ok im a bit rusty on this but i think the code would be like this,

assuming you have the picture stored in a folder named images in the root of your html folder

Code:
<img src="images/animation.gif" align="center" valign"top" alt="animated image">
i think n e ways u see ive been getting lazy like alot of people and using dreamweaver but i did learn the code first which is important.

edit. by moving images do you mean an image that would physically move from 1 side of your page to the other ? if so then that would be more javascript than html

Thanks for the code.

Is dreamweaver really all that? What are some things that codes can't do that dreameaver can and vice versa? Sorry, I have to ask this twice cause I didn't get my answer the first time. One time I had a friend who does websites and he said that if your doing websites without dreamweaver, your sites not going to be all that, or your not good or something like that... What's with that?

What's javascript? I see it all the time but never know what it is. Is that similar to html? Is it harder? Thanks for the replies.

i guess it could be classed as similar to html it is a more interactive languange than just html for instance it can be used for pop up messages controlling right clicks on pages etc i believe there is a tutorial on w3schools ... have a look into it.

ok the reason the majority of people use dreamweaver to design webpages is because it makes everything simpler for instance if you want to place text in a certain location using html code you would have to do something roughly along the lines of,

"""this is extremely rough its been about 2 years since ive manually coded tables lol"""

Code:
<table style="background:#009977">
<tr>
<td style="vertical-align:middle;">Text Here </td>
<td style="vertical-align:middle;">More Text Here<td>
</tr>
</table>
where as in dreamweaver you would simply click on layout mode draw a new table where you would like the text and then draw a layou cell where you wish the text to start and eend.

also it just brings a user friendly interface to web site design, again adding an image that when clicked will take you to goolgle.co.uk in code would have to write

Code:
<a href="http://www.google.co.uk"><img src="images/google.jpg" alt="google" align="center" valign="top"> </a>
but in dreamweaver goto insert button the media object select image then it will ask you to browse to the image in a windows style way which is very easy then it will ask you for alternative text and if you would like it to link to anywhere, then it will add the image to a default place and you can drag it to exactly where you want it on the page

How do you get started in Dreamweaver? A friend let me borrowed his dreamweaver for a few weeks while he's gone. I want to be able to do something with it. Do you know how to work with Flash also? I want to do some animations too. Thanks.

I started by downloading WAMP, and just wading through tutorials and writing my own website. I find the best way to learn programming is just to do it.
