Once you've designed your web site in photoshop, you need to slice the individual images and place them into your HTML code. For example, if you have a menu bar with buttons, you cut out one button and with the help of CSS, you use the same image over and over again but the text is added with HTML. That will reduce loading time because it doesn't have to load 3, 4, 5 buttons... just one. Here is a demo of what I'm talking about:

Hope this helps,
I'm trying (for the first time) to design a website in Photoshop. I've been reading about slices and I'm trying to figure out how to handle multiple pages -- I have "Home", "About" etc. tabs down the side of my layout and I would like to create links from those... so when you click on them, different information pops up in the body area of my page. Can I do this in Photoshop? Do I need to separate the pages into different files?? Right now I have everything in one drawing -- I was trying to simply turn on the body text I needed for the corresponding button, create a slice, then move on to the next. I hope this makes sense. I really, really appreciate any advice!
