Interesting stuff on PNG's, but it doesn't help me to resolve my first (and only significant) current issue, which is how to lock a text layer on top of an image layer and have the both move in sync, as the browser window is tightened down?

The answer to your question is CSS. Create an HTML tag for your text, set the background as the image layer you want to use with CSS and then type over it. If you want it to expand/contract with the browser window then set a % width on your tag using CSS again.

From the sound of it, you could have used either of two options, to 'save as' a PNG, or a Compuserve GIF.

FYI; I'm a 'CMYK'-guy, with years of traditional large-format photography experience. The most exciting thing about doing all of this for ourselves is *cutting out the middle-men!* Duh!, my friend Rod called yesterday when he heard I was stuck on my homepage, and he offered to help me for just $100.hr. "We might even have to go into doing stuff in the 'code layer,' said he...

(/duh.duh.duh/ hear the echo?)

Gif's are weird, compared to JPG's. Neither format are always going to work best according to the baseline rules of thumb. Let's say the 'picture' is from an HD video [about 7.5x14"] It's a 14MB -file. How the heck can you anticipate the best web-results when you have to choosee between 'lossy as hell,' and 'shortest load-time possible?'

Ostensibly, CS4 & 5 handle the process of crunching pictures differently, with a much improved method of down-sizing. Although .JPG may be the best know method for continuous-tone, we are suddenly forced to consider other creative solutions, perhaps opting for an 'illustration' instead...

OVERLAY LETTERING, (which we do day in and out for 4C-print,) needs to be hot -linked, which is certainly the main failure in the two preeminent examples seen earlier on this thread. It IS seriously cool that these layers were scaled differently, as if they were building a stage set.
