Well, you've surfed the web, seen what's available, and now you want your own pages. These days, it's simply not enough to put your pages up on the web. Your average 'net-surfer' has seen it all, to hold their attention you've got to have an edge. How to hold the world-weary, jaded Internet user? First off, your site had better be well organized, with the data laid out in an understandable manner. Second, and sometimes most important, it had better be fun. For the first time, we have an advertising medium that people actually have to *want* to see. You will be judged by how you present yourself. A boring site will reflect badly on your company, just as a professional site will raise peoples estimation of you and your services. Image shouldn't be as important as it is, but it can't be ignored.
So, enjoy yourself, browse around, there's lot's of things to see and do here. Feel free to drop me a note if there's something you're not clear about, or if you just need a bit of advice. If you're doing this on your own, make sure you visit my "Hands-On" tutorial site for some good Photoshop tips. Take care!
