Richard what is going on with your "Design In Q" site update? What kind of things are you looking to implement with the new site?

I am looking forwards to seeing it http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

The site really looks incredible.

Did you create the graphics or were they based on some kind of template?

It is an inspired site. I got the idea from a template I had kicking around. There is about 30 layers making up that header.

It's amazingly visual.

How do you start it all when you want to create a layout with the graphics? Do you use photoshop?

I do use Photoshop...however I mostly use Macromedia Fireworks for all of my graphics. I find it to be a very powerful tool.

Does that allow you to edit the images or is that more for layout purposes?

Richard,
Is the forum thing there up and going? I am just wondering, because I registered, then received an email with the verification link, but when I follow the link it takes me to a broken page.

For creating graphics, altering images and making simple shapes. I use Dreamweaver more for the layouts.

Well, the outcome is fantastic. Are you going to be posting any of your templates for sale in the future? I bet others would be interested in that http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

In my opinion Fireworks can do the same as Photoshop using less resources.

Ya, it is really amazing what you can come up with. That image has 12 layers. It takes time and practice...and a lot of drafts.
