I need help from a good webmater,
I want to make a websie layout on Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 but I'm not sure what size to start off with and how to do rollover or any of the stuff

I dont understand how to make such a good site, I've realized its alot harder then it seems.

So I need help from someone like the Leela Zone how has had experience with Web Design on Jasc Paint Shop Pro (8)

mic will probably come around and give you some pointers.  But as far as PSP is concerned, I'd read through all the faq and instruction stuff that Jasc provides with the program, you'll learn a few things  wink

The big thing is finding a framegrab from an episode and... "tracing" over it, then shrinking it to it's purpose...

I'm new to the "tracing" part

I've done some stuff like it but not mush "tracing" yet

I was introduced to the whole tracing thing buy KyleM and TFH Tutorial

Now I can see how some people do their art, becaue so far all I had done before that is image editeding and a whole bunch of cool stuff like that

anyway, does anyone know how to start building a site layout on Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 (PSP)

You should start with your target audience's resolution. The safest is 800x600 but that is pretty limiting - 57% of users are running 1024x768 or higher, so if you go with that demographic you should create your website with a target width of around 991 pixels. The height is up to you of course. Use your drawing tools to create an image that is what you want your site to look like, as if you took a screenshot after it was finished. Make filler text where text should be. Once you have your layout designed, figure out how you want to lay out the side (using tables or DIVs). I find that sketching a  layout breakdown is easiest. Then select sections of your layout - for example, select the header part, column header images, etc. - and save those selections out as JPG or GIF (PNG is good but not widely supported inline yet). Then write your HTML code and put the images in accordingly.

If that doesn't make any sense, then you should probably get a book. Try this one http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1562057561/qid=1089691700/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/103-4322980-4361435?v=glance&s=books&n=507846
(FYI, I've never used Paint Shop Pro... professionals use Photoshop, but the principles should be the same).

If you want a good image editor get Photo Shop, its the professionals choice, but im not sure about Paint Shop Pro

Your site looks realy cool, but i dont think u should publicise it before its finished, people will  see that at the moment it has nothing, so whenever that person thinks about your site in the future they will remember a tiny little site with nothing in it and wont bother going back there.

well the site will never be finished then cause I'm never finished with all my art

the web site is finished but I dont see how I could finish the art stuff, though I should put more in it so I guess I sorta see what your saying
