    Slicing Question

    Hello All,

    I created a header for my xbox site which is currently 770x100. I want to cut it into three parts but think that it might be too big. If I split it into more parts, will it help load the image quicker?

    Hi

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think if you cut it into smaller parts, it requires more server requests in order to load all the slices - which will put a greater load on the server and slow down the site!!!

    3 slices will be fine and your html code will be clean and simple.

    I reckon you should try to keep things simple - this way your code is easier to debug...

    Yes now that I think of it, you're right about the server load. Thanks.

    The good thing about slicing, you can separately optimize a slice, so if you can find solid blocks of color you can optimize those slices at 8 colors. So you might have more slices but smaller overall file size.
