Lesson 11. Integrating with Dreamweaver MX

Lesson 11. Integrating with Dreamweaver MX

In the previous lessons, you used Fireworks to create a logo and other graphic elements such as the guitar and CD. You also designed several Web pages. Except in the few places where you added a text slice, your HTML pages are mostly images. More than likely, you will want to add text to your pages.

Macromedia Dreamweaver MX is a robust visual Web page authoring tool, and Macromedia Fireworks MX is a powerful design and graphics editor. Used together, Fireworks MX and Dreamweaver MX are the dynamic duo of Web design tools. The two programs offer integration features to aid your workflow as you design and optimize your graphics, build your HTML pages, and place Web graphics on the page.

In this lesson, you will use Dreamweaver MX to edit the pages created by Fireworks, return to Fireworks to change the graphics, and then return to Dreamweaver MX to make other edits. The tight integration between the two applications makes these tasks as simple as clicking a button.

In this lesson you will export your pages as HTML files and then open them in Dreamweaver MX. You will create a Dreamweaver template and create new HTML pages from the template such as the page shown here.
