I use Fireworks and then slice up my comp and export as
nested tables to Dreamweaver. What I would like to do is export it
with the image pieces as the background of the table cells with a
transparent gif overlay, to help prevent image theft. I know no
method is fool proof, but is there a way to do this in Fireworks
without having to manually go back and change all of the image
pieces to the background of the cells?
Not really, no. And of course by "no" I mean, sortof ... I'm
to do this, but
I imagine this would be HUGELY complicated and not for the
faint of heart.
FYI: modern web design practices discourage the use of tables
to lay out
your web pages. Tables should only be used for displaying
tabular data (ex.
stats). Instead you should be using div & span tags along
with CSS to lay
out your site(s). In the long run this will give you a LOT
as your sites grow and become more complicated
