Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Create thumbnail buttons, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] Having created our tightly cropped…iconic thumbnail images, it's now time to…put them on the homepage,…and make them into buttons, so I'm coming to the homepage,…and I'm going to scroll down to the Work section.…I'll choose my Frame tool.…At this my largest breakpoint, 1,200 pixels wide.…I'm going to make each of these thumbnail buttons…a 230 pixel square.…So I'll just click and drag to create a square,…holding down the Shift key as I do so.…
Come to the Transform panel.…Make sure that the chain is not broken,…and we'll type in 230 as the width,…and the height will be proportional to that.…Just so that I don't lose it, I'm going to…apply a color to it,…and now I'll duplicate it.…Holding down the Alt and Shift keys,…or Option and Shift keys.…Just want to make sure that these are…perfectly lined up, which I don't think they are,…so I'm going to come to my Align panel,…and I want to Align to Key Object.…
There's my key object,…and I want to distribute spacing,…and have the spacing at zero, okay.…With them all selected,…
