|A Brief "How-To"|
The panoramas displayed on these pages are a visual compromise: they have
been reduced and compressed considerably so that the images are about
100KB, which allows them each to download in about thirty seconds over
a 56K modem. On a network or cable modem, the images should download in
just a few seconds.
The wealth of visual detail in the bookstore demands a certain level of image quality; as such, the filesize and image size chosen by the creator of this page were carefully weighed so as to yield the best possible image given the speed limitations of the internet.
