Overview

Creating cool graphics for your web site is no longer a daunting task with Laurie McCanna's expert advice and easy-to-Follow Photoshop and CorelDRAW recipes. Everyone from novices to webmasters needs help fashioning a well-designed web site that includes fabulous and quick downloading images. Creating Great Web Graphics focuses solely on how to create quality PC graphics for World Wide Web sites. Through step-by-step instructions, you learn how to create icons, type, background tiles, and images that work well within Web protocols. McCanna uses the popular PC applications Photoshop and Corel's PhotoPaint to address the major challenges of creating graphics for the Web - creating low-resolution, small files that load quickly but look professional on all major computer platforms (Mac, UNIX, PC). In her straightforward, humorous style, McCanna teaches essential web graphics tricks such as anti-aliasing files so they display smoothly on low-resolution computer monitors, using transparency to create non-rectangular buttons and images, or using beveled edges to give depth to icons. Expert color advice includes color indexing instructions to create the smallest possible files, and a hex code color chart for quick reference when creating your pages. This high-powered but friendly reference belongs on every webmaster's desk.

Creating Great Web Graphics is the first book to focus solely on how to create quality graphics for World Wide Web sites. Through step-by-step instruction, the author teaches readers how to create icons, type, background titles, and images that work well within Web protocols. This is the only book that shows how to create cool, good looking Web page graphics for both novice and expert Web users on the PC.
