ok so i am making a website for a realestate company (my fathers). and i made a template in fireworks then had it imported to DW. i have all the pages extentions and such off this main tablet for ease in updating or changing the website. i sliced and picked all my regions i wanted editable but i cannot figure out a way to insert a picture to the box where i want it.... i sliced it as a jpeg/giff in fireworks then imported it in DM as a layout then tried adding one and it distorted everything and wont go into the slice or box i want it to fit into. Any help? thanks im a noob when it comes to this stuff

I want to be able to use the same template in DW for every page and just add pics and text of the different houses, what is the easiest way to go about this? i have CS4 FYI-

Unfortunately, the easiest way isn't the one that works.

You need to build a CSS based layout from scratch not by exporting from some other program.

If you try to use the table based layout you exported from Fireworks all the images will have to be exactly the same size to avoid problems. And adding text is likely to distort your layout.

the fireworks export to dw is for prototyping only - as DW says it needs to be built again properly in DW from scratch
