    5 Key Elements the Best Restaurant Websites Should Have

    Sharing your restaurant’s business hours and an address is a great place to start, but if you really want to make the most of your restaurant website design, there are a few must-have features your site needs. Here are a few essentials that the best restaurant and cafe websites should have: 

    1. Display Your Full Menu

    Sharing your menu is a must for any-food related business. It’s not enough to state that you’re offering Italian or Mexican food; your customers want to know exactly what they can expect. Share your dishes and add nutritional information and a list of ingredients so they can come to your restaurant fully prepared. Consider a theme like Piquant, which offers several ways to display your menus.

    2. Take Online Reservations

    Taking phone reservations is a great way to ensure you’re not overbooking but it’s even better if your customers can make a reservation online. This allows them to book any time of day and night and can minimize the time spent on phone reservations—allowing you to focus your attention on other important areas of your business.

    3. Process Online Ordering

    If you deliver food, consider adding online ordering to your website like in the Capella restaurant theme. Similarly to online reservations, this will reduce your time spent on the phone and your customers won’t have to wait for the line to become available. It also allows them to order food just before they leave for home. That way they cna have it delivered shortly after they arrive, which is more convenient than coming home and placing an order.

    4. Feature Customer Reviews

    Reviews are a powerful feature that can help you attract even more customers to your restaurant. A WordPress theme like Restaurant Cafe makes it easy to integrate a review system and allow anyone who visits your establishment to leave a review and share their experience.

    5. Use High-Quality Images

    Lastly, do make sure your images are high-quality. While photos of your dishes are great for making mouths water, consider sharing photos of your restaurant’s interior as well. This will help you paint a detailed image of the atmosphere in your restaurant and make your visitors more inclined to visit.

    An attractive slide deck plays a large role in your webinar presentation. When your slide deck looks good and is on brand, you've got  better chances of engaging your participants. It’s also easier for participants to remember details from your webinar considering visuals help us retain information for longer periods of time.

    In this article, we’ll cover the benefits of using a slide deck template, how to prepare your presentation, and how to customize the template to reflect your brand.

    3 Benefits of Using a PowerPoint Template

    Aside from increasing the odds of your audience staying until the end of the webinar, using a premade PowerPoint template has several benefits.

    1. It Saves Time

    A premade template saves you time since all of the structure is already in place. All PowerPoint templates will usually include all the possible slides you'll need such as text, image, and a combination of text and image slides. You’ll also find elements such as shapes, icons, charts, and other common elements that'll help you present data in a meaningful way.

    2. You Don’t Have to Start From Scratch

    Another benefit of a premade slide deck template is that since everything is already included, you don’t have to start from scratch. All you've got to do is customize the webinar slide design with your brand colors, add your content, and delete slides that you don’t need.

    Here’s a tutorial that shows you how to quickly customize a PowerPoint template:

    How to Quickly Customize a PowerPoint Template Design

    3. When Customized, It Helps You Build Brand Recognition

    Lastly, once you customize the webinar template and reuse it for all your webinars, it helps you build brand recognition. When participants constantly see your brand colors and your logo, they'll start to recognize your brand elsewhere online.

    Plan Out Your Structure

    Before you dive into creating your slide deck, it pays off to plan out the structure of your webinar and create an outline of what the slide deck will include. The primary goal of your slide deck is to help your attendees understand and remember the information you're sharing so an outline helps you organize that information in a logical way.

    Your basic slide deck should include the following:

    • title slide
    • intro
    • slide for each main topic
    • slide for the pitch at the end

    Once you've got those slides in place, you can add additional slides that'll help you elaborate on your main topics. You can follow this structure to break down the topic of your webinar. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

    1. Start With the Intro Section

    It goes without saying that you shouldn't skip the Intro section. Use the title and the intro slide to introduce the topic and give your audience the overview of what will be covered. Here, you can tell them how long you expect the webinar to last, whether you’ll have a Q&A session if your webinar includes a special offer at the end or not, who the guest experts are if you've got them, etc.

    You can also use this as an opportunity to introduce yourself and explain your background as well as why you're the expert on this topic.

    2. Use Bullet Points to Explain the Main Points

    Bullet points are easier to read so use them to your advantage. Refrain from using long paragraphs of text to present your ideas and stick to bullet points. However, be careful not to overuse them as this can have a negative impact on your webinar.

    If you give your audience all the bullet points at once, there's a high chance they'll read all of them and tune out while they wait for you to move on to the next slide. As such, it’s a good idea to use only one bullet point per slide to keep their interest and engagement.

    3. Use Graphs and Charts to Present Stats and Facts

    If your webinar topic deals with a lot of data, use graphs and charts to present them. Using visual cues will help your audience understand the information better and make your presentation more interesting.

    Adding graphs and charts to PowerPoint templates

    Your graphs and charts can go on additional slides to help illustrate your point. You’ll find most templates include several variations of charts and graphs that you can use throughout your presentation.

    If you’re looking for more information about how to use graphs and charts in your PowerPoint template, we have a detailed tutorial:

    4. Plan for the Q&A Section

    Leave room for the Q&A section once you’re done with the main portion of your presentation. Doing so will allow your audience to ask any additional questions they might have and get to know you even better.

    Your Q&A session doesn’t need any special slides as most webinar organizers tend to switch to camera view of all the presenters.

    5. Conclude with CTA at the End

    The last part of your presentation should include a call-to-action that directs your audience to the next step. In this section, you can give a brief summary of what was covered, explain your offer, illustrate the benefits that are included, and provide them with a link where they can sign up or make a purchase.

    Like the main portion of the webinar above, you’ll want to include several slides here, each with a single bullet point to keep the engagement high.

    6. Choose Your Webinar Template

    Once you’ve outlined the webinar, it’s time to choose your webinar template. You can find plenty of templates on Envato Elements. These templates were designed to look good and include all the necessary elements you’d need for a successful webinar.

    When choosing a webinar template, you’ll want to look for a template that's related to your industry or the topic of your webinar. You’ll also want to make sure that the template has an attractive design and the basic structure we mentioned above. When you've found the webinar template you like, purchase it and download the file to your computer.

    For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll be using the Enjoy template. This template can be used for all kinds of webinars thanks to its simple yet unique design. Enjoy also includes more than 100 slides, infographic elements, charts graphs, maps, and icons.

    If you're looking for just the right webinar presentation template, review the templates in this article to get some ideas:

    How to Create Webinar Slides Using a PowerPoint Template

    Now that you've got a template for your webinar, it’s time to dig in and create your presentation. To start, double-click the template to open it up in PowerPoint. As you can see from the screenshot below, the Enjoy template has quite a few slides that you can use. Let’s go through the process of customizing it step by step.

    Enjoy slides
    The Enjoy template has many available webinar slide designs.

    Step 1. Decide Which Slides You'll Need

    The first step is to choose which slides you'll keep. If you’re using the Enjoy template, you’ll notice there are a few slides that can be used to share information about your company, services, and more. The difference is in how they visually appear, so you’ll have to choose your preferred webinar slide design.

    If you need to duplicate a slide, right-click on it in the sidebar on the left and choose Duplicate. This is also how you can delete all the unnecessary slides. Once you know which slides you'll use, delete the rest.

    duplicating and deleting slides

    Step 2. Enter Your Own Content

    Now that you're left with a handful of slides, it’s time to insert your own content. In some cases, you'll be able to click directly on the text and type. Some template might require editing the master slide in which case, you’ll need to click on View > Slide Master and then type in the placeholder boxes in the master slide.

    Replacing content

    Step 3. Customize the Styles

    After you've entered your own content, you can begin customizing the styles of your template. You can choose your own fonts from the font drop-down menu and you can add your own photos on appropriate slides. To add images to your presentation, double-click the Picture icon and insert your own photos.

    If you want to change the background color of any slides, click on the background and then select Shape Fill. You can then choose any of the suggested colors or enter your brand colors by selecting More Fill Colors. In a similar fashion, you can change the background color of any shape used in the template.

    If you've got any charts you need to edit, follow this simple 4-step process:

    1. Select the chart on the slide that you want to change. You’ll notice a new Chart Tools contextual tab at the top of the PowerPoint window.
    2. Under Chart Tools, on the Design tab, in the Data group, click Edit Data with Microsoft Excel.
    3. Excel will open in a new window and displays the worksheet for the selected chart. In that worksheet, click the cell that contains the data that you want to change, and then enter the new information.
    4. When you’re done, close the Excel file. PowerPoint will then refresh and save the chart automatically.
    editing charts

    Step 4. Review the Presentation

    Once you’re done with entering your webinar content and styling the template, you can review the presentation. As you’re reviewing it, make sure that the content is free of typos and that you’ve replaced all the information. You’ll also want to make sure that the transitions are set the way you like them.

    If you need to edit any transitions, go to the Transitions tab and select Custom Transitions. A dialogue box will appear on the right, showing the current effects on that slide. From there, you can tweak and edit the settings.

    5 Tips for Spicing Up the Webinar Slide Design

    Now that your template is all set, here are a few extra tips that'll help you spice up your slide deck design.

    1. Make Sure Images Are High Quality

    Images can help you deliver your message and showcase your company and your key employees. However, you've got to make sure that images are of high quality. If your images are blurry, it can ruin your presentation and hurt your brand reputation.

    Adding high quality images

    2. Use Icons to Make Your Webinar Slide Design More Attractive

    Another way to spice up your slide deck is to use icons to make your design more attractive. You can use icons to represent your services or your goals and any other part of your presentation.

    A good idea is to use an icon font like FontAwesome. You can also use icons like Dashicons that allow you to copy various glyphs and use them where you need them.

    3. Use Legible Fonts and Larger Font Sizes

    Lastly, make sure to use legible fonts and larger font sizes to ensure your audience can easily read the text. As a rule of thumb, avoid using script fonts as they're quite hard to read and use at least 24 pt for font size.

    4. White Space Is Your Friend

    Adding white space to your webinar templates will make it easier for your audience to focus on the information that’s being presented. Keep in mind the white space doesn’t necessarily have to be white, it simply refers to unused space around the design elements.

    5. Develop Consistency

    Lastly, make sure to use consistent fonts, colors, and image styles throughout your webinar presentation. Using your brand colors and fonts is a good place to start but don’t go overboard with all of the colors in your branding palette, mixing up heading and body fonts or jumping from bright landscape photos to black and white photos as this will make your webinar slide deck templates look unprofessional.

  • Sun, 24 Mar 2019 12:37:00 +0000: How (and Why) to Add Sound FX to Your Film and Video - Envato Tuts+ Tutorials

    Great sound effects don’t really stand out, because they’re chosen and edited to fit naturally with the action. We might take it for granted, but getting your sound effects right is a real skill. Let’s look at how and why you should add them to your video.

    Why Use Sound Effects (FX)

    To Add Realism

    When you’re shooting a scene, there’s likely all sorts of ambient noise going on that you aren’t paying attention to, but will flag up when you watch the scene back and it’s not there. Say you’re filming someone making a cup of coffee in a café. As well as the noises of the action, there’ll be a low hum of chatter in the background, cups clinking, chairs scraping… that sort of thing. It’s not always possible to capture all your sound while you’re shooting.

    To Stop a Scene Being Flat

    Subliminally, we can realise something’s missing from footage without knowing what it is, your brain registers something isn’t right and you can feel it without knowing what; often that’s sound. If you consider all the sounds you hear daily, without consciously processing them, it’s no surprise that when you hear something a little off, you might think the scene sounds ‘flat’ or, wrong.

    To Help Record Dialogue

    If you’re shooting actors speaking dialogue, you’ll want that to be as clear as possible, so often that means shooting directional audio and deliberately blocking out the ambient sound. Later, that can sound really flat and like they’re in a studio – not the result you want at all. Adding the ambience in afterwards can help you keep the dialogue prominent and clear.

    Photo by Jacek Dylag on Unsplash
    Photo by Jacek Dylag on Unsplash

    More Control, and Recording Something That Doesn’t Exist  

    Back to our café example: you might want the coffee noises to be louder, the music on the radio to be heard, or different, and so on. Recording sound to add in yourself gives you much more control, whether it’s when that sound makes an appearance or how loud it is in the mix.

    Sometimes it’s just not possible to get real, live sound as the action happens. If you’re filming a battle scene where the protagonists are fighting with swords, chances are (unless you have really excellent insurance) they won’t be real. The clanking of plastic or rubber swords will not set your audience aflame, so you might try and replicate the real sound by recording metal on metal, later.

    Sometimes a sound might not exist at all. Reproducing everyday sounds or creating new ones to add to your video is known as Foley.

    Take the light-sabres in Star Wars – sorry folks, they’re not real – how do you even begin to know what you want from that effect? Look away if you don’t want the magic ruining, but a light-sabre noise is the combination of a movie projector motor and static interference from a TV set. Genius!

    How to Use Sound Effects

    In covering the ‘why’ we’ve covered a lot of the ‘how,’ when it comes to adding and recording sounds to your film. You can record the ambient noise of somewhere you’re representing in your film, and you can record extra, specific noises to layer on to that and add greater control to sound overall.

    You can also experiment with creating sounds from different things, like in the sword or light-sabre examples earlier.

    Here are a few of our tips for recording your sfx:

    • Get your sound as clean and isolated as possible
    • Capture room ambience while you’re filming in case you want to use or replicate it later.
    • Leave your recorder rolling for a while, more is better
    • If there’s something unique to your location, pay attention and try to capture it more than once, just in case you can’t copy it later.
    • Look for noise pollutants that you might subconsciously ignore – do you need to unplug a fridge, or turn off boiler?

    Use an Audio Library

    There are some fantastic audio libraries and resources to use, and it can be much easier to find what you need by browsing these by keyword than it can to go out and record your own. Envato Elements now includes a huge library of sound effects, so you can pay one monthly subscription, but have access to as many of their library of thousands as you like!

    What You'll Be Creating

    Today, I bring you one more Photoshop action. I will show you how to create 3D text effects with Photoshop layer styles. Using a simple motion blur filter on a layer style, we are going to create an amazing holographic text effect that looks as if it came out of a Star Wars film. You will also learn how to add actions to Photoshop and how to make cool Photoshop text effects fast with Photoshop actions. 

    The text effect we are going to create today is part of Cyberpunk Text Effects

    Tutorial Assets

    The following assets were used during this tutorial:

    • KomikaHuna Font
    • Background image and pattern attached to this tutorial

    1. How to Create the Layer Styles

    Step 1

    Before we start recording the action, we first need to create the layer styles. This way, we can create an action with fewer steps, making it a lot easier to edit it later.

    Download the zip file attached to this tutorial and extract it to any folder you like. Then open the Holo-Tuto-Background.jpg file with Photoshop.

    3D text holographic background

    Step 2

    Now pick the Horizontal Type Tool (T) and set the font size to 175 pt and font to Komikahuna. Then write HOLO in the center of the document.

    Base layer of the first layer style

    Step 3

    Go to the Layers panel and change the Fill of the HOLO layer to 0%. Then double-click on the same layer to open the Layer Style panel. After that, add a Color Overlay with these settings:

    • Blend Mode: Normal
    • Color: #001f36
    • Opacity: 100%
    Color Overlay settings

    Step 4

    Now add an Outer Glow with these settings:

    • Blend Mode: Normal
    • Opacity: 64%
    • Noise: 0%
    • Color: #004377
    • Technique: Softer
    • Spread: 22%
    • Size: 73 px
    • Contour: Linear
    • Anti-aliased: On
    • Range: 100%
    • Jitter: 0%

    After that, click on New Style and save it as HOLO - A

    Don't close the Layer Style panel.

    Outer Glow Settings

    Step 5

    The first layer style is complete, so now we are going to create the second one.

    Uncheck the Outer Glow to disable it. Then edit the Color Overlay with these settings:

    • Blend Mode: Soft Light
    • Color: #12b4ff
    • Opacity: 100%
    Editing the Color Overlay settings

    Step 6

    Add a Bevel & Emboss with these settings:

    • Style: Emboss
    • Technique: Smooth
    • Depth: 1000%
    • Direction: Up
    • Size: 9 px
    • Soften: 12 px
    • Use Global Light: Off
    • Angle: -95º
    • Altitude: 36º
    • Gloss Contour: Ring Double
    • Anti-aliased: On
    • Highlight Mode: Color Dodge. Color: #7ba4c6 Opacity: 86%
    • Shadow Mode: Hard Light. Color: #8fd1ff Opacity: 75%
    Bevel and Emboss settings

    Step 7

    Add an Inner Shadow with these settings:

    • Blend Mode: Screen
    • Color: #009cff
    • Opacity: 100%
    • Use Global Light: Off
    • Angle: 90º
    • Distance: 19 px
    • Choke: 0%
    • Size: 32 px
    • Contour: Cone
    • Anti-aliased: On
    • Noise: 0%
    Inner Shadow settings

    Step 8

    Now, we're going to use the pattern that came in the zip file attached to this tutorial. It is a pretty simple white horizontal striped pattern. I created it with a white line and a transparent background. 

    • Blend Mode: Normal
    • Opacity: 36%
    • Pattern: Holographic Pattern (Click on the thumbnail of the pattern to open the Pattern picker, then click on the little gear icon at the top right corner and choose Load Patterns. After that, select the Holographic Pattern that came in the zip file).
    • Scale: 150%
    • Link with Layer: On
    Pattern Overlay settings

    Step 9

    Add a Drop Shadow with these settings:

    • Blend Mode: Normal
    • Color: #004280
    • Opacity: 100%
    • Use Global Light: On
    • Angle: -87º
    • Distance: 0 px
    • Spread: 16%
    • Size: 16 px
    • Contour: Linear
    • Anti-aliased: Off
    • Noise: 0%
    • Layer Knocks Out Drop Shadow: On

    Then click on New Style and save it as HOLO - B. After that, close the Layer Style window.

    Drop Shadow settings

    2. How to Create the Action

    Step 1

    Go to the Layers panel and select the HOLO layer. After that, go to Window > Actions to open the Actions panel. Then click on Create new set and name it My Text effects. After that, click on Create new action and name it Holographic Text effect

    Now Photoshop is recording the actions you make. Keep an eye on the Actions panel. You can delete any mistake by selecting it and clicking on the trash bin icon.

    Creating a new action

    Step 2

    Rename the HOLO layer to HOLO - A (be careful here—don't deselect the HOLO layer). Then right-click on it and choose Convert to Smart Object.

    Converting the layer to a Smart Object

    Step 3

    Now press Control-T to activate the Transform. Then uncheck the Maintain aspect ratio option and vertically scale the text down to 59%. Don't press Enter yet; keep the Transform active.

    Scaling down the text layer

    Step 4

    Right-click on the Transform box and choose Perspective. Then click on the top-right point of the Transform box and drag it 22º to the left. After that, press Enter to apply the transformation.

    Applying perspective to the text

    Step 5

    Now go to Window > Styles to open the Styles panel. The layer styles we created before will be in this panel. Search for the HOLO - A style and click on it to apply it to the layer.

    After that, go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and set the Angle to 80º and Distance to 68 pixels.

    The motion blur is going to help with the 3D effect on the final result.

    After that, pick the Move Tool (V) and move the HOLO - B layer 60 px up.

    • Blend Mode: Normal
    • Opacity: 19%
    • Noise: 0%
    • Color: #3253ff
    • Technique: Softer

    • Size: 156 px

    And We're Done!

    Here's how it should look:

    Holographic 3d text effect

    In this tutorial, we created a holographic text effect Photoshop action. First, we created two layer styles, and then we merged both of them and applied a motion blur to simulate a 3D effect. Now you can apply the same text effect to any font you want with a single click.

    To play it, you need to select the action Holographic Text Effect and click Play on the Actions panel.
