Chapter 5. Working with Images

Image Basics

Working Smart with Images

Summary


Images provide much of the artistry and visual appeal of the web. Used with care and imagination, images can add sparkle and charm; used without discretion, they can slow download times to a crawl and cause more annoyance than enjoyment. Understanding graphics and being able to manipulate them on web pages is critical to a web designer’s success. This chapter takes a quick look at the basics of images, the browser, and Dreamweaver. It then examines the various ways images are used in web pages, including background images and sliced image tables. We also look at a few image niceties, including spacer GIFs, lowsrc images, and image placeholders. We finish up with a look at Dreamweaver/Fireworks integration.
