    How to add graphics to an option box

    I've created an optin box in Photoshop that I want to bring into Dreamweaver to add to the header in my web page.

    I'm familiar with copying autoresponder code into my HTML editor but ...how do I save my Photoshop optin graphic so that the simple text box is now a graphic optin?

    thx in advance for your help...

    What do you mean optin?

    Well you should probably save your Photoshop graphic as a .png to start. But I'm not really sure what you are asking about.

    an optin graphic for an autoresponder. typically, optins are simple text forms. i want to add a graphic to mine. there are "graphic optin" packages for sale all over the 'net but i'm cheap so i created my own.

    the graphic is basically made up of layers and accommodates "placeholders" for the name and email fields. no matter what format i save the PSD file as, it can only be saved as a graphic file type. i suspect that there are a series of files (gif, css?) that are involved but i haven't a clue how people use graphics for optin boxes.

    suggestions..?

    So you mean like a checkbox? Are you wanting to make a custom checkbox for your forms?

    He means 'Opt In' not optin.

    My suggestion would be to start with some basic html and css tutorials.

    Actually I think the OP meant "Option"
