In photoshop - use the crop tool (shortcut C) to highlight the area you want to save as a button (for example); and then click file -> save as -> copy

And save it as a .jpeg.

Dreamweaver can work with jpegs, not .psd files.

It can be done. It is not especially easy and the results are not very good.

The reason that it is not very easy is because the bulk of the work assigning buttons, links, and roll-overs is done in Photoshop and not in Dreamweaver, and Photoshop wasn't really designed to do this very well.

The reason that it is not very good is because instead of having a web page made up of text and backgrounds and images, the entire Photoshop image is sliced up and reassembled like a jigsaw puzzle in an HTML file that can be opened in Dreamweaver, but can not be edited without a great deal of difficulty.

Also the code that Photoshop writes is very inefficient, bloated, and full of bad practices.

However, it can be done.

Here is a step by step guide to getting an image from Photoshop to Dreamweaver:

Hi mgtm3,

Thanks for the points. If you would like, you could a new question with a jpeg of your Photoshop image here in the Dreamweaver section and the Experts here could give you some pointers as to which elements from your Photoshop file you can use in your Dreamweaver page and which elements you are better off letting Dreamweaver do.

It's possible that you already have the bulk of the work done and just need some guidance.
