April 5 Web Design Meeting — Menu Icons

The next meeting of the PACS Web Design Special Interest Group will be this Saturday, April 5, in the 9-10 hour. Our topic this month will be “Menu Icons.”

To add icons to the tiles of the navigation menu that we have been working on, we will use a technique known as the CSS sprite. We will first go over the CSS background properties that underlay sprites. I have some examples that should make the concepts clear. Then we will apply them to our sample. It will be fun and informative, and pretty cool when we are done.

And be sure to check the Groups page on the PACS website at for information on all the other sessions scheduled this month. For those not attending PHP and HTML, please note that the Photoshop SIG will have a guest presenter, professional photographer and web designer Greg Cazillo.
