I want to get a site started and want to include animations.

I know little about how this is going to build but I do have the beginnings of the animation and will probably need to learn a bit about the tools for this.

I have found some reasonably inexpensive sites, and I suspect that the various styles and types of sites will follow as reasonably priced, . .

but I am concerned about how the, "animations are going to work out", how they will load and play for the viewers.

So far, I have learned that the larger gif's posted on ,"direct links", always take a while to load.

I'm not sure if it seems that way to me, because I have a land line, and my PC isn't the swiftest on the block.

Anyway, what should I be looking at in preparation, for ease of developing an e-commerce site, as I will probably start out with a single product?

The product is show cased in the animation.

GIF animations and videos load relatively quickly for users with a broadband connection.

Dial-Up users will see GIF animations without any noticeable delay, but will have to wait
for videos to download.

See the pinned topics for website development.

You should check with your ISP to see if they provide webspace for subscribers;
build your own site, with the many free tools available and upload.
Keeps the costs down.

You may prefer to have someone build a professional site for you; companies
offering such a service generally have facilities or tie-ins for publishing and hosting your
site. You would have to check with them for the level of charges.

Other members may have better suggestions. :thumbsup:

I use thumbnails that if clicked on will lead to the bigger pic or link, sort of a browse window shopping thing.

Dreamweaver isn't going to produce good results without a decent knowledge of the underlying structure of what it produces (and how code interacts with different browsers, window sizes and font sizes). Nor is it going to create search engines and other features requiring server side interaction for you.

You guys are somewhat ahead of me, . . My thoughts are in using a prepared web service,

however, I don't know how much custom creative art I can add in or how it will be added.

What your doing does interest me, . . say for example I can write in HPTL if that is what it is called, . . does a hosting provider provide the site or the pages or pages that it would be written on ?

kevin_47 is right you gotta know how to use Dreamweaver.
If you have Dreamweaver that is great.


In a nutshell,
You write your HTML and then upload it to the server. Basically like saving it to a folder on your computer, only the folder is not on your computer...it's on the web.
An open source program to create web pages Kompozer

As far as designing you can find help here

As far as web space goes I pay like 3.99 per month and have lots of space and e-mail addresses.
