Adobe Dreamweaver
There is a maximum of 2 students so you know you'll get the attention you deserve. We’ve been teaching Macromedia Dreamweaver for designing web pages and automating production for over four years, so our instructors are well experienced. Click on a button to easily import images, Flash animations, rollovers and tables. Create imagemaps with hotspots. Add links to other pages or other spots on the same page. Import photos, artwork, or Flash animations. Add a form for receiving orders over the Internet. Insert horizontal or vertical navigation bars. Lean how to open a new browser window that's a specific size. You'll see how to upload a complete web site or just one altered page. This class usually sells out, so register today. Includes Dreamweaver: One Step at a Time book with 200 pages.

Adobe Flash
Because of our small classes, we can be more flexible. We have the latest version of Flash, as well as the previous. We'll teach whichever version students prefer. Learn to draw with Flash's vector drawing tools and create animations including spinning, rotating, moving, and zooming logos. Make photos fade from one into another. Add sound and music to buttons, movies, or frames. Create rollover buttons and ActionScript of buttons, objects, and movie clips. Similiar to the multimedia application Macromedia Director, Flash uses a timeline with frames and layers to create movement. Learn to create mouse trails so a logo falls from the mouse when you move it across a web page. Add interactive buttons and text input boxes that automatically calculate totals. More ActionScripts including mousetrails, change a mouse cursor into a logo, create a digital clock that changes time with the viewer's computer, trace bitmapped images or videoclips, create text that glitters or add a strobe effect to type.
