Even though it’s been gaining popularity and support for the past couple of years, a lot of designers still stick to their usual collection of web safe fonts for the vast majority of their designs. On the rare occasion they do step out of their comfort zone and include a web font, they just go with a webfont subscription service rather than looking into DIY embedding or something like Google Web Fonts.
Spritemapper is an application that merges multiple images into one and generates CSS positioning for the corresponding slices.
Improve loading times. Only 10% of a webpage’s loading time is due to the actual page—the other 90% is spent downloading styles, scripts and images. By reducing the amount of images and better utilizing the connection, CSS spritemapping can reduce your website’s loading time.
Just plain old CSS. You don’t have to write any extra syntax to make Spritemapper work. Just define the directories of images you want spritemapped and use the CSS background declaration as usual.
