What's due Tuesday

Just a reminder:

At the beginning of Tuesday's class, you should have your tweaked designs (in Photoshop) completed. You also need to have chosen a css layout from Dreamweaver that you think will be an appropriate template to use as a guide for moving your Photoshop designs into html (once you open Dreamweaver, go to File > New, and select from the variety of layouts: 1 column fixed, centered, 1 column fixed, centered, header and footer, etc. Figure out which of these layouts is best suited for your design. Also, please have either a 1-paragraph description, or a sketch, showing how you want to slice your photoshop file in order to extract the graphics and incorporate them into html.
