I have now created the web page layout and the hyperlinks using Adobe Dreamweaver. I used a cascading style sheet to get the background colour, font, font size etc. The hyperlinks work and take you to the folders containing the work displayed in different media types.
I will plan, develop and produce a prototype web site, which will contain a portfolio of my work across a range of media. I will use minimal design, and the theme will be controlled by style sheet.
I collected 12 pictures, of cityscapes, from the Internet . I then modified provided HTML code to create a slider of pictures for a webpage. I was provided with a cascading style sheet (ccs) along with a Jscript file which is required for creating the slider. Editing the slider,in terms of the images that are shown, is pretty simple, I can add and remove easily and change the time that the images stay on the screen for, along with the transaction time.
Web page designers use a lot of video content to give their web pages a visual edge.
The flash player is widely used across the internet. The most known use for flash player is YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/ ). Flash player is commonly used as the video player on mobile sites for phones and tablets. Flash player can be adapted by the user to host different features that maybe compatible with the video, for example annotations, captions, video quality etc. The user also has the ability to increase the size of the video along with a full screen mode. There is a slider to navigate through the current video. A volume slider with mute is also present. All these options are easy to find and activate due to the clear and simple layout.
Quick time is another example of a video player that is commonly used. All apple products favor Quicktime this is mainly because it was created by apple. The player its self is also simple to use due to its clear layout. There is a slider for video navigation and sound. Buttons are used for playing, pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding and skipping back and forwards. But it does not have as many features that can add to video.
This is my example of an embedded audio player. It is embedded from Soundcloud. I just used the same track I made and used for audio acquisition last block.
Lots of web designers rely on audio to make web pages stand out. There are many different audio player in use across the web.
Soundcloud is a website that is dedicated to music and sound sharing. Users can upload, listen, comment and share from the Soundcloud website. It uses its own audio player which looks pretty good. It has a clear and simple layout keeping it easy to navigate and use. It has some useful and impacting features like the displayed waveform of the current track, comments at desired points of the tracks timeline, Built in sharing options through social media websites e.g. Facebook and Twitter. It also gives you a code to embed tracks into websites, as well as a WordPress code for easy sharing.
