Before I dive into the content of this course, there's a few things you should know and some things that I'm going to assume that you know as I get into this content. Now I'm going to assume you know what a JPEG is, what some of the images are that can be posted on the web. Maybe you're familiar with Twitter, that's great! Since this Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 is an Adobe program, it will be great if you're familiar with some of the other Adobe programs. I'm going to the using Photoshop as well, and as I'm mentioning Photoshop, to be honest, this is perfect for any designer that uses Photoshop or any of those Adobe tools because this is all about creative expression, being able to create what you want--in this case a website-- and really showing it to the world.
So I'm going to assume that knowledge, basic understanding of the Internet, graphics, and a limited understanding of Adobe Tools.
