GRDSN 172 Dreamweaver I

Project 3

In this project I will learn to:

  • Use multiple techniques to add images to Web pages
  • Resize images to fit page areas
  • Resample images to fit page areas
  • Use CSS to control background colors and images for specific page elements
  • Insert a Flash animation file, a slideshow, and a video file
  • Add a page favicon

HOW TO PROCEED

Read and work through the project in the Against the Clock book. You will use the sample files provided by Against the Clock.

The files are also stored on the server in the graphics labs, AVA-Disciplines/GRDSN/Against_the_Clock. If you work outside the lab, files can be downloaded by following the instructions on the inside back cover of the book. If you are checking out books from the Library the online code may not work, so be sure to save files from our lab server.

You may find it convenient to copy the files onto your personal storage area.

The Exercises

Complete the exercises for the Crowe Photography site. All the links within the pages, and the Flash files, should work; so test your site with a web browser before you turn it in.

Problems!

On page 137 you are asked to view Flash in Live mode. Even after installing the newest Flash player the Flash contents may not play. In this case, check your work in a browser.

The Copy Dependent Files may not show after the browser viewing.

On page141, step 4 the menu may display Flash Video, not FLV.

What to turn in.

Crowe Photography page

Create a compressed .zip archive of your folder. The zip files are a very safe way to move collections of files over the internet, and they usually reduce the file size.

Use the Macintosh Finder’s File>Compress “filename”, or Windows’ “New>Compressed (zipped) Folder” tools to create a .zip archive of the folder. Remember to save a copy of your work folder onto your personal storage device.

Rename the .zip file to 172-3-your name.zip.

Attach this .zip archive to your Canvas turn-in area for this project.

Take the quiz

Go to the Assignments section in Canvas and take the project quiz. You are allowed to retake the quizzes only twice. You might review and print the quiz before starting the project and locate the answers as you work.
