Use keywords that associate directly with the topic of your course to show relevant images. For example, type in a specific industry and profession, keywords: retail shop customer service.
Show photos that include diverse people and consider your organisation’s policy and guidelines. Use images representing people of different races, gender identities, ages, disabilities, and cultures.
Consider the emotion the image evokes and if it aligns with the tone of your course. Finding the right emotions is tricky, as you may need to pay attention to small gestures in the photos you select.
Do you want to imply a formal, direct, friendly, personal, or fun experience? For example, choosing people looking at the camera may be more personable. Selecting an image of someone dressed casually may demonstrate a very friendly and relaxing topic.
To create a more polished and high-end-looking course, choose images with natural lighting and realistic background.
I would avoid the following styles:
Heavy-coloured of overlay filters
And unless it’s part of the art direction, I will avoid the following type of photos too:
Empty white background
I personally find that white background or studio photos would only look good if the whole course is consistently using the same style, but it doesn't look polish and feel too staged if you use them randomly.
It depends on where and how you want to use the image. Think about how the photo would be seen on screen and its relationship with text and the page.
For example, choose an image heavier on one side to allow empty background on the other. Or an image that provides high contrast background on one side to enable placing text on top.
Use tools such as AdobeXD to give you a vision of how that could look like. It doesn't have to be complicated, a simple and quick mock up is enough to give a sense of which direction you like best.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
