Editing text in an image

Bought a web template that needs to be edited in PS

How do I edit the text in the GIF images?

Can anyone lend a hand? I can send a sample if needed.

Im assuming the psd in the download is just a overview?

Just need detailed instructions.....lol...help...the gf is getting frustrated

Hi, it is impossible to edit text in a GIF image because it is merely pixels put together. If you could get the working file, that is, .PSD format where the text is in a separate layer, you will then be able to edit it. Otherwise, if you are good at font, you will probably know what font is used (e.g. commonly used fronts are arial, times new roman, verdana). Once you identify the font used, you can edit it by using the text tool.

..or you can try to upload it somewhere and let us take a look.

Hi ctmtnbkr

You will need an FTP program like cuteftp from globalscape

Then simply insert the details your host has provided and upload everything to the root folder, ensuring that everything retains its relative possition.

Then simply browse to the web site.

you do not need th upload the psd files.they are only to help you edit the actual gif and jpeg files.

Well the template is edited.....to what i like, but the files in the images folder have not changed.

they still are the same, couldnt figure out how too edit them

all i have is the complete psd edited...no code behind it..

sorry for being a dunce,
Ok, Open PS and the edited template. Then go to

File > Save for the web

Select the mage folder and save. This then comiles the images into the correct format. The PS  template has already been sliced, so the image folder will get all the individual images.

rename the file as the original one and upload it with an ftp software like SmartFTP or FIlezilla
Go buy yourself the Photoshop Bible.  

Stop what you're doing, spend a week reading it, then come back.  It will be much easier.
Say you have your .jpg image uploaded. You'll need to upload a little html.

I do this all of the time with mockups/preparations for sites.

Use the following code for placing the .jpg image online:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<title>Mockup 1</title>
<body style="text-align:center;background-color:#ffffff">
<img src="filename.jpg">

where filename.jpg is your .jpg of your whole page you got through photoshop.

Now if they navigate to your URL, they can see what the website looks like. The example I gave you is for a white background-color.

You navigate to index.html's folder on the internet and it will be what displays.
No objections here. The question was  kind of an exercise in futility anyway.
