    captions for photos

    dc111652
      I would really like to add captions to the bottom of my photos on my pages. I can insert the photo ok and wrap the text as I like it, but then I need to add the captions underneath the pic. How can I do this? I am a GoLive user just learning Dreamweaver--it is so difficult compared to GoLive.
      Thanks,
      Dorie

          May not be the best way, but I wrap the image in a div and put the caption
          as a paragraph below the image. Simple. Clean. Works.

            This is DW's way of telling you that you need to spend some more time
            learning HTML and CSS. With good familiarity there, DW will be quite
            intuitive. But it is definitely NOT GoLive, so you should try to not expect
            it to be so....
