Web design tip on background and forground ~

A cool factor of your web site should not turn you away from this basic and obvious tip. Remember, it's easy for your visitors to press the back button on their i have found a few link which relate to how make your web site cool.

Use a contrasting color combination for the page background and the foreground text. Avoid bright colors as backgrounds . Try to test the clarity of your foreground text. View your page from a distance of 3 feet. If the text is readable use the color combination.

Use a seamless image instead of a large background image, because large background image, say 800x600, would be at least 30kb (optimized). A small seamless image would be much smaller. You can have seamless images that are a mere 3kb! Thus, small seamless images result in faster web page display. The seamless image is the image the left and right & top and bottom sides are welded so a particular side continues the information on the opposite one. From this web, it can teach you how to make it.

Web site navigation - importance and tips

Good web site navigation Tip 1
Always link the logo on a web site to the homepage.

Good web site navigation Tip 2
Place navigation system on the left or the top, just below the header. Do not try to design out of the box unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Good web site navigation Tip 3
Have consistent navigation throughout the web site. For example, do not have the navigation system placed horizontally on one page and vertically on the left in another. An exception to this rule can be the homepage which can differ from all other pages.

Good web site navigation Tip 4
In addition to linking the logo to the homepage, be sure to have a link called "Home", "Homepage" or equivalent in the web site navigation menu. Ideally a web site navigation menu consists of links to the homepage, "About Us", "Contact Us", "Site Map" and other important pages of the web site.

Good web site navigation Tip 5
A good site map and navigation menu on a web site will cut down the number of clicks required to move from one page to another. A thumb rule for good web site navigation is to keep the number of clicks from one page to another at 3.
