Graphics on the homepage This is one of the fine arts.
I really hate it when I click on a link and then must sit there twiddling my thumbs while the file is transmitted. Tantalizingly enough, the message says "Done" but that applied only to the initial text file. Meanwhile, the big images keep coming ... and I hope this time they will be worth all that digital exercise. Most of the time, I visit sites of this kind once and never again. What is needed is a contradiction in terms: "the perfect compromise" between image quality, image size, and file size. Cameras take pictures in pixels = dots.
The key measure is resolution, expressed in dots per inch, or dpi.
The higher the dpi, the greater the quality, the larger the computer file size. Tip 1: Total file size, including that of the associated images, should be under 20 K. If one needs more than one or two images, one should create several files to link them to. Tip 2: If at all possible, create the image at a very low resolution, in few colors, in the size needed for the screen. Later resizing will not affect the file size but will affect the quality. Example for creating a color image by use of a scanner: BEFORE YOU SCAN or PRESCAN, set the resolution to 72 or 75 dpi, set the colors to 256 (VGA) and set the size to fairly small, such as 2 or 3" wide with the height proportional, or 50% max. of a small photo. AFTER YOU SCAN, crop the image to get rid of any unwanted areas or frames. Save. FINALLY, save in .gif or .jpeg format. Check the file size: if the image file is a bit big (e.g., much more than 20 K), you can adjust the file without corrupting it too much. But if the image file is much too large, rescan it with lower settings, or reduce the number of colors. See

Use the links you have found for your Web-based activity to search out and download an image. Realize that because you can download any image from the Web doesn't mean that you should This being said, choose an image from the links you've found for your Web activity. Look for an image that represents the content, is an image of, or a metaphor for, the topic you're creating a Web-activity around. Then follow the user-friendly steps below:
  • For Macintosh, click the mouse down on the desired image and hold it until a pop-up menu appears. For Windows, click the mouse down with the right mouse button to see the menu.
  • Select Save this Image As... from the pop-up menu.
  • When prompted, save the file with an appropriate name and location (

    Composing Bitmaps for SURVEYWin
    You can use bitmap graphics in SURVEYWin to embellish a page or to use as response buttons. The bitmaps may not exceed 32 KB, but there are procedures you can use to create and use images within that 32 KB size. These procedures were tested using MS Paint and MS Word. Keep the graphic small. A graphic of 2.5 by .75 inches is about as large as you would want on a project screen. A graphic of 4.5 by 2.5 inches completely fills the screen. A graphic cannot be sized in SURVEYWin

The other half, of course, are devoted to hawking products, both real and imaginary, i.e., vaporware. In less unkind moments, I realize that the proportion of such sites is not really quite that high.

    Using Colors
    If you have already been to the tutorials about using the FONT and the TABLE tag as well as page attributes you will have noticed that HTML allows to set colors for text, links and backgrounds. In most of those pages I have referred to color with either a hexadecimal colornumber or a color name. Let's take a look what's behind all this:
    Colornames in HTML Tags
    There are three ways colors are referred to:
    By a Colorname
    You all know colornames: red, green, blue, white, yellow, and much more. It's the easiest way to assign color to some text or a background in an HTML tag. However, there are only 16 colornames which are understood by all browsers. Those are listed in the table below. All other colors should be referred to by using hexadecimal color values.
    By a RGB Color Value
    Remember the days in school when you mixed your colors using just yellow, red and blue? Any color value stated as RGB value includes the information about how many parts of those basic colors are needed "to mix" the specific color. RGB values are always given as number triplets like shown in the table below, each value can vary between and 255.
    By a Hexadecimal Color Value
    Every RGB value can be transferred into a hexadecimal value, and these are understood by the browsers. Each color part is given in a duplex of either numbers and/or letters which can have a value between 00 and FF.

    17. An Introduction To The Applications Of Color In Computer Graphics
    color makes the graphics more appealing, both because the data is displayed as thenecessary data used to model the data as graphics (composing the graphics).
    This page updated: January, 2001 Appendix 4: An Introduction to the Applications of Color in Computer Graphics [COLORREZ.RPT] [Began: 1989] [Printed: March 24, 2000]
    "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . . "[Lucas, 1977]. Thus begins the epic adventure that launched computer graphics into international acclaim. George Lucas captured the thrill of adventure using special effects and computer graphics to dazzle enchanted viewers. The company he formed to produce Star Wars went on to become the leading producer of films that use computer graphics [Industrial Light and Majic (ILM)]. Graphics were needed to make the data computers manipulate (produced) more accessible to the human mind. Computers use (create) immense amounts of data. Computer graphics help humans understand the data as information. Color was needed to enhance this process. Color makes the graphics more appealing, both because the data is displayed as information (more legible), and for psychological reasons that are not completely understood to date. Today, computers can produce graphics as immense and complicated as the data. Current research is in writing programs to limit the necessary data used to model the data as graphics (composing the graphics). Computer graphics were developed in the mid 60's, "a long time ago" to a computer, since these machines split the second into billionths to count the passage of time (nanoseconds). Computer graphics began with Ivan Sutherland, who developed the first program to allow a user to interactively draw graphics on the computer screen [paintbox?]. Marvelous as this process was, within a decade, Jim Blinn analyzed such things as the colors of the spectrum and how light is reflected and refracted on the surfaces of various shapes of polygons and coded it into computer programs. The value of Jim Blinn's contributions was epitomized when, Ivan Sutherland said, "There are only a dozen good people in computer graphics, and Jim Blinn is six of them"[Rivlin, 1986]. The pioneers wrote the programs that enable mere mortals to apply the rules of physics they encoded and produce computer graphics with relative ease.

    Lesson Four
    More Fun with Graphics
    A WWW page that is nothing but a solid block of text is, well, boring. Why bother? :) However, simply pointing to other people's images and including them on your page isn't enough either. Graphics and colors on your pages should make a "statement"they are part of the rhetoric, part of the message. They should enhance the readability, the visual attractiveness, of your page, of course, but they should also serve a purpose. Often, therefore, you will want or need to design your own images. Colors also convey messages. We all know that certain colors are soothing, others are energizingthere have been whole studies of the effect of colors. Colors on Web pages can also add to (or detract from) the overall readability of a page. Of course, you should keep in mind that with the wide variety of browsers and user overrides, whatever colors you add to your page may not be what the viewer actually sees. Nonetheless, you will probably want to consider using colors, background .gifs, and other visual elements as part of your rhetorical structure. But.... How?

    Section 1e: Curve Lying in a Surface; Plotting a Vase; Two Intersecting Surfaces Shannon Holland, , and Matthias Kawski,
    CoMaTh Conference, Stockton,CA, August 1995. 2000 Matthias Kawski This work was supported by the National Science Foundation through the ASU Foundation Coalition. Curve Lying in a Surface It is very common to draw a curve that lies in a surface. For elementary reasons (discretization, and interpolation, possibly even linear) we should not expect that we can nicely see the curve: restart; with(plots): hill:=plot3d(f,-3..3,-3..3,color=cyan): flat:=spacecurve([t,g(t),drop],t=-2..2,color=blue,thickness=2): high:=spacecurve([t,g(t),f(t,g(t))],t=-2..2,color=magenta,thickness=2): base:=plot3d(drop,-3..3,-3..3,color=green,grid=[2,2]): backlight:=[50,20,0.8,0.8,1]: Plotting a Vase ss:=spacecurve([rr(h(t))*cos(g(t)),rr(h(t))*sin(g(t)),h(t)],t=0..2*Pi,numpoints=100,scaling=constrained,color=blue): pp:=plot3d([rr(t)*cos(s),rr(t)*sin(s),t],t=0..3.5,s=0..2*Pi,scaling=constrained,style=patchnogrid,orientation=[33,80]): Two Intersecting Surfaces The problem of interpolated surfaces generated from discrete grids generally makes it very hard to get a good picture of the curve of intersection of two surfaces.
