Often I am asked to include specific sliders, large image galleries and certain stylized elements in my designs. I am not sure how to do this in the wireframe state of the process as they seem purely style elements and not necessary in the wireframes.
However, if you already know for example you are going to need a blurred part or (color) overlay over an image to display text properly, would you use this in the wireframe as well?
And if so, how would you do this in either low or hi-fi wireframes? It seems to me this is not in place for low fi wireframes, but possibly helpful in hi-fi wireframes.
Here is an example of the desired end product that is requested and 3 ways I came up with to display this in wireframes. I am currently using 2 as I think 3 is too detailed/styled but I often get comments from clients like 'You forgot to make the bar transparent' or 'It doesn't look like the example I gave you' so I'm debating to use number 3.
