Hi to you all, I am very new to web design. Have been playing with Dreamweaver MX now for about 2 months, managed to construct some web pages, but what I would love to do is have my index page with graphics rather than just a picture. I thought I could do this using Adobe photoshop but I'm stuck. Having reviewed some of the help furum web designs, I would be too embarrassed to ask for your opinion on my first attempt. I have the basic knowledge, but lack the know-how of how to design backgrounds for pages. Any advise would be appreciated.

Regards

Thanks for your help.
As you say, you have to start somewhere. Well now its those dark nights and not much on tv its practise time on Dreamweaver.
One thing for certain "I'll be back"

Regards

but you're not alone. Come here when you need help or constructive criticism, and don't be worried about how amateurish your first attempts might look. I can well remember my first site - what a mess it was, and how long it took to make even the smallest alterations.

As Taran says, consider having a plain white background. You would think it pretty weird if you were given say, a book about football, and it had yellow text on grass-green pages. Likewise with a web site. Many people feel compelled to use a fancy background, simply because they can, but most modern information sites will have plain white, or at the very most a pale, plain colour.

Finally, take a look at this
click here It's a DreamWeaver tutorial for beginners. It's based on DreamWeaver 3 but don't be deterred if you have a different version, the basics will apply anyway.

We'll look forward to hearing from you again when you're ready.
