With the release of Adobe's Creative Suite 5, the integration that Web developers and graphic designers had once only dreamed about continues to become a reality. The Web COLLECTION REVEALED PREMIUM EDITION is the first book on the market to feature Adobe Dreamweaver®, Adobe Flash®, and Adobe Photoshop® all together in the same text. Readers gain practical experience with the software as they work through end-of-chapter learning projects and step-by-step tutorials. An integration chapter demonstrates how to move from one application to the other while creating a Dreamweaver website that incorporates both Flash and Photoshop files. Full-color illustrations and a user-friendly design combine to create a solid learning experience that reveals how to master the latest features of these popular applications.
