Before we can start to think about graphics for an overall site, we need to understand the underlying processes used to create individual graphics, and how to turn general files intended for print-based use into the leaner, more optimized file formats required for use on the Web. In this packed chapter, we’ll introduce:
  • General color theory, what you need to know and why

  • The main web graphics formats — GIFs, JPEGs, and PNGs

  • Using Adobe Photoshop and Macromedia Fireworks to optimize your graphics
