    images download

    HELLO ALL.



    My question is:

    I've an image with 45KB. I want to put it on a site.

    Should I put it all or should I cut on slices? The size is the same on both (I think).

    Bye::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    If there is no need to have the image sliced up and they are both the same size then its best to have it on your site as a full image.

    You might want to consider playing around with it in Phoroshop in something similar to reduce the file size as 45k for one image may get frustrating if there is other content and images on the page.

    image slice will help if your image is very large (i mean the dimensions).

    but if the dimensions are not very large, you can try just optimizing the image with some tool (photoshop for eg.)

    Whole thing. Don't use slices unless the image is huge either in size or in height/width. Something more than lets say 200 k then slice that up. Otherwise don't worry about it

    The image may end up bigger if you slice it up

    But regardless, there is no point in slicing it up, no matter how big it is (there no benifit in doing so).

    Speaking of slicing, I've always wondered how some of those designers decide how to do it. I see the oddest patterns. I've seen people make a maze out of slices. Wouldn't you think they'd line them all up nicely like graph paper?

    I think some people use the (not all that good) image ready part of photoshop, and they just go psyco with cutting it up
