Busy doesn’t begin to describe my life in the past few weeks, thus I haven’t had a lot of time for posting, but I have found one AWESOME plug in for PhotoShop called SiteGrinder that builds entire sites for you, without ever needing to use Dreamweaver. And the only thing you need to do differently is to name your layers as -rollover, or -popup, or -button.
I’ve only done one site design with it so far, but it does have some great possibilities.
If you’re using Gimp with Windows, an alternative might be PhotoWebber, which doesn’t have all the fancy popup building features, but it does do a great job of splitting the layers into great compressed size graphics.
It handles nearly all sorts of PSD files, so converting from Gimp’s native format to PSD (as long as layers can be preserved) should work great.
