gimp_logo.jpg
Here is a quick checklist to make sure you have everything in for Assignment 06. For this assignment:

Put your First name, Last Initial, and Period on EVERY graphic.
Upload a .ZIP file with ONLY gallery web pages and .JPG images.
Link your gallery, with .JPG files, to your personal homepage.
Cite sources used for each image in the gallery.
Complete the Survey found as part of the gallery web pages.
**DO NOT turn in .XCF files for any reason. Keep them in your backup please.** 🙂

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Notice that the title for the course “Web Page Design” uses the word DESIGN. Anybody can put up a web page, but not everybody ends up with a “good” site. With that in mind, I offer the following links:

(1) The Web Design From Scratch site has a great page discussing “Current Style In Web Design”. Check out what good web design looks like HERE.

(2) A classic of web design is the site Web Pages That Suck (sorry, I didn’t name it). Check out what bad web design looks like HERE.

(3) Finally, I will be talking a lot in Intro To Web Design about why graphics are a BAD IDEA for the background of a web page. See an example of how ugly this can make a web site look HERE (try reading the text quickly).
