So here's the deal. I'm trying to edit a couple of web templates with Adobe Photoshop and Image ready. Everything is cool until I save the optimized version so that I can see my page in html. Instead of text separated by a few graphics, I get a page which is made up of only graphics, sliced up in different section. I cannot copy text or do anything! The page becomes a sliced up artwork!

My Questions:

1. How do you use Adobe Photoshop and ImageReady to edit webpages and end up with actual web pages (with text copying capabilities)?

2. How do do you use templates with psd files and CSS script files correctly?

The following page is and example of what I'm talking about:

URL: "http://pcresurrection.bravehost.com/"

I am really lost here. I'm tired of building stiff pages with no life!

Help!

You have to know what parts from the template you need, which are going to be backgrounds, repeated or not, which are going to be regular graphics, and if there's any areas of solid color that would be made by html/css alone. And really important to, is how you actually choose to structure your website. Tables? CSS Layout? Fixed or Floating?

To know all this, you kinda have to know HTML, there's no easy button from having a psd template to having a working webpage. :(
