How It's Done!
I am still relatively new to HTML. I started dabbling in it last August and feel I am catching
on quite well. If you are new as well or know some stuff and wonder how I did something
on this page, read on. I know the feeling of seeing a cool page and racking my brains on how
something was done. You can't ask the authors because they will not answer you 9 times
out of ten. Here are the programs I used.
Images with transparent backgrounds are alot catchier than ones with a big square
around them. I used Adobe PhotoDeluxe. It is as easy as just selecting the
colors that you want to be transparent. I got the pictures off of my videotapes using
a device called a Snappy. You can capture pictures from a VCR, a
TV, Camcorder, or digital camera. This has been a very useful tool in creating my
webpages. When you are first learning, you wonder how people get their pictures on
the Internet and how much it costs to do it. This device is a steal at $200. It comes
with the above mentioned Adobe Photodeluxe, and some other great software that
is really fun to experiment with.
Wakko I did with GifConstruction Set
by Alchemy Mindworks. It is a very easy and versatile shareware program for making
animated gifs. Of course the images were done in PhotoDeluxe, converted to .gif
format and then animated.
