In recent years, many web designers try to implement almost everything using html/css than to use the image.
First rough example might be a button. In one case implemented using sprite or individual images, in the second case with html, that is, using only code.
The second example. So
I implemented the animation of the water flow from the tap on the html/css using only a picture of water that moves against the background and creates a very realistic effect. Also, this shell can be completely drawn in Photoshop and paste the picture, but only the animation to implement into html/css.
The third example. More complex and serious. The website "Thematic media"
. A Flat design is easier to insert pictures in the background section. But the same thing can be created. Yes, it is more difficult.
So, first you realize like. Second, what are the positive and negative sides you see in different cases. Maybe you think it's just nerd stuff, let people load the page a little longer, but to implement this layout is not valid. Welcome any opinions.
PS we are not Talking about beauty. Naturally, complex designs on the mark up on a div-Ah items, we are talking about simple flat designs where this is possible and not too difficult to be realized.
