Featured in AccessFP

In each issue there will be a featured page which I think might be of interest to all.

The featured page this issue is http://accessfp.net/netstudiotutorial.htm  Which is also a new page.

NetStudio is not like other Graphic programs it is like a Super Graphics Application Add-on for FrontPage. The format and layout are just like FrontPage and the application was made to fit with FrontPage, not even the ill fated Image Composer and PhotoDraw come as close as NetStudio does. I've got the premium version and I've been playing all this week making images once you start you just can't stop.

I highly recommend Netstudio and so I've secured for AccessFP Journal members and AccessFP site visitors a $10 reduction in the price for a limited period. You can download a trail version and try it out if you decide to buy and want the $10 OFF buy through this link only or you don't get the reduction. https://www.netstudio.com/secure/promo.asp?p=21718

I've also managed to talk Raj Vij the owner of NetStudio into writing the first of a series of articles on graphics in general. This is the first part an introduction if you like. Enjoy!


GUEST ARTICLE:

Picture a barren landscape. by Raj Vij

Picture a barren landscape, much like the desert wasteland of Tatooine from the popular Star Wars movies. Sand dunes, lazily skimmed away as the afternoon sun emits shadows on the "wrong" side of the dunes; nothing but swirling sand and sweltering heat. There are no trees or water in sight. No mirage even. This is your Web page made with FrontPage.

Contrast this with an oasis: voluptuous waterfalls happily roaring into pools of deep blue, luscious grass, coconut palms swaying in a cool breeze, perhaps even a tropical bar. This is your Web page made with FrontPage and NetStudio Easy Web Graphics. Which location do you think has a higher number of visitors?

Exactly. A text only Web site can be a big turn off for the majority of Internet surfers. FrontPage bridged the void of HTML and text. Once you have created all the pretty tables and text for your site and saved them as HTML, you are still only half done. How do you help your users navigate? Buttons. How do you make your site appealing? Graphics. How do you advertise your site? Banners. How do you establish an identity for your site? Logos. How do you make all of these if you have zero artistic skill? NetStudio.

We can all agree a Web site with plain text is highly unappealing. More likely than not, you will simply hit the "back" button. Your visitors are no different. Your Web site needs to come to life, in order to grab their attention and direct them to purchase your wares or read the information you have worked so hard to provide. To say stunning graphics on a Web site is a must is like saying you need to breathe to live.

Unfortunately, the creation of such said graphics is not as obvious! NetStudio realized that FrontPage left a void with its popular HTML creation tool and it decided to create a companion product that, together with FrontPage, would be all an individual with no prior Web experience needed, in order to create a professional looking Web site.

Ever wanted to do drop shadows, emboss, collages, fades in FrontPage? All can be done with just 1 click in NetStudio. While FrontPage provides templates, they are amateur at best. Not only does NetStudio come with over 100 professionally designed templates to start you off, each aspect of a template, be it a banner or font, can be mixed and matched to create your own perfect custom look. Did we mention you can create your own templates, too?

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned next time to learn more about this EASY to use program that delivers professional results. Or, you can log onto: http://accessfp.net/netstudiotutorial.htm

 

Tip & Trick

OTHER FILE TYPES AND FRONTPAGE:

Other files types and FrontPage. If you have a PowerPoint presentation, Excel Sheet or any other MS software product output that can create HTML pages you can create instant content in your FrontPage site by saving the output as a HTML document.

Go to File | Save As rather than Save and change the file type to .htm and navigate to the FrontPage web you want the HTML document saved in. Then add a link from a page in the FrontPage web. Click the Hyperlinks icon and browse for the file in the website. The output does not have to be from another Microsoft Product this will work with any software that creates HTML pages.
