    I did webdesign for about 7 years (among other things). Do you know html? Other than putting pretty pictures on a website and turning them into links, knowing the intricacy of the code makes life a heck load easier. Dreamweaver itself is very easy to use - very point and click. get urself a few books. other than that there are millions of sites where you can just copy and paste code from as well. Almost everyone of 'em. If you need help just holler. I'm quietly confident you dont need to do a course on it - a waste of money if you ask me.

    A list of sites u might like

    I just remembered. When I was doing website design Dreamweaver was owned by macromedia. If you had a legit program you could sign up for free and use their tutorials - they were damn good too. Now dreamweaver and the like is owned by adobe - they may have the same deal, I don't know. I just had a quick look to confirm. Adobe does have a support where u can download tutorials.

    I am pretty sure you can... it does depend on the version of dreamweaver you have... if you have a version that does not support streaming video, the code to do so is very easily pastable from any website, you just need to know how to edit the code to get your videos images and sound on the page. Usually just needs editing the name of the file.

    not free, but it's well worth the $$.

    I've been programming sites in Dreamweaver for a few years. The more code writing ability you have, the better. Lynda.com is good for programs and sitepoint.com for programming manuals.

    FYI, HP Learning center has a free Dreamweaver class starting up now. Good luck.

    I know this was asked a while back but this might still help someone if not the person that asked the question. Whenever I need to make a website(not often) or update my webpage I use this web page. It tells you how to make a web page using Dreamweaver step by step. It has some tips too to get dreamweaver to work in a more professional way.

    Thx NetoAnAstro for the link. That website is great. I have tried to use dreamwaver on several occasions but was never satisfied with my work entirely. That website already gave me some answers, Thank you again for pasting it here.
