View Full Version : trying to work with different resolution with graphics

12-28-2005, 03:32 PM
hi there,

im having issues at the moment with trying to design my web page for different resolutions, this is due to the fact i have made graphics that contain text that needs to be read. the problem is if i make the graphics smaller, they become unreadable to someone with a bigger resolution, and if kept the same size they produce schrollbars and a not too good looking site.

i really want to keep a tight, well made site but im finding it difficult trying to get all my content in whilst make it fit all screen sizes.

Ive heard of javascript detection but that means i have to update every page, and css wont sort the graphics out will it?

any advice, wisdom, slander would be much appreciated.

If anyone is interested, it'd be cool to add a css wiz or anyone creative to my msn contacts so i can bounce/help ideas off them and vice versa. if your interested its muggz82@hotmail.com

thanks guys

can you post a link to the page?

Ditto on the link, but first off, it is a bad idea to use images for body text; even though the available font choices are limited, most of the scaling issues you mention evaporate the moment you start using text for text.

Reserve images for the occasional heading, using one of the image replacement techniques available, and use plain text for the rest.
