Chapter 5. Using Adobe Photoshop CS2 > Photoshop and the Web

Photoshop and the Web

Chapter 6, “Using Adobe ImageReady CS2,” covers web graphics extensively, but for getting graphics ready for the Web quickly, the following basic concepts serve as an introduction to the world of web graphics.

Save for Web

The World Wide Web, as we know it today, supports several image formats. Actually, it isn't the Web itself, but the software—or browsers—that people use to view the Web. A web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Firefox, or Apple's Safari, is a window in which you can view the content of the Web. These browsers support various image formats, mainly GIF and JPEG. Other formats are supported through the use of plug-ins—add-on software that you can download (usually free)—that add functionality to your browsers. Formats that are supported by plug-ins are PNG, SWF, and SVG, although the latter two are vector-based formats and don't apply to Photoshop. Most of today's modern browsers come installed with some of these plug-ins as well.
