Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Set project captions, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] Having taken care of our homepage,…we can now turn attention to the project pages.…So in this movie, I'm going to be going…to the one project page that we have,…which will serve as a template for all others,…duplicating it, replacing the images,…and adding the appropriate text.…So in terms of the text that we're going to add,…the project description and the captions are important…because they give the work context.…The work doesn't speak for itself.…
The kind of information you want to include here is…information about the client,…the project goals,…how those goals were achieved,…what directions you took,…and perhaps what directions you deliberatively did not take.…And where appropriate, we want to credit our collaborators.…Back in Muse, I'm going to switch to the Plan view,…where we see the project page.…I'll right-click on that and duplicate it.…Let's call this project two,…and then open it.…
I'll switch to my text file containing my descriptive text.…Copy that,…and paste it over the dummy text.…
