgrade came into the picture. And coincidentally, the latest update was a picture itself, as the image addition to websites, to make websites more engaging and attractive.

The very first image on an online site was posted in 1992 through a vast process of photoshop editing.

1993: the year when it all turned graphical

It was around the year 1993 that the world’s first graphical public web browser was introduced.

The web browser was called the Mosaic, and it is with the introduction of Mosaic that the web page designing took off.
