Using Images in a Web Page
This video discusses using images in a web page in Dreamweaver.Whatever type of website you are planning, images will undoubtedly play a big role in helping to get your ideas across.
It is important to remember that Dreamweaver isn’t an image editing program. This means that you will have to prepare some of your images beforehand, using another program like Adobe Photoshop, so that they can be inserted into your web pages. Making sure that your images are of the correct file type and size will help to ensure that your website functions correctly, that you stay within bandwidth requirements, and that your images look as good as possible.
It’s a very good idea to sit down with pen and paper beforehand, and make a list of all of the images that your website will need. As you start to consider banners, buttons, and other visual elements, you may realize that you will need to prepare more images than you originally thought. You can save yourself a lot of frustration by carefully planning and preparing your images. That way, when it comes time to build your site, you won’t have to stop again and again to create the image files that you will need. Planning your images beforehand also allows you to size them exactly to your needs, which helps to give your finished website a professional, polished look.
