Adding Images

GoLive gives you several ways to bring images into a Web page. You can use an Objects palette icon to do it. Or, if you're working within a GoLive site, you can use Point & Shoot (dragging from the Inspector to the Site window to build a link). You can even import images in non-Web-friendly formats by dragging and dropping them from your hard drive (see "Importing Images") into a GoLive document. Finally, you can add images to your pages that were created in Adobe software products including Photoshop, Illustrator, and LiveMotion by using a GoLive Smart Object. With SmartObjects, you add a Web-friendly version of a high-quality image to a GoLive document. SmartObjects make it possible for you to edit the original image in Photoshop, Illustrator, or LiveMotion. The changes you make are then applied to the Web version.

To add an image with the Objects palette:

With the Layout Editor visible, drag the Image icon (Figure 5.1) from the Objects palette into the Document window. An image placeholder appears in the Document window, and the Inspector window displays the Image Inspector (Figure 5.2).

Figure 5.2. When you add an image to a page, the Image Inspector's Basic tab is displayed.


Double-click the Image icon. A placeholder appears in the Document window. If you're using a layout grid or a table to build your page, you may need to move the image placeholder to the spot where you want the image to appear.

In the Inspector, click the Browse button (the icon that looks like a folder, next to the Source field).

Locate a GIF or JPEG image file that you would like to add to the Web page, and select it. The image appears in the GoLive Document window at full size (Figure 5.3).
