Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 [With Paperback Book] (Learn by Video) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This critically acclaimed product from Adobe Press and video2brain combines exceptional quality HD video and a printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Dreamweaver CS6 as well as the basic principles of web design. Structured around the objectives of the Adobe Certified Associate exam 'Web Communication Using Adobe Dreamweaver CS6', the product includes 13 hours of video, complete with lesson files (included on the DVD), assessment quizzes, and review materials. The video's unique interface allows the viewer to jump to any topic and bookmark favorite sections. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to follow along with the instructor in Dreamweaver.

Experienced instructor David Powers shows you how to build modern, standards-compliant websites using Dreamweaver CS6. David starts with a quick overview of what Dreamweaver is used for, then goes into the nuts and bolts of HTML: the language that governs the appearance of web pages, and how web pages are assembled and connected to create an entire web site. He shows you how to add text to a page, then to add images and hyperlinks.

To add visual sophistication to the design, David introduces Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and shows how to add special effects to objects, like rounded corners and drop shadows. Further topics include multimedia (video, audio, and Flash), tables, forms, and managing large sites with many pages. Finally, David shows how to use Media Queries to make your site look good on any screen, from a desktop to a tiny mobile device.
