I am familar with designing web pages in FP. I am also familar with editing gif's and jpeg's in PhotoS. So in order to make "web pages" in photoS. I have to "specify" each "cell" or section in pixels? In other words there is no "EASY" way around it from what I have read.

I've read 2 books on PS. Is there any templates I can go by? Is there anything I need to be aware of if designing in PS then transfering to FP and then uploading?

Thanks

Design your whole page in Photoshop. Use guides to slice up the page into the chunks. With "snap to guides" on your rectangular marquee will snap to the guides (duh) and allow you to make perfect selections of those squares. Copy, and paste each square into a new PS document and save it. From there just assemble it in FP. My suggestion would be to upgrade to PS 5.5 where you get ImageReady which automates the slicing, linking, optimizing, and html writing.

I'd go with the PS5.5 suggestion... It's superb for splicing internet graphics and the optimisation routines are fantastic.

If youre using 5.5 you also have ImageReady on the CD as well as in the default installation.

Use Photoshop to create your graphics. Save the file and switch to ImageReady. Here you can make and preview rollovers, GIF animations, hyperlinks, etc. When you're done, use the "Save As" in the "File" menu. Here you will have the options for HTML output. I found it best to create the hyperlinks connecting the pages when you're in Front Page, then "Save web as.." option. BADDA-BING!

You dont even have to save and switch to IR...Theres a "switch to ImageReady" button on the bottom of your Photoshop 5.5 tools pallet to do it automatically. Course you could create your image from scratch in IR anyway since its basically the same tool.

When you hit the "switch to Image Ready"  button it will prompt you to save. Either way, you gotta save. The biggest difference between the two programs, I think, is the treatment of text, but you're right. Many times you can create the whole thing in IR. The strength of IL is the ease in which you can create roll-overs and animations.

Well, not to be a jerk, but no one has really shed any new light on the subject. Just about everything said so far is covered in the user guide suppllement that comes with PS 5.5

Thanks to all whom responded.
