Have you ever tried to print from your web browser? Why does the printed version look nothing like what’s in your browser?

Common issues when printing from the web include shifted elements, missing images, content not fitting the page, etc.

What’s New in Dreamweaver CC 2015

new features in dreamweaver cc 2015

Dreamweaver has always been a veritable Swiss Army knife for web pros—a huge application that covers just about every aspect of web development.

However, that breadth and power makes it hard to learn, and hard to stay up to date with all the Dreamweaver features and changes from release to release.

Fortunately, there’s a lot to be excited about in this year’s update to Adobe’s flagship app for web designers and developers, with a noted focus on making Dreamweaver more friendly for beginners and pros alike.

Let’s take a look at what’s new in 2015.

Nope — Web Design Isn't Dead

web design lives

“I would dance on the grave of the type of conceited web design that builds graphic-rich, information-poor art sites. I want to nurture the type of interaction design that puts users and their need for information first.” —Sergio Nouvel, UX Magazine

An article that recently circulated on Mashable made the case for web design having no future because well-designed mass-market templates and templating tools already exist, and because content is now distributed on other platforms such as Facebook or Mobile apps and push services.

However, as a user researcher and interaction design specialist, I don’t see bands of feral unemployed web designers camping out at night in the park huddled under pages torn from their Adobe Illustrator how-to books, shivering in their faux lumberjack shirts, scraping together pennies to buy a bottle of artisanal craft beer.

And there’s certainly no downturn in demand for Web Design courses on lynda.com.

Start a Blog, Kids! Here's how ... and Why

200474332-001

Every time you leave a comment on a YouTube video, post a picture to Instagram, send a message through Snapchat, connect with friends over Facebook, or do any of the other things you do with your smartphone or tablet or computer, you’re creating content and sharing it with the world through the web.

Why not take this one step further and create your own website to share your talent, your ideas, your creations—and let them travel to the far reaches of our planet like messages in a bottle?

With a blog, you can do that, and so much more. Here’s how!

HTML truly powers the Internet.

It’s the fundamental technology behind everything you see in a web browser, and it’s used (alongside other tech like JavaScript and CSS) to build everything from simple web pages to complex web applications and services.

But there are lots of good reasons to learn HTML beyond just pursuing a career designing websites.

Here are five reasons everyone should know a bit of HTML.

Version Control: It's Not Just for Programmers Anymore!

2015_06_06_Git

I believe that to create good work, you need to be fearless. Fear of mistakes, or of breaking something and not being able to recover, can be very harmful to any kind of work.

Working with computers, it’s essential to keep backups so work doesn’t get lost—but backups are automatic and have no built-in knowledge of what the work actually is. Using version control, you can keep records of what exactly you’ve done at every step (without anyone else telling you what that “step” should be), and go back to previous versions if a direction doesn’t work out.

Version control software has been helping programmers do this kind of safe experimentation for years, and I believe it can be really helpful for creatives. I like to think of it as having the freedom to make bolder, braver mistakes.
