THE SECRET OF A WEBSITE WITH LIVELY GRAPHICS
I love graphics. I ENJOY MYSELF SO MUCH GOOGLING GRAPHICS to fill the 7,000 ARTICLES in the "LIFE 101" SEMINAR. (ALL YOURS FREE so you can attract ad Revenue with interesting pages.) How'd I start down this path? I once had a dream, years before I got online, a dream where I was publishing my own 'how to' books and using graphics from great artists. I saw the page in the dream and for the last FORTY years I have remembered the name of one of the illustrators, The artist was "JOSE LIMON". I have always been expecting, as I google up images, to find his name next to a graphic, or at a gallery. To me the Google search for graphics is a constant thrill. You should try it. Try any theme, then sum it up in a word and put gif or jpg next to it. Like crying-baby.jpg
My Mommy sends 5 million byte photos
of me and Granny's Computer jams!
5MILLION BYTES is too big FOR ME!
Graphics are definitely used these days as 'hello Mom, Granny. Take a look at the baby' But are you sending out those five million byte images to your relatives & chums? Their computer goes on the total BLINK while these gargantuan byte hungry monsters load. They open it over the course of an hour and NOW can see your child's forehead only it's as big as a dinner plate. They have to scroll for a minute to see his eyebrow. THE FIX? GET an image resizer IRFANVIEW free on line. A Croatian tekkie designed this GRAPHIC re-sizer and color-enhancer that beats PICASA... which MANY OWN ERGO USE but PICASA knew it was SO BAD THEY RETIRED THE DOWNLOADING OF NEW VERSIONS. IRFANVIEW offers software that will make up for your camera living in the dark ages. PICASA was an image / graphic program SUPPOSEDLY doing the same thing but it was reallllly hard to work. I've tried over ten yrs, never could figure out what to do with it. NOT intuitive, not IRFANVIEW where you get on IMAGE MENU, hit RESIZE and you give the robot your size perameter. KEEP the image under 500 bytes size height. around there width, too. Then, go to COLOR and brighten some dark photo so you can see what's in it! I tell you, IRFANVIEW is a TREASURE, it's so easy to use. So INTUITIVE. No need for a manual! (Nobody loathes instructions like moi!)
NEXT thing you want to do is PUT graphic IMAGES inside your letters or articles. I USED to do it with my trusty old NETSCAPE BROWSER, which in the 90's you downloaded FREE ONLINE. NETSCAPE not only had the best EMAIL client in cyberspace, but also has AN HTM COMPOSER in it. You can do everything you need to do to run a web business except SURF the net. I surfed with a mozilla browser. Not NETSCAPE. But it was great for Email and composing HTM files. And inserting GRAPHICS! Much more reliable than WORD which really screws up insertion of graphics into HTM FILES SO TODAY I DOWNLOAD FREE "SEAMONKEY" HTM COMPOSER.. INTUITIVELY EASY TO USE.
NETSCAPE was how I did the FIRST HALF of the 7,001 articles which I put online. Now you cannot surf the web with it, as it's vintage 1995, and my WINDOWS 98SE stopped surfing too, But today as a browser,for surfing I use GOOGLE CHROME. And an occasional switch to MOZILLA FIREFOX browser but CHROME IS WAY BETTER. SO to do graphics to a T what do we need? GOOGLE AS A HOME PAGE. And a quick jog to the IMAGES section. TO SORT the images, FIND THE ONE YOU WANT, but you CAN NO LONGER (since November 2018,) "SAVE" off of GOOGLE. They were told by GETTY IMAGES that they, the big GOOG, were making it too easy for us PEON webmasters TO CRIB GRAPHICS. No problem. Right side of screen says WANT TO VISIT THE SITE WHERE IMAGE IS? HIT THAT BUTTON! VISIT is the magic word. then RIGHT CLICK TO SAVE AS AN IMAGE or faster, COPY IMAGE ADDRESS, that goes right into the HTM ARTICLE with "INSERT" and Drop the URL IN, they demand you explain the image so say "CRY BABY" Or if you want to attract PEOPLE TO YOUR PAGE, "HOW NOT TO HAVE A CRYBABY CHILD."
And maybe while you're googling or seeking images, find a sprinkling of EMOJIS which are small in size,50to 100 bytes. AGAIN, visit the OTHER GUY'S SITE, don't grabbem from GOOGLE, SAVE to your hard drive, shoot them to your WEBPAGE thru the FTP software so that LATER when you are doin' an HTM article, you can stick those little guys everywhere. OR stick them in an EMAIL.To get some lovely EMOJIS, I just encountered MAZE GUY, a designer of emoticons, http://www.mazeguy.net/bigsmilies.html in case you want to use his lovely work. His page is more organized than any emoji page I googled and he invites use of his creations.My kinda NET CHUM!
1.) Download a free DOS FILE MANAGER, free software called ZTREE, so that you can build a tree directory in your c:drive The crying baby will go on one of my HOW TO RAISE CHILDREN articles. CRYBABY.JPG So the articles CRYING KIDS is now on my C: DRIVE and is an HTM file in my wordprocessor.
1. B) USE free FTP SOFTWARE. ONLY ONE I KNOW of can be DOWNLOADED FREE FROM CORE.COM It's what pushes a finished htm article to your website or blog. Two boxes. LEFT is your C DRIVE and its directories. RIGHT BOX is your website and all its present resident files.
2) So let's review IMAGE SNATCHING AGAIN. GO to GOOGLE, then hit IMAGES. Now, fill in the theme of what kind of picture you want. If you are looking for an unhappy, screaming baby for an article about good mothering, put that in,"Unhappy baby." or Screaming baby." "crybaby" CARTOONS are GIFS ---you hit JPG you get photos. The real deal. so write crybaby.gif to get a cartoon or pro illustration.
3.) RUMMAGE THRU ALL THE CHOICES.Out of all those crying babies, pick one. CLICK on image you like, You get its page. CLICK on the image again to get its source. THEN, and only then, RIGHT CLICK on image and save it to cache on subject. C:\babies as crying-baby.jpg or gif (which ever it is. Usually it's those two) THEN HIT THE BUTTON AT RIGHT SIDE OF SCREEN READING "VISIT WEBSITE" GO there, find the image and RIGHT CLICK on it. P.S. DO NOT KEEP THE NAME that website online has it as........ change the name so nobody does GETTY FRAUD to you. (Getty images threatens to sue you, it's a real hoot, they have lawyers who write you repeatedly. Careful with Rolls Royce, McDonald's, DISNEY and other big corporations. They're very jealous of their artwork too. They pay huge sums for their art. but name it OURBABY the CORPORATION CANNOT FIND IT.)Mickey Mouse gets named MIGUELRATON. Stuff like that.
So babe? You stole the perfect graphic. Now REMEMBER the new name you gave it, something intuitive like 'crying babe' and what directory you stuck it in. The thing goes by so fast, you won't remember which branch of your TREE it's in. C:\babies, right?
3.A. You may want to RESIZE it. If so, use IRFANVIEW GRAPHIC SOFTWARE, which you get online, free. Hit IMAGE and hit resize. Yesterday I got an old B&W photo of the LBJ swearing in with Jackie in bloodied suit. I was doing an article on JACK VALENTI who was in the background in the shadows, haunted stare on his face. The photo was too dark to see more than his beady eyes, so I used irfanview to bleach it. Staring into the guilty face of the two men who'd arranged death of JFK. Lyndon had never met him before but hired him earlier that week, met him that very day, took the Texan back to Washington with him, never let him go. Keep your enemies close but the members of your COUP death squad closer. So when REVVING UP THE COLOR ON KILLERS, Irfan view is major stuff, free online, download yourself a copy and go catch the guy who killed KASHOGGI.
4.) FILE TRANSFER TIME! I mentioned CORE. To be a blogger, you have to DOWNLOAD free FTP software, online. That stands for FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL. NOW, open the FTP software and go to C:\BABIES on the left side of screen, and your website DIRECTORY is on the right hand side. A DOUBLE CLICK ON LEFT SIDE WILL FTP the image crying-baby.gif to your website. The graphic is now in cyberspace. But nobody knows it's there yet, so ---
5) FINISH WRITING THE ARTICLE in your Word Processing software program, the text or word part, i.e. the ARTICLE. Then, STICK THE PICTURE in the article. Now, I never figured out how to work the image-sticking-in feature at MICROSOFT WORD which I got in OFFICE SUITE 2000. And again with every new computer, free use for a year only...But it's so LOUSY and over coded that I SHUN IT & I have never had the $ for a teacher for any of this. I can only do things that I can figure out by myself. So I use CORE a free FTP program and SEAMONKEY, a free HTM PROGRAM. EZ downloads. (ASK ME HOW TO USE IT WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD IT. astrology at earthlink net is Anita, that's me.
SEAMONKEY has the BROWSE NET choice and the SUCK UP ARTICLES or txt ONLINE FEATURE and the COMPOSER choice also at top, so it's a word processor with which you make HTM files. ALL MY WEBSITES LATELY are made on THIS SOFTWARE. LUCK IN LOVE, and GUERILLA CAPITALISM, the entire lot. GO TO THE INTERNET, GOOGLE FREE DOWNLOAD SEA MONKEY HTM COMPOSER for writing articles. AND FIREFOX AND BETTER YET, Google's famed, CHROME BROWSER. PERFECT BROWSER you put your GMAIL account in. It's small and comes into your machine fast. Boot it up. I USE THE EMAIL CLIENT as it's superb. And I use SEA MONKEY'S HTM composer for TEXT WRITING IN HTM and inserting graphics and for SAVING NET STUFF. I can turn a text file into HTM in a second, format it, add graphics and have it out on the web in twenty minutes. WITH GRAPHICS.
Now, hit the INSERT IMAGE button at top. Fill in the box it gives you with answer of where the IMAGE IS. it's at YOUR WEBSITE already, maybe called SCREAMER. GIF or CRYING-BABY.JPG, depending on which you chose for the final article.... http://www.mywebsite/screamer.gif --that is the imaginary URL of the graphic. Or maybe you want to borrow someone else's fine graphic, and accept the size that he has it.... put in HIS URL for that image. The advantage of saving the image to your cache is twofold: 1.) Once you 'own it' you can resize the image. 2.) Some images online can not be used by another website, so you have to pluck it, save it, rename it, then resize it, or retitle it, even, which I always do. And then send it to my own website. Again, use IRFANVIEW SOFTWARE, free from its CROATIAN DESIGNER, to do that. I have no skills and I was able to both download it and figure out its use.
NOTE: GOOGLE no longer lets you use GRAPHICS from their page. LIKE YOU TELL GOOGLEL GRAPHICS FIND ME LEOPARD.IT'll show you a lot of leopards but YOU NOW have to GO TO RIGHT SIDE OF SCREEN and find "VISIT THEIR PAGE". ZIP you go to that website, and THERE YOU CAN SAVE IT TO CACHE or even TIE TO IT, PUT THAT GRAPHIC'S U.R.L in your article in INSERT GRAPHICS. AND NAME IT AND EXPLAIN IT.
Remember, EVEN IF YOU VISIT THE PICTURE'S HOME, you have an option as to where to have your ARTICLE FIND the graphic. Leave it in cyberspace at another's website or put it on your own website. For a long time, I left the GRAPHIC IN CYBERSPACE at its own home, figuring the owner won't be taking it down. WHO TAKES ANYTHING DOWN? But lately, people do give up their website so I save them all to cache now. So when Netscape Composer asks me where is the image? I answer: http://www.masterjules.net/crying-baby.jpg. Then NETSCAPE COMPOSER asks you to hit the option, ORIGINAL SIZE. I say yes and it gives a triple menu of Text alignment Position (left center or right) with boxes that show different positions.
Congratulations; You just stuck a live link to the graphic in the article. IT doesn't look like a live link which that is right UP THERE WRITTEN OUT, no it is the actual GRAPHIC, it flips into the article! But now you triumphantly finish by shipping your entire article to your website with the FTP software. Then go in your browser, enter the article's name at the top: http://www.masterjules.net/jfkhit.htm and you will see the article and see where the graphics fell, and if they're not located correctly, re do it.
Ain't THE INTERNET GREAT? OH, one more thing. After you have published the article you must put a live link to it on your index page! For the screaming baby article it's http://www.masterjules.net/babiesindex.htm
