Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Creative professionals seeking the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 choose Adobe Dreamweaver CS6: Classroom in a Book from the Adobe Creative Team. The 15 project-based lessons in this book show you step by step everything you need to know to work in Dreamweaver CS6. You’ll learn to create a professional website without having to write code by hand.

This completely revised CS6 edition also covers HTML5, CSS3, and media queries for responsive web design. The book also shows how to create HTML-based headings, paragraphs, lists, and tables; insert graphics and Photoshop Smart Objects; add links to text and images; apply cascading styles sheets; and customize the Dreamweaver workspace. You’ll also learn to add interactive elements to your sites, such as HTML5-compatible video and animation, get guidance for working with code, and finally publish a finished site to the Web.

The companion DVD includes all lesson files so you can work along with the book, as well as, two hours of free video tutorials from Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 Learn by Video.

**Breaking News! In September 2012 Adobe released an update to Dreamweaver offering new features for Creative Cloud customers, that give you the ability to easily add HTML5 tags, audio, video and Adobe Edge Animate compositions to your projects, and quickly find files with real-time search results on Mac OS. Register your book at to receive a free update that covers these features, including a completely new chapter, “Making Your Web Design Mobile-Ready.”
