Night Drive > Choices

Choices

Consider the header of Night Drive—a series of joined boxes, overlaid with a beveled and shiny yellow badge (FIGURE 1). Two challenges are present: laying out the area with its mixed photos and lines, and then placing the badge on top using a transparent graphic. After some thinking, Shea arrived at two possible courses of action:

  • Slice the whole thing into one large image and save it as a very lightly compressed JPG to preserve the lines with a minimum amount of distortion, which would result in a large file size.

  • Slice the various graphical boxes into their own images, then somehow re-assemble by applying them to the various elements within #pageHeader and the #extraDivs at the bottom (placing the latter at the top using absolute positioning) (FIGURE 2).
