Putting Images in Web Pages
Introduction - The Problem
- Images embedded in web pages with
src="..."> tag, e.g.
<img src="ireland_20050205.jpg" width="192" height="144">
- What's wrong with this? Image is MUCH BIGGER
(1920 x 1440 pixels, 1.5 megabytes) in reality (right click, view
image to see).
- What happens then? Huge image is sent over the
wire! Poor modem users!
- Image resizing ends up being done by the
browser (often badly).
- Should be done by the web page Author
