Threaded View

I am creating a website for a local doctor (vet) for free - he is a
friend of the family and since I've made a few simple sites before I
acknowledged his request for a website by telling him I'd whip him one
up by two weeks from now. He cannot sell prescription medicine on ebay,
so he would like me to create a site for him. I want to try something
new - image maps.

A friend of mine told me I could use this psd template to make the

Obviously, I will need to edit out the text via layers in photoshop and
replace them with the various types of medicine he offers for sale. My
question to you, is should I use Dreamweaver to create the image maps?

Also, lets say I have a link to a narrative on a cat medicine. Can I
'blank' out the middle of the psd file and fill it with text for the
description or do I have to keep the picture in its entirety?

Should I say the image mapped website as png or jpg?

Please help ! Thanks !

Uh, I really don't know how to reply to this without insulting you.  I do
believe you have the wrong idea about html and web pages in general.

As a sidelight, I read the text in the center box of that "psd image" and
it's bullshit.

Have a nice day.

And, of course, armed with this knowledge of your character and

not reply at all.

image maps for basically the whole page? You would not do your friend
any service unless all his customers are on broadband....

If you were just putting up a basic site the tells location, hours, and
a bit about the place that is fine for novices, however once you add
selling stuff and client financial information, well that is a whole
other story.

You will need some kind of shopping cart, and secure checkout for the
clients. One can script all these themselves but again this is not for a
novice! If you do not know what you are doing, you could put your
friend's clients' private information at risk. I am sure he has gotten
beaucoup pamphlets from his merchant services about penalties and fines
if you leak customers' financial info.

 From your question I can garner that your are not up to the task. If
you really want to help your friend, offer to do him a personal site and
urge him to hire someone professional to do a commercial site.

Sorry just being straight with you especial when the product is
prescription drugs...
