A throbber is an animation that indicates progress or loading. Unlike a progress bar, it does not convey how much of the action has been completed.
Choose one of the following words: puddle, correspondence, fountain, frozen, ghost, bubble, bug, cow, snow. Use this word as inspiration in creating your custom throbber.
Create your throbber. Your throbber must be .GIF format, 100 x 100px, and have at least 8 animation frames. You may wish to complete this using Photoshop, a useful image editing tool. (Here is a tutorial on making an animated gif.) If you want to use vector shapes, create them in Illustrator or InDesign and copy and paste into Photoshop.
Create a new HTML page within your class website. You can title it "throbber.html". Use the image tag to insert your throbber onto the page.
