call me a late bloomer. Just starting use shadowboxes. I don't seem to have the knack though.

OK I have made my image the exact pixel width and height that they are suppose to be. for example for the image_small_16x9 is 210 px wide and 118 px hieght

Then when I go to apply the class to the image...I only see 5 class types. I don't see image_small_16x9

I only see

I am pretty sure I have the newest ucomm
I even tried just hand entering the image_small_16x9 and that did not work.

When I tried to figure out what one of these class types sizes should be for my image, I got something close....the image looks a little too big and over laps the underlying image on the right and bottom so I don't see the shadow at all.

As long as you have this line in your <head> section you should be able to at very least manually type in the class you want. - (it won't show up while previewing in a browser on the local file - but will work once the page is uploaded to your server.)

Code: Select all
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="/ucomm/templatedependents/templatecss/layouts/main.css" />

Do you have an example page you're working on that someone could take a look at to see if they notice anything?

Sample page

The line that showed is part of the template. So it is in every page.

Go to
The large picture at the bottom is the designated 210 by 315 for the image_small_tall class. As you can see it looks too wide and to tall.

The three images on the top are all the correct size for image_small_16x9 which are 210 by 118. However, In Dreamweaver when I try to apply a class to the image I only see the classes that I listed in the first email. So in these cases I applied the "center_image" class.

Any ideas?

Hey Mark,

I think you just need to enclose the image in a <div> with the image class on it. Like this:

Code: Select all
<div class="image_small_tall">
    <img src="/acs/test/images/tLAKEClassTBarrow+smalltall.jpg" alt="Tadd Barrow making measurements" />

That did it

Well if I would just look closely at the example I would have seen that was the way to do it. Instead of trying to have the class in the img tag. It has to be in a div tag.

So why don't I see all the class types as I am typing in the div tag? I still only see the ones that I listed in the email. But I can apply the others and they seem to work.

Thanks for the help
