View Full Version : Implementing Graphics

07-20-2006, 06:34 PM
I'm working on the overall design to my site and creating all the custom parts in adobe.

What I need to know is the best method of implementing my graphics into the web design.

I see some sites have the graphics broken up into small bits and pieces that look like they are controlled by database calls.

I've usually just set my graphics as background images to the table they are placed in, then overlay my html code over the design. Is this a poor or correct method ... I have no idea.

Please give me some insite on this.

The exact method for implementing the page depends on the design somehwhat. Can you show us what yours looks like?

Now days tables aren't used for layout purposes. You can use CSS to position the elements on the page. And if you want to look at some examples of sites that do so, you can look at the sticky thread in this forum, Examples of layouts using valid XHTML & CSS (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=23475).

I think I know what he means because I have the same question. I use it on this website, www.freewebs.com/psilotec .

I make the graphic the td background and lay the content on top of it but it is inconvinent and sometimes it doesn't align right. Is there any other method other than using css?

What is the worldofwarcraft.com method?

My website is very graphically intense and every part is custom designed.
