Creating images for the Web is a bit different from creating images for output on paper. Although the basic characteristics of Web images and printable images are the same, six main factors distinguish them: format, color, size/resolution, speed, transparency, and animation. This chapter will explain the important aspects of each of these six factors and how to use that knowledge to create the most effective images for your Web site.
Once you've created your images, we'll go on to insert them on your Web page.
