    You don't start from there.

    You start with a picture or a drawing of what you want to end up with.

    Yep, Dreamweaver, when used correctly is a development tool, the "design" should start off as you say, with a sketch. Then the graphic elements such as logos, backgrounds, buttons, icons etc. can be created in a vector editing tool with layering capability so each image can be exported/saved independently thus negating the need for any 'slicing' to be done. Using vectors rather than a bitmap/raster editor means the image can be resized without any loss of definition or quality from 'dithering' or 'aliasing'

    Illustrator (expensive) or Inkscape (Open source and free) NOT Photoshop as it is a bitmap/raster editor.

    once you've opened a graphics program the penny will drop.

    What's the local currency you use? I think that might be causing the misunderstanding.
