Congrats you have mastered the basics in AW I and are now ready to move on to AW II. The basics are the same but there are some big differances too.
As shown above, the credit area is much the same as it is in AW I but, in AW II there is a major differance that is easy to overlook. In AW I the only tiles you can add are public domain so there is no need to pay much attention to the artist and artist link areas, but now there is the option to add tiles that may not be public domain. If you use any tiles that are not part of the public domain that require a credit and/or linkback to the artist, do so by putting the artist name where it says Artist and a link to his or her site where it says Artist link. All the tiles I used in this webset were public domain ones that I got from CCG. I left these two areas as they were.
As mentioned above, you now have the option of adding tiles from other sorces. I chose the simplest for demonstration purposes, getting tiles from albums here at CCG. The other is to get and use use the URL from a tile that you have at a photo site such as Photo Bucket or Fotki. Click the button on the bar shown below to begin the process of importing tiles.
The following will appear.
Clicking the get button will bring up a smaller screen shown below with the diferent choices of albums. For example, if you want a green tile, you would click on Green Tiles. The green tiles album will open up and display a selection of green tiles Find the tile you want and click on it The window closes and the tile url is added to the tiles you can use. If you wanted to use tiles from a source other than CCG, you would paste the url in the blank area next to the get button instead.
The tiles will show up in the utility pallette and behave the same as the other tiles in the main pallette after you click the done button. Enter the width and choose the tiles much as you did in AW I for each layer. I have found that if you are looking for a look that makes your webset appear to have more depth, using an animated tile in a layer with a width of width of 1 or two adjacent to a layer containing a tile of a color that is much the same, works wonders. This webset is an example of this. The tiles and widths that I chose are shown below.
If after you have made your choices you decide to change something all you need to do is select the layer you want to change make the change on, enter them and then click the enter button for that layer.
When your webset is looking the way you want it to you then need to chose what type of formatting you need...
You can now highlight and copy the webset over to your own site. if either your browser or the site you are planning on posting your webset in does not support copy-paste, check the display code box under the format selector to display the code. It will appear immediately above the webset.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
