Web Design Tips - Image FIles
The questions we ask are often wrong on their face. In this case a website owner was asking how best to put the detailed image of rug, pillows and sofa on their website. The answer is they shouldn't.
The detailis so HEAVY it will need a jpeg or compressed file to look good and NOT slow down page load times. The text on the right is the real problem. When you use jpegs text looks horrible because the compression makes everything fuzzy.
The human eye doesn't notice fuzzy in the rug and pillows, but in things we're trying to read fuzzy sucks. That is why this image shouldn't be loaded to any website. An image of the rug, pillows and sofa can be loaded as a jpeg and the text should be written in with a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS).
CSS will write the text into the html and so be readable. At this point designing with CSS is so common anyone asking for money to design a website should be able to create a layer with the text in it. The little point might be a tad tricky, but not so tricky most designers shouldn't be able to handle it.
The serif font is a whole other issue (lol), but the answer to how to put this image up is already wrong. This image shouldn't go up to the web as we explain on Stack Exchange.
