Blank button, company name, page title and box top graphics are included. These are found in the Images folder. Import the needed blank tab graphics into your graphics program (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Image Composer, etc.). If the program allows, place them in layers, making an additional layer for the words. Display each layer of the graphics, one at a time, plus the word layer, save the newly modified images as .gifs, and export into the template.
OR use the Fireworks editable .png files found in the PNGs folder. If you do not have Fireworks, a free trial copy is available from Macromedia. With the .png files the colors of the images can be easily changed.
Tip: Give the new .gifs the same file names as the originals in the template, letting them override the original graphics in the images folder. This way they will automatically fall into place in the template. After the new graphics are in the images folder, rename the files to make more sense for your site.
The font used on the company name and box top images was Anastasia. A slight drop shadow was added. There is room on each button for two rows of words.
The font used on the page title images was Tahoma with a drop shadow
We are also available to modify the graphics for a nominal fee. Please contact us for details.
Coordinating bullet graphics are provided.
An optional Swish movie is included on the Home page. Swish 2.01 or higher is needed to modify the movie.
Note that some elements that occur on all pages of this site
exist as include pages. You can find these include pages in the
"includes" folder of this web.
The include pages are inserted into the main pages in order to
allow you to make global changes to your site or change many pages
at the same time. To do this you must right click on the area you
would like to edit. If it is indeed an include page you will see
something like this in the pop up menu:
Open file: c:\
location and name of include page
Or - you can open the include pages via folders view. Once the
file is open - make the necessary changes and save them. All pages
utilizing the include page should update upon saving.
The include pages used in this template are the
header (without the movie), left column, and product menu found on
the Products page.
