Creative professionals seeking the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 choose Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Classroom in a Book from the Adobe Creative Team at Adobe Press.
The 18 project-based lessons in this book show readers step-by-step the key techniques for working in Dreamweaver CS5. Readers learn what they need to know to create a professional website without having to delve into code. This completely revised CS5 edition covers Adobe's Spry framework for Ajax to create dynamic interfaces, Spry widgets (pre-built user interface components) to quickly add common components to Web pages; and Live View, a working browser rendering right in the program. The book also shows how to enter text in headings, paragraphs, lists, and tables; insert graphics and Photoshop Smart Objects; add links to text and images; apply cascading style sheets; and customize the Dreamweaver workspace. Readers will also learn to add interactive elements to their sites, such as Flash video and animation, get guidance for working with code, and finally publish a finished site to the Web.
The companion DVD includes lesson files so readers can work along with the book, as well as 2 hours of FREE video tutorials from 'Learn Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 by Video' by video2brain and Adobe Press.
