Intermediate Web Design with Adobe Dreamweaver & Photoshop


Intermediate Web Design with Adobe Dreamweaver & Photoshop

About the course

This is for people with an interest in web design but with little formal experience of using Dreamweaver and other CSS-based web design tools.

Ideally, you will have a Level 1 Dreamweaver qualification, but solid experience in computing, website management and some experience in Photoshop will all be considered.

You will start in Photoshop by creating basic website elements: banner, logo, navigation. You will then use the slice tool to separate these objects into small files and then re-build the whole layout in Dreamweaver using div tags & CSS. You will then save this Master Page+ as a re-usable template, using editable and non-editable regions where appropriate to add and manage content.

Course content:

Photoshop: Canvas Size, Resolution, Rulers & Guides, Colour, Layer FX, Text, Free Transform, Slice Tool, Save for Web.

Dreamweaver:Properties palettes, Defining a site; creating new pages; adding and formatting content; creating and formatting hyperlinks; adding page structure using div tags; creating and editing CSS; saving a page as a re-usable template, adding and managing jQuery content, publishing a website.

Assessment is by coursework and occasional practical examinations.

The course will give you the skills and experience needed to build your own professional website and prepare you for a longer/higher level course if desired.

Destination: Studying for a degree in Diagnostic Radiography at Portsmouth University

Samira Abdi was born in Somalia and grew up in Ethiopia. As a child she wanted to become a doctor as she had a natural desire to support the many people in great need in Somalia. She then joined her family in London and went to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School, where she completed her GCSEs. Samira enrolled at City and Islington College’s Centre for Lifelong Learning and re-took most of her GCSEs and then progressed to the Centre for Applied Sciences to study medical science.

“I love science and my goal was to go to university. I needed a lot of determination, but also the support of my teachers. The facilities and equipment at the College’s Centre for Applied Sciences were impressive and I was able to learn so much. I love physics, anatomy and physiology and I really enjoyed the dissection experiments we did.”
