Dreamweaver CS5 #4: Creating a Contact Page

Hey C-You Too Buddy!!!! You can take this page and shove it!

Those two statement pretty much wrap up how I feel about a contact page. But I stated in the deliverables of TheTaleofMatt that I would include a contact page. Its a good idea and a nice feature to have but setting one up is not so intuitive. But none the less I managed to pull it off just this morning. With one small catch!

Photoshop CS5 #1 – What the heck are layers?

Ok guys I’ve always heard everyone raving about what a powerful program Photoshop is and I’ve seen some pretty cool stuff done with it. But in all honesty my only experience with it was making a fake ID back when I was 18! I have no idea what version of PS it was but since I am 28 now, some quick math tells me 10-11 years ago! BTW the fake ID worked a few times 😉

You simply drag and drop pictures and elements (like forms) into the application and then tell Dreamweaver (or WYSIWYG) what you want it to do with it. Dreamweaver then simultaneously writes all the code for you.

Day 1 Update: Getting Set Up

Day 1 Update – 26 Days Remaining on Trial CS5

Ok so first thing is first. This is day 1 but in all actuality its day 4 because of a few reason. When I first downloaded CS5 I had not yet come up with this idea, Day 2 was spent formulating the plan and Day 3 was spent putting the pieces together and notifying the appropriated people of what the heck I was doing.

So, its already Day 4 (26 Days Left Remaining) and I have barely opened the trial software. But dont worry because we’ve already come along way towards our goal. So heres what I’ve done so far and Im sorry that not much of it has involved CS5.
