I meant the web page you have problems with, not a PhotoShop mockup.

basically what need is help slicing the images out of our photoshop version of our template design. what we need help is correctly slice out the images on here and create the html/css so we can load it up on our current site. www.analystwx.com

heres a smaller version image of the template

Do you want someone to do the whole thing for you? I'll move the thread to the job forum then. Maybe you should give people an idea of how much you are willing to pay though.

You may find someone who agrees to do "slicing" for $25, but I suspect it will in the end be a waste of $25.

The problem is the popular misconception that a website is created by Making a template (i.e. a mock-up image), then Slicing it. If the end website is really a fixed image, you may as well just send a large png image. If it isn't, this approach does not work *at all*.

You need someone to build a page to interface with your database (these maps and so on are in a database, right?) along the lines of your mockup. I would have thought you need to add at least one zero to $25 to expect a reasonable job of this. But you need to start with the backend DB stuff really...
Your mockup only includeseems to have one piece of "furniture" graphic

Ok, I think we went a little opposite ways on understanding this. We don't need the whole thing done, the html's are easy to do, we just need the header, layout, and background sliced into css, css is the big problem, just the layout, background and header. the images on that templates are just an example.

So pretty much you see a blank template, thats pretty much what it is and such, we need the style sheets done.

Looking at your PNG mockup (hardly what I'd call a template), I'd put the company name in an h1 element, and use a background image behind it.

You can make the background image very wide so it covers the width of the display area regardless of the size of the browser window (2560px should do for now), or you can make the background image tile to cover the full width of the display area. There's also a hybrid technique that uses two background images. One background image tiles. In front of that, another background image doesn't tile. The edges of the non-tiling image blend with the tiling background image, so the whole thing looks seemless. There's a brief discussion here:
http://code.google.com/apis/themes/example...auenfelder.html

Below that is a horizontal menu. There's a nice explanation of how to do that here:

The rest is a basic two-column layout.
