Hey guys!
I need a little help with this HTML email I'm trying to make. So basically I have a PSD with some images and text that looks like a flyer. I used the slice tool to make some of the stuff at the bottom buttons for links to websites. Once I save all this out though, the text becomes part of the JPEG image now and I cant select the text or copy it etc from the email. Is there any way to make this HTML email look exactly the same but with selectable text?
Thanks in advance for the help!

Take a look at http://articles.sitepoint.com/article/code-html-email-newsletters to see some examples and best practices.

Thanks that definitely helps! Also I would have to re design the text and alignment etc in the table to look like the original psd right? Or is there another way

either way, I figured it out guys thanks!
I slice it in photoshop, and then switch the image link from the img src tag to the td tag as a background, and then just add text inside the td tag!
