when i export the text after creating the effect i was looking for and insert it into dreamweaver it has a box around the text and covers up part of t he background how do i import the text image and not cover up any of the back ground.
You should really ask in the Dreamweaver forum.
I don't know Dreamweaver, but in general what you describe is solved either by
having a box with a transparent background or by creating a layer containing
only the text.
