Bridge the Gap Between Graphic Design and the Web
Sometimes the most difficult part of creating a website is a step that is often overlooked: converting a graphic design into HTML/CSS files to be used on the web. In this workshop, expert web developer and trainer Candyce Mairs shows you how to use a design created in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements as the basis for a website created with Dreamweaver. You’ll learn how to “slice” graphic design for conversion, optimize and export your images for the web, and plan how you are going to organize your website. These steps can be shaped by making a web design questionnaire or by going off a list of requirements. Then, as the course moves into Dreamweaver, you’ll use HTML and CSS to create web pages, add content, and format and position that content. Finally, you’ll see how to test your pages in a variety of browsers to make sure you get the best results. If you feel like that is a lot to take in, it can be to someone who hasn’t dealt with web design and development before. If you feel like you might want to have someone else/another company help design your website so you know that it is running smoothly and looking the way you want it to be, you can contact companies such as Big Gorilla Design to discuss your vision for your web design. Always do what’s best for you and your business in getting the word out.
