About This Class

GIMP & HTML 1: Well Formed HTML and the HTML Image Tag

Display It All on Your Web Page

In this class I'll show you how to use HTML and a browser to display and animate those images. Learn to use div tags to position graphics and text on the screen in order to lay out entire web pages. Learn how to use mouse events to make pages react to the user’s actions.

The class begins with a quick overview of HTML that turns into a discussion on well formed HTML.

A review of the HTML "img" tag shows the most basic way to include images into a web page while showing some CSS based options for configuring the image.

In the final lesson I'll show how to layout images on a page, even overlay them, by using HTML "div" tags and CSC positioning. A brief set of slides leads to web page examples and finally to the HTML source displayed in an editor.

See you in the classroom,

Born in Los Angeles in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.

My last endeavor, begun in July of 2014, was to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal was to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. I then expanded my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.

My new goal is to begin recording custom material for distribution on SkillShare!!!

I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
