All images are rectangular. To have an image look like it has rounded corners, you must do some trickery. Either the corner must be made transparent or it must be made the color of your background. If you make the corner transparent, you cannot anti-alias the corner because then you would need to use a .png image with full alpha transparency, and that is not well-supported by older browsers.
The polygon slice tool is used to define an area within a rectangular image that can be used as a hot spot in an image map. It does not define an irregularly-shaped image.
Can you help me with this. Like i have designed a webpage using photoshop. Now how can implement the design as my web (validations..etc..). Is it possible to do in Dreamweaver ? If possible please help. Just i need an intro, If i get used to then i can handle it. This is my problem.
You may have produced a design - an image - in Photoshop, but you have to turn that into HTML for it to be a Web page. For that, yes, you should use Dreamweaver, not Photoshop and not Fireworks. Although Fireworks does output HTML, it is not intended for llive sites, it is only for mockups. You can't just draw a nice picture and expect a program to turn that into a decent Web site for you. Programs are not that smart! Dreamweaver is a complex program and so you need to have some understanding of what you're doing when you go to use it.
Here's a book I like:
HTML, XHTML, and CSS, Sixth Edition (Visual Quickstart Guide) by Elizabeth Castro
It covers everything in small chunks and is light enough to carry around and read.
Once you understand what HTML is, then open Dreamweaver and go through the tutorials that are included with the program. Dreamweaver is a complex program (just as Photoshop is) and you'll need to learn how to use the program, too.
Thanks Pixor !!!!
