Can you tell your JPEGs from your GIFs or PNGs? Well...it's not always clear which one is the best choice for your web page. In this 18-tutorial course, Beth and Eric give you the answers so you can see more clearly, and understand exactly what each image type has to offer, so you can make the right choices in your web design. You learn how to optimize your photos, logos and graphics so they look their best but also load fast! You also see firsthand how to convert and resize your images and examine what lossless and lossy formats are all about.
There is also a super informative section on screen readers that shows you how to write descriptive tags for the images in your page to allow anyone, even those who may not be able to see your photos, to get a good idea as to what they're about. CSS also comes into play. Here you learn how to improve the impact your images by laying them out just right, using some simple yet very effective rules.
So, fire up your favorite text editor and get ready to learn how to handle images on the web using HTML and CSS! And while you're here, make sure and watch or review the other courses in our comprehensive series:
Great Course! Explanations are very clear. Great examples are used. I learned a lot!

A very informative course on image manipulation. This refresher course with Html5 has taught me many new possibilities that I could see adding to my websites while I was actually learning them here.

Love the 2 Authors working together. I watched the whole series from Quick Look -104 and I was actually disappointed that it was over. I learnt twice as much in half the time compared to other online tutor courses I've watched. I would really like to see more from Eric & Elisabeth.

Nice and easy entry level tutorial for people who want to learn a little bit about images and how they are used in web pages. Also covers some CSS and modifying images with style.

I learned a lot from this course and the series in general. Topics were discussed in a way that could be understood by beginners.

Once again, great pacing and delivery.
The WickedlySmart folks cover the content in a structured, logical manner and my only complaint is that this is the last course available today.
Hopefully they can cover dynamic content such as rotating banners, retrieving content for databases, etc.
Looking forward to the next course in the series.
