    How do people make those great graphics that gently round or slope around in a background like here: http://myps.sitesell.com/

    Is it a rounded corner table and if so, where is a good tutorial on how to do that. I know, this is old news, right?

    They are simply using a group of images with table cells. The page has its margins set to zero to get the image in the corner.

    Stephanie,

    That kind of stuff is really easy. I'll do a layout for you if you like. Email me at info@candmwebdesign.com to work it out. I hope you remember me. I helped you out before. I'm sorry I never took you up on your offer, yet. I'm just about ready to.

    Do you have to make the images for the table cells in something like Photshop or PhotoImpact?

    First of all you can't make those Rounded table corners just with PhotoShop I think...

    Well give me the colors, the diameter and I will make them for you...

    I would really prefer to learn how to do it for myself. Does anyone know how to explain it or know of a tutorial, please?

    Stephanie,
    You would need to use a decent image creation software package like Macromedia Fireworks, Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. I use Fireworks and it is very easy to create rounded corners. There are several ways of doing it. If you have Fireworks I recommend that you check out http://www.projectfireworks.com which has some very good tutorials.

    You don't need anything expensive to make rounded corners. I used MS Paint (free with Windows) to set up a table with rounded corners and borders.

    It's really easy.

    Stephanie,

    Judging from you response here in the forums, and lack of response to my last email, I decided to just break down and show you hwo to do it. Then I read the article referred to at tucows.com and saw that it was pretty much all covered there.

    Do you still have any questions, such as how to physically create the images in Photoshop?

    I want to thank everyone who responded to my request here and also to those of you who offered to make the table for me, but as you can see, I really wnated to learn how to do it for myself and that Tucows site should get me there. THANKS!!

    Actually you can make the rounded corner things with just Photoshop. It is just a little bit harder compared to using MS PAINT or something.

    For a Photoshop tutorial, there is one at http://www.designsbymark.com
