    Graphics giving me serious problems. Newbie to graphics and web design

    I bought a really nice graphic navigation bar with other web elements. It's like 96 graphic elements on one page with different layers for each element. Other than the one navigation bar that I need.

    I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to take that navigation bar from that page and keep all the layers, save it as a jpeg. Then from there, figure out how to input this item on website in adobe dreamweaver. I know this is seriously newbie stuff but any help would be appreciated. I tried to contact the individual I bought the item from they're taking their sweet time getting back to me so I'm trying to figure it out myself. I'm at a loss. I'm new to adobe Photoshop as well. I figured out how to edit my image but how to do I take one image away from the others and keep the layers plus save the item.

    If you want to save the layers of the nav bar as a PSD, just duplicate the image, name it something different from the original, like navbar.psd

    Close the original file, without any changes.

    Then open the duplicated image (navbar.psd or whatever you named it), delete all the layers that have nothing to do with the navbar, crop the image to eliminate all the new blank area, and save. This will give you just the navbar and its layers.

    If you want to save it as a jpg, use the "save for web and devices" option; but remember, you can't save layers in a jpg.

    You can repeat these steps (duplicate original image, name it something different, delete unwanted layers, crop, save with a new name) for any of the elements in the original PSD (e.g. buttons, login boxes, etc).

    Just remember to always work with a duplicate image, so you always have the original intact.
