Lesson 3. Designing Web Pages > Adding an image using the pick whip button

Adding an image using the pick whip button

When you create an image for use on the Web, you work in a program such as Illustrator or Photoshop, and then save the image in a Web-safe format such as GIF or JPEG. It's also a good idea to maintain the source file in its original format and resolution, in case you need to make changes to the image in the future. In GoLive, you can add Web-formatted images to the page using a variety of methods.

You can also add images to a page using GoLive Smart Objects, which can save you both time and effort. Using Smart Objects, you can drag an image's source file (such as a native Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop file) to a page and optimize the image for the Web directly in GoLive. GoLive creates a Web-formatted version of the image in a target file that it adds to the page. When you update the source file, GoLive automatically regenerates the target file to update the image on the page (see Lesson 6, “Using Smart Objects”).
