Slicing tool plugin?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, I'm new.

I'm not even sure if that is even possible as a plugin, I don't know much about development. But was wondering if there is one. I absolutly love paint.net and after using photoshop 7.0 for several years I think its just about as good as PS. but the only thing thats missing that I did use on a daily basis on PS is the slicing tool for making web layouts. Does anyone know if that feature is avaliable or ever will be?

I've had to overhaul one website created this way, and I don't wish to do it again :( The result was OK in terms of visual hang-together, but sucked when the owner wanted to shift/replace one item because everything on the page had to be rejigged.

It was incredibly large to download each page too. The UK government standards recommend a 40kb limit for homepages (yes 40kb!) and you just won't get near that with this technique.

I recommend you avoid the technique. Learn CSS instead and target your images to the important areas only, with text being the main information source.
