Fast Loading web designs
This is the number 1 tip that every web designer should follow. You
might design a web site that looks fantastic but few people are
going to see it if it takes a long time to load.
While designing a web site always think about how long it will take
to load. Try out our tips to build a great looking web site that also
loads fast. There are plenty of useful tips to follow in order to design
an effective and high-quality website.
But among those recommendations, one that is given high
importance and proper attention is to achieve fast loading website.
Provide an easy to use navigation system
This is one of the most important issues to consider when designing
a website. You need to ensure your visitors can find what they are
looking for easily.Most great looking websites either display their
navigation bar on the left or at the top. And since most people are
used to this type of navigation, it’s best to stick with it.It also helps to
include your navigation bar at the bottom of each page to save your
visitors from having to scroll back to the top.
Browser Compatibility :
Make sure your site is browser compatible. Your web site should look
good in Netscape as well as in Internet Explorer. Don't stop
designing your site as soon as you find that it looks great on IE.
Usually Netscape gives some problems, especially when you try
doing complicated HTML designs. But don't give up too soon, usually
with patience these problems can be easily fixed.
If none of the factors above work well enough for you, reducing the
image size is the most effective way in achieving a smaller file.
Beware that the loss in quality is one the downsides of this method. It
is the most suited solution if you want to pack some photos in an email
and send them. Keep the originals in the case you want to do some
printouts later. Once the resolution is decreased there is no way to get
the old photo back to the original resolution without noticeable quality
Minimize the use of images
Image format (jpeg, png, bmp, ...). For an optimized size of
photographs jpeg is probably the best alternative. Changing a
photograph to jpeg will make a big difference and will have minimal
impacts on the image quality since the jpeg format was tailored to
efficiently store color images.
- Parameters of the image format (most important factor here is the
compression ratio). Just by increasing the compression ratio, the size
of the file decreases considerably. Using a computer to re-compress
jpeg images is also a big leap in reducing the file size since the
parameters of the jpeg library used in digital cameras trade size for
memory usage and processing power. The computer has plenty of
memory and processing power so that the jpeg library can compress
Use of white space
Try not to clutter up your page with too many images, backgrounds
and colorful fonts. Again use the Keep It Simple principle by
minimizing the use of graphics and using a lot of white space. White
space gives a sense of spaciousness and overall neatness to a site.
Notice the white space in our site.
Design for all Screen Resolutions: A site that is easy-to-use always
encourages visitors to stay and read your content. For site with long
pages of content this is very crucial as the amount of scrolling required
is reduced. Suppose your site doesn't look good for a particular
resolution it is very probable that the visitor will close the browser
window feeling that the web page is not for their viewing. Designing
stretch layouts that fit any screen resolution ensures that you know all
your visitors see a visually appealing and professional site.
