    I have been asked to create a movie poster to promote my website in theatre lobbies... a very cool thing, but I have enough trouble getting the site to look okay using dreamweaver, I have no idea how I could take elemtnes from the site pages and assemble them into something that would still look okay blown up to 27wx41h! here is the site http://cinemasightlines.com/index.php I was just thinking of taking a couple of the pages and arranging them under a blowup of the banner... but do I do that in photoshop or printShop, or what?

    Well, you're probably going to need some vector software such as Adobe Illustrator. Typically you're web graphics are going to be around 72dpi, and you'll need a minimum of 300 dpi to print nicely. So, you'll probably have to re-create a lot of your elements and import high resolution (300dpi) images in order for it to print properly.

    Did Illustrator come with CS3?

    got CS3 design premium or extended something like that, I dropped all but DW and PS, those are hard enough to understand. still have the disc. bought it from someone who had a group license, he sold me one of the keys, then Adobe disabled it. can install but not update.
