    Hello readers, Today in my blog I will discuss about a new topic related to images i.e Sprite images.

    As in a web page it includes number of images whether small or even it could be icons or the buttons which basically takes a long time to load and generate requests form the multiple servers.

    So , now basically to reduce for improving the loading time of a web page and which therefore effects the over the performance of a website.

    Define Sprite what it is ?

    Sprite are basically two-dimensional images which are made by combining multiple small images into one larger image with a defined X and Y coordinates.


    Advantage Of Using Sprite Images :-

    By using Sprite images , the hover image gets displayed immediately whenever we place the mouse pointer over it , since all images are combined within a single image that basically results into a smooth hover effect while if we will place the mouse pointer over a non-sprite image , it would take some time to display the hover images because firstly it would take time to load as requested from the server .


    Creating Sprite Images :-

    We can create Sprite Images Using various CSS Sprite Generator which are available online easily and are easy to use .

    These CSS Sprite Generators allow us to upload multiple files and therefore generates a Sprite Image from them.

    Other than this , the Online Generator also provide us with the CSS code basically the background – position value , height and width with the X and Y coordinates for each image which anyone targets.


    Displaying a part of image from a Sprite Image :-

    With the help of CSS property we can also display a part from the whole Sprite Image whichever we need.

    With the help of background-position property it makes our work easy for positioning the required image at the right place whenever we need.

    The Background-Position property basically sets the starting position of a background-image .

    By default , the background-image is placed at the top-left corner of an element but we can change the its value as required .

    We can adjust its value vertically and horizontally including the top, bottom,left and right directions as required.


    Conclusion :-

    Hence, We can easily use and understand the use of Sprite Images in our Web page.


    Note :- Sprite Images will be displayed on all modern browsers such as on Firefox 7.0.1, Chrome 15.0, Internet Explorer 9.0 , Safari 5.1.1.
