Book News Annotation:
This handy guide provides readers with a good foundation for using Adobe Dreamweaver to create their own websites. Taught in a building block style, with references to both Photoshop and other graphics programs to ease the transition of using a new program, the guide is also backward compatible with Adobe Creative Suite 3 and 4, though written for 5. Wolper, a long time graphics software educator, ensures that readers and students will always have a frame of reference for the subject at hand. The work is divided into two parts, the first covering design aspects before ever using Dreamweaver, and the second focusing on execution--actually creating a website using Adobe Dreamweaver. Each chapter contains a "reinforce your knowledge" section and "build your own website" section and a CD-ROM with images, useful websites and other resources is included. This text is also set up to be used as a textbook, offering secured online instructo‛ resources including quizzes, solutions, PowerPoint slides and more.
