Dreamweaver - Scaling & Resizing Images

amacfarl asked
Last Modified: 2008-08-12
I am using Dreamweaver CS3 and I am getting very frustrated.  Is there any way of changing an image size without doing it directly in HTML - keeping the ASPECT ratio.  If I try to change the size of the picture - it does not keep the dimension.  This is only done through working the size out and changing directly in HTML.

It seems something basic... but errrrrr!!!

but note down, that resizing the image directly in HTML will distort the image
your best option to use an image editor to resize the image in desired size and then use it in dreamweaver to avoid distortion.
