    Dreamweaver image distortion

    Hi, I use dreamweaver to manage my website. I find when I reduce the size of my original image (created in photoshop) to fit within the table (in dreamweaver), the image becomes distorted.

    I have tried to play around with different w & h in the code but it makes no difference. The original photos are quite large and very clear. I need a small thumbnail size and a larger image (when the user click on the small image they view the larger image). Both images are not as clear as the original jpg photo.

    I am not sure if I should save the original image as a smaller size (not sure how to do this) or, can I control the issue within dreamweaver?

    Hope you can help as I am getting desperate, thanks

    A large image scaled down into a smaller one without actual editing taking place usually means it will become distroted - i would advise you to use two images. One for the thumbnail and keep the larger one for... the original photo

    Use something like http://www.irfanview.com/ (free tool) to resize the image to whatever size you may need
