If you don't want to play around with css transform. Honestly the best thing is to use rectangles and ensuring the rollover states do not cross over the rectangles. Example: http://imm.io/J4D8 I also found this if it helps, http://doctype.com/rollover-done-css

What is the standard width for a website in pixels? My experience with slicing a template in Photoshop has always been tedious and slow. What version of Photoshop are you using? Generally, I choose to not use slices and simply use the marquee tool (Rectangle, etc.) and copy/paste to a new image and save that. Then use HTML/CSS to align it correctly. Say ...

I've never worked in an HTML chop shop, but the reasons they slice designs quickly are probably the same reasons any professional team gets work done fast: They have a lot of experience doing it Many chop shops are professional web design teams who chop up designs in their downtime to earn some extra cash. They will have sliced hundreds or thousands of ...

Before now I have opened PSDs with the Gimp but it is not the same. Layers go missing, things involving text look different and latest features in new Photoshop versions simply do not work. Therefore, even if a PSD file does open in the Gimp you are not entirely sure if it is looking as it is supposed to. Therefore, you do need Photoshop. Photoshop works ...

This may be difficult to answer since you have some pretty detailed questions. If I could give one answer, I'd say that you should check out w3schools.com and learn all the HTML markup and CSS you can. From there approach web design from a strictly CSS and HTML stance.

I don't know much about Gimp but there are 2 ways to do it in PhotoShop. Also, if the files were created in PhotoShop Gimp can have issues showing all of the layers so it may not even be a viable solution. The first way is create slices with the slice tool and then do File>Save for Web & Devices. This will allow you to save the page in chunks. This is ...

960px, (with or without a grid system) yes, is a good fit. The majority of screens out there are above 1024 or 1024 (wide. Actually 960 is due to the scroll bars, etc), 800x600 has become less and less (very low % according to my stats...) used, although smaller resolutions are being a bit more common for mobiles and handhelds, but is better to do alternate ...

You can create parallelograms with CSS properties, although it looks like it shows up as a square in IE. You also may be able to use a good old fashioned imagemap with some area tags utilizing shape="poly" and coordinates for the points. Not sure if that works with rollover or not.

Although not supported by older browsers, you could have a look at the transform property in CSS. http://davidwalsh.name/css-transform-rotate It would be quite fiddly though, I'd suggest you to use background images and position the text above it (and possibly even the text as image) in order to achieve the effect shown in the url you have posted

Any of these services should be able to do this job just fine. Finding a contractor via oDesk will probably cost you a lot more than they will.

Here is my setup: The list of all theme images does exist and it is called the css file. The css file references images in a folder called images and content images are kept elsewhere in a content folder. To get a list of the images referenced in the css you can use command line 'grep' to list all of the lines containing 'url'. As for PSD originals, ...

View - but do not copy directly - the CSS/HTML/etc from your favourite trendy web 2.0 websites. When learning, it's best to look at documentation and class references to program instead of copypasta'ing. Good luck :)
