Creating graphics for the Web is often less fun than pulling teeth and twice as painful. In this issue, guest writer Cynthia Baron takes a detailed look at BoxTop Software's ImageVice and explores how to make images both look great and download quickly. Also this week, we report on rumors of the Newton's demise, Emailer 2.0v3, the final 56K modem standard, and reader responses to Apple's most recent upheavals.

  • MailBITS/16-Feb-98
  • Emailer's Last Gasp Update?
  • Apple Retreat or Focus (Followup)
  • Putting the Squeeze on Color: ImageVice 1.1
