Help with images

Postby networkmom » Wed Jul 27, 2005 11:59 am

Hello, I need some help making images smaller on my page without making them look blurry. I currently have the images I am talking about on http://www.fitnessandkids.com/dance-dan ... ution.html
The images I have are much larger and alls I did was add them in my frontpage page and then just made them smaller and now they look funny. Can anyone help me and tell me what I need to do?


Thank you
Denise

Instead of using html to re-size them, you will need to load them into a graphics editor and actually resize the images and make them smaller.

This will also decrease the load time of your site.

I'm not familiar with that particular graphic editor, but If it is any good at all, I would have to assume it has this feature. So my best guess would be yes.

Hi Denise!
Here is Gali from All-Occasion ClipArt, who created some graphic images for you. Glad to meet you again! Did you cope with resizing the images? If you need help yet, I'll be glad to help. I consider with microsoft photo editor you will not do this professionally enough.

For Future reference, try this FREE image software to resize:

Also very cool for cataloging pix and building slide shows.

same way, you will need a decent graphics editor. part of that will be the ability to add text to your images.

how, depends on the graphics program you are using.

Text On Images.

Postby vmti2003 » Mon Sep 18, 2006 12:08 pm

There are two ways to add text on images:

If you are using a .jpg image, then you will have to use an image editor to add the text and reimport it into your HTML editor.

If you are using a.gif format, then you can add text on top of the image within your HTML editor.

Considerations
.gifs only support up to 256 colors, so if you have a colorful image, you may see a color loss by converting it from .jpg to .gif. Try it, if you are not happy with the outcome, add your text in your image editor and use the .jpg format.

Hope this helps.
