Virtual Mechanics has released SiteSpinner V2.5, a Windows drag-and-drop publisher designed to be easy for beginners, but with powerful features that they can grow into. Its pixel-precision WYSIWYG design lets you position text, graphics, foreign objects and words exactly where you want them. Additional layout enhancements include the ability to size and place objects relative to the work-window, or to other objects on your page. With its built-in word processor, advanced layout options, and integrated graphics capabilities, it’s easy to build stunning, professional looking web sites without having to learn html.
The latest release includes many additional features and enhancements to make putting together a web site even easier than before. Now creating a ‘centered’ web page can be achieved with the click of a button – no more messing around with Tables to layout your pages. Creating designs that dynamically adjust to the browser they are being viewed on is just as quick. The inclusion of quality Templates incorporating some of the advanced layout options make starting your project even easier. Additional new features include the ability to use ‘iframes’, to embed one webpage into another. And the ability to create thumbnail triggered pop-up photo galleries.
SiteSpinner’s built-in graphics support has also been updated, making graphics and image manipulation even easier. You can build shapes, and fill them with intricate patterns. You can rotate titles and shapes, apply gradient shading, set transparency, and perform anti-aliasing to eliminate the jaggies. It’s easy to adjust any image’s brightness, contrast and color balance.
SiteSpinner includes a familiar word processor interface for text editing that allows users to be productive immediately. In addition to a powerful set of text editing capabilities such as the selection of fonts, styles, and colors, SiteSpinner supports rich text, raw code, and titles. Titles make it easy to format and render fully-scalable text with shading and anti-aliasing. There is a built-in spell checker, and an editor that makes it quick and easy to create links and anchors.
Once you have created the text and graphics that you want, the built-in FTP client uploads and publishes your web pages. All files associated with your site, including images, are automatically ‘gathered up’ and published to your webhost in the appropriate directory.
Power users will appreciate SiteSpinner’s advanced features. Vector geometry tools let you create images for HTML or SVG display. Advanced Project capabilities allow site-wide editing of objects such as text, graphics, and links. Pages and objects can be set to a fixed size, or can be set to dynamically scale to the browser window. SiteSpinner also includes advanced mouse-over editing capabilities.
Whether you’re a graphic artist who needs to develop a professional web site without learning to code, a student who needs an all-in-one tool for creating web text and graphics, or a home user who needs an intuitive tool for creating a family web site, SiteSpinner provides the tools.
