Smile Editing an Image from a Dreamweaver Template

Hi,
I have used a template for a website in Dreamweaver CS3, I can't seem to edit the image to change the background colour or edit it at all, can someone advise me how I can edit a image from a downloaded template in Fireworks please ?

Thanks,
Nick Carter

can you post a copy of the image somewhere or a link to the site?
do you have a native fireworks png included in the template?

Are you trying to edit a single image from the template?

Is the template a Dreamweaver template (.dwt) or just an image?

Hi,
I have attached the image I would like to edit, the image has extra bits to the side and bottom that form part of the webpage, all I want to do is insert my own image in place of the image shown whilst keeping the rest intact as it forms part of the webpage, here is a link to the site I downloaded the template from, its the one called beauty salon:

Thanks for Help,
Nick C

It looks like that image is pic_1.jpg. All you need to do is replace it in the images folder with an image with the same name and exactly the same dimensions (252 x 292 pixels).

Hi,
Thanks for reply, I thought that just replacing the image might work but if you take a look at the the side to the left of the image it looks like there is extra work been added to the jpg i.e. rounded corners etc, if i just replace the image with one of my own will this also delete the extra rounded corners that make up part of the webpage etc that are extra to the image ?

Thanks for help,
Nick C

Yes, so what is the problem that you can't edit the image. The one you posted opens right up in Photoshop.

That's where the problem is then because I don't have Photoshop in my CS3 suite !, any suggestions apart from obviously buying Photoshop !

Cheers,

Do you have Fireworks or another image editor? Just open the file directly in there and edit.

OK, I have Fireworks open and have copied image to desktop, opened it in Fireworks but can only select the whole thing, all I want to do is cut the photo img and replace with my own, I cant just delete the image, I'm not good with Fireworks so maybe you could advise what I'm doing wrong ?
