I am trying to learn adobe photoshop. I just bought it!


I want to make my own postbit design.

what steps do I need to start with.

Size ?
after I create the graphics then what ?

How tdo I cut it for my website ?

I think I can handle editing templates for it to fit, but the size of the full graphic uncut ?

Any help would be nice and also maybe a website with a good tutorial

I'm useless with PHotoshop. I tried the trial once, no luck.

Photoshop is easy once you know how things work and know your way around it...

You can't make a postbit in Photoshop, just images for it.

The rest has to be coding into your templates.

..man am I a newbie or something lol I know you can't "make" the whole postbit in photoshop that is why in the last message I said "so what size image do I need to start with to make a postbit ?"

Meaning what size image do I need to make before I slice it up in image ready and put it into my templates

Depends on your Screen resolution - I think:confused:

Yeah, just do it full screen then. Don't think it would really matter, would it?
