In this course educator Jim Babbage introduces all the major features of Muse, as illustrated through the process of building a simple website. Along the way, learn about some best practices for website planning and see how Muse integrates with other Adobe products such as Fireworks and Photoshop.
Hello there, I'm Jim Babbage, writer, teacher, photographer, and web designer. And in this course we're going to be looking at the basics of working with Adobe Muse. Now Muse is Adobe's new answer to building visually attractive interactive websites, and it's perfect for those who prefer to design their sites in a visual environment. Without working at the code level. This introductory course covers the basics of working with Muse, from dowloading and installing the product, to easily creating an appealing site. After exploring the Muse interface, we'll jump right into creating a project. First, we'll plan the site by exploring wire framing, and master and child pages. Then we'll design a master page, adding background images and a navigation bar. And after that, we'll start adding content to our site. Exploring the text box and paragraph styles, and then learning how to add graphics, wrap text around them, and finally adding effects to our images. And because Muse works so well with other Adobe products, we'll explore how to use Fireworks and Photoshop images in our project.
And also how to publish the complete site using Business Catalyst. So grab a comfy chair, sit back and let's start designing a website with Adobe Muse.
