  • Damien, 10 March 2010

    Thank you for these wonderful tutorials. I spent that last few hours replicating one of the samples using Photoshop. I’m just wondering if there are any instructions on creating a website out of these samples. E.g – How do I create hyperlinks, etc? What format do I save it in after creating it in Photoshop? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Some great web design tips. Perfect for beginners to web design and even some useful tips for design agencies. One thing to mention through is that very heavy use of image based fonts isn’t search engine friendly and quite a few of the designs utilise images for text.
