Running images to the edge... -

I have seen some websites ie. (http://www.atkearney.com) that get their images to run to the very top or the very side of the screen. I know that a background will do this - but you do you get the images to?

Any ideas?

This, as far as a two second look at the code tells me , is just a table cell with a picture aligned 'top'. The key words being:

quote:<td width=610 height=25 align=RIGHT valign=TOP>
. That should do the trick Brooke.

As a side point, I like the effect they have achieved with a background picture being covered with a transparent GIF. Nice.

BTW: I will have that article you want on the site this week, sorry about the delay.

The following BODY tag may help you achieve this effect:

<BODY LEFTMARGIN=0 TOPMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0>

This will efectively eliminate the margin around your page...LEFTMARGIN and TOPMARGIN are for IE, MARGINWIDTH and MARGINHEIGHT are for Netscape. Either browser will ignore the others' tags.

Hey Brooke!

I looked at your site and I like it. It looks very professional. Why do you want to run your images to the edge? The only way I know how, would be use a table, like already said. But I think it looks more professional if you don't, like it does now.

Hey Brooke; all,
I'm back from my short trip to France, suitable drunk and tired to get back to work

Have you got the desired effect working? Can we see it in action...

Curtis,

Thank you so much for the compliment! It's so nice to hear those things!

To tell you the truth it is not for me, it's for a client. I have been working on a design for them and thought this design element would work nicely.

Thanks again!
