Hey guys I have noticed some really neat designs as I have been surfing the internet lately. What I'm wondering is how I can make my site have the designs that I see in other sites(well something like it). Like I have seen sites where the background color fades from dark to light, and the boxes look like the are bulging and all kinds of stuff like that. Can I create this myself without buying any software?


Thanks,



Joe

The color fade can be done with a CSS Animation Library (look in the "Post a Javascript" forum for mine ;-)). The bulging is probably images...

from what i see from the screenshots, it looks like GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) can make gradients (it's free).

I have gimp but it has recently craped out on me. I will probably just have to uninstall it and then reinstall. But does anybody know of a really good site to get some colors designs for my templates?


Thanks,

P.S. I have seen some cool drop down menus made from css, and everytime I try to find a tutorial I get pre-made script. Does anybody know of a good place or subject to start learning how to make a dropown menu?

Yes, and it better, considering how much it costs.
