    well, you can CROP down to the button. But if you slice the page up you're going to get slices of the entire page.

            Basically, you have your art board (see above), and you "slice" it up. When you slice up a file you end up with lots of little images. The parts of the file that you want to keep, and all the other sections that are around it.

            So if all you want is a button in the middle, when you save out the file you will get all the extra bits around the button as well. You can either keep them, or through them out.

            Hence why I said for him to crop the file down, instead of slicing it up, to the size of the button. If a button is all he wants when he saves.

            Kind of make sense?


            I will do a write up on it later on for my new tutorial section of my site.

              I get the bit about cropping to the button, but why slice an image into bits? (I know I'm being totally n00b here, I'm trying to pick up some Web knowledge wherever I can.)

                I understand now. I was just watching a tutorial and when the guy went to slice his buttons all those lines didnt show up. Only what he actually sliced. I didn't know if there was a way around that or if it would even affect anything. Your a genius

                    Thank you for answering my questions. The project that I'm working on is about how math is used in almost every profession, so each student has to pick a job and then research how math is used in that...

                    In my area of the country, there are an abundance of this.

                    Believe me, despite over 12 years of agency experience and 15 years being a ''freelancer'', even I have encountered this bias. Especially...

                    I wouldn't say it means nothing. If it's coupled with all the other things, like internships, actual employment and education, it definitely counts for something.
