In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
While it is possible to create your own assets using Muse, or even external tools like Photoshop or Illustrator. Sometimes it's useful to stand on the shoulders of other designers and learn from their experience. One way to do this is to browse and download Muse library items on the Muse Exchange. Now the Muse Exchange is a wonderful new website from Adobe Muse that lets you search and download Muse library items. To get there, you can just go to your Muse Library panel and click on Adobe Muse Exchange to bring you directly there.
On this page, there's an overview movie that explains how the library works. Since we already know how it works, we can just come down and browse to find something for ourselves. Let's go to the second page, and I'm going to click on Inspire Template and Library. You can see that this particular Muse item has a few different tags, and we can click to see different pictures how it works. But what we're going to do is download this particular item. Then back inside Muse, we'll import that item. So we'll go into our downloads and here's the Muse inspired theme. I'm going to just select this and click Open.
After opening it up, we can twirl this down, and look at all these various items that we can bring into our layout. In this case, here's a nice little icon that we could use, maybe even a contact form. And even menus that we can use. All of these are professionally designed items that we can use however we want in our layout. Back on the Muse Exchange, if we click back to go back to the homepage, you can see that there's a lot of items in here. And just note that some items are free and some items are paid. But if you have your own items that you want to submit, you can always click here to submit them to the library. Be sure to visit the Muse Exchange often, since new items are added all the time.
It's also a great place to see new widgets that the Muse team and others that are working on. Finally, if you ever get a mental block about what sort of interactivity you want to add to your site. You can always browse and find something interesting to try out on your own site.
