Hi Everone,

I am new to web design and DW. I could use some help. I am trying to make my links table with web buttons (images) that I downloaded offline. The only way that I have figured to add text to these is by adding layers. Well, the layers don't stay where they are suppose to. Please, tell me there is an easier way to do this?

Thanks for any advice,
Tammy

Thanks davidj. I have been thinking about buying Fireworks. Will Fireworks do this?

Thanks to everyone for your advice. I found a IrfanView. It's not the best but it will do until I can afford Fireworks.:-)
