This course covers the enhancements that will most affect web designers using the latest version of Adobe Dreamweaver. Author and veteran Dreamweaver user James Williamson showcases the improved FTP capabilities; the Fluid Grids feature, which gives designers a visual way to control page layout for multiple screen sizes while automatically integrating cross-browser consistency through the use of HTML5; and the CSS Transitions panel, which makes it easy to add impressive CSS-driven transitions to any element on the page through a single dialog. James also demonstrates the increased support for jQuery Mobile, CSS, and web fonts in Dreamweaver. This course is ideal for web designers who want to evaluate the software for purchase or simply brush up on all the new features.

CS6 marks the latest release of Adobe's industry standard web development tool, and introduces a number of important features that are designed to help you become a more productive web designer.
