I want to position a photo behind a swf on the banner heading in SC3. I have made the banner with the photo behinbd using KOOLMOVES and saved it as a SWF file . When importing it to SC3 it only shows the animation and not the background photo.

I ahve also tried inserting the photo first then the SWF just with the animation and it gets positioned underweath.

My companies website is currently like this

www.crmanagement.co.uk (http://www.crmanagement.co.uk) with the same SWF but I want a fade image behind the SWF

I don't have Photoshop but have Ulead PhotoImpact 10 SE Idet which is quite good for photo editing.

Can this be done in SC3 or not ? I am new to Dreamweaver having built the two company websites in NOF8 so am keen to learn more.

You can set the image as a background in your CSS styles;

#header {
background-image: url(yourbanner.jpg);
}

and then insert the swf into the HTML itself. That should work if I understand your question correctly.
