Robin Underhill asked me to create a basic tutorial about ImageReady rollovers, so I've made three rollovers for you in the 'zo banner above (Portal, Forum and Gallery). Give them a try!
I'll show you how to create these rollovers in the tutorial.
A rollover changes appearance
when a mouse rolls over it, letting a web site visitor
know when a word or image is a link to another web page.
Rollovers make perfect navigation bars (navbars) within your
web site. ImageReady makes the creation of rollovers very
easy. When you bought Photoshop, you got ImageReady with
it on the same CD.
I've put the tutorial
on an Adobe PDF. To view it, you’ll
need the current version of Adobe Reader®. You probably
already have it, but if you experience any problems, you
can download it here:
The Adobe PDF can be read here on
the web, or you can download it to your computer and read
it there at your leisure off line. You will need to zoom
in on the illustrations to see what I’m describing.
Just use the magnifier tool at the top of your PDF window.
see several web links on the PDF; they’re “live,” you
can click on them and the link will open in your web browser.
I’ve used a horizontal format because that fits your
The seven pages are the right size to print out, too (you'll notice I’ve left room at the top for your 3-hole punch), however I haven’t figured out how to keep the links live when you print them out. ;~)
Enjoy this PDF and share it with your
friends, but it is copyrighted and not to be reproduced
whole or in part by any means without my written permission.
In short, don’t
make any money from it, ‘cause I’m not. OK?
