graphic formats
Graphic Formats
  • The three most widely used file formats for graphics are GIF, JPEG, and PNG:
    • GIF files are small and load fast
    • JPEG files are usually larger than GIF, but are best-suited for photographs
    • PNG was created as a license-free alternative to GIF
  • When you save a Web page in which you have inserted a picture, you must be sure to save the picture to the Web site's images folder.
    • Embedded file

  • A marquee is an eye-catching graphic that you can add to a Web page.
  • Marquees should be used sparingly because they can easily overpower a page and distract the Web page viewer.

  • Same technique as in Word
  • Keep an eye on download time in the status bar
  • Alternative text
    • Short phrase that identifies or describes a picture
    • Identifies the picture’s contents as it is being downloaded
