Amazing interior design and architecture resource

Have you ever wondered where interior designers go for inspiration and ideas? More than 70,000 of them rely on the Trade Only Design Library (TODL), a site that connects them with sellers of goods for residential and commercial interior design projects. For manufacturers, TODL is also a great resource, generating 4,000 targeted leads monthly.

To keep both buyers and sellers engaged and make the site easier to navigate, TODL recently redesigned the site using Adobe Dreamweaver CC. Executive Creative Director Scotty Smith appreciated how Live View and Code View in Dreamweaver CC saved him time and helped him improve the site’s code. The responsive website is now easily accessible by designers in the office on a desktop computer or at a job site using a tablet or a smartphone.

TODL benefitted from working with tools in Adobe Creative Cloud and looks forward to taking advantage of even more time-saving features and services. “Adobe Creative Cloud has already saved us time by enabling us to easily share files, send links to files that can be viewed using standard web browsers, and integrate a wealth of creative new features into our designs,” says Smith.

Responsive Web Design With Heart

MIGHTYminnow’s pro-bono client Rocket Dog Rescue is in a better position than ever to connect pet lovers with animals needing homes. After first designing the non-profit’s website in 2006, MIGHTYminnow founder Kristin Long and her associate Mickey Kay used Adobe Creative Cloud, including Adobe Dreamweaver CC to turn the organization’s existing WordPress site into a dynamic, fully responsive website.   Many features in Dreamweaver CC, including Code View and Live View, the visual editing capabilities of CSS Designer, and the Viewport selector to work collaboratively, save time, and make the overall process of responsive development more efficient and adaptable. To test how the new site performed on different devices, Long used Adobe Edge Inspect CC to navigate the site design in Chrome on her desktop and see the work appear on a range of connected phones and tablets in the studio’s device lab as the devices follow along loading every page she loads in Chrome. Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 9.01.01 AM The Rocket Dog Rescue website now successfully supports the organization’s goals of providing comprehensive information for people looking to adopt a pet or just looking to get more information on the organization from any device. For MIGHTYminnow, the site is an example of the efficacy of working with the tools in Creative Cloud to cost-effectively tackle responsive web design. “With responsive design adding complexities and potential costs to the development process, tools in Adobe Creative Cloud support us in utilizing new technologies in an affordable way and empower us to implement new ideas with great efficiency,” says Long.

Dreamweaver In Action: Ten Fathoms Redesigns Yorkshire Crab Website Using Dreamweaver CC

We love discovering our customer’s use of Dreamweaver to create innovative sites and mobile apps in our Dreamweaver In Action series.

One of our favorite things to do is highlight the great work Adobe customers produce with our tools. Today, we get to show off a website redesign completed by Ten Fathoms for Yorkshire Crab, a sustainable seafood company. The client wanted a site that would appeal to higher end clients, reinforce the company’s sustainability messaging, and use high-end imagery to show off products. Paul Middleditch, founder of Ten Fathoms, used Dreamweaver CC to construct the main framework for the content-managed site and even created an image banner for the site using Adobe Edge Animate CC.

Like many web professionals, Paul describes himself as being midway between graphic designer and web developer. For that reason, he loves Live View and Code View because he can keep an eye on how a site looks, even as he’s coding. He was also able to eliminate the tedious toggling back and forth to a browser to test changes by entering values in CSS Designer and seeing the immediate effects within Dreamweaver CC.
In addition to working with his favorite web design and development tool, Creative Cloud also lets Paul experiment with other tools, including Adobe Muse CC, Edge Reflow CC, Lightroom, and even Adobe Premiere Pro CC! He says, “Having access to all of the Adobe creative tools through Adobe Creative Cloud opens up more avenues to create.”

Visualize Relationships Between HTML Elements in Live View & Applied CSS Selectors

A few months ago, we announced a new Dreamweaver CC update with several exciting new features.

One of these, the Live Highlight feature, lets you visualize the relationships between HTML elements in Live View and applied CSS selectors.

Let’s review how Live Highlight works. In the screenshot below, a user intends to make changes to the ‘Cart’ navigation link. To make changes to HTML elements, the user usually starts by selecting the CSS selector “.SiteNavLink a” and editing the associated properties. These changes could however inadvertently change other HTML elements that the user might have no intention of changing at all.

Using Live Highlight, users can now simply click the CSS selector in the CSS Designer panel to see the affected page elements. These elements are highlighted in blue in Live View mode. Users decide if they want to create a separate Selector that applies to ‘Cart‘ alone, thus leaving the styles for other links undisturbed.

Enjoy the video below that shows how to use the new Live Highlight feature. Also, check out this article for more info http://ref.sx/LiveHighlightDreamweaver

 

Download and get your hands on the modernized Dreamweaver CC with exciting features that make mobile and web content creation a more streamlined and productive experience.
