dreamweaver is very easy, my year 7's use it in school.... and good choice using a mac :thumbsup:
#2
oh really? can you actually view it like on word so you see how it lookls??
#3
ermmm, you can view it as a webpage using F12 on the pc, not sure what you press on the mac as i dont have it on mine, but i would imagine you could, where are you going to get it from?

Im currently in year 10 im taking ICT as a GCSE we are using dreamweaver to make are own websites. it is very easy once you know the basics you then start to pick up skills as you go on

Oh right! Well thats great, as long as you can see it like a webpage instead of HTML - would be great. WIll buy a tutorial dvd I think as theyre only 10 pounds. I would post my existing site up here as I have worked really hard on it but i dont think it wil let me. I use a mac for composing - more reliable for audio :)

IM using dreamweaver at the mo and there are 3 views. A code view for editing HTML, CSS etc aswell as design view so you can manipulate the page visually and a split view forseeing both. There is also a live view built into the design and split view which shows you exactly how the page will appear, although sometimes can be a pain and things dont appear exactly as they show but a bit of trial and error fixes it and it works most of the time :D

I'm sure there are many good videos on Youtube where you can see how it works.:thumbsup:

Thats great then! Thanks for all your help think I will buy it before I leave uni, can't go wrong for 90 pounds

bargain although i would pay the £150 and get the package, remember if your buying it from software for students you need to send of for the validation code from adobe the site just provides box and disc so make sure your a student!

This is through my university :) 90 pounds student discount price. I have bought logic studio 9 from uni last year for 90 pounds - the full works hehe

I do alot of work with Dreamweaver CS3. Pretty straight forward for basic web design. IF your prepared to take the time to learn, there isnt much you can't do with it. To be honest tho, if all your doing is basic web design and dont want to go near any HTML code, you'd be spending £90 on a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Stick with what you have if it works or have a look around google as there are some great free programs about.

btw.. When you see and work with the result and not the code, its called WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). :) Screenshot you asked for;

*Edit, sorry is a bit big, but cba to mess around with it now.

thanks for the input mate, well I do want to learn how to use it - and I can use the WYSIWYG easily. Thing is , I have only designed my site on an online builder - so it isn't too good i'm afraid. Plus, there are somethings I cannot do , such as using my own fonts.

Bear in mind that which ever font you use, if the viewer doesn't have that font installed on their computer, they will see the default font for sites which is either times new roman or arial. This will mess with how your site looks to different people.
If you want to use a different fonts that everyone can see, look at Cufon

Hello, sorry - bit of confusion. My career is composing for film and video games. However, I wanted to design my own site. I have made a good job using WIX, editing all of the pages as my own - getting rid of the templates. But I want to get the DREAMWEAVER mainly because it is 90 pounds student discount, and Is the best of the best for web design. I have the demo, free trial version - but it looks so complicated!! Where is the best place to start??

Also, Kroozing, you mentioned about the fonts - that's a big shame! On WIX I have used JPG to show the fonts so it works ok, but when I start using Dreamweaver, how can I overcome this problem?

you can still use images to display the font like you would in wix, if you've got alot then it means quite a bit of work on your part preparing the images either way is fine, the cufon way replace the text with an image on the fly so there is very little work involved in getting the look you want.
cufon works with javascript so you insert the javascript in to the code side of the page your creating

If you want some help and tips, try here for tutorials

no you have to call a javascript file but you can do it all in dreamweaver, if you have a look at the cufon website it will tell you how to impliment it.
cheers
