what i have done is done a gradient image (fireworks)but after spending time on it I realise i need the image to be much bigger but i had already saved it a smaller size before exporting it to dreamweaver. How can I increase the width and height of the image please

You can change the width and height attributes in the img element to use html to scale it larger. However, this often results in ugly pixellation and visible artifacts -- and this approach is not available for background images in any case. The best fix is usually to go back to the source file.

ok i have increased the canvus size and thats no problem... the problem is now that i want to put tables on top of the background and perhaps use different matching colours using dreamweaver. But it is proving problematic trying to get the background image with tables on top of the image... what can i do? thanks.
