Chapter 2. Setting Up a Local Site > Previewing and Inserting Assets

Previewing and Inserting Assets

The Assets panel lets you preview items before inserting them.

To preview an asset:

  • Select the asset in the Assets panel.

    • If the asset is an image, a preview will appear (Figure 2.55).

      Figure 2.55. A preview of the image will appear.


    • If the asset is a color, the tone will appear in the list box, and the preview area will display the Hex and RGB codes for the color (Figure 2.56).

      Figure 2.56. The hex and RGB codes for the color will appear, and you'll see the color in use as text. See Chapter 3 for more on color codes.


    • If the asset is a URL, the preview area will display the full path (Figure 2.57).

      Figure 2.57. The preview area shows the full URL.


    • If the asset is a Flash, Shockwave, or other movie, a placeholder will appear in the preview area (Figure 2.58). Click the green Play arrow to play the movie. You may need to mouse over some objects for them to play. Click the red Stop button to stop the movie once you've played it.

      Figure 2.58. If your Flash object is made by Dreamweaver (Flash text or Flash button), it'll appear as in Figure 2.45. Otherwise, you'll get a placeholder and a Play button.
