When Lynda wrote Designing Web Graphics, she was on the faculty of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Well, this book was so well received that she has become an industry unto herself. This is the third edition.
Yes, the first book was published in 1996, and that is decades past in Internet time. But here is the latest edition. Lynda understands that most artists who are designing Web graphics are aiming at the common user. We want to design something that can be seen by everyone on AOL, as well as those people who haven't updated their browser from version 3.0. This is the bible that tells how to build small, viewable online files from your beautiful artwork.
