Visual QuickStart Month!

Welcome to Visual QuickStart month at Peachpit Press!

From the beginning, our Visual QuickStart Guides have been a hit with readers everywhere, and their popularity - like the topics the VQSes cover - just keeps growing. Case in point: our new guides to Macromedia's Dreamweaver and Fireworks.

If you're on the Web - or plan to be - these programs give you the power to build compelling sites with dazzling graphics. For a preview of what you can accomplish with these apps, check out our special Macromedia Web Combo Week features, below.

Look for this display in your local bookstores. It's packed with all our popular Visual QuickStart Guides so you can find the titles you need.

Macromedia Web Combo

There's no such thing as "the Web." Sandee Cohen, author of our Fireworks for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide, points out that just as there is no "the Print," the Web is not a single entity, but a collection of vastly different sites, with disparate goals and design concerns. She tells you what tools you need to get online and spread your message - whatever it may be - to the world.

The universal nature of the Web is one of its most-touted features, but not all browsers - or online connections - are created equal. To help level the playing field for all your visitors, just follow these tips we've culled from our Dreamweaver and Fireworks VQSes on how to create frames-free content, for those whose browsers don't support frames, and how to split graphics so they download more quickly and efficiently.
