Not sure if I understand the problem; is it that your image editing software won't open the image, or that you're not sure how to send the image to your editor?

You should find you image in the 'Files' paned in Dreamweaver: siteassistpro_images > contentWrapper_bg.jpg (or whatever name it has).

If you have associated an image editor with images or image types in your DreamWeaver Preferences (Edit > Precerences > File Types / Editors) then you should be able to right-click the image in the 'Files' menu and select 'Open with' (To see listed image editors or browse for one) or 'Open with Photoshop' if that was installed with Dreamweaver.

In your image editor you can then adjust the image and, depending what you want to do, i.e. add text, overlay with your own image etc.

The images that SiteAssist Pro provides when it creates your pages do not have editable text. You would have to add text to it using your image editor.

If you meant something else, please could you post back with more details?

Cheers for the info Satellite,

I see what you mean now. The images that Site Assist puts in to the pages are technically 'placeholders' to let you know what the page layout and style will look like if you choose that template. I suppose the thought being that you the designer would probably want to replace the image with one of your own. You would use the provided image just so you could see the dimentions of it and have an idea of what you need to produce.

WebAssist have not provided a file eith a text layer on it - so you would need to import the image into your image editor(Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint, etc) and either modify the background, or change it alltogether by adding a new picture and text.

Personally, I think SiteAssist should provide users with an image with no text on it and an easy way to add your own text.

If it is difficult for you to do yourself, if you want, I could modify the image for you and post it back here. You would need to tell me what text you want on it, if you want it in the same place and any other instructions.

Actually they do:

The source files with Sculptor presets and complete files used to create each layout including the original graphics files with layers, are available in your Download area.
1. Logon to your account.
2. Select SiteAssist Professional.
3. Open the Source files with Sculptor presets section
Each CSS Design .zip file contains the following:

1) output_html - HTML files for each color scheme. Useful for easy implementation into your site.

2) PSD_source - Photoshop (.PSD) source files for each color scheme. Allows for complete customization of the design using Adobe Photoshop software.

3) PNG file - Fireworks (.PNG) source file containing a frame for each color scheme. Allows for complete customization of the design using Adobe Fireworks software.

4) *XML files - XML files used by Eric Meyer's CSS Sculptor for importing each CSS design. (Please note: when importing a layout into CSS Sculptor, point to the zip file and not the XML file.)

*Each XML file references content located within the folder with the same name as the chosen design.
Removing text from original files:

  1. Open the .psd file associated with the color scheme in use.
  2. Access the appropriate layer, delete the unneeded text, then add your own.
  3. Merge all layers, and crop as needed, referring to the header and then save it under an appropriate filename as a .jpg
  4. In Dreamweaver, click on the image you want to replace.
  5. Open the CSS tab, and click on background-image.
  6. Use the point tool or folder selection tool to change to your new image.
