Quote from: sasha
PNG file is hard to mach with other background except white color, and IE MOZILLA OPERA etc etc dont work right with png file. Especially IE.
I think what sasha is referring to here is something that I experience using transparent PNG files. They look transparent when being saved, after being created in the image editor. But, when viewed in the web page in... for example... IE6... on a #fff (white) background... the PNG images have a light grey background filling in what the transparent part of the image should be. The solution... for me anyway... has been to fill an image with the background color, then paste the actual image into it as a new layer, merge the layers, then save the image as a PNG... and it then displays fine without an un-welcome background tint. In other words... don't save PNGs as a transparency... but with the background color upon which they will be displayed. The only drawback with this is that you need a separate set of images for each different template background. If you were using bakercad's multiple templates mod, then each template folder would need its own images folder with the images modified for that particular template.

A note on image resolution and byte-sizing:
I use Paint Shop Pro (9) for image work and I assume that Photoshop has the same capabilities and probably more. So, you can save your image as either png, gif or jpg, and you can change the compression ratio... and you can also choose the DPI range as well. You can lower the DPI to about 75 for all web images since higher resolutions don't produce noticable improvements for web-viewing as long as the image is viewed at its normal (100%) size. You can also compress using a compression ratio of at least 20:1 without noticably affecting image quality. And, before saving the image in its final format (for web use), try them in all 3 formats to see which format will give you the lowest 'net' byte-size... as all images are not automatically smaller in one format. If the image looks fine in the format with the lowest byte-size, save and use it in that format.

I don't know what you mean with "SEF to have your baseline in full words". :]

Well,  that was to say it's a kind of slogan with important words such as FreeTemplates and so on...
I was suggesting to have them in full words rather in the image.
Spiders love to find those kind of informations. :)

Oh, you mean at my own website Olle Axelsson.se?
You're completely right. Maybe I fix that some day. :)

I thought you talked about my template, that's why my mind went blank. :)
