Hour 7. Displaying Images > Editing Images Within Dreamweaver

Editing Images Within Dreamweaver

Although you will probably want to become somewhat familiar with a graphics tool to create and optimize images to put in your websites, Dreamweaver has a few basic image-editing capabilities to explore. In Hour 8, “Optimizing and Creating Images,” you'll explore how to use Macromedia Fireworks for image editing. Dreamweaver has several image-editing tools built right in:

  • Edit— Opens the selected image in Fireworks for editing (of course, you need to have Macromedia Fireworks or another image-editing program defined in the Preferences dialog box for this command to work).

  • Optimize— Opens the selected image in the Fireworks optimization window. You'll learn more about this in Hour 8. This command requires that you have Fireworks installed.

  • Crop— Lets you trim off unwanted portions of the image and saves the smaller file. This command works within Dreamweaver, enabling you to save the cropped image.

  • Resample— This command becomes active after you've resized an image in Dreamweaver. It optimizes an image by adding or removing pixels in the image. This command works within Dreamweaver.

  • Brightness and Contrast— Changes the brightness and contrast of an image to correct an image that is too bright or too dark. This command works within Dreamweaver.

  • Sharpen— Sharpens a blurry image. This command works within Dreamweaver.
