Hello,

I have been using dreamweaver for a long time, still an amature. I want to know how designers use text and pictures together. For example if you visited this site, http://www.mediavillage.com/ on the right side there is a water cooler section and the text is over the image. Is the image placed in the backgroud?

Thanks,

Michael

Welcome to the forums koto!

Yes, that's a background image:

If you come across websites like this, and you wonder how they did it, view source and see if you can dissect the website. Sometimes it's still hard to find out, but it gives you some good training at least.

<div style="width:160px; background-image: url('http://mediavillage.com/images/wc_header.gif');">
