How do you insert an image with a remote location...

Say I uploaded and image to www.imageshack.us... How would I insert that in dreamweaver using the "insert > image" command?


I know how to go in the text editor and write <IMG src="http://imageshack.us/apple.jpg" />


But that is kind of slow, plus it does not enter all the default info like "alt="


If someone could clue me in I would really appreciate that!

If you're using the code view, I just type the tag in including the location of the image. You can then use the properties inspector to set alt, border and other things.

Do you know how to do it in WYSIWYG view?


For quick ebay/craigslist listings that is the view I use...

You can just use Insert > Image or click on 'Insert Image' button then type/paste the URL from imageshack.

Oops.. Sorry, I didn't actually try it. But I also don't believe it is that hard to do such simple task in dreamweaver.

Now I understand why you called it 'stupid question' :)

You should have asked it in the "Web Design and Development" section. :)
Fixed... ;)

As to the OP: I'm not sure it's an easy way of doung what you want... hotlinking images isn't really good form and I guess Adobe want you to use your local images first and foremost...

That said, you could insert a dummy image with alt-tag and replace the src-path to 'http://whatever/yourimage' (and change or remove the width and height, of course).

Thanks for the move...

Ya, I know hotlinking is kind of unorthodox. I only do this for making "quicky" sites though...

I use local images when creating "real" websites..


Maybe I should contact adobe about this?
