Chapter 5. Working with Images > Placing an Image

Placing an Image

Dreamweaver gives you several easy ways to place images onto your Web pages. We'll start with a simple image insertion and move on to using the Assets panel or the Files panel.

To place an image

1.
With the desired page open in the Document window, click at the place on the page where you'd like the image to appear.

(Until you devise more complex page layouts, you'll be placing the image along the left margin or within a text block. You can change image alignment options later; you can also insert images within table cells or layers. See the tips at the end of this task.)

2.
From the menu bar, select Insert > Image (Figure 5.2).

or

Click on the Image menu button in the Common category of the Insert bar (Figure 5.3). From the drop-down menu, select Image .

or

Press Ctrl+Alt+I (Command+Option+I).

Regardless of the method, the Select Image Source dialog box will appear (Figures 5.4 and 5.5).

3.
If you know the location of the image on the Web or on your computer, type it in the URL text box.

or

Browse through the files and folders on your computer until you find the image file. Click on the image file's icon or file name, so that its name appears in the File name text box.

4.
Click OK (Open/Choose) to close the Select Image Source dialog box. The image will appear at the insertion point in the Document window.
