Re: image ready vs. dreamweaver

From: Daniel Piechnick


Hi. The problem with making a hwole page in Photoshop / Imageready is that you can't do unusual things. For instance, what does your site look like when viewed at different resolutions? Since there are no %-based elements, the whole thing just gets smaller. Those kinds of programs also tend to create redundant table structures, by putting every image in its own cell. Also, you definitely want to put the text in your page by typing it in, in a web editor. I've seen pages where the text is all saved as a jpeg or gif file, and the user has to wait for it to load. If you're a newbie, these kinds of ready-made pages might be useful, but if you have any idea of how to use your web editor, then I'd recommend saving the images and putting them into your page manually.
