    adding text to photoshop image

    ben8999
      Ok, so I created a simple webpage in photoshop, spliced it up and now I put it in dreamweaver in order to add some text over this "image." How exactly do I go about doing this?

          You could use the image as a back ground image. All text would then appear above the image, but positioning the image and text will not be easy.
          You could also put the text in place on the image in photoshop

            how would i use the image as a background image

            and also i realize that i can put in the text in photoshop, however i do not want the text to be a graphic, in other words the user on my site should be able to highlight the text.

              You would use CSS to specify that the image is a background image for
              whatever container has your text.

              And John-in-UK is correct in that if you want the text to be precisely
              placed within the background image you are going to be nailing jelly to a
              wall. Your visitors can resize the text in their browser, and your
              alignment goes out the window.
