Image Scaling Using the Properties Panel

  • The Properties panel allows you to modify the size of images for width and height
  • It is not recommended that you change an image size by modifying the width and height values in the Properties panel, you should modify any images within a graphics editor and be sure the image is optimized for the page
  • If you reduce the size of an image using the Properties panel, the image still downloads at its original size, and the browser modifies the sizing when it displays the image within the web page
  • Dreamweaver displays additional icons in the Properties panel if the image is not its original size
  • The checkmark icon marked commit permanently edits the image to the width and height settings displayed
  • The cancel icon prevents the change from occurring on the image
  • You can lock the width and height ratio of an image when modifying the width or height in the Properties panel by clicking the padlock icon
  • Bold type for the width or height tells you that number is not set to the actual size of the image
  • Be careful when working on images to be sure you are not permanently altering images accidentally
