Lydia Platts Task 6Website annotations1. LogoI made my logo by both Microsoft Word and Fireworks, using Microsoft Ifound the image of headphones. I then copied and pasted this image intoFireworks; once I had the image into Fireworks I enlarged the image andbegan to add text. I wanted the text on the logo to stand out from the rest of the website so instead of having it century gothic, which will be the general text font, I chose white, size 66, freestyle text font. My reason for choosing white as the text colour was so the text stands out from the background colours, with the logo being seen it means that people will be able to recognise it when they next see it. The logo will be placed in the top left hand corner of every page on the website.2. Navigation BarThe navigation bar was made using Fireworks. To create the bar Iused the rounded rectangle shape tool and made four identicalshapes and placed them next to each other. I then filled theshapes in black, once I had done this I added text. Using the texttool I added text onto every shape with the appropriate pagename, the text was white, size 70 and Freestyle text font. My reason for choosing black and whitefor the colour scheme was because I wanted the navigation to be made clear to the viewer againstthe background. The navigation bar will be positioned at the top of every page on the website.Navigation bar hotspots The navigation bar was saved as an image and then inserted on the website on Dreamweaver, as I wanted the navigation bar to link to the website pages I added hotspots to the image which links you to the appropria te page. Iadded the hotspots by selecting the image,and then the hotspot tool, dragging thehotspot across the area I wanted, the hotspot tool then gave me options at the bottom of the pageto where I wanted to hotspot to link, so I selected the appropriate page.3. Still images I have added images to my website throughout, my reasons for adding images onto the website was to make it look more appealing and inviting as if the website was just text it could possibly put people off visiting. I added images by going to‘insert’ and then ‘image’, this then brought a dialog box up with a selecting of pictures and from this

The options Ichose were on a loop, no controls, a slide delay of 4, auto play and 3 images.6. Roll over images To make my roll over images I went to Insert, Image objects and the Rollover Image, when I selected this, a dialog box came up giving me the option to browse for the two images I wanted to use for my rollover image.
