Resolved Question

Would like to learn to build frames in my template

for Dreamweaver CS5 site. I have Photoshop CS5 and Fireworks CS5 as well. I hope this explains it and I am going to try a screenshot here. I want borders for my pictures and the boxes would need to be expandeable for different sizes of photos?? Can someone help me and basically lead me to a "good" tutorial or just explain how to. I have Paint Net, Photoscape and Photoshop, all latest versions.

thanks, Denise

Frames, borders, expandable
Would like to learn to build frames in my template for Dreamweaver CS5 site.

In development terms, a frame is a "window" on a website in which you can see contents from another URL and navigating within a frame usually does not affect anything outside of it. As great as that may sound, most of the time you'd want to avoid them. Just google "frames on websites" and you'll see some of the points people are making e.g. not search engine friendly, bookmarking problems, etc.

Here's Adobe's guide on how to create/use frames in CS5:

I want borders for my pictures and the boxes would need to be expandeable for different sizes of photos?

Borders around pictures can easily be achieved via CSS. Something like this:

img { border: 1px solid #000; }


Will add a black border around pictures.

If you use CSS the borders/box will automatically expand depending on the size of the photo.

Thank you much

I was hoping to find a way to make something fancier than just a black border for your content but my guess is you have to do it in photoshop for example and import it into your borders. IN DW CS5 though, it only allow for colors(from pallette). I study your links, thank you againHappy You can close this threadHappy denise

Also, I see I need to use an image and use html to insert

it into the code. That I get, I think, LOLWink It's link has to be in code.

Depending on the type

of visitors to your site and what browsers they use, you may also want to explore CSS3 border effects and also CSS3 box-shadow.

It was probably

a spam post that was then deleted by one of moderators.
