Ok in FLAT in RLM my images are stored in a "img" folder as I like :)

In RSD they are in the root, is this correct? if so how do I set it to make a img folder for my images please?
Cheers

Go into resources and add a new folder called img. Have your images in the folder when you add to your project.

Hope this helps you out.:)

One of 2 ways Brett,

In RSD if you select an image and/or place holder then click on 'Design' tab and open the resource folder ... you'll see a directory on the left and the images on the right. I created my own folders for images. I have not uploaded yet so I'm not sure how it will look on the net.

The second way would be to create your images folder on your server, upload your images, then in RSD instead of selecting 'Local Image' you would select 'Online Image' and link to it.

Both seem to work well for me.

Okay, just did a simple publish and the folder I created for my images in RSD was created on the server. So I would think that that is the best way to go. Simply create an image folder in your Resources in RSD and place your local images in that. When you publish they will be uploaded to the server. Easy - peasy! :cool:

RSD doesn't look at those files and use them if they have changed like VSD does. It saves them to another location deep in the bowels of your pc when you select them in the resource tools.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

Ok guys thanks for the feedback :)
But I want it to create an "img" folder at start up as a default.
Will pop this into suggestions.

Brett, you CAN create an img folder at startup! Just open your resources in RSD and create the folder. Put all your images into it. Use those images in your project. They will upload to /img when you publish your site. Works like a champ.
