- Image file formats:
- GIF: 256 colors, interlaced, transparency
- JPEG: up to 16M colors.
- Image size: pixels.
- Compression --- decreasing file size. Lossy vs. lossless.
- Usable formats: GIF, JPEG.
- Consideration for those with slow Internet connections or text-only
- Using GIF rather than JPEG; decreasing the number of colors.
- Providing text-only menus along with image-based menus.
- Monitor resolution: yours vs. theirs.
