Q&A

Q1:Shouldn't I just hire a graphics artist to design my pages instead of learning all this stuff?
A1: If you have plenty of money and need a visually impressive site—or if you think that ugly building with chartreuse trim that people are always complaining about actually looks pretty nice—hiring some professional help might not be a bad idea. Remember, however, that you probably know what you want better than anyone else does, which often counts more than artistic skills in producing a good Web page.
Q2:I've produced graphics for printing on paper. Is making Web page graphics much different?
A2: Yes. In fact, many of the rules for print graphics are reversed on the Web. Web page graphics have to be low-resolution, while print graphics should be as high-resolution as possible. White washes out black on computer screens, while black bleeds into white on paper. Also, someone may stop a Web page when only half the graphics are done. Try to avoid falling into old habits if you've done a lot of print graphics design.
