Using the Assets panel
Assets include a variety of elements that you store in a site, such as an image or movie file. The Assets panel provides two ways to view assets:
The Site list shows all of the assets in your site.
The Favorites list shows only the assets youve explicitly chosen.
For information about changing views, see Viewing assets in the Assets panel.
In both lists, assets are divided into the following categories, which appear on the left side of the Assets panel:
Images are image files in GIF, JPEG, or PNG formats. (See Inserting Images.)
Colors are the colors that are used in documents and style sheets in your site, including text colors, background colors, and link colors.
mailto), and local file (
Flash files are files in any version of Macromedia Flash format. The Assets panel displays only SWF files (compressed Flash files), but not FLA (Flash source) files. (See Inserting and modifying a Flash button object.)
Shockwave movies are files in any version of Macromedia Shockwave format. (See Inserting Shockwave movies.)
Movies are files in QuickTime or MPEG format. (See Adding Audio, Video, and Interactive Elements.)
Templates provide an easy way to reuse the same page layout on multiple pages and to modify the layout on all pages attached to a template when a template is modified. (See About Dreamweaver templates.)
Library items are elements that you use in multiple pages; when you modify a library item, all pages that contain that item are updated. (See Working with library items.)
Only files that fit into these categories show in the Assets panel. There are other types of files that are sometimes called assets, but they arent shown in the panel.
