    In the past I have watched a buddy design a site basically in Photoshop. Then he sends it off to someone who kind of slices and dices it and turns it into code. How exactly does that work? I've tried to use the slice and dice tool before in Photoshop, but I can't do anything with it.

    The slicing tool in Photoshop is an assistant to a process. It can generate HTML but you should never, ever use it for that.

    The slicing tool essentially lets you crop, flatten, preview in various formats, and save an image in one step. When you name the slices, and if they don't overlap, you can define every image you need for a site in most cases and save them all at once to individual, appropriately-named files. It should then be up to you to incorporate the images into CSS and, less likely, the HTML itself.

    Yeah, they usually slice and dice it and turn it into terrible code. Maybe things are changing nowadays, but I know in the past it would create tables and spacer gifs galore! Just my opinion but to me, Photoshop is a graphics tool, and Notepad is an html editor. If you use them that way, you can't go wrong.
