 Color and Palette Information

All of the graphics in this collection use the non-dithering internet palette.

The lower palette will change the background color attribute of the upper frame unless the background image prevents changes (such as in this document).

The upper palette allows for the selection of a shadow cube from within the non-dithering palette. The bars, buttons and bullets on the site only have a 3 depth toning.

 Information on Button Functions

 File Folder
Takes you to your file cabinet which displays images you've saved in your file cabinet cookie.

Images may be added to the cookie via the '+' button that appears on image view pages. Images may be deleted from the cookie via the file folder using the '-' button which appears on file folder pages.

 Title Bar
This does nothing, but it does help you to know which section of the site you're in.

 Envelope
Opens www.byCarel.com contact information in a new window.

 Page Back
This is not the same as your browser's back button. It takes you back one entry in the page selection dropdown list.

 Color Back
This takes you back one color in the palette selection choices.

 Next Color
This takes you forward one color in the palette selection choices.

 Next Page
This is not the same as your browser's forward button. It takes you forward one entry in the page selection dropdown list.

 Get Hex
This gives you the hex values for the colors in the currently selected color cube. They are listed from darkest to lightest. These come in handy for specifying <BODY> tag elements that will match with the images selected.

 Get RGB
This gives you the RGB (red, green, blue) values for the colors in the currently selected color cube. They are listed from darkest to lightest. These come in handy for designing additional images in your graphics software that will match the images selected from this site. For information on how to use RGB values (or if you can use these values) with your graphics software, please consult your software's documentation.

 BGCOLOR
This is automatically set when you select from the BGCOLOR palette. It shows the current hex value that you would use in the <BODY> tag of your document.

Clicking on the BGCOLOR button will allow you to enter a specific background choice in either hex (e.g. FF0000 or 0000FF) or color name (e.g. red or blue).

 SiteMap
Opens up a new window and gives you the ability to navigate through the rest of the bycarel.com site in that new window. This is convenient for preserving current settings in one section of the site while looking for images from another section of the site.

 Terms of Use
This is the END USER LICENSE agreement and/or rules for using the graphics from the Essentials Collections. Answers to some FAQ'S (Frequently Asked Questions) are available in the Am I Complying with the Terms of Use? document.

 Interface Trouble Shooting

 Most troubles such as
 JavaScript Error Messages
 Prolonged Hourglass (wait state) on Cursor
 Failure to Move to Page Selected, Etc.
Are caused by refreshing, resizing or going back in your browser.

 These can be cured by
 First, selecting either the terms of use or this help page.
 Next, using your browser's refresh button.
You will lose most or all stored selection values when you do this, but it should end the troubles.

If troubles persist, please contact webby@bycarel.com with details of the troubles you are having with the javaScript Interface.
