Citywire: I am completely put off viewing/downloading the jazzed -up Income Investor and similar. What value do large photos of irrelevant scenes like flowers, flames, mug shots etc. I don't have time for this and the images are distracting.

Why can't you provide a simply almost all text, with the exception of relevant diagrams and charts, please?
