i just *LEGALLY* got my hands on a copy of dreamweaver and i need some help, how to you add an image (total noob here :P )<br/>
Dreamweaver is a bit overboard for a beginner...
a bit, more like slaughter
Play with flash first.
I assume you have the site added in manage sites, if not do that first. Open your page, view it in split (button up top a few rows down), place your cursor on the page where you want the picture, click insert from the top (or shortcut keys: ctrl=alt=i), click image, enter alt text if you want and click OK. Should be good to go.<br/><br/>I like the *LEGALLY* comment, makes me feel like I am behind the mall looking at watches in someones coat... =()<br/><br/>Have fun with DW, I love it! <br/>
im ok...thats ummm....yea... i just want to add <br/>a color to this....where do i put the background code color?<br/><br/>&lt;!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC &quot;-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN&quot; &quot;http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd&quot;&gt;<br/>&lt;html xmlns=&quot;http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml&quot;&gt;<br/>&lt;head&gt;<br/>&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;Content-Type&quot; content=&quot;text/html; charset=utf-8&quot; /&gt;<br/>&lt;title&gt;RAWRz&lt;/title&gt;<br/>&lt;/head&gt;<br/><br/>&lt;body&gt; Im a lion<br/>&lt;/body&gt;<br/>&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FOI/P4EJ/FD80X5Q0/FOIP4EJFD80X5Q0.MEDIUM.gif&quot; /&gt;<br/>&lt;/html&gt;<br/>
Without using CSS, the quick and easy is to change the &lt;body&gt; to: &lt;body bgcolor=&quot;#ff6600&quot;&gt;<br/><br/>If you are using IE or FF you can paste your code here and see it live: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.htmlinc.com/lessons/pagebuilder.php">http://www.htmlinc.com/lessons/pagebuilder.php</a><br/>
