Guys, is it possible to make a background in CSS, with like a drop shadow effect on the sides? (Gives a gradient effect). Or just is it possible to add a gradient effect to the background?
Also, if I make a header in photoshop, how do I make it in HTML so that whenever someone clicks on the header image, it takes them back to the home page? Thanks.
For the CSS gradient, yes it is possible. I recommend you pay a little visit to http://gradients.glrzad.com/
For the header, if you make it in Photoshop, you can but the conversion to HTML is not automatic. The general idea is to cut the PSD (Photoshop file) to isolate the most importante part, and save them individually (easier than sprites) as different images. Once you have alll the different parts that are forming your header, you need to reassemble them with HTML and CSS. It's realy just the general idea and it always depends on your design, but I'm sure you can find a guide out there that covers it. Some people don't bother and simply save the whole header as a single image and then add it on their page, but this is very unelegant because : 1) It's not flexible/fluid (it doesn't ajust with the brower's width, because it's a static image) and 2) it'll make your site load much slower, where as with CSS, you can repeat horizontally or vertically whatever you need so instead of the browser downloading the whole image it downloads little parts and adjust them as needed to have the same effect.
