In the past, I have used photoshop to design web pages. What I did was draw out the page for how I wanted it to look. Then, where I needed links, I used the slice tool and sliced the web page up. I saved this in some format that the saved files included css code. I could manipulate this css code if I wanted. Photoshop did a really nice job of this. I do not have access to photoshop anymore. Does either GIMP or Paint.Net do something similar?
