    Best way to design home page

    Which is the best way to design the Home page of the website.

    Someone told me that first design Homepage in Photoshop and then slice it using fireworks . I amde the homepage in PS after spending lot of time. Now i don't know how to slice . I really don't know whether this is the corecct method or not . But after slicing how can i link the code with the slices . too confusing for me.

    I have downloaded the free templates from internet , they also have psd file with it . but how can i convert it into workable website. has anyone used this method before
    Please de-reputate me

    Use the file as a background, then use it as a guide and make the things 'Float' ontop of the background.

    That slicing technique does work, I've done it before. Basically you use it to carve up the overall image to extract the graphics bits you need for when you lay the web page out. And this is where you take note of graphical patterns that repeat and such. For example if there is a bar going across the page, you can make a narrow slice of it and repeat it across the page.

    I used that slicing technique on my blog all those years ago when it was designed. So you can have a graphically heavy website without as much weight as it looks.
