    Using Photoshop for page  Layout in dreamweaver

    chemystery Level 1
      Hi all,

      I'm trying to understand how I get a page layout from photoshop into dreamweaver. If I export the layout with html and slices all the text layers become images and are sliced up. I want to preserve the text as text. Basically once I have a layout in Photoshop how do I use that layout to create a web page in dreamweaver?

          Slice it and export the slices as images.

          Build the page in DW, using as few images as possible, and leaving areas
          where you want text content open. This will require that you know a bit
          about HTML - there is no easy pushbutton way to do it in DW.

          If you would be willing to spend a few dollars to avoid having to learn
          HTML, you can get passable (not excellent) results from a product called
          "SiteGrinder" - Google it.
