How to locate, download, and work with Internet graphics, with special coverage of the World Wide Web. In this witty and informative book, Steve Rimmer demystifies Internet graphics as only he can. Everyone from rank beginner to seasoned cybernaut can learn from this comprehensive guide all aspects of working with Internet graphics, including downloading, assembling, manipulating, and uploading your own images, and exporting downloaded graphics to documents. Admittedly, working with Internet graphics can be complicated. But as Rimmer says, if you can operate a word processor, you can work with graphics from the Net. All you need is modest hardware, Internet access, and this guide, which comes with a CD-ROM containing special tools to help you work with downloaded images, including Graphic Workshop for Windows, GIF Construction Set, QuickShow, and GraphSaver. Filled with time-saving tips and logically organized for ease of use, The Internet Graphics Toolkit is like two books in one. Part I provides you with a complete tutorial on working with graphics. Topics covered include graphics by Usenet and e-mail, World Wide Web and FTP sites, archives, Macintosh and PC graphics files, graphics and bitmap file formats, movies, and much more. Part II lets you sample the incredible variety available on the Net by supplying a listing of graphics resources arranged alphabetically by subject. Handpicked by Rimmer, these sites will appeal to your sense of fun and adventure... The Andy Warhol Museum, Deep Space Nine, The Daily Bikini, Internet Movie Database, Netscape Hall of Shame, Web Voyeur, and Wentworth Gallery, to name a few.Review:
"Rimmer does an outstanding job explaining how and when to use graphics, and more importantly, he guides you through the process of acquiring them via FTP, etc. The section on graphic file formats is top-notch, covering common formats as well as those that are more esoteric and less frequently encountered. "Some Graphic Resources on the Internet" led me to over 70 sites, not to mention the Rimmer's CD of Graphic Workshop for Windows that is included with the book. I can't pan this book; it is just too good." -- Database, 12/96
"Rimmer has created a highly enjoyable look at the world of Internet graphics./#./#.the work is informative, readable and recommended." -- Internet Reference Services Quaterly, 3/97
