Placing Images on Background?????

    I need some help. I placed an image from photoshop as a background in Dreamweaver 9. I need some help placing images and text on top of that. That image for the background will be the same for the entire site yet each page will have different content on it. Everytime I place an image on top the background, it goes all over the place. How can I place exactly where I want it to show up????

    With CSS if you position something with position:absolute; and then use the top and left or right properties you can place it wherever. If that isn't clear enough it may help to see what you're working with so we can offer a specific solution to your needs.

    I'd probably combine what I said before about absolutely positioning the images, and then also using the CSS property z-index. Set the images in increasing indexes (which will stack them from bottom to top), then have the textual content one higher in index so it's sure to sit on top.
