    Question Question re: Printed documents as graphics to webpage?

    Hello. I am relative new to HTML. I am helping a friend create a very simple webpage containing her resume of printed documents. She will then upload to server when she gets back to work at her job in Norway for public display. These hardcopy documents total about 20 pages and are referrals from former imployers containing their letterheads and signatures. We wish to show these as they are. I have tried scanning the documents and have saved them out as jpeg files in the smallest and lowest quality file possible. When entered into the html code, download time to the browser is extremely slow. Is there a quicker and better way of doing this? Thank you. Dave

    I would try saving them in gif format as it is usally a smaller size and can still be crunched from there. jpg is better used for photos with fine detail and numerous colors.

    oh...welcome to the forums

    The fastest way would be to scan the text in OCR mode to convert it to text for a normal .html page presentation - duplicating the font of the original as close as possible. Then, create images for just the graphics portion (letterhead) of the page to place at the top or side in a <TABLE ...> configuration.

    That page has a very basic graphic image that holds just one marquee line from my formal letterhead - the address portion of my letterhead not showing for confidentiality purposes is what motivated doing it that way instead of just showing the entire top portion as an image.
