The new Creative Cloud (CC) is the most sophisticated and powerful toolset Adobe has ever released and recently readers have been asking for solid training materials to learn how to best use these applications…
A while back, we spread the word on over 30 hours of free video tutorials for CS6, and last year we published details on a fantastic new ebook for getting started learning the Adobe CC/CS6 Design Suite (202 pages). But if you’re looking for a solid primer or helpful beginner’s lessons for Adobe Dreamweaver, that’s harder to find.
“These tutorials are designed to get you through the basics of making web sites in Dreamweaver with the most flexibility and the least amount of work. Think of them as supplying you with a toolbox full of tools to start making good websites.
They are deceptively packed with information, and they are designed to also act as future reference after you are finished completing them. Web pages across the Internet have a lot of similarities, and the information here is designed to cover many of these similarities.”
There are two versions of the free book – just pick which works best for you: one for the current Dreamweaver CC release, and the other for 2012’s Dreamweaver CS6. With the older edition, the tutorial examples and illustrations are from CS6, but should still be able to work with CS5.5 and CS5 as the core panels and buttons covered are functionally similar.
You can download either book in PDF format after signing in with your Adobe ID (which is easy to create if you don’t already have one). The full digital book file for the CC edition is less than 10MB in size, so shouldn’t take long for you to grab:
You’ll need Dreamweaver to complete everything as outlined. If you don’t have the software yet, just download a free working trial for any CC 2015 product for Windows or Mac (or try the complete Creative Cloud) – then install and start right away.
If you prefer video training instead (or in addition), then check out the free Adobe Learn Series for Dreamweaver CC.
Plus there are other free step-by-step primers as well.
