Exercises

Estimated time to complete: 3+ hours


Part 1 – Adding links and images to an HTML page
Using the Smithsonian Education one-column web page you built in Week 03, insert 2 images, dummy (fake) text, and 2 links into the page. Below is  what I’d like the web page to look like when you’re finished.  You will upload a final_web folder with the HTML, CSS and images folder. Make sure you follow the correct file organization as discussed in the class notes. Here’s a link to a zip file with the two images you’ll need to complete this exercise.

Link the text to the following websites:
Sphinx: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphinx
Papyrus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus

Part 2 Complete the Final Project site map and a design comp for the home page. Please complete the sitemap and the design comp for the home page of the site you’re working on for your final project. (See full details about the Final Project on the “Final Project” page located in the drop-down menu for GD65.)

Please post the sitemap as a PDF and your design comp as a Photoshop file to the Dropbox on the eCompanion site. Please note: be sure to create a Photoshop file that’s 72 dpi and which contains images at this same dpi. If you don’t, the weight of the Photoshop file may get too big and will be difficult to upload to the Dropbox!)

When you upload your zip file to the Dropbox, please be sure to include your name in your file names. For example: yourlastname_assignment4.zip
