Product Description

From the Back Cover

GoLive CS is more than just a simple Web authoring tool: As part of Adobe's new Creative Suite (which includes Photoshop and Acrobat), it's a key component of an overall Web workflow that lets you work seamlessly among all of your graphics applications to create spectacular Web sites. This info-packed guide lets users get right down to doing by focusing on just the GoLive features they're mostly like to use and showcasing each in a stand-alone tip--complete with a relevant hint or two and a graphic example. In this fashion, you learn as you go, exploring the program in a way that makes sense to you. Before you know it, you'll be importing layered Photoshop files into GoLive, creating PDF files from within the GoLive environment, and using the visual layout grid and Cascading Style Sheets to turn out fluid, beautiful Web pages. Also covered are all of GoLive CS' new features: better coding tools, on-the-fly style rendering, and more.

Format: Paperback
Well that is cheap! For a book with no flouncy rubbish about zen gardens, or "I do have a life really" clobbage that web celeb. authors seem to want to fill their pages with, and no long, achingly drawn out, repetative explainations that turn a problem solving browse into an infuriating haul. (If you've been there you've probably got Adobe GoLive CS Classroom in a Book)
No - This is how it should be, vital and useful tips that are straight forward, easy to find, easy to read, easy to follow, with pictures, all of which will make you look like you know what you're doing.
Well done those guys! (Adam Pratt & Lynn Grillo), go get a job with Adobe and re-write that GoLive CS Classroom in a Book the same way.

Excellent book, well explained and easy to read and use. I can only recommend it. So much more interesting than the Adobe's User Guide because they explain not only how to use the program but the best way to use it !

HASH(0x91217930) out of 5 stars Finally, A GoLive Book that Shines! 11 Sept. 2004
By Giovanny Gutierrez - Published on
Format: Paperback
I recently met the Author Adam Pratt at Mac Designers Conference this year in Chicago and Adam introduced me to GoLive CS, I was hooked within 20 minutes. Reading this book is like speaking to Adam but instead of 20 minutes, it feels like a 6-8 hour training. The book is simple and effective for the beginner and full of tips and tricks for the intermediate user already using GoLive. It covers the basics from setting up the site to advanced features like creating cool Quicktime slideshows with GoLive's impressive QuickTime editor. The book is filled with great resources such as hidden shortcuts (for Mac & PC), detailed descriptions of each object and there's even a resource listing sites that are full of GoLive Tutorials.

Being a Senior Web Developer and College Instructor, I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.

HASH(0x9122300c) out of 5 stars Both new and old users of GoLive can learn something 6 Sept. 2004
By Tjäder Nini - Published on
Format: Paperback
It might be easy to dismiss this book as simply a tips and tricks book without any real depth if you just have a quick look at it, but it is much more than that. This book explains in images and short and clear texts how to do something, points at easy to miss buttons and explains what to do with them, and fills in your knowledgegaps about GoLive. It also adds understanding to what GoLive can do and how to do it. The texts might look short, but together with the images they are quite enough to give you that aha-experience of understanding. I've used GoLive since it was GoLive Cyber Studio 2, long before Adobe bought it, and today use GoLive CS. I've used GoLive daily for years. I've really enjoyed this book and learned a lot of new things that I didn't know before or have missed somehow over the years just because I've used GoLive for such a long time. I warmly recommend it to both new and old users. It has something for both the novice and the more experienced user. Buy it! Read it! GoLive will be all that more fun to work with after having gone through this book.

HASH(0x9193bc60) out of 5 stars GoLive CS Tips & Tricks 25 Oct. 2004
By Deb T - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a great catalyst for experienced as well as new GoLive users. It's great way to learn all those little hidden, new or forgotten goodies in GoLive, whether you want to know how to be a more efficient GoLive user or want to know what you've been missing and don't have the time to learn. This book is a quick, enjoyable, easy read. I'm already looking forward to a "More Tips & Tricks!" book, but it's hard to imagine they've missed any with this one.

HASH(0x9131b600) out of 5 stars good companion to a standard GoLive text 24 Nov. 2004
By W Boudville - Published on
Format: Paperback
Adobe offers GoLive as a powerful tool to build pages in a website. It is complicated enough that the authors of this book present 200 tips, to perform common and useful tasks.

The contents pages show a titular summary of the tips. Given that GoLive is from Adobe, it's no surprise to see an emphasis on the visual presentation of the pages. Typical is a tip about writing links in PDF documents, or another tip about converting an HTML file, and any associated referenced images, into a single PDF document. Of course, there are also several tips involving Adobe's flagship Photoshop.

Overall, the tips seem straightforward to understand and do. This appears to have been a deliberate choice by the authors. The book is most useful if you already have the basics of GoLive. A good companion to a standard text on GoLive.

HASH(0x91216dbc) out of 5 stars Excellent book and very reasonably priced. 3 Aug. 2004
By Blueberry - Published on
Format: Paperback
Full of good ideas (much beyond what the "Tips and Tricks" wording in the title might suggest). Well written. Well organized. Why Adobe cannot manage to user guides that are remotely as helpful as this book is, we will likely never know. In any case, this book is very complementary to the Adobe GoLive CS User Guide.
