Description

This course is for anyone who is into web design or planning to get into designing websites and blogs. You should join this course if you have some basic Photoshop knowledge and if you are planning to use WordPress, Joomla, or other CMS for the website you are working on.

Sliders are probably one of the most important elements in web design so it’s crucial to make them engaging and interactive. Almost every blog needs a good slider that crowns the site and welcomes the users. Parallax is a great technique, which uses the same principle as in animation when the background images move by the camera slower than the foreground images, creating an illusion of depth in a 2D scene and adding to the immersion.
