Which type of image files is better use in dreamweaver? Like should the buttons be make of jpg files or draw in vertor or in flash? As to not slow down the speed for the user when viewing the web.

Hya,
I have no web page experience in Dreamweaver. I did create a long time ago a web site in Frontpage. don't remind me...lmaoooo

You can export from Flash, makes nice buttons. you can exprt from Fireworks a lot use that software. vectors to me as art sometimes don't look quite realistic some how.

Vector art is ok for such as this site:

I love it!

Its a story of two lovers parted so they drown together rather than be apart.

Am a softie.

General rule of thumb is that photos should be JPG (larger color palette), while graphics with areas of solid colors (like navigation buttons) should be GIF.
If in doubt, try both and se which quality/filesize you like better :)
