    Hi MacRumors!

    I hope you all can help me and maybes point me in the right direction.

    I want to get into web design and have been reading up on HTML and CSS, but a friend of mine wants a website creating and asked if I want to have a go for practice.

    The problem I have is that she has provided me the designs in PDF files. I read something about cutting the pictures and having them load as small picture files to create the whole page.

    The questions I have are:
    1) Is this even possible?
    2) If possible then how? Google only brings up web to pdf.
    3) Is this a good way to build it? It is only a 4 page website with a mail form.

    I managed to create jpegs from the pdf files she supplied me with.

    I was planning on just uploading jpegs as a quick and easy way around it just like the coming soon page (

    Is this a good method or bad?

    In my opinion this is a bad method.

    Sites whose "design" consist of one large image with perhaps an image map for links are hardly sites at all.

    You say you want to get into web design and learn HTML/CSS, well there's no time like the present. My daddy used to say, "Do it right or don't do it at all."

    Best is to cut the images and begin to use CSS to help display them as needed. It will take some time but doing is a good way to learning.
