do I download your Graphics and animations?
Netscape or Microsoft Explorer, put your mouse pointer on the image you
would like to download, click the right mouse button and then choose save
this image as. That will download the Graphic to your computer. To use
the basic html (below), save it in the directory with your html pages.
WebTV, how can I save or store an image file?
need some type of transloading service, Here
is a free transloading service. Well, this one isn't free any more, but
it's still a nice example - looks like 1 cent 100 k. If you find a nice
one that's free let me know and I'll replace this link.
downloaded the graphic now what do I do with it?
would like to use a ".gif" image or animation on your Web Page you may
want to learn how to do this with HTML. And this command line (within ?>'s):
IMG SRC = "(name of graphic).gif."
have a program to compose webpages, insert the animated gif image as you
would any gif or jpg.
make a new folder for the artist, within your webpage folder, for instance
kitty, then you include the folder name in your html:
SRC = "kitty/(name of graphic).gif."
do you get your pictures?
are charactors which I drew myself - with the exception of the sweeping
animation in my guestbook - which was copyright free.
to I get them to the Server to put on my Web Page?
can FTP them to the server.
FTP program do you use to do this?
are several good programs you can use. Personally, I use a program called

the page with a lot of other useful programs.
re-size the graphics?
recommend it because it can cause strange lines running through an animation,
but it is possible. You will need this HTML command following (within
the ?>'s) your img src command: "HEIGHT= (height in pixels)" "WIDTH=(width
in pixels)" - but be careful to keep them at an equal percentage to the
is no way I can download your graphics. Can you send them in the mail on
a disk to me.
I put animations on my own pages they have lines through them and look
removing the height and width commands from your html source code, many
gif files have this information inside the files already.

but may still be helpful.)

AOL and can see the images and animations on my web page, but others can't?
AOL browser, there is an option to use "compressed" graphics. 1) Go into
the Preferences of the AOL web browser, and turn off the "Use Compressed
Graphics" option. 2) Clear your web browser's cache, which is located under
the "Advanced" options, and reload the current webpage. 3) Find copies
of all the images you have on your page and upload them all again.
also possible that your page-making software is changing the files. One
way around this is to upload your images before you make your web page.

music is copyright free music from a Corel CD, and background credits are
at the bottom of my pages.
