For basic image slicing, there's the Slice Filter (Filters==>Web==>Slice). Make sure you set the guides first. You can also create image maps.

What do you mean exactly? Because what you are asking doesn't make much sense.

The gimp is an image editing program, so it produces images (.jpg, .gif, .png, .etc). You can't convert image formats to html (and you certainly don't convert "gimp"), but you can place images made with gimp inside html (i.e. web pages).

To do that you need to know something about html, at least enough to use a wysiwyg web page editor.

So please explain in detail what you are trying to do.


Doing the reverse, BTW, converting web pages to images, is relatively easy.

No, I just found out that there are softwares for converting from Photoshop .PSD to HTML and CSS, so - wondered if there was anything like that for Linux. What I'd like to do is draw out the page in the graphics s/w and have it automatically make the webpage for me.

I really have no idea what photoshop is capable of. From a bit of googling it appears to have html templating support built in, so you can slice images and build basic pages with them. I doubt though that you can convert just any old PSD image to html; it has to be one that already has an html template stored in it.

So no, I don't believe that gimp can do exactly what photshop can, although as sycamorex mentioned you can do some of the foundational steps, image slicing and build image maps. I see that there's also an export choice for "html table", though I don't know exactly what that entails.

So I say get yourself a true html editor and use that to build your pages. You can use the gimp to create the images that go in it, if needed.

What you are looking for is a program like Adobe's "Dreamweaver" where you can set up your page on a GUI by adding tables, pictures etc. and in the back it creates your HTML and CSS.

I've been trying a lot of opensource applications for this task but came up with no real solution.
As DtH said with the available you still need to know what you are doing. At least you need to understand how HTML works with CSS, where you need to put the files and how you get your raw material (pictures) properly formatted.

What you are looking for is something like:

Kompozer at kompozer.net
Bluefish at bluefish.openoffice.nl

I personally use:
Scite as an editor (I do write my code by hand - most of it)
QFtp as my FTP tool to up/download files to the server

Kompozer may do what you describe and it features it's own FTP client.

Yes, I've used Kompozer. Is Bluefish the successor to Quanta? Used that too.

I know what Dreamweaver is (have it installed), but what I really wanted to do was to simply DRAW the page, and get the software to generate HTML and CSS. I doubt that Dreamweaver and Photoshop WITH the convertor plugin are the same thing
