Currently I am using CS 6 Dreamweaver and I am trying to figure out how to have an embossed background for a website (or page).
I know about using a slice from Photoshop and applying to the background but the emboss part of the image does not show in Dreamweaver I just get the color.
Do I need to use another application in the CS Cloud Suite to create an embossed image? I am only familiar with Photoshop, Dreamweaver and a bit of Flash.
I am in the process of learning how the Cloud apps work together.
Any help would be appreciated.
Yes, you understand me perfectly. I can only get the image to tile, which is not an affect I want.
So I make the image in Photoshop and I guess the only way for it not to tile is to make it huge. Cause who knows what resolution or size monitor it will be viewed at.
Am I thinking correctly about this?
I have tinkering with websites since the mid 90's and kind of serious with Dreamweaver for a year and now working at it almost everyday.
And as usual the more I learn the more I realize how little I know. haha.
Basic HTML-wise, yes. To have an image cover a huge background, it needs to be huge.
CSS-wise, not exactly. You can set a large image to repeat once so it doesn't tile, is positioned exactly where you like and a few other things.
You can also set the image to scale to the browser window with CSS, however it won't work on old browsers...
