    I have a design - Now to slice...

    Ok,

    I have been designing websites now for four years. I have done all of my layouts with one slice and coded raw html with plain tables and such. Is it worth it to buy dreamweaver and easily assemble my slices into tables or is it easier to just code the raw html. I have tried to code the html but get no where, as I get quite confused :P.

    Any helpers, pointers, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I think you should forget about DW, stop slicing and dicing and learn some HTML and CSS instead (that is, no tables for layout).

    Dreamweaver is quite expensive. I recommend you grab yourself a nice little text editor such as BBEdit.

    If you are confused I think that should tell you something - practive until you get it right. Dreamweaver may seem like the easy way out, but unless you're hand-coding you'll never know what's happening.

    Ill agree with z but for different reasons (somewhat)

    The Money just isnt worth it when you can literally do it yourself. You can do your layouts in Photoshop and then slice them up in ImageReady BUT (MAJOR BUT HERE) the code Image Ready produces is shear CRAP!

    I still use it to slice up my layouts but I then handcode the page using those slices ....... sounds horrible at first but once you get used to it its a snap.

    What sort of help do you need?
    Do you have any type of html editor or graphics program?

    You arent going to be able to see anything from an example site because it's now html code. Look at any of the sites in my portfolio, they were ALL sliced but looking at the code wont give instructions on how to do it....

    I REALLY am not sure what you are looking for here!

    I agree and I would go on to say that WYSIWYG editors like Dreamweaver and Frontpage create junk code too.

    fuhsheeez, if you can't figure out how to do it, either keep practicing till you figure it out or hire someone to help you.
