    Here is my problem.

    I am trying SO hard to get my site design done for my home based business.

    I did a psd layout in photoshop so I have all the layers separate and everything - but I have NO clue on how to actually create this as an html layout.

    I know this is probably simple for alot of you - but I swear that this side of my brain just does not work well! I find this all confusing.

    Right now I have the sidebar saved as an image and the header saved as an image, and I am assuming a table or whatever will go where I want the text to be.

    I am attaching an image to show you what I have in photoshop.

    ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time!!

    one more thing - if you can recommend changes and if the site just does not look good in your eyes - please say so.

    The basis of what the site is for is directed mainly for people to order photo announcements stuff like that so I think its ok if it does look "girly"

    Thanks again!

    Alrighty..do you mean save for web? Because wouldn't that just save the file as a jpg?

    I'm wanting to have the one image as a header, and then a sidebar image.

    I'm sorry I'f I come across sounding really dumb - I'm so clueless!

    The option to save the image as a background is for after Photoshop. Save it for web as described above, and then you need to move into an HTML-editor. Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive and Microsoft Frontpage are popular editors (although Frontpage is not generally regarded as a good editor).

    At some point if you want to get a good website up and running you will need to learn and understand some of the coding aspects (or atleast know someone else who can help out.)

    There won't always be a check box or drop down option for everything you will want to do. Dig up the code and edit areas that need to be changed; in your case you would want to take the following loose example.

    Code:
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td><img src="images/background_slice_01.jpg" alt="" /></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    And convert it to the following.

    Code:
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td background="images/background_slice_01.jpg">
    Sample text can go here.
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    With the image slice set as a background you're free to add html formatted text over the top.
