I have Photoshop 6.0 and want to make my first web page. The program seems very difficult for beginners, and I’m not satisfied with the "Help". So I was looking for a tutorial (preferably in PDF) which shows you step by step to make an easy web page including some text and easy graphics. Anyone seen any links or published documents?

Google it.

Photoshop, especially Photoshop 6 is not the program for making web pages. ImageReady, which is included in PS 6 can get you a bit closer but you need to have a web program or learn some basic HTML, which is quite easy.

If you’re on PC try Arachnophilia which is a free and pretty good web page creation program. There are others.

Be sure to update to Photoshop 6.0.1.

Believe me Photoshop is not the place to start making webpages, by all means make graphics you use on the web with it but use a web program to create your webpages life will seem much sweeter.


Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.

JpegSizer is an image resizing utility that includes a web gallery builder and uploader. It generates thumbnail pages with links to full-size image pages, complete with text and navigation buttons.

You are having problems because Photoshop is not a program that you use to make Web pages. It’s a bit like saying that you are trying to use Microsoft Excel to make a 3D animated movie, and you’re having trouble.

Use a Web page creation program such as Dreamweaver or Golive or Front Page to make Web pages.

In PS CS & CS2

File>Automate>Web Photogallery

It’s okay and with a bit of html knowledge you can edit the template file to suit your needs. I create most in dreamweaver but I do use PS CS2 html engine to automate the gallery pages.

As I said, It is okay but not great.

Certainly, Photoshop is not good for all web pages, since it’s not great for text, cannot do forms, has no FTP ability, etc. but it _is_ a design application (a very good one) and web pages are often designed – so it seems natural to me for people to want to use it for web creation. And it seems natural to actually use it for that.

I wrote the SiteGrinder plug-in especially for that purpose, trying to sensibly leverage Photoshop’s design abilities into smart web page creation (not just slicing or always-graphics pages).

I’d be interested in feedback.

You say that PS is not for web pages and has no FTP ability. What we don’t know is what the OP thinks is a "web page". Quite often I will do a grouping of photographs, perhaps with some text, and ftp the result up as a url ending .jpg. I don’t call that a web page, but it is certainly a web site.

The OP may consider this a "web page". After all, it’s on the web and it’s a page.

To really answer the OP’s question, it’s needed to know what he/she thinks is a "web page". If it’s an Adobe Photo Gallery, or a .jpg accessible by loading a URL, then the comments here may have discouraged him from doing what can be easily done.

I’d be interested in feedback.
