# Background image size - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi, I'm creating an image for a background in photoshop 7 at 800x600 when I open it indreamweaver mx it's cut off and still cut off when I test it in a browser. I didn't want to use a table for the right dimension as I want to be able to write over the top of it and create an image map for the navbar which is designed on the background. Thanks, Dave...

Hi, I did the image at 800x600 in photshop7 and have dwmx set up to the same size. If I bring it in, in a table 1 row 1 column with 0 margins that corrects it but it's an image and I want to use it as a background so I can put an image map, text and the like on it. Thanks

scout:

A background image cannot have hotspots/image maps.

A 600x800 background image will likely add too much weight to your page,
too. Remember, your target page weight is 40-45K - no more. That includes
all images, all rollovers, all externally liked file, and all code.
