    What canvas size or image size is required to view on a 1024x768 res
    standard ie6 browser ?
    Is the 1024x768 the best resoltion to aim for ? Or is there a way to make
    your web pages dynamic so that they can be viewed at any res and with any
    browser?
    Hope somebody can help.

    I usually go a bit smaller, say 768x512.

    It is possible to display a different size image depending on the display
    size using JavaScript, but I think very few people bother.

    You can make your web pages fit any size browser window by using percentages
    in the style sheet, but it's not a good idea to do the same with pictures.
    Most browsers do a lousy job of resizing images.

    If you compute the percentage of the image's true width against the screen
    width -in- the size you're most aiming for ... you can express the WIDTH tag
    of the image as a percent. Don't add the HEIGHT tag!

    As the browsers vary their display size, most will resize the image
    proportionately.

    That is actually a very big image for the WEB, you'll cover many
    people's screens at that size, leaving no space for buttons or
    links or text.

    It all depends on what you want to do with the image...

  6. That would yield very nasty results in many cases, as the resizing by a
    browser does not come near to a properly resized pic in PS. Graphics look
    horrible that way most of the time.

    Keep in mind to balance display size with file size by making all
    adjustments within your graphics editor. If you reduce the display size with
    html tags, the file size remains the same. Thus that long download time due
    to the 1024x768 3meg file is not reduced with tags of width="200" and
    height="158". Because you now have a 3MB file displayed at 200x150.

    quite true! I have found, if you are able to work off line, and
    preview it, use a size which goes with the layout, no one will want to
    wait for that big of a file. Also, using photoshop, you can reduce
    the quality a bit which helps the jpg load quicker.
