If you would like to get into the webmaster industry, you should know that Photoshop is the perfect tool for making your very own website.
Photoshop will allow even the beginning webmaster the ability to create an entire web template from scratch. After you're done, you can easily use
Image Ready to cut up the template image and spit out the HTML code for you - simple and easy. If you have something more specific within your
webpage you want to alter, like the navigation or certain images for example, Photoshop can helpyou with this as well. It doesn't matter what you are utilizing Photoshop for, it willdefinitelybenefit the overall image and smoothness of your website.

In the old days webmasters had to resort to coding their webpages by hand. This was a long and tedious process which was very drawn out -
testing and altering the code could take hours. With Photoshop on your side you don't have to worry about spending vast amounts of timecreating your website. You can create the overall look of your site and then transfer it to Image Ready, which will then slice the image into smaller HTML elements. After this, all you will have to do is insert your webpage content into the white space that you left for yourself in the template. After you have placed the content on your site, it will be ready to
go.

You should be concerned with load times when you are working with images. With Photoshop you can optimize all the images you work with so that you can make sure your visitors are getting the fastest load times
possible.

You will also be delighted to know that Photoshop can help brighten up your navigation bar. Using Image Ready, you can create superblookingrollover effects that will make your visitors want to click to other pages within your site. Instead of having to fiddle with Javascript to get this done, Image Ready will make sure it's already done for you, giving you more time to work on other things on your site.

As you can see Photoshop is one of the best weapons a webmaster has - so take full advantage of it!
