Can I run webHermes on my Mac (LINUX, etc.) computer?

Yes. webHermes runs on any computer that supports Macromedia Flash v6 or better.

When I press 'Upload' to attach a graphic nothing happens.

Pressing 'Upload' opens a popup window. If your system uses a popup blocker you may not see this window. Try turning off the popup blocker for pages served from www.ozonesoftware.com.

How do I add graphics?

To add a graphic to a webHermes abstract you must first save it to a file. Postscript and windows metafiles produce the best results. Many graphics packages can save these formats. Look for a format selection under "File, Save As" or "File, Export". Alternately, webHermes can also use .GIF, .JPG or .PNG files.

When the popup window appears, use the 'Browse' button to find the graphic file you'd like to attach. A few moments after sending the file, the webHermes 'Low Resolution Preview' display should update. Choose the "Preview" tab, and view the PDF preview of your abstract to see a high resolution version of your abstract and graphic.

What applications can I use to create graphics?

Graphics applications come in two flavours; Vector and Bitmap. Unless you are embedding photographic type material, use vector images.

Programs such as Photoshop, Photopaint, Photodeluxe, MS Paint, etc. all create bitmaps (an N by M array of dots). If you need to insert a graphic with continuous tones such as a photo or a scan use a bitmap program. Consider how large the graphic will physically print. If a picture will print 2" wide and 1" high, resample the image to no more than 200 pixels wide and 100 pixels high. More information simply bloats the abstract without improving the print quality.

Programs such as ChemWindows, ChemDraw, CorelDraw!, Adobe Illustrate and Macromedia Freehand create vector images. Vector images print the sharpest and create the smallest files. They are ideal for schematic type illustrations such as chemical structures, reaction schemes, equations, etc..
