I need some guidance regarding changing the text in a webpage banner developed by a contractor

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
Greeting experts,

I have had contractors put together 7 webpages in a subdomain for me, the primary index of which is: http://sample-poses.best-family-photography-tips.com/

I am attaching a screenshot of the directory structure the contractors used  in setting everything up, in addition to screenshots of the various components that are all contributing to the question I have.

Since the contractors are no longer available, I am in a bit of a dilemma since I am not terribly HTML literate but I want to be able to do simple things such as changing the text in the headers. Even though the contractors originally constructed each header as a series of images, I do have a PSD of the complete header (although it was not used as a file to create the actual webpages).

My question basically comes down to this:

When I want to change the content of the text, and keep everything else the same in the header, how can I determine where on the banner, that text will display (position-wise) other than a very long trial and error basis?

Would I be better off to replace the component pieces of the header with a JPEG equivalent of the Photoshop document, so that I know how everything is positioned exactly? If that's the case, what do I need to do in the file structure, other than deleting the files I am no longer needing and inserting the new PSD-generated jpeg's?

I don't know anything about how the images are "called" into the webpage so I'm trying to avoid a major rewrite just to do something simple by changing some of the text in the headers.

I hope that made sense. If not, please let me know and I will provide whatever other details are necessary to paint a clear picture. Thank you very much.
