Chapter 22. Saving Images for the Web > Control Graphic Images

Control Graphic Images

So why worry about this problem at all? Why spend time picking color schemes and worrying about file optimization? Because you can have an impact on what the viewer sees. By following certain conventions, you can limit the amount of variance from your design. You can even control exactly what your viewer sees and make a page look identical to every browser, regardless of version, platform, or color setting. Unfortunately, doing so requires using only black and white, and rather than text, each page would have to be rendered as a graphic. See Figure 22.1 for an example. Using color and modern Web technologies, such as animation, requires compromises. Limiting file size and reducing color palettes often restrict creativity, but these techniques help ensure that your message or vision is communicated.
