New Pictolink ™ technology makes your web site links more compact, informative, and effective!
Introducing the Pictolink ™ Dynamic Graphic Link Technology
A Pictolink ™ is a link to a web page using a graphic rather than a text representation. It is usually embedded in a rectangular "mosaic" of other Pictolinks. Unlike standard text and graphic links, which utilize a two-stage presentation model (notice the link and click to access the underlying web site), the Pictolink technology employs a dynamic three-stage model:
The Pictolink technology is particularly well suited to presenting multiple links grouped in a rectangular "mosaic" of arbitrary size and dimensions.
To get a quick idea of how the concept works, move the mouse over different Pictolinks in the sample mosaic at the right edge of this web page to view descriptions for each. Click on any Pictolink that interests you.
Pictolink technology can be used to make a group of links on a web page more effective. It is particularly well suited to implementing
The Pictolink technology offers significant advantages over traditional text and static graphic links on web pages:
The Pictolink mosaic dimensions (row & column counts), common pixel size of all Pictolinks in the mosaic, plus the components (images and text descriptions) of each Pictolink are stored on a Pictolink.com server. A web-based interface makes it easy for personnel with ordinary computer skills to change the Pictolink mosaic contents. No modification to the actual host web page is necessary to update the Pictolinks, This eliminates the need for a "webmaster" with specialized skills to maintain the Pictolink mosaic and its contents.
