As promised to my recent class at Cecil College, here are some learning resources. This resource page will stay published and grow as I gather more information on the subject. All the best!
Visit http://www.creationengine.com/html/p.lasso?p=18401 and look up the "Dreamweaver CS5 Student & Teacher Edition Windows." Provide academic proof by scanning your Registration Form used to sign-up for Cecil College Dreamweaver class to create a jpg file, which they instruct you to send by email; or fax your registration form to the number they provide. They will not sell the software at the discounted price unless you present academic proof. The cost is $178.95 plus $10 for ground delivery.
Photo Resizer (http://webresizer.com/):
This free web tool is a quick an easy way to reduce the file size and dimensions of individuals photos before posting them on your website. If you want to reformat batches of photos, use Mac's iPhoto or watch the utorial below to see how it can be done using Powerpoint.
Create a Fav icon
Use any picture cropped to a square shape as a basis for a favicon.ico. Add the file to your Google site Attachments to have it displayed in the web browser tab along with your site page name.
Add audio to a traditional HTML page
To add audio files (no background music) that will play on traditional HTML website the audio must be embedded (wrapped) in a shockwave file. Web Audio Plus does a nice job helping you create those files. It's $37 from the creator's website or free from download.com. Watch this 10 minute tutorial to become a pro at this.
