i see this html,css,adobe photoshop combination as layers.
1.) u create and slice everything with photoshop
2.) put the pictures all together:
- and put them as background picture
3.) and just place your text on it with css (wherever u want it)
see what i'm trying to explain is real simple.. i just dont know if i really picked up the concept right, i have been reading books and everything. but this question has been a mystery...hopefully it will end here. thanks a lot in advance :)
Does CSS just handle the layout property of the page? Is all of the image editing done in Photoshop and then imported into a webpage?
CSS allows you to position anything anywhere on your page. If the HTML is the meat of a meal at a world class restaraunt then CSS is the tools and spices used to create the meal and the Designer is the chef. Photshop would just be the extra sprig of parsley.
You don't necessarily need Photshop to create bautiful websites (but it's nice). Images are just images though, you don't want to rely on them for the complete background of your webpage.
That's another thing CSS is for. If the background-color of your website is #ebebeb then you can lay anything on top of that. CSS is very flexible.
I have the contrary view of Zen Garden. I'm more impressed with the graphics - they all look great.
Sometimes you don't have to specify every pixel for every box, particularly if you are using relative positioning.
Anyway, go to some of the designs you like on csszg and download that stylesheet. You will learn a lot.
