What looks better? If I wanted to design a site for an office, say someone wanted a desk looking down from the top. Is it better to make the entire thing in photoshop or just go download a really nice high res photo of a desk with the computer already on it and the coffe cup, and then maybe you just add a notepad in photoshop, throw in some nav and a content area and presto, you have a realistic looking site.
Or should you learn how to make the desk and puter and coffee cup in photoshop, follow a tut for a thumb drive or something and make the entire thing in photoshop?
The thing is that I have an idea for a site, But I needed to figure out how to make stiched leather in photoshop and was having a lot of trouble. My skills are mabye intermediate beginner at best. So I thought, why not just find a complete photo and build my content area into the photo? For some reason, I think making the entire thing in photoshop would be better, but then you can chop up any photo to add layers to make it workable.
