Ever wanted to put an image in place of an old scroll-to-top icon on your website?
A scroll-to-top is an icon that takes you to the top of the webpage when clicked.
Usually, it is a simple arrow icon. Nothing anyone would notice.
But an image, such as your mascot or your face pointing upwards? It surely will leave an impression on your visitors.
