Flash/Dreamweaver Genius guide - HTML Layouts
It seems that a number of readers have expressed their concern at the lack of images accompanying the HTML Layouts tutorial on pages 14-16.

There are a number of reasons that images are not distributed with tutorial files. First, the images  in the tutorials are licensed stock photography that cannot be redistributed. If a user wishes to use the imagery or similar they will need to purchase it from the vendor.  iStock (www. istockphoto.com) is a very popular image resource with millions of images to choose from.
Second, the images are used to demonstrate what can be acheived using one of the HTML Layouts. It is a guide to demonstrate the techniques needed to create the finished article.
Finally, if we did provide the images everyone who worked through the tutorial would end up with exactly the same website. Web design is about imagination and creation, so we hope that  the tutorial will help readers create their very own masterpiece.

      That is a lame excuse. I am paying you for the tuturial. That includes the graphics. Very few of us have the graphics to build the sites you are teaching. Seeing how the parts go together is a must for anyone learning design. Saying you have to have x background for this image and then not supplying the image is miserable customer service. I dont care about your rights. You should be smart enough be using stock that you can publish. If your going to teach, teach. Otherwise get out of the business. I dont have time to waste finding alternative graphics.
