Week 4–Html & CSS coding


What a week.  This week was the start and slight refresher on html coding.  Yeah, I remember why I do not like coding.  But, it’s something I have to learn.  Still; not my fave.  Also learned how to create CSS.  Very specific and time consuming.  I know now that the style sheets allows for easier editing of websites, giving the ability to not have to change the html pages.

I learned that there are three layers: presentation( how the site will appear), content ( shows what information is on the page), and behavior (real-time interaction for the page.)  Also updated banners again.banner01revised_updated_2-cutz.fw


Week 2/3


OMG… The last two weeks have been crazy.  Week 2 in Web was learning about CS6 Fireworks, Filezilla (the new bane of my existence for those who remember for early posts on Illustrator.), color theory and what different colors may represent with websites.   Yeah, fun program(Fireworks).  I’ve gotten ok with it.

Then onto week three.  Yeah still working…almost done. (one day more)  But I made pretty banners, my fave is really this one

banner01revised-cutz.fw.  I think I did really well, maybe shifting somethings but looks good.  Will update more later.


Web Design Week 1 Summary


The first week of Web Design has been interesting.  Mostly a refresher for me with the work on  FTP protocols and the history of Markup.  The lectures on the background and terminology helped me understand and review information (such ad HTML coding) that I have learned in the past.  As for coding in and of itself, I know very,very, very basic coding which I learned on my own back in the late 90’s.  FTP or File Transfer Protocols is one way that very large files can be transferred between computers on a network.

The history of Markup gives an somewhat  in-depth understanding of the history of HTML and how webpages are built using code or “tags” for each element.  It also explains the difference between HTML, XHTML and their evolution’s which continue to this day.

Looking forward to trying to get  all the lessons done in Lynda.com.

Relearning how to actually work in Photoshop again…..


I started my internship this week with a company in Crownsville basically creating product mockups from artistic works.  I haven’t work a lot in Photoshop recently and rarely at all on a regular basis and with the old saying “you don’t use it, you lose it,” is true.  I got to spend the week relearning Photoshop on a daily basis.   I got it.  There are still some things I need to work on still, but hey,I’m there to learn.  I’ll be fine.
