Hi

I have designed my webpage in Photoshop,
I have optimised it & exported it from Imageready as html & then export into Dreamweaver.
I have left the middle section of my page empty so I can make my page a template & assign the space in the middle of the page an editable region.
Now... When I drag any images into the editable region, no matter what size or shape my page goes mad & all the tables spread out & my page falls apart.
Where am I going wrong? :?

Any help & advice gratefully received.
:)

normally when you use the export as html feature of imageready or fireworkks it builds your page with a table using rowspans and colspans. It also uses an extra row for spacing with spacer images. You might be able to to adjust these placeholders.

My advice would be to write your html from scratch and just use the image slices from imageready. The html form there is bloated and messy anyway. If you ae unable to write the html from scratch, try exporting the file as layers and css, at least it will be a little cleaner than the table layout.
