Accurately positioning slices with CSS?

Posted 27 September 2012 - 10:51 AM

Hi I've sliced up my layout made in Photoshop now I'm just trying to figure out the easiest way to accurately position my slices. By default of course Photoshop positions the images using a table, I'm wondering if anyone could suggest the quickest method of postioning my sliced images with CSS instead.

Thanks.

You will be told many times that tables are NOT for layouts as you are correct, that is what CSS is for. Honestly, the "quickest" way to do something is after you know what your doing. I would learn CSS more and become familiar with the box model. There are tons of tutorials out there. You could look up PSD to HTML tutorials but I'd suggest you learn some CSS first. Google or tutorials from this site will help you with that. Things like float, positioning, absolute positioning, relative & static positioning are all important to build a web pages layout. Take the time to learn CSS and only use tables for tabular data i.e.. something you would see in an excel spreadsheet. Good luck!

Well I do know some basic positioning with CSS as you said absolute. Is there no way to effectively link all the slices up in their orders without doing them one by one?

Thanks.
