    Web design is done strictly using straight lines, so you can't slice circles or bends. What you'll need to do is slice the layout to give the illusion of curves. Unless you plan to let Photoshop do the layout for you, which is not recommended, you will need to have an idea of how all the slices will fit together to achieve the completed layout. Keep in mind that some elements may overlap others. For example, in the sample slice I've attached, I would create the blue header with CSSed divs and a repeating background for the filler. I would then overlay the doctor and the logo / catch phrase with a couple more divs. This way, I don't need to have one huge header image that takes forever to download on dial-up.

    Note: This example is a very rough slice and wouldn't actually work in real life.

    beachkitty85 is right on. One thing she did not mention... when you are in Photoshop, you may have to turn some layers on + off when you slice. Also, you should plan on using small images for planes and do a repeat in your CSS. All text should be done in HTML. Though, some people like using images for headers, as is illustrated above.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
