Default Photoshop CS3 webpage layout question

Hi everyone,

Im designing a webpage in photoshop CS3 and preparing to move it into Dreamweaver CS3.
This may be a dumb question (im a novice at this)but what size should my canvas be to start with to fill any browser?.
Should I just start with a file that is say 5MB in size and then scale it down in "save for web and devices"?.
I am going to slice the page up and make each piece of text and the main image a seperate slice.

Thankyou!.

Don't worry about the size of the actual file this isn't what you're transfering, as once you're done designing you'll want to 'flatten' it and then cut it up.

it's the physical size you should be looking at. I start at around 790px wide maximum (to accomodate people on the Island of Umbabu with 800px wide monitors) . No limit height wise if you're scroling vertically.

Does that answer your question ?

Are you looking to design it using CSS ?

Rob

10px is not wide enough for me and those people in Umbabu.. the scrollbar is wider than that. Try something around 760-770px instead

OT: pst.. send me that team leader graphic.
