Law of Pragnanz
This is a law of UX that has to do with the way we present images to users.
The Law of Pragnanz states that for every complex image, users tend to interpret or perceive it in its simplest form.
This is because the human brain requires the least cognitive effort to interpret the image.
Things to note:
- The human eye tries as much as possible to simplify and put in order complex shapes in order to make it less overwhelming with a lot of information.
- It must be noted that research was conducted and has proven that users are able to visually process and also remember simple figures than very complex ones.
- For the eye to process complex images, it simplifies the complex shape by transforming it into a single, unified shape.
