Hey guys, As a side-note, if you are blowing up (resampling) a screen image in Photoshop, you can use the "Nearest Neighbour" re-sample mode (available in the "Image Size" dialog) which will effectively increase the size of the pixels in the image (so you end up with an image which still looks like ...

Depends on whether you are re-sampling the image for screen or print... big difference... If you do not resample, the only thing you will be changing is how large the image will be displayed (by DPI-aware software) or printed.

If there was a flood the ones who survive would be the ones more suited to surviving a flood. Or those who were unfortunate to get stuck through no fault of their own.

:shock: WHAT? That's a harsh statement if ever I've heard one. How can you say that? How about if lightning struck your house and took you? Does that mean you're weak? Or just unlucky?

Cannot believe you said that.

ok, i was wrong. I was going to suggest you could save it as a "HTML or image" but i wasnt sure if that would make it smaller. Not sure what you mean by "HTML or image"? That option in Photoshop is for when you slice up an image and want Photoshop to export all the individual image files and write ...

I would imagine making these images in JPEG should reduce the size. If you are using Photoshop (i would use ImageReady) go to File>Export>JPEG (i think that is how its done, doing it off the top of my head) and then save it as whatever filename, this should reduce the size of the file. I dont...

Well, having looked into this briefly... yes, it's projected into space and is compatible with existing video sources, but it's still a *flat* (2D) image.

Well, one thing about CSS is it means shorter code (easier for you to read/understand and quicker to download). You could also say it's more future-proof, and more flexible.
