A gaming site, a portfolio site, an information site: Each requires a home page, but each of those home pages requires disparate elements and approaches. How to Wow: Photoshop for the Web walks you through the process of designing each, plus 15 other navigation, animation, and automation projects that show you how to add wow to your Web pages with Photoshop-created graphics. Just like your favorite cookbooks-the ones with short, clear-cut instructions and mouthwatering photos of the delectable concoctions-this book identifies challenges, provides simple recipes for overcoming them, and plugs in inspirational photos of the glorious results. Part 1 takes you through a range of navigation, animation, and automation projects (creating rollover navigation, building animated slide shows, producing a dynamic Flash banner, and more), while Part 2 walks you through the steps entailed in creating home pages for gaming, portfolio, and information sites. Each project explains how to create a lush graphic element, while sidebars and glossaries provide the low-down on important underlying principles. A CD includes the lesson files and image assets required to complete the book's projects.
