What Should You Learn?
As stated above you should also learn how to create website design processes that involved multimedia. The following are the different multimedia that are commonly used in website design:
1. Graphics – no website would be complete if there are no images incorporated. There are times when photos are too large or too small for your overall website design where instead of complimenting the web design as a whole it causes distortion to the general design. This is why it is very important to learn how to adjust or readjust images through the different image editing software. There will also be some instances where you need to incorporate drawings or cartoon images into your web design this is where you knowledge in graphic design would come in handy, thus it is important for you to learn graphic design.
2. Audio – There are times when you need to incorporate audio to your website like music or a narration. Of course not all narrations or music would easily be incorporated into your website, in the latest HTML 5 version there are only some file formats that are recognised by browsers thus it is handy to learn how to convert your audio file in to a web friendly audio file. There will also be instances that noise in the background of your audio may be evident, this is where your knowledge of audio editing would come in handy.
3. Video – perhaps one of the multimedia that revolutionised the development of websites is the video. This is because of the fact that it can combine graphics and audio into one. Enabling website visitors to watch video makes the user stay at a website longer. In order to make a presentable video you have to know how to edit videos as well as to add those necessary captions and graphics to help users in viewing your video.
