Image Slicing in Photoshop CS3 | Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Tutorials | Layers Magazine: For Everything Adobe No doubt you’ve heard about image slicing, but do you know what it is and how it works? Image slicing is a technique for creating a web page (or a component of a web page, like a header or navigation menu) visually in Photoshop (Fireworks and Illustrator also allow you to slice images, too). But how does it work? Well, you’d first design a page in Photohsop exactly as you want it to look when it goes live on the web. Then you cut out all the page components—title bars, buttons, navigation menus, and so on—using Photoshop’s Slice tool. Then, when you save everything out, Photoshop saves each slice as an individual graphic, and (and this is the icing on the cake for the code-leary) all the necessary code will automatically be written as well. Finally, once everything’s saved out, you can pull everything into Dreamweaver and finish off your layouts with any necessary tweaks. Once your dimensions are set, it’s simply a matter of building your design. Slicing up your design is the fun part.

NRA Halts Sale of Ex-Members' Names Mar. 3, 1994 12:10 AM ET WASHINGTON (AP) _ The National Rifle Association, besieged by members angered to learn that the group was selling former members' names to anyone with the money to buy them, canceled the practice, effective immediately. Wednesday's action by NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre Jr. came a day after The Associated Press reported that the group had been selling lists of more than 697,000 former NRA members who had dropped out in the past four years. ''The privacy of our members is of paramount importance and outweighs the revenue benefit of renting the lists,'' LaPierre said, stressing that active NRA members' names have always been and will remain confidential. Robert Marcario, the NRA's managing director of membership, had said earlier: ''Our rule is, somebody gone for six months, they're fair game and we can sell their name.'' Many organizations sell membership lists, but the NRA promises to keep its members' names secret.
