I’ve been redesigning my website and I have a few questions as the next iteration of it nears completion.
To bring you up to speed, I designed the entire site in Photoshop, switched to image ready and sliced it up making a table, and then spit out the final html. I did some other things, but the point is that my site is just a bunch of images, there is no text! I ask this because I’m trying to figure if file size is ok. The first version consisted of roughly 45 images (buttons, logos, etc) and weighed in at about 135kb. The redesign is physcially bigger, with a few more buttons, which after slicing up generates about 75 images and is about 230kb.
The redesign is actually simpler with solid websafe colors behind the button lettering, instead of what is there now, and I was actually surprised that the file size was larger then the current site.
I could only find some crappy sites with outdated info, telling me about this new technology called DSL and such. Anyone have some advice that would be helpful? I figure a quarter of a meg for a website seems pretty svelt, am I correct?
Lastly, I opened my site, and opened CNN.com, and according to the task manager, CNN was hogging more k.
As always thanks in advance.
