Question by Laurashrti: How can I create a drop-down menu for my website?
I am using ImageReady CS2 and DreamWeaver CS4. I want to create the images for the drop down menu myself. How can I make the drop down menu? Is there an easy way to do this (still using my images) in either of these programs?
Answer by Colanth
The program is irrelevant – you have to WRITE a menu that uses images. Do a web search.

Question by Evelin: How do I properly paste a transparent Photoshop image onto another Photoshop image?
I’m working in CS4. The image I’m trying to paste is a GIF file. When I paste it, the actual image doesn’t show up–just a grey outline. What do I do to fix this?
Answer by Anon
I think what you’re doing is pasting a .gif onto a regular .psd file. That will not enable the .gif to be animated, because you’re now operating in the .psd file, which is not the format used for animations.
Instead, try moving the .psd file into the .gif file in Image Ready (which is where I assume you created the .gif file). If, for example, you wanted a .gif of a moving stick figure to dance around in front of a non-moving .psd background, you would send the .psd background file to Image Ready and place the dancing stick man (which was created in Image Ready) on top of the .psd.
Then be sure to save all of that as a .gif in Image Ready, as doing so ensures that your document is in a format that supports animation.

Question by bry4nm: How do I make an image with a clear background?
I have a logo that I am making that fades out in a reflection of sorts. When I save the file (i’ve tried jpeg, gif, psd) without a background, it saves the file with a white background by default. How do I save the file (using photoshop CS4) so that it keeps the clear background so the image can be used on websites with backgrounds of different colors?
Answer by rabbitslikecarrots
you go to file -> save for web and devices -> it will open a dialog page where you can select file extention, you will have to use gif or png, select transperency (it ll be in the right top corner) and press save.
Hope that helped
Question by Tyler Hext: How to put one image on top of another in photoshop?
I cut out part of a picture using the magnetic lasso tool in Photoshop CS4 on my mac and i want to put it on top of another separate picture. (I cut out a wheel from one car and want to put it on a different car) When i try to drag it it comes up empty on the other picture, just a dotted outline. How do I do this?
Answer by geek546
Copy and paste the selection’s content. In this way Photoshop creates a new layer, which you can drag.
Question by spadoinkle: How to design a website in Photoshop?
I use photoshop CS4/CS5 and i want to design a website. whats the best way to do this? any tips are appreciated, thanks!
Answer by Mike1942f
If you mean drag around images to say “this is how I want it to look on the screen” then you just collect stuff and type text into the blank image form.
If you mean make a website that people can actually use to read and have links to other pages and enlarge small thumbnails, etc., then you are trying to use the wrong software.
In HTML, every single thing you see on the screen, from a single letter to a logo to a photo image has the potential for leading some place else and while it is possible to map a single photo/image to do that like the map on this page http://www.mikegigi.com/classes.htm it requires a whole bunch of HTML code to do the areas for mouse click.
I use FrontPage from MicroSoft for drag n’drop page work and CuteMap to build map image code.
How Do I Add An Additional Point In Adobe Photoshop CS4 After Making A Complete Selection Using The Pencil?
Question by Alvin: How Do I Add An Additional Point In Adobe Photoshop CS4 After Making A Complete Selection Using The Pencil?
I am using the pencil too in Adobe Photoshop with a picture that has very distinct proportions and my only choice is using this tool. But the problem is that while I was selecting the area to cut out of the picture, I didn’t create enough points in some areas to be able to diligently to redraw and resize. How can I create an additional point
Answer by nick
I think you mean you’re using the PEN tool and not the pencil tool. : P
CTRL+D to deselect your selection
Switch to the Paths tab (grouped with the layers panel).
Select the path you created that you want to add more anchors to.
Switch to the “direct selection tool” (it’s found in the group of tools directly below the type/text tool).
Click the path with the direct selection tool and you should see “nodes” or “anchor points” appear.
Now you can right-click to add more points anywhere along the path, or you can switch back to the pen tool and left-click anywhere along the path to add more points.
Don’t forget to switch to the layers panel before copy/pasting your selection.
Hope this helped
Question by Kelcie: How do you cut out shape on photoshop without ANY type of background?
I want to overlap shapes on Adobe InDesign CS2 but I have to cut out the image on Adobe Photoshop CS4 first. Everytime I put it into my InDesign though, it comes up with a white background and covers the other shapes. How do I change this and have just the image itself?
Answer by Drake
save it as a psd, not a tif and delete the “background” layer, so you just see a checkerboard pattern. Another way to do it would be to create a path using the paths tab. Or in InDesign you can go to Clipping Paths – Options – Detect Edges.
Question by Aya R: How high does the print resolution have to be for me to have a decent crisp image?
I’m using both corel photo x2 and photoshop cs4 to create an 8.5″ x 11″ image with the resolution of 250 pixels/inch. In corel the text in my image looks smooth but in photoshop a bit pixelated? I’m concerned on what it would look like in print/hard copy
Answer by T-Bar
In corel, the print and screen drivers are more realistic as to the final ouput.
Open the image in corel or whatever, and resample it at 600 dpi. That’s it. If it’s slightly pixelated, just go under the effect tool in corel and apply a slight ‘smooth’ or a slight blurr.
When you print, use glossy paper and you don’t have to choose “BEST” settings for a crisp output. Just select “NORMAL. At 300 dpi, the print should be very nice. If you don’t mind wasting ink, then select BEST mode as your final print.
