I have a long-standing fascination with the Web, mostly centering around Dreamweaver, the world's leading Web authoring tool, now developed by Adobe. I've written a good number of books and articles about Dreamweaver and related technologies; my most recent is the Dreamweaver CS3 Bible, published by Wiley.

A good part of my interest in Dreamweaver stems from its underlying extensibility layer. I've created a number of extensions myself and am currently Vice-President of Marketing for WebAssist, the leader provider of extensions for Adobe Dreamweaver. Views expressed here are my own and not those of the company.

DW + PS sittin' in a tree...

One of the most notable—and most desperately desired—features of Dreamweaver CS3 is the ability to work smoothly with Photoshop. While not as robust as the round-trip Dreamweaver/Fireworks workflow, the DW/PS connection is pretty darn cool. I've written a brief article about how to use Dreamweaver and Photoshop together with WebAssist's SiteAssist. The techniques described can be easily applied to any graphics back-and-forth, but I just thought the SiteAssist tie-in was so sweet, I couldn't resist.
