Basic Web Design Video Course – Wireframing, Photoshop Tools & Panels, and Designing [Part 1]

Hello everyone, this is Mike and welcome to my Basic Web Design Video Course. In this course I will walk you through the very basic steps on what to do and what to learn before, and during, building a website. You’ll learn all the steps I use including: planning, wireframing, using basic tools and panels in Photoshop, basic HTML and CSS, and after learning these we will apply our knowledge and create our very fist website from scratch.%tutke

For our valuable readers we will be pushing the basics here. So it’s your chance to learn and become a web designer for free. Are you excited? I hope that beginners can follow through, if anything is unclear just reach out to me in the comments section.

I will do my best to walk you through everything slowly and clearly. So let’s get started!

Planning and Wireframing

What is a wireframe?

A wireframe is a visual presentation of how a website’s layout will look when it’s finished. It’s about structuring the overall layout without any graphics, placing the various elements where you believe they will look and work best. Wireframing is a great step to start before jumping on to Photoshop because it allows you to focus on the important components of the website without all the visual clutter of a finished design. Wireframing also saves you time when designing a website because wireframing acts as a sketch, and instead of having to do things more than once in Photoshop, you can just adjust your ‘sketch’ until you’re happy.

Your wireframe should include boxes that represents images, header, footer, sidebars, text blocks, navigation and other content aspects of your website.

You don’t have to worry about drawing them yourself, since there are many wireframing tools available on web.

Web Designing from Evolution to Revolution [Infographic]

The term “web design” implies a great range of activities such as website planning, website creation, modeling, matching the right elements (fonts, banners, etc), coding, and arranging all pages in such a way that the end result will be a user-friendly and easy-to-use site. This infographic follows the journey of webdesign from its inception to the present days. Enjoy!


Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía |


Por J.D Rucker

Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía  En esta era de dispositivos móviles que pueden hacer casi cualquier cosa que incluso una versión más vieja podía hacer, una cosa que ha sufrido (en mi humilde opinión) es la fotografía. Hay quienes dicen que la abundancia de fotografías que se están adoptando y compartiendo es más que una compensación justa por la calidad baja y la atención al detalle que hizo una vez el  hacer una fotografía y mostrar algo que no requería una batería cargada, pero aun así perdía los maravillosos resultados de una fotografía tomada correctamente, desarrollada y posicionada.

La explosión móvil ha hecho que esto sucediera. Nadie va a negar que estos dispositivos han cambiado la vida de casi todos en el mundo, pero aún así es triste para aquellos de nosotros que fuimos a clases de fotografía, aprendimos a trabajar en un cuarto oscuro, y pasaba horas de fijación de una imagen sin la ayuda de Photoshop . Los niños de hoy pueden pasar toda su vida sin el manejo de un rollo de película.

Mediated reality: Photoshop en movimiento | via


Yorokobu | Lo escribe 

Crear un mundo a medida ante nuestros ojos, en el que eliminar las cosas que nos estorban como la publicidad o la contaminación lumínica y reemplazarlas por otras, es una posibilidad real e incluso cercana. También lo es sustituir a manifestantes por policías en una retransmisión en directo o emitir un concierto con una Beyoncé de piel tan blanca como la de la portada de su último disco. La mediated reality es una especie de Photoshop en movimiento y, para bien o para mal, permitirá hacer todo esto.

La realidad aumentada ha abierto muchas posibilidades en nuestra vida diaria y en la de nuestros smartphones. La llegada de un sistema que borra elementos en tiempo real (la diminished reality o realidad disminuida) empieza a complicar las cosas. Pero si la combinación de ambas es ya casi un hecho llamado mediated reality todo empieza a sonar a ciencia-ficción.

Para gente como el alemán Jan Herling es una posibilidad a punto de materializarse gracias a sus investigaciones y a las de sus compañeros de la Ilmenau University of Technology. Le preguntamos si podríamos resumir todo este lío tecnológico en que dentro de poco vamos a poder usar un Photoshop para imágenes en movimiento. Está de acuerdo. Y ni pestañea. De hecho enseña un vídeo que lo demuestra.

“Hollywood lleva mucho tiempo haciendo algo así en sus películas. Simplemente ocurrirá en emisiones en directo, sin necesitar días enteros de postproducción -dice Herling-. En verdad quedan cinco años para que algo así pase“. Y nos muestra este vídeo sobre realidad disminuida.

Aún hay muchas cosas por mejorar, como eliminar los borrones y los resultados pixelados que se pueden ver en este vídeo, comenta Herling. Asegura que en los dos últimos años desde que se colgó este ejemplo en YouTube han logrado importantes avances que les permiten ser optimistas y pensar que esta técnica estará ya perfeccionada antes de que termine la década.

Font Stack Builder by Erin Lawrence

This font stack builder lets you select a font stack and will tell you, using percentages, how likely it is for the fonts to be present on users’ systems. It includes options for a number of different font category styles and summarizes how the different options size up for different operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux). Very easy to use, and, best of all, it gives you the necessary CSS to copy and paste into your projects.

Browser Support by Paul D. Waite

This simple tool lets you type in the name of any CSS feature (including properties, selectors, at-rules, values, and more) and it will display a simple graphic-based chart that outlines browser support. The individual results’ pages even have links to test cases and the official specification for the selected feature.

This looks like quite a revolutionary tool. Although it might disturb purists who prefer to code everything by hand, it certainly looks like an excellent productivity tool. In a nutshell, CSS Hat is a Photoshop plugin that converts layer styles in Photoshop to CSS3 code. The site embedsa video review and demonstration that shows the tool in action, so be sure to check that out. The plugin adds conversion support for gradients, opacity, shadows, inner/outer glow, rounded corners, and more. It’s not free, but for $19.99, if it does what they claim it does, it’s well worth it.

8 tools to make your website for free

It’s the truth that sometimes we have to and want to produce web sites on a budget. It’s also true that sometimes we may just want to put up and create some sites for fun, so we don’t want to spend a ton of money on them.

Well fortunately, that’s where the web comes in. There are so many great technological advances that allow us to create and put up websites, not just on a budget but for free. From web design to development, there are all-free services that allow us to create PROFESSIONAL web sites, not just template-based sites reminiscent of the late 90s.

Today, we’ve picked 8 of the best sites to help you make your site—that’s right—everything is web-based and FREE.

The design

For many of us who are designers, we may start out with the design of the web site. It helps us visualize what we want where and gives us an idea how everything is going to be set up and work. Now many times designers will use programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Fireworks to create a layout. Below are three photo editing apps that I think are worth a try.

Phoenix by Aviary

What the developers say:

“From basic image retouching to complex effects, Phoenix delivers the key features of a desktop image editor with the simplicity and accessibility of a web-based application.”

What everyone is saying:

The way that Phoenix is presented to us is as a tool that is great for image manipulations and adjustments and similar. The great thing about Phoenix is it has many of the features that are found familiar in Photoshop, but are much simpler. Everything that is necessary is there and is a bit more intuitive than more complex software like Photoshop or even Gimp.

An added plus: Phoenix is created by Aviary, which has a plethora of other web based applications, such as a vector design application and video effects application. You are able to save your files on Aviary (as long as you’re a registered user) and you can easily open projects between applications. This is great for any designer or illustrator who wants to take their vector creation and make a website layout out of it. You are also able to import and work with PSD files.

The drawbacks of this application are there aren’t a ton of filters. This doesn’t matter much if you are just making basic changes to photos (crop, transform, etc.), but if you are here to create a more complex layout or design, you may want to try a different application. Also, Aviary saves your work by default under a Creative Commons license, so unless you make changes there, you are going to be sharing your work all over. It can also publish your work for all to see through the Aviary network, if you choose to. Seguir leyendo “8 tools to make your website for free”
