Aside from HTML, graphics are what make the web "look good." Many sites will turn a surfer away if they don't have pleasing graphics. We will cover some of the basic design tips and tricks to help your site stand out.
All right, let's just say for a minute that we're all HTML experts and we're sitting in our office waiting for a client. Ten minutes pass and Raul walks in.
Raul is the owner, proprietor and CEO of Raul's Creative Candids, in Southern California. Raul's Creative Candids is a photo studio specializing in the manipulation and augmentation of professional portraits.
Raul has a vision. His vision consists of showing the whole population of Southern California (and beyond) the remarkable advantage that his technology offers to those desiring specialized portraits. Of course, being the smart businessman and overall animal that Raul is he has come to the right place.
Humor aside, we're going to use Raul as an example for creating basic web graphic for a business web site. Keep in mind, we're not teaching visual layout and design, just how to create graphics for the web.
In this first section we'll be covering the differences between different graphic formats, color palettes, web page implementation, and more.
