This book will show you how to combine the power of Adobe Photoshop and Macromedia Dreamweaver, both the premiere applications in their field and both recently updated.
The book's core purpose is to teach the fundamentals of designing for the web using Photoshop and Dreamweaver, through a combination of theory and practical examples, to show you how to create a visually appealing web site. It will start with a brief look at Dreamweaver and design theory, to lay the groundwork for what follows. Mirroring the professional process, it will take you through practical considerations, such as color schemes and navigation, then mock-up a site in Photoshop - this is the point where a commercial project would be taken to the client for approval. Next, the site will be constructed in Dreamweaver, and you will be taken through all the steps needed to create a fully functioning site, as well as getting it online.
The end goal of this book is to enable the reader to create a visually stunning, fully functional and aesthetically pleasing website. The combination of web design theory and clearly worked examples will allow you to go away and experiment for yourself - more aware of the potential complexities involved in building a website and better positioned to do it more efficiently than before. The outcome: a great visual and well-designed site.
The structure of the book aims to mirror the way professional web designers create their sites, as well as providing the background theory that you need to be aware of, in order to create a well-designed, functional and aesthetically pleasing site in the most efficient way possible. Everyone wishes to create their own individual site and together with the practical exercises, advice is offered about how you might wish to personalize the examples given. You do not need any previous experience of Dreamweaver to complete exercises in the book, but we have assumed a small amount of previous experience with Photoshop.
