Tracing Images Using Dreamweaver

By: CivicCX

Objective:  The objective of this tutorial is to teach you how to trace an image, meaning how to write text over an image using Dream weaver.

1)  The first step is to open up a new document or an existing document/web page in Macromedia Dream weaver.

2)  Next go to view then scroll down to tracing image.  Another menu will pop up and scroll to the right and select Load...

3)  Next, a dialog box will appear that says Select Image Source on the top of the window.  Browse for an image which you want to "trace" on in Dreamweaver.  Once you have that image selected hit select.


4)  Once hitting select another dialog box will appear as shown below.   Pick a title for the picture which your tracing over and select the background, and text as well.  You can adjust any other properties of the picture which you want at this time too.

5)  When selecting Apply, and hitting okay, your image will be inserted as part of your background now in your workspace area.  You can now type over your image as shown in the figure below.
