Hi there.
I'm new to the site, so I hope this is the right place to post this.

I recently acquired dreamweaver cs5. I've worked with dreamweaver before, but I'm not entirely sure how to work with backgrounds.

I'm working on this website for my dad:

http://robglass.com/

I'd like to make it so the navigation bar at the top is thinner, and the logo is smaller. Right now it looks really oversized, particularly as I'm changing things around.

But when I change these things in photoshop, it changes how the background fits onto dreamweaver. Everything still looks oversized, but in my new background the navigation bar doesn't reach the right side of the screen.

Could someone please help me?
[Please remember that I'm still a beginner with this stuff]

Thank you :)

-Jax

You really need to start by learning something about HTML and CSS particularly using divs for layout. Dreamweaver has some well designed built in layouts that you can start with.
