Chapter 10. Creating a Gallery > Navigating Content

Navigating Content

In earlier chapters, you created websites with simple navigation systems that let you move between pages on a site. In Project 8, you create a simple site that had a few buttons to navigate between each page. You used transitions to create interest and fluidity between different areas of the website. Even more important than visual interest is whether or not your website is intuitive. If users cannot find your content, the message or advertisement isn't successful. You must communicate the purpose of your site to the user to create a successful website.

There are several reasons you might choose to use Macromedia Flash for your gallery instead of HTML. If you want to add multi media elements to your gallery to make it into more of an “experience,” Flash makes it easy. For example, you can easily add sound and video to the gallery—more so than with HTML. Additionally, you don't need to worry about your users having the correct plug-ins installed to play back these elements (such as requiring QuickTime or Windows Media Player) because most visitors have Flash Player installed. Not requiring the use of several different plug-ins makes the user experience ideal.
