    faster loading pgs

    Hi,

    Lets say you have a hight quality image, that has a lot of parts that are the same shade of blue. When slicing in photoshop i silice each section, and thus different files containing basically the same color is created. This is dramatically increasing the load time... serverstore.net for example has a lot of blue, and they have differet files for the same shade, thus thier time to load is somewhat slow

    Is ther a way so that the same blue.*.* to apear whereever i want, in other words only one image file is created for a blue specific color, thus saving space, bandwith, and decreasing loading time?

    One more thing, is there a way that i can create a pre loadaer for a web site that is just pics and text?

    thanks for your support...

    if you have many rectangular slices of the same solid colour, you can just save a 1px x 1px file with a single dot of that colour, and then set the appropriate width/height in your image tag...

    Also you can make *x1 img file for shading and set
    it as background with CSS
    Code:
    background: url(shade.gif) repeat-x;
    You can use it in <td> <body> etc.

    No you can not do it in PS,

    But you can do it in some WYSIWYG tools. Like Dreamweaver, Frontpage

    simply
    Code:
    <img src="1pixelyellow.gif" width="100" height="200">
    It's not exact fit eith your need but I hope this article could answer some of your answers better;
