Photoshop to Dreamweaver

First I logged on to Moodle and downloaded the image of the website. I do not have a reference for this image because the tutor supplied it. You can see it is made of lots of different layers.

I use the slice tool to make a box around all the elements. If I want to adjust the size of the box I use the slice select tool.

Here is how the image looks now that it has been sliced in to sections.

Then I clicked file > save for web & devices.

I clicked on one of the squares. I choose jpeg…

…and I clicked save.

I clicked new folder. I called it welcome page and clicked create.

I clicked HTML and images and…

…clicked save.

I then duplicated the webpage file and renamed it to make the second page.

I then went to where I had saved the work.

I right clicked on the folder > open with > firefox.

This is how it looks in the browser.

I opened Dreamweaver. I clicked on portfolio.html

I clicked site > new site.

I then chose the root folder.

Here is how it looks in Dreamweaver.

I then opened the duplicated welcome-page file as well.

On the second page I clicked on the green box and hit the backspace button. This made the picture disappear.

Then I made a new picture to replace the one I just deleted. I made a new file in Photoshop using dimensions I got from Dreamweaver.

I then saved it. I should have saved it in the root folder which is the folder called ‘Welcome Page’.

I made a quick and simple design.

File > save for web and devices.

I clicked save here.

I clicked save.

On the second page I then inserted the image to fill the blank space. Insert > Image.

I clicked on my picture and clicked choose.

I clicked yes. This error message popped up because I failed to save the picture in the root folder. The folder called ‘Welcome Page’.

Then a box popped up and I typed in a description of the image.

This is how it looks now with the new, inserted image.

I clicked on this link in Dreamweaver.

The name of the image appears in the source field.

I then clicked on the target and dragged the cursor over to right on to portfolio.html

I then clicked on the Home slice. The name of the image appeared in the Source field.

I clicked the target and dragged the cursor over to the right on to welcome-page. Welcome-page then appears in the Link field.

File > save

File > Preview in Browser > Safari

The webpage now looks like this. I clicked around to make sure it worked.

In Photoshop I turned off the visibility of the upper layer. This made the image underneath visible.

I took the slice tool and I drew new slices over the links so that when I saved the file I would have an image for when the button was rolled over and for when it wasn’t.

Then I was able to choose the Slice Select Tool,Then I right clicked on the slice using the slice select tool. I choose the option Edit Slice Options.

A box popped up where the name could be changed to something descriptive.

I typed in Home_on.

Then I did the same for portfolio…

…and for Contact.

File > Save for web and devices.

I clicked save.

I clicked the option HTML and Images. I clicked save.

I clicked replace.

I selected and deleted the image.

I then clicked Image Objects > Rollover Image.

I selected Home_off.gif from the list and clicked Choose.

I saved again.

I then did the same for the Portfolio_On.gif

I selected the original image and the new, rollover image from the list and clicked Ok.

File > Preview in browser > Firefox.

This is how it looks.

I rolled over the link called Portfolio and it turned white.

Using the svBuilder

I clicked on New Gallery.

I dragged the three cloud files on to the ‘Add Images’ space and they appeared on the right. I changed the caption of the files to a different name which would be seen by the viewer.

Size of webpage, image source and image sizes are the other options that can be changed here.

I clicked the ‘Customise’ button. The options on the left appeared. I changed the text colour to purple. I clicked ‘Publish’.

Gallery height, gallery width, background colour, text colour, frame colour, frame width as well as the title of the gallery can be edited. The layout of the page can also be edited.

I clicked save.

Here you can see the changes I made.
