How can I optimize my Web illustrations?

Opimizing Your Web Illustrations

If you are an illustrator, you know how crucial Web page illustrations are. Visitors to your Web site will either stay at your site longer and click through other pages of your site because of them, or they will click to another Web site because your illustrations take too long to appear or don't appear properly. The following are ways to optimize your Web page illustrations:

- Use appropriate colors
- Keep your lines thick in your illustration
- Your illustration should download quickly
- Your illustration should attract attention
- Your illustration should complement, not control
- Make your illustrations relevant to the Web page content
- Save your illustrations in the proper file format
- Protect all of your illustrations

First of all, thank you for such a lovely site and great tips for people like us, who are beginners in the fields of Illustration and Graphic Design.

I just have a quick question for you. I wanted to know how do you protect your work? Is there a site do we go to and submit our work, for protection? how does it work?

Thanks in advance!
