Chapter 4. Ensuring Visual Appeal > Figuring out which graphics to replace

Figuring out which graphics to replace

Make a list of all the graphics your site is currently using, taking note of the file names, functions, and pixel dimensions. Look for banners, promotional graphics, and navigational buttons. Make sure you haven't left anything out. Also, make a list of photos or other elements you will need to revamp. The other elements will range from customized bullet points to multimedia elements.

Decide how you will handle multimedia elements. If their look and feel is very different from the Web site's new look, you might want to revamp them to match. During this process, take the time to clean up old or unused graphics. Figure 4-13 shows a Web site that is considered for redesign; notice the areas that need new or updated graphics. If you find files that aren't being used, don't add them to your list. That way, when it comes time to make the new graphics, you don't waste time making new versions of these obsolete graphics.
