Web Graphics Bible

Overview

Graphics can make or break a Web site. If the images are beautiful but slow-loading, you'll make enemies. If they're ugly yet fast-loading, you may not make enemies, but you won't make friends either.

Fortunately, with Web Graphics Bible, you can ensure that all your graphic images will add value to your pages without adding to download time. In this comprehensive reference and tutorial in one, Web and ...

Overview

Graphics can make or break a Web site. If the images are beautiful but slow-loading, you'll make enemies. If they're ugly yet fast-loading, you may not make enemies, but you won't make friends either.

Fortunately, with Web Graphics Bible, you can ensure that all your graphic images will add value to your pages without adding to download time. In this comprehensive reference and tutorial in one, Web and multimedia pro Ron Wodaski reveals not only high-tech tips and tricks that make for efficient graphics, but also proven design principles to ensure that the look of your site is ideally suited to its content and purpose.

Turn to Web Graphics Bible for complete information on how to:

  • Use HTML tags to embed graphic images in your Web pages and control placement, size, and text flow
  • Take advantage of freely available images and clip art
  • Get beyond HTML's typographic limitations with bitmapped text
  • Use popular image-editing software and amp up performance with special graphics hardware
  • Know when to save images as GIFs and when to save them as JPEGs
  • Reduce bit-depth to make image file sizes smaller without making images look bad
  • Make graphics seem to load faster by using interlaced GIFs and progressive JPEGs
  • Create client-side and server-side image maps and transform graphics into useful, appealing navigation elements
  • Add animation to your Web pages in one of the easiest ways possible (for you and for visitors to your site): use animated GIFs

Plus, Web Graphics Bible features a 16-page, full-color insert illustrating the effects you canachieve. The book also comes complete with a bonus CD-ROM containing over 500 megabytes of Windows shareware, trial versions, and demos, including:

  • Image-editing applications such as Painter, Expression, and Paint Shop Pro
  • Special effects programs and plug-ins such as Detailer, Kai's Power Tools, Bryce 2, Auto F/X, and trueSpace
  • Essential utilities for compressing images and uploading them to your Web server
  • Tutorials, Web tours, palettes, sample graphics, and design tips

Editorial Reviews

Bill Carmada
Recipe for the Web Graphics Bible:

1. Start with a heaping of clear, clever and amusing discussions of virtually every topic you might encounter in creating Web graphics. Lines and dividers. Buttons and backgrounds. Image maps. Text effects. JPEG vs. GIF. Web-safe color palettes. Interlacing and transparency.

2. Stir in step-by-step procedures for all the tasks you're most likely to perform-using the software you're most likely to use. Color reductions with Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro. Image mapping with LiveImage and MapEdit. Creating a GIF animation with Painter.

3. Season with insight into the real day-to-day issues that Web designers face. Creating an overall site concept-and getting it past your company's internal politicians. Doing makeovers on crummy existing sites.

4. Serve with CD-ROM containing dollops of trialware and demos (Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and PageMaker; Caligari trueSpace3, Fractal Design Painter, Detailer and Expression, Jasc Paint Shop Pro, Macromedia Flash, MetaTools Kai's Power Tools, and lots more). The result? Very tasty
