Now we only got a couple more things to fill in. I want to finish out our buttons in our main interface and we are also going to drop in a couple little placeholder buttons down here. These are going to feature us some special information that is only going to be on the homepage. But it will help our client to get a clear sense of what our finish page is going to look like.
Now, let us finish up these buttons. I am going to go up and add text and we are going to place the text down in the lower right corner here. So, I will just click and let us set up a couple parameters. I am going to want our white font back again, so I am going to change the color back to white. I am going to want this little bit bigger than 12 points. Let me bump that up to, let us say, 14 and we will use some bolding on it.
Now, our first button is going to be kind of a history page, so I am just going to tile it what we do. We will do that in all caps. So, I will hit my “Caps Lock” key and I just want to position this nicely in that right lower corner. I am just going to commit to that change and while I still have the layer, I am going to nudge it around using the “Ctrl” key or the “Command” key on the Mac to access my move tool and use the arrow keys to nudge it in place.
Let us set that up for our other buttons as well. Now, our text tool is going to retain all those settings, so all we need to do is add in the other button titles. The next one is going to be “Options” and I will add the rest of my titles as I go along. We will just confirm each with the “Enter” key in the numeric keypad. Our next button is “Gallery”, so let us pop that on in. Confirm that one with our “Enter” key. And the last one is going to be the “Alien Crew”. I will need a little bit more space for that. This is where we are going to highlight the employees.
And of course I am going to need to nudge this in, so once I confirm that text, I will just hold down “Ctrl” or “Command” on the Mac and I will move each one of these into place using my arrow keys for final nudge position. Let me switch back over to Gallery and then Options and we will be ready to go.
Now, last but not the least, we are going to be setting up those buttons I talked about before. So, let us switch right over into a W-bridge and gather up a couple of assets we got for those two buttons.
Now, those are going to be here. We got this overturned car and we got another graphic that is representing some of the space vehicle customizations that our client is offering to their clients. So, we will select those two and we will bring them on into Photoshop, so we can use them as well. Now, it looks like the pixel ratio is set a little bit differently on one of our images. So, we will just fix that once we pull it in.
Now, let us pull these out of the way and what I would like to do is copy them in just so we can include them in our layout for this moment. Once again, I will be able to select each one and using my “Ctrl” key or the “Command” key on the Mac, I can grab it with the move tool and drag it right on into our layout.
This time, since I do not have to transform handles on, I will just use the transform tool in the Edit menu and we will do a quick free transform on this, scaling it down to the right size of our button that we are going to need.
We are going to hold the “Shift” key to constrain the proportions and pull it back on here just a little bit and we are going to drop it right down in, so it fits into the area between our content here at the bottom. So, that is smaller. I commit to that transform change with the “Enter” key.
Now, I want another button just the same size and our X-car graphic is sitting on a transparent background. So, I am just going to use this layer in this graphic and I am going to use the similar trick that we did before. I am going to use the marquee tool to select the graphic. I will go back to holding the “Ctrl” key down to access the move tool using a little left and right on the arrow keys.
Now, I will just create a new layer while I have that selection active. I will
