Does anyone have a good tutorial on this? I went through the tutorials I found in the sticky, but I didn't find anything that in depth. I can already make the layout, I just need to know how to add text and editable regions if possible. Thank you!

Slicing tells imageready the layout of your page through tables (I believe). If you don't have to slice a lot I'd recommend figuring out a way to do it with div's and css instead.

but if you want to do it in image ready just click "file>save optimized as" and then select "html and images" ... I'm not sure if that's what you want to achieve ... is it?

Hmmm, coding should never be done with either program (Photoshop or ImageReady). Ladies and Gentlemen, tables are becoming obsolet as a means for web layouts. You may as well make your site using frames,lol.

If you have PS 6, you can use the slice using CSS option in ImageReady.

There may be a similar option in PS CS, but I haven't been inclined to look for it yet.

Agreed. Also, when it comes to slicing layouts and such.. it can be hard to get them to expand smoothly with text. All sites I make can expand down to take unlimited text. Its not easy to do with a sliced layout. Its a very old, very outdated method.

I still use tables, but now only 1 or 2 compared to the 12+ I used to use, not to mention colspans, and all that other locked up and strange nastiness lol.

It easier to just save the image in the format you want, (jpg, gif, whatever) then manually slice and save the images, you'll find you can replace alot of the background and spacer areas with just color generated by your CSS or td bgcolor. It may take a little longer, especially if your not used to it, but you'll find yourself with a MASSIVLY cleaner webpage, that you can do a whole lot more with than you might have expected.
