Using Images and Page Weights in Web Design

Duration: 2 hours

There are three common types of image files used on web pages, .jpg (pronounced “jay-peg”) and .gif (pronounced “gif”, not “jif” which is a common mistake). Many other file formats are also used, for example .bmp, .pcx, .tiff etc. However, .jpg .gif and .png are amongst the most popular as they are platform independent and most image editing software can create and edit them. In this course, you will learn how to add images to a web page and understand the importance of page weights and download speeds.
