|This is an excellent package for beginners who are just starting out with Web design. You don't need to learn how to use a graphics package or spend time trying to modify an image since all of the images are provided in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and textures. The Step by Step Design Guide is easy to use. Intermediate and advanced PC users could use this program for fast Web page design.|
More than 1 million professionally-designed, original, and royalty-free Web-ready images on 6 multi-platform CD ROMs.
This is probably one of the best organized software packages that I have reviewed, and you don't have to get out the magnifying glass to go through a dictionary sized catalog of thumbnails to find the right image. There is nothing to install, either. You just put in the first CD and a dialog box pops up and asks you if you want to launch your browser. You click yes and all the images are displayed in a unique Web-page catalog on the CDs; there is also a selection wizard that leads you step-by-step through the catalog and helps you choose the right image for your needs. The interface is extremely user friendly. The first window displays four choices:
you in picking a purpose for your site. Then you select an image. You
have10 designs to choose from, and you can select a two color or three
color scheme. Once you work through the Design Guide you will have a template web page that
you can modify for your needs using your web editor. It is so easy.
The 10 designs are enough to get you started. You just copy the files
and any graphics needed from the CD to your hard drive. You can then
add you own text, change the color scheme or add different images from
the CD if you want.
can add your own text to blank buttons using a graphic editor. As with
the other section, there is a wizard to
help you find the blank button you need. You choose type, size, texture,
and flat or raised. There are a variety of styles, plain to fancy, conservative
|This is a very useful package of images. I just wish that other software packages of clip art or images were as well-organized and used a Web page browser. The 10 different textures for the buttons and arrows were impressive. The seamless backgrounds were quite elegant in their texture and color, and the strip backgrounds were colorful and fun to use. You had the same choice of colors for all the items so that you could color-coordinate backgrounds with bullets and arrows. And each catalog page was laid out in the same format with the colors arranged in the same manner, red to black. I was able to select matching borders, bullets and arrows very easily. I did not have to hunt for anything.The wide selection of sample pages should provide a new business with the basic Web pages they need. I have been using this program for the layout of various reviews and was very satisfied. Reviews such as Commandos, Compton's 99 Encyclopedia Deluxe, Windows 95 Is Driving Me Crazy!, and How To Use America Online 4 were designed using WebSpice images. This software would make a good Christmas stocking stuffer.|
