    problems with images in dreamweaver

    dimitriv78598095 Level 1

      so cc dreamweaver

       

      i can' drag my image from local files to te design screen, wich is funny because because i could do it 30 minutes ago with no problem it just suddenly i can't do it anymore

      -  second now i need to do i with the insert menu, but i cant chance te size with my mouse, and inserting the numbers in the W & H isnt just the same.

      -  also anybody figured out an easy way centering a image?

       

      thanx

          1. Have you tried restarting the program yet? If restarting doesn't bring it back, clearing the program cache may. Turn on your OS's hidden files and try this: Deleting a corrupted cache file

           

          2. Change the size with your mouse? Do you mean you aren't able to grab the corners of the image and drag to resize? See above for possible solution.

           

          3. Centering images is typically done by giving them a css setting of margin:0 auto; and a width setting of something other than 100%, for example...

           

          <img src="yourpic.jpg" style="width:200px; margin:0 auto;" alt="something pithy">

           

          The above image will be 200 pixels wide (the height will resize accordingly) and will appear centered within its parent element.

            i've restarted reinstall, deleted caches

            nothing

            this is ridiculous, i've learned the cs6 version in just a couple of weeks, almost 7 hours on cc and ive still have nothing more than a misplaced logo

            il just go and use wordpress

              CC is much more web standards conscious now.  If you can't work with HTML and CSS code, use Muse.  Muse is aimed at non-coders who just want easy-peasy, basic web sites.

                this is the only code i have

                 

                <!doctype html>

                <html>

                <head>

                <meta charset="utf-8">

                <title>Untitled Document</title>

                </head>

                 

                <body>

                <img src="artwork/logo.png" width="350" height="99" alt=""/>

                </body>

                </html>

                 

                and so i still have not have any of the simplest of functions like dragging an image bigger and smaller with my mouse.

                so basically what you're saying is better learn coding never use dreamweaver but thank you for paying monthly on our broken softwares?

                 

                luckily i'm happy with photoshop illustrator and indesign

                so yeah alright i'll give muse a try

                  Dreamweaver is not drag and drop like a graphics program.

                  Try this code.

                   

                  <!doctype html>

                  <html>

                  <head>

                  <meta charset="utf-8">

                  <title>Untitled Document</title>

                  </head>

                  <style>

                  body {

                      background: #CCC;

                  }

                  .container {

                      background: #FFF;

                      width: 80%;

                      margin: 0 auto;

                      padding: 2%;

                      min-height: 500px;

                  }

                  .logo {

                      max-width: 100%;

                      display: block;

                      vertical-align: baseline;

                      margin: 0 auto;

                  }

                  .center {

                      text-align: center

                  }

                  </style>

                  <body>

                  <div class="container">

                  <h1 class="center">My Awesome Website</h1>

                  <img class="logo" src="http://lorempixel.com/300/100/" alt="logo"> </div>

                  </body>

                  </html>

                    Are you in Live View by chance?

                     

                    Switch to Design View. The Live View Editor, while better than it was when it was first introduced, still doesn't have all the functions from Design View. In your toolbar, click the triangle next to Live and choose Design. That will give you the ability to modify sizes by dragging the corners of selected images...

                      aha thats weird your right, when i started out in dreamweaver the first thing i did was setting it in design mode, than something i did chanced it?

                      thanks !!!

                      although nancy is right, i think i better use muse, this solves the problem with dragging and correcting size of imaging but i still don't no nothing about coding.

                      and picking up coding next to my college studies of marketing and business communication will be pretty rough

                       

                      thanks again for the efford
