Computer Graphic Design Advice needed please

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Triangle Web Hosting and Design, Jul 2, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I'm wanting to put up a flowchart for a client. It's not a technical one,
    but instead shows
    the flow of services offered, from the beginning to the next step and so on.
    I could use a tool like MS Visio, or even Illustrator. In that case, I
    might need to construct an imagemap as some of the flow diagram might have
    arrows that point to pages with further details. Trying to line up the
    items of clipart, various images including arrows, using Tables is not going
    so well, as one can tell be seeing the site in question.
    http://jruth.org/flowchart.html
    Any advice and suggestions would be appreciated. For example should I
    use tables and keep the images separate instead of one large graphic that is
    sliced or setup as an imagemap? When using an imagemap, on the server side,
    I'd need some code in Perl or php correct? I mean those are the two
    application servers on my system.
    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Yeh, it looks very poor as it is and a bit naf as all the images have
    nothing in common.

    I would sugest you create an image 779x434 (fits in 800x600 browser
    viewing area) exactly as you want it to look. Then either move it into
    image ready and slice it up that way you could make your links rollovers
    or you could produce your own animated sections.

    Or keep it all as a static and make an image map, image maps are client
    side and use mainly html and very simple but this is not the place,
    search google or have a look at this
    http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/imagemap.shtml

    Oh you are also using a lot of type faces, a max of two will look better.
