Re: What is the purpose of creating sliver images?

From: Daniel Piechnick


Hi Emily. The idea of sliver images is that they repeat endlessly, and fill up the whole width of the screen. If I were to make a 625 pixel header image, it would be about the right size for a 640x480 screen, but on larger screens, it would be too narrow. To fill in this undetermined amount of space, I use a repeating "sliver" image.
