|The FlashR based website that we will create during this series can be used as an online portfolio or catalog for a professional artist or crafter. Besides a copy of Flash MX 2004, you will also need a few other things.|
Mockup of the Website
The finished website will be 550 pixels wide by 450 pixels high. It might be helpful if you create a mockup of the website similar to the two below. I used PhotoshopR to experiment with the placement of text and images for the two major webpages; the homepage and a content page.
You can import images of different formats into Flash but during this project we will be using images in the PNG format in order to retain the transparent areas in the images. Below is a list of the images and suggested sizes.
You will need to decide on a color scheme before we begin to build your website. You should have a background color and one or two accent colors that we will use for text colors.
