Web Banner Collage with Fireworks CS6
Creating a web banner collage is very easy with Adobe Fireworks CS6! I have used this multiple times for my high school students and have previously trained other teachers and staff using similar handouts and methods. This activity could also be easily modified for younger students.
"Learning Path" pdf document will provide training details for a Professional Development session that can be completed in about 2 hours.
"In Advance Letter" will provide wording to help you introduce your professional development session to teachers or other adults in need of learning some basic features of Fireworks CS6.
"Creating a Web Banner Collage" can be used as a professional development training session or high school class tutorial, either by showing on your projector or printing as handouts. There are plenty of screen prints included to make it easy for visual and/or auditory learners to follow along. I have included a compressed version or the tutorial for easy downloading and printing. Many of the phrases and terms in the "Learning Path" document will be helpful for lesson planing if you decide to use this in your classroom.
Depending on your monitor and browser settings, you might want to experiment with the canvas sizes of your banners, but I have found that once the project has been completed, it is much easier to reduce the image size than to increase it.
