    Hey. I really have loved your tutorials. I have a question though. How do you get them from photoshop to the web? I’m wanting to use blogger or blogspot to host my page. What program do you use or how do you get the buttons to link to different pages too? Does this make sense.. I would love any help of advise you could share!

    Thanks so much
