PostCall for help with web presentation!!!!

by helennock » Thu Jan 08, 2009 9:43 pm

Hi folks,
This is a boring one but I need help to smarten up my site. I've noticed others have all sorts of live links, active buttons and other stuff that's totally beyond my ken. Is it all done with using live links and html in the how to guide? What is frustrating me most is having to load additional details of the same work as main images. This is clogging up my gallery display and a bit boring to trawl through for viwers I feel. Ultimately, I want to enable the main image of a work to be clicked on and then optional views are available. This is vital for 3D work. I'm sorry if this sounds garbled and I am being lazy and mean. But if anyone has some pointers, would be extremely grateful.

Helen :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Sorry Jeanie. I was as clear as mud.
It's about an alternative option for additional views of my work in my current website gallery. I'd like different shots of details like side view, close-up etc that come up after clicking on the main image. As it stands, all images are loaded side by side interupting viewing continuity. I'm guessing this option only possible via html links wizardry...loadsa work..and still don't know how to do it. Thanks for trying anyway x :D

Hi Helen I'm no whiz when it comes to html editing,but the easiest way I have found is by using my google blog html editor or any html editor then uploading the image i want to use on my web site from my pc,the editor will convert it to html text, I then highlight and copy and paste the converted link to the discription area in my TAW admin against the pic and save it.

I hope it makes some sense.

Oh - I see what you mean now Helen. that's one of the things on my list for my home website, a detail part of the work, in situ and side view for when appropriate. My son does my site ( i'm lucky - he's a web developer by trade) but it means i have to wait for when he has time.
I think its one of those things that might be easier to do than to read about - work it out step by step with info in front. I find I can't work things out "in the mind" sometimes but by working through it practically I can do it.
best of luck

Thanks Jeannie,
I'm more practical too and definately learn better by doing. Might be all the blackboard rubbers and chalks hurtled at my head for day dreaming in maths!!

I expect many of us experienced education under the tier system. I was hopelessly non-academic and went up and down the grades like a yo-yo often ending up in the 'vocational' subjects, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
In Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie, he recollects the struggle for rural children in schools under the new education act. He describes how he and his peers would stare outside, thier whole beings tormented by the hazy sun and dust smotes through the window.

There are very few sanctions available to teachers in mandatory education now, other than suspension or exclusion. We've gone completely the other way. Teachers rely on thier natural ability to engage and lead, often negotiating learning with the child and practical subjects are essential to the curriculum.

We had a teacher called 'Laddie' who hated all boys and girls under fourteen. In short, he couldn't stand kids and would torture us sneakily at every opportunity. He had a huge handle-bar moustache. Boys would try and duck past him in the halls but the minute we heard, 'What are you doing there laddie!', we knew someone was getting picked up by thier ears or hair.
Those were the days :shock:

Another really easy way to add more pictures is to use http://photobucket.com/ just upload the pictures you want to use and Photobucket the gives you the html code you need to copy and paste into the description area when filling in details of the artwork for sale (as Wendy described) You can also adjust the sizes of the pictures if you need to.
The only problem is if anyone happened to click on any of the pictures they're linked back to Photobucket but I got round this by removing the link in Microsoft Frontpage, it's not really important as most people will just look at the pictures and not click on them. I also use Flickr http://www.flickr.com/

read photobucket T&C first :shock:
http://photobucket.com/terms
part of 6.1
Photobucket and/or other Users may copy, print or display publicly available Content outside of the Photobucket Services, including without limitation, via the Site or third party websites or applications (for example, services allowing Users to order prints of Content or t-shirts and similar items containing Content).

that reads to me like you are allowing anyone to use your images for any purpose....far too ambiguous for me so i'd never join.
been having this discussion on another forum where images have to be on web already to be uploaded to site. after reading photobuckets terms a member has suggested imageshack. terms there seem more reasonable.

That's a good point jeannie, I usually only upload small file size pictures onto Photobucket so they'd be difficult to reproduce with any quality the same with Flickr although they do give you the option to keep your pictures private
