Hour 5. Using Graphics on a Web Page > Selecting the Proper Image Type

Selecting the Proper Image Type

An image prepared for the Web is an entirely different animal than an image prepared for print. If you use high-resolution images, like you would for a printed piece, the file size of your image will be enormous and thus, will take a long time for viewers to access your page. Bandwidth, the bits per second (bps) transferred over the Web when a page is loaded into a browser, is of major concern to Web developers and Web surfers alike. You'll need to compress your images and reduce the resolution to prepare them for use on the Web.

File size refers to the amount of space the file takes up on your hard drive, not the actual dimensions of the image.
