Book Description

25 Jun 2012 0321840372 978-0321840370 1
This critically acclaimed product from Adobe Press and video2brain combines exceptional quality HD video and a printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Dreamweaver CS6 as well as the basic principles of web design. Structured around the objectives of the Adobe Certified Associate exam 'Web Communication Using Adobe Dreamweaver CS6', the product includes 13 hours of video, complete with lesson files (included on the DVD), assessment quizzes, and review materials. The video's unique interface allows the viewer to jump to any topic and bookmark favorite sections. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to follow along with the instructor in Dreamweaver.

Experienced instructor David Powers shows you how to build modern, standards-compliant websites using Dreamweaver CS6. David starts with a quick overview of what Dreamweaver is used for, then goes into the nuts and bolts of HTML: the language that governs the appearance of web pages, and how web pages are assembled and connected to create an entire web site. He shows you how to add text to a page, then to add images and hyperlinks.

To add visual sophistication to the design, David introduces Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and shows how to add special effects to objects, like rounded corners and drop shadows. Further topics include multimedia (video, audio, and Flash), tables, forms, and managing large sites with many pages. Finally, David shows how to use Media Queries to make your site look good on any screen, from a desktop to a tiny mobile device.

More About the Author

I specialize in writing about web design using Dreamweaver, PHP, and CSS. PHP is the most popular server-side language that brings life to websites by communicating with external data sources, such as databases, news feeds, and XML documents. Adobe has recognized my expertise in web development by appointing me an Adobe Community Professional (ACP) for Dreamweaver. You'll often find me giving help in the Dreamweaver forums and Dreamweaver Community Help.

Before turning my hand to writing about web design, I spent nearly 30 years as a BBC radio and TV journalist, working both in front of the microphone/camera and behind the scenes. That gave me a wealth of experience in explaining sometimes difficult concepts in straightforward, easy to understand language - experience which shows through in my books.

I spent a large part of my broadcasting career in Japan, first on loan from the BBC to NHK, the Japan Broadcasting Corporation, and later as BBC correspondent. I have traveled all over Japan, and love taking photos, many of which end up being used in my books. Over the years, I have worked closely with the Shiki Theatrical Company, Japan's leading producer of musicals; and have translated several of their plays into English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value DVD ROM! 9 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This Adobe CS6: Learn by Video: Core Training...DVD ROM is truly excellent! The look and feel of this video is of high quality and it's nice to have it narrated by a Brit' rather than an american, for a change.

Unlike the Infinite Skills video's it will go to full screen and also open in a small window to be viewed while working, although I would not recommend watching in a small window as you will miss the details on what's being spoken about.

It takes up 5 GIG on my hard-drive although Infinite Skills would only be around 1.5 GIG but for over twice the price. You decide...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Informative 1 Sep 2013
By Magpie
Highly informative, packed with information. Very good value. Clear concise narration, by a very well spoken British gentleman (David Powers). I had run across David Powers before on Adobe's site where he often writes and answers queries. These video tutorials are excellent. You will need a notebook and pen in hand as he packs a lot into each few minute segment. Really well done. Delighted with the depth of information. I also found David Powers very personable and likeable - I genuinely looked forward to doing each tutorial.

5.0 out of 5 stars good training video 3 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this gives the information in clear, smallish sections. Easy to follow and presented very clearly. I would recommend this as a way to learn dreamweaver - especially if you have some basic knowledge of html and css.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product but confusing 2 May 2013
By KenS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This learning package is very informative so long as you follow the video sections in order. The only downside is the lack of instruction regarding location of the various exercise files and how to load then into the folders correctly. Once you have your head around that the instruction for me as a complete novice to Dreamweaver is very good.

Instructional video with a little too much theory for me - I just wanted to get going. When designing the step by step instructions were easy to follow
