Pasting from Photoshop to Dreamweaver

Sep 8, 2006 1:20 PM

I recently switched from GoLive to Dreamweaver. One thing I have not been able to do that I miss tremendously is copy an image in Photoshop and paste it into Dreamweaver. In GoLive when you did this, you would get a save for web dialogue allowing you to save it in the format you want, then it would appear in the HTML document. When I try to paste into Dreamweaver, it acts as if there is nothing on the clipboard at all. I've checked to make sure Photoshop is indeed exporting the image on the clipboard (by pasting into other apps) but it just does not work in Dreamweaver.

Any ideas?

    From Photoshop or Paint shop Pro I finish the image, optimize it and 'Save
    to' a folder in my site's files. That's pretty easy!

    Those of us who have not had that functionality before, don't miss it.
    ;-) It does sound like a nice idea. Suggest it here:

    One possiable solution is use Fireworks instead of Photoshop. Being Fireworks is made by Macromedia, that can speed up your work because the integration between the 2 is easier being they are both from the same company. I can transfer anything from Fireworks to Dreamweaver but I cannot say the same for Flash to Dreamweaver, that is a complete mystery to me.

    Good luck

    After the paste into GL, you still have to deal with the Save dialog,
    didn't you? So you really had four steps, right?

    Using the 7 step method:

    New Doc (Ctrl-N)
    Paste (Ctrl-V)

    Takes about a second.

    My images directory updates just fine without a manual refresh, so that
    drops a step.

    So you've gone from four steps to six. I know this has disrupted your
    accustomed work flow and, until you get used to it, it will seem very
    slow to you. However, the actual impact is pretty small. Give it a bit
    of time and see if it doesn't become more natural to you. And do make
    the suggestion.

    Just curious: where in the process do you optimize for the web?

    Happy to hear it. Let's hope it makes it in a future version.

    Hugh: I'm just curious - what does your family history have to do with DW?
    Or your new phone for that matter?

    it is a usenet convention called a "signature"
    I use nntp to read this group
    in Mozilla 1.7.13 suite

    the two dashes are a delimiter which enables newsreaders to ignore all
    which follows according to the settings

    Check my sig. It's not like I don't know what those are! 8)

    I'm just curious why you are promoting such things in a DW forum?
