Hour 24. Photoshop for the Web

Hour 24. Photoshop for the Web

Wow! You're almost finished; this is the last chapter. You've learned enough to work effectively with Photoshop, even if you haven't yet mastered all the tricks and time-saving features. The rest will come as you do more work with the program. This final hour is devoted to one of the newest and best uses for Photoshop—putting your work on the World Wide Web.

You've "surfed" the Web with your favorite browser, Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. You probably have email and maybe even your own home page. But do you know what's really going on out there in cyberspace? First of all, although the Web is what you might call a virtual space, meaning that it creates the illusion of space and distance, it also exists in a physical space. It is comprised of computers called servers that serve files across networks that stretch around the world. The computers can be anything from supercharged SPARC stations to minis and mainframes—or a machine not unlike the one sitting on your desktop. These machines run software that can talk with your machine via what are known as protocols.
