What is a Wireframe?

This lesson will introduce you to the concept of a wireframe. There is no need to manually create a wireframe from designs when using Adobe Fireworks, but understanding the idea of a wireframe will help understand how Fireworks looks at a web page when creating the code for web designs during the graphic design to HTML and CSS conversion process.

Creating a Pop-Up Menu

See how easy it is to create a pop-up menu with Adobe Fireworks. Learn how to create a pop-up
menu using the Fireworks interface for the Destinations link in the navigation bar of a web page.

Preparing a PNG File for Export

Graphic design files can become laden with extra layers, and those extra layers can prevent
the conversion process from working correctly. In this lesson you'll see how to set up your
PNG file to avoid issues while converting from a graphic design into a web page.

Positioning with CSS

Video2Brain CSS Positioning Free Sample Lessons

Positioning with CSS

HTML tags define page content in the browser. Before you add CSS properties to a div tag, it is necessary to assign an ID to the div tag to tell the browser which div tag you wish to change. Once an ID is added to a div tag, CSS properties can be added for that div. In this lesson we will explore how to assign CSS properties to a div tag.

Exploring the Fireworks Web Workflow Project

Adobe Fireworks CS6 enables you to add additional features to the HTML and CSS files created when exporting a graphic design. In this lesson we'll take a look at the graphic design that will be used in this course and explore some of the features that will be added during the graphic design to HTML and CSS web page transition process.

Exploring CSS Positioning Trailer

CSS enables you to control the look and layout of a web page much more precisely than with HTML alone, but it can be time-consuming to learn. In this innovative workshop, Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs makes it quick and easy, walking you through the process of adding content to a web page and using CSS to position that content. You will learn CSS positioning concepts like the CSS “box model,” “floats,” and “clears,” and gain a deeper understanding of how HTML and CSS work together to create the look of your web page. By speaking the same language as the browser, you will learn to work with the browser to place content accurately and easily.

 Creating a CSS Rule for the Column

It will be much easier to see where the left div is located on the page if we create a CSS style rule for the div and add both a border and a width property to it. In this video we begin to build the style rules for the left div in order to control both the box and the content within the box.

Understanding the Float Property

This video demonstrates the float property and the two values available for this property in CSS. We will use a web page with three divs to play with the float property to demonstrate the CSS float property before we apply it to our web page for this course.
