A few things to keep in mind
Graphics, while appealing to the eye, cause the fill-in rate
of the page to slow tremendously. Your target audience may get
tired of waiting for a graphic to come in and exit your site.
However, there are a few simple rules to follow which will reduce
graphic related problems.
1. Never put graphics at the very top of a page---put text!
If you follow this rule, the visitor can be reading the text while
waiting for the graphics to fill in.
2. Never use graphics to replace text---use it to complement!
Some people choose to "surf" without images in order
to save time. Therefore, always link to text. See sample
3. Keep size in mind! The larger the graphics file, the longer
it takes to come in. The graphics you see on this page are relatively
small. These are ".gif" formatted files which are commonly
used for linework, or artwork that is made up of very few colors.
Another format is available for graphics that consist of many
colors (usually photographs) which is called ".jpeg"
or ".jpg". These are generally much larger in size!
4. It is a good idea to place the graphics that you are using
within the same directory as your .htm (text) files.
