    Web Designer mag Issue #149 - Photoshop CS3 - Design a wordpress theme tutorial?

    Has anyone done the tutorial in Web Designer magazine (imagine publishing) Issue #149 - Photoshop CS3 where you create a theme and then you'd have to complete the 2-part tutorial on page 70 where you construct the theme from the photoshop?

    I followed the steps accordingly and i managed to design the theme in phoshop. Now the tutorial continues at page 70 where we start building the theme.

    I've installed wordpress on a localmachine using WAMP.

    Now we're asked to edit the first piece of CSS of the theme Coffee Desk.

    Where we change,

    Code CSS:
    background-image: url(images/back.PNG);
    font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    to

    Code CSS:
    background-image: url(images/siteback.jpg);
    font-family: Georgia, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    Where is "siteback.jpg"? Was it provided in the CD along with the tutorial files? Do i have to slice the layout i created in Photoshop myself?

    Could anyone help me out with slicing it? Coz the tutorial on creating the theme in Photoshop doesnt show you how to prepare the images so that we can continue the rutorial on Page 70

    Thanking you all in advance,
    Kenneth Jaysone Francis

    Just simply because I haven't created my own themes before. I am however confident with using the blog itself though.
