Our last exercise is actually a little test to ensure that you understand how to read a file structure, create one and to publish to the web. You can use any programs you like to do this test, though it can all be done with Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Both the dry run and the actual test are set up so you can create the file structure within your existing exercises website. (That means you do not need to use the Site Management process. You can create the folders and files you need in your Files Panel within your exercises website.)
Here is a "dry run" below which you can try yourself.
Welcome to the dry run of the FTP Test
The instructions are simple:
- Download the image below
- Open in Photoshop.
- Add your name to it (on the actual test, you will also have to add your answers to the questions)
- Compress the image as a 8-bit png, gif or jpg
- Create a web page that includes your version of the image
- Ensure that this web page has the following address (URL):
http://publish.uwo.ca/~username/dryrun/index.html ("username" will be replaced with your own username).
