I am a graphic designer, primarily for print work and I use Photoshop and InDesign almost exclusively. I have never created a website and don’t know HTML or CSS or any of that code that is used to create a ‘real’ website. I was looking for a Mac program that was as close to WYSIWYG as you could get and I thought Freeway would be it. In May of '07 I downloaded the Freeway Express 4 demo to create a website for our business and even though there was a learning curve I was able to create something I kinda liked. Anyway I never finished the site and had to put it off until now. Today I downloaded the demo for Pro 5 since I read it had more features and capabilties, etc. and I’d like to do more web sites if I can. Is there that much of a difference in Express and Pro? Honestly, I feel like an idiot because I can’t even figure out how to link a button to a page which I figured out pretty quickly in the Express version.
I’m sorry this is such a long post - I am just so frustrated and I can’t find any straightforward help on-line. Can someone tell me A) are the 2 programs/versions that different and B) where might I find a beginners tutorial that starts with a blank page and gos from there?
Thank you in advance for any help!
Then there are the tutorials found by clicking on the navigation tab on the left of this page “Tutorials”.
This should get you started. I find that the videos really help me understand faster and better. The written manuals are very good but, like everything else that is new, it takes awhile to catch onto the language.
Good luck, Vic
