Hi haddad,

Which picture?  The left pane of what?  The question is a little hard to follow.

Okay, the menu is an image too.  So place this new image above the menu and that should do what you want.  To place it, go into source code view and look for this line:

<td width="177"><img src="a_data/cmmenu2.gif" usemap="#Map" border="0" height="150" width="150" />

Click between the two tags, so the cursor is blinking between the ><

Now switch back to design view and without clicking on the page, do Insert | Image from the menu.  Select the image from the dialog.  

Done.

Now you have to upload all the pages and the image files to your web server.  Dreamweaver works locally, unless you have the local and remote servers set to be the same machine.

You can link to that website's image remotely in your HTML, what you need is just provide it with a full path, like:

in your local page, add:

<img src="http://www.valwest.com/coyotemoonaz/images/coyotemoonmap.bmp" border="0" height="353" width="463" />

hope this make sense to you..

it should works since it's a fullpath url, i'm afraid your server got some limitation/setting to prevent you from viewing the images...

you need to add and specify a hyperlink, like:

<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.valwest.com/coyotemoonaz/images/coyotemoonmap.bmp" border="0" height="353" width="463" /></a>


if you want to specify the opened window's size, you can try use javascript instead, like:

function openInCenter(theURL, myw, myh) {
      var X = ((screen.width/2)-(myw/2));
      var Y = ((screen.height/2)-(myh/2));      
      var myparams = "innerWidth=" + myw + ",innerHeight=" + myh + ",width=" + myw + ",height=" + myh + ",left=" + X + ",top=" + Y + ",screenX=" + X + ",screenY=" + Y;
      myparams += "alwaysLowered=0,alwaysRaised=1,channelmode=0,dependent=0,directories=0,fullscreen=0,hotkeys=1,location=0,menubar=0,noresize=1,,scrollbars=1,status=0,titlebar=1,toolbar=0,z-lock=1";      
      mypopup = window.open(theURL,"myPopupName",myparams);
}


<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" onClick="openInCenter(this.href, 840, 600);return false;"><img src="http://www.valwest.com/coyotemoonaz/images/coyotemoonmap.bmp" border="0" height="353" width="463" /></a>


hope this helps
