Workshop

Quiz

1:Suppose that you have a scanned picture of a horse that you need to put on a Web page. How big should you make it, and in what file format should you save it?
A1: Depending on how important the image is to your page, as small as 100×40 pixels or as large as 300×120 pixels. The JPEG format, with about 50 percent compression, would be best.
2:Your company logo is a black letter Z with a red circle behind it. What size should you draw or scan it, and in what file format should you save it for use on your Web page?
A2: About 100×100 pixels is generally good for a logo, but a simple graphic like that will compress very well; you could make it up to 300×300 pixels if you want. Save it as a 16-color GIF file.
3:Should you save a 100×50 pixel button graphic as an interlaced GIF file?
A3: No. A small file like that will load just as fast or faster without interlacing.

Exercises

  • If you have an archive of company (or personal) photos, look through it to find a few that might enhance your Web site. Scan them (or send them out to be scanned) so that you'll have a library of graphics all ready to draw from as you produce more pages in the future.

  • Before you start designing graphics for an important business site, try spicing up your own personal home page. This will give you a chance to learn Paint Shop Pro (or your other graphics software) so that you'll look like you know what you're doing when you tackle it at work.
