Project – A Web Gallery.
I have been working on a web gallery for some time so this exercise gave me the push I needed to add some images and update the Look of the website.
I wanted the website to be simple, understated and easy to use. I did not want lots of banners and adverts. I chose the name GJCIMAGES and purchased the name from Go Daddy, a website building service.
You add the images and the computer helps you to set out the pages.
I picked some of my and favourite images to add to the site so people can see what my pictures are like. I have not at this stage filled out the About me page due to un-related matters. I also added a contact me page so people can email me.
The course notes suggest the following:-
- What is the purpose of the website?
- Images must come first.
- Keep it simple.
- Offer a limited number of clicks. (My wife agreed with this, she hates complicated websites)
- Make it searchable.
- Get other people’s opinion.
Here is a screen shot of the Home Page. (The images move across the screen)
19 medium-sized images roll across the screen, If an image is selected it is automatically enlarged. I picked the smaller images first so that they load and move quickly across the screen.
How were the images chosen?
- Colour Images
- Black and white images.
- Some showing that they had been altered in Photoshop.
- Landscape Images
- General Images.
I would hope that the selected images would give the viewer a good selection to look from.
Each image was sharpened for Internet use (I did this after completing the sharpening exercise!) and cropped to give a nice tight view.
Does the website show my best images? Hopefully yes, is the website simple to use with few distractions? Again , yes.
I will now let as many friends know about the website and see what they think.
The address of the site is:-
Please let me know what you think?
