i have been using CMS programs to build sites lately, and at teh same time I was stufying some coding; HTML, JAVA (Still studying), PHP (Will study God willingly after I finsih with JAVA).
Now I wanted to start to code my own site a bit so I also wanted to create some designs or pictures that I could call to the page and make them all fit into one nice looking page/site. I was wondering though where could I start, such as how big should I make the banners, or the table pictures! I am clueless in those areas! Please help, thanks!
Well my site was going to feature PS3 news and info and some other stuff! So I am guessing it would look nice if I used some grey, silver and maybe black colours!
WEll yeah its a bit harder to start building a web site. But fist you have to visualize what you want .Just get your pen and a paper and try making layouts for your web site That should be the first step . After getting a satisfactory design .
After you write the code or whatever then try out the colors and for me the simpler the better . Just don't use too many colors or it will look like hell.
Well now just start out . Every thing will come to your be itself . Its just the start that is difficult.
if u are building a website, it is nice to first list all the pages/topics you want before u make the layout so u'll know how to make th navi bar stuff.
decide if u want frames or tables, and make your layout background then slice the picture(for bottons , links etc) and just fit them together with code
rainynightstars, I will just do that! Thanks for the help guys, I was also wondering should I make some pictures in Adobe Photosop. As in pictures like for the banner, and maybe some like pictures for the tables, like the title so that the words are over a picture like a button thing?
basically, those question should come a little later. You should be thinking of the genral layout first and then the major pics and images after. I mean, you really should not base a site off of some pics.
yet when you are making thos images, you should use progrmas like adobe photoshop or fireworks ( formally macromedia fireworks, but bought by adobe..amazing) but i do wish you good luck with your work
