i'm finding it difficult to understand which files work best when importing into DW8.
all i'm trying to do is make a small graphic in Illustrator CS2 and use it on my website. which file type is best to save as because i can't get it to work on my own site without losing quailty!
i tried making the same graphic within Flash 8. What file type do i save that to?

Ok if you are going to to use a picture type image save it as a jpg. If its an image of solid colors little gradients use gif. If you need it to be transparent use a png. If you have Photoshop use that. If you've created the graphic in Illustrator go to file > save for web. Don't make graphics in Flash use Illustrator.
