Chapter 23. Web/ImageReady > Background tiling

Background tiling

Tiling produces a repetition of the same image in a checkerboard pattern. It’s a frequently used method for filling (and decorating) the background of a Web page. Why use tiling rather than one large image for this purpose? First, because a small tile file will download more quickly than a large image will. And second, a tiled image will always fill the viewer’s entire browser window—regardless of the window size.

You can use ImageReady to convert an image into an HTML tile file and then attach that HTML tile file as a background to a particular image (see the instructions on the next two pages). The background will display when the file is previewed in a browser. You could also assign a color instead of a tiled image to fill the background of a Web page.
