The End

Today is the due date for this project. So no more blogging for me.
I learnt so much while researching various topics for this project and expanding my knowledge in the way of design that is out there and my direct competition in the world on my road to success.
Thanks for the challenge!

RGB - red, green, blue, this is the standard colour chart used on the web. Then from this also follows on more specific colour ranges guaranteed for the web which is web colours but that can be addressed another time. On the web, what this means is that every pixel on screen is made up of one of these 3 colours. RGB are known as additive colours, when combined you get white light, which produces white

CMYK - cyan, magenta, yellow and black. This is the increased colour range used for print. This allows for more range and detail in the printed colour tones. CMY are subtractive tones, when they are combines they absorb the white light from a page and produce black - so sometimes, when converting RBG one problem you may encounter is that it will use CMY to produce black instead, which is only a very dark black so pure black is added and this is the K element.

web specific consiferations - plug ins

When you access a site such as youtube your computer needs certain things to run the application on that website. You may have things such as flash, that need to be installed before you can view content such as videos or animation features on sites. These help you access and download content for better viewing of the site.

examples of some plug ins:
RealPlayer: enables your computer to play streaming RealVideo and RealAudio.
Adobe Reader: For viewing and printing Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)
Adobe Flash Player: is the universal rich client for delivering effective Adobe Flash experiences across desktops and devices.
