    Hi,

    I'm looking to create more graphic intensive sites, kinda like this site.

    Can anyone tell me how they would go aboue creating a site similar to this?

    How do you design the graphics at the top of the columns and get all the graphics to lign up perfectly.

    Would a site like this be designed in a graphics program and then tranfered to HTML using the likes of Fireworks etc?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    rgds,

    I would design the page in a graphics program, such as Photoshop of Fireworks, then cut it up when you're done. That way you won't have to worry about alignment of images, etc...

    Can you give a brief explanation on how to create the likes of table top images, dotted lines, etc on webpages and then how you go about cutting the whole thing up in Photoshop?

    thanks,

    here's 3 of that million

    www.phong.com
    www.thinkdan.com
    www.wastedyouth.com

    basically you create your design in photoshop, and then marquee out areas like your menu bar, and save it as an image.

    then you just create the webpage with the images

    hope this helps
