Like most of our ‘Your Questions Answered’ posts, we’re going back to the basics. We get all kinds of questions from our users on our forums, Twitter and Facebook. One question that has come up a bunch, which we’ll be covering in this post, is around creating a table and centering objects using HTML and CSS.
Users that have previously styled tables using HTML will find this tutorial relatively simple. However, if you are new to HTML and CSS, you can still create this table without too much effort. We are using Dreamweaver CC for this tutorial.
It takes talent, time and innovation to turn someone’s vision into something tangible, to take an idea down from the clouds and translate it into an experience. While practice will certainly make you a better web designer, there are things you can start doing right now that will immediately help you improve your designs.
1. Take out a pen and a pad of paper.
Web designers spend a lot of time building things in applications such as Dreamweaver and Photoshop, but sometimes the best way to hash out an idea is the good old-fashioned way. Don’t be afraid to write notes and organize information on paper beforehand so you have a better idea of how to approach the design later. Drawing or sketching your ideas can help you pull together concepts, layout ideas, and experiment with styles, all while simultaneously allowing you to see your designs through the lens of a different medium. And if you use smart technology like the Creative Cloud connected notebook you can save time by importing your sketches directly into the program using an app.
Creatives create files, and files take up space. Luckily, Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers are covered. With Creative Cloud Files, subscribers have access to 20 GB of file storage that can be used for backups, link sharing, folder collaboration, and more.
In this post, I will show how you can upload your code to Creative Cloud Files and sync to it from anywhere – work or home – with ease.
Locate the ‘Creative Cloud Files’ folder on your computer.
Create a folder inside the ‘Creative Cloud Files’ folder. Let’s call this new folder ‘SampleProject’.
Copy all source code (HTML, CSS, PHP, JS, etc.) to the ‘SampleProject’ folder.
Create a new Site in Dreamweaver with Local Site Folder path set to ‘SampleProject’ folder.
Your project files and subsequent changes will now automatically be synced in your Adobe Creative Cloud Files.
