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,
