The End

It has been a wonderful semester and I am already looking forward to the Imaging class next semester! I also look forward to exploring the Adobe suite over the summer and putting more of what I learned this semester to use. I honestly don’t have much to say beyond that, I’m just excited to be a little less stressed out and a lot more well rested. It’s been a challenge of a semester, but it’s over as soon as I submit this link, and I’m excited.


DigiComm Resource Link

I have recently placed a link to the University of Baltimore’s Digital Communications program home page. Anything you need to learn about the program and what it offers can be accessed through that page. So far, I am still learning a good deal through this major so if its something that interest you, give it a click!

Adding Widgets

So many useful widgets Widgets can provide a host of useful information and open up increased interaction opportunities to visitors of your site. I don’t have a lot of experience with widgets so this was a truly new set of information that I have gained. I will more than likely explore more of them later on, beyond the final project.

Creating A Header Image

Straight forward process. WordPress has done a good job of making the dashboard backend incredibly easy to navigate. That aside, we had access to a database of photographs in class so finding a nice quality image to use for a header was nice and easy and making the header in InDesign was practically a breeze. Coming towards the end! A few more additions and changes and everything will be in place.


Exploring Customization Options

The customization in WordPress is extensive. It’s to be expected of such a well known website but it was still a little overwhelming at first. I haven’t been too deep into the options before this class so I had to get acquainted with my options. So far I am happy with the present level of customization and will continue to explore at a later date. Level of difficulty: 4

Adding Categories

Learned about categories and further organization in WordPress. Does a great job of grouping reading material and visuals so, if necessary, they can be viewed as related content by visitors of the site. Anyone who visits should appreciate such a clean and simple categorization option.

Adding Links

Easy enough. This was a similar experience to adding links in Microsoft Word but a lot simpler. Adding images, links and PDFs has been a swift and clean process. No hold ups or confusion. Proceeding forward at a steady pace.
