Many students have shown an interest in presenting images online, so this week we will be setting up an image gallery. The idea is to employ lytebox to show single images, groups of images and a slideshow.

Students will be required to prepare images (thumbnail and large versions) from stock images. Next up they will set up the folder structures for the project. Finally they will develop the gallery in Dreamweaver – this will require them to define a site in DW, create the gallery page and finally configure the page to use Lytebox to display the images.

Should we have time I will cover inserting a quicktime movie into a webpage using a dreamweaver behaviour.

To end the session we will set up a status bar scroller in response to a particular request from a student. Looks like a fun class, roll on 7pm.
