9: Building up a site wireframeBefore you actually dive in to putting the code together for a web site, you will want to sketch out where everything is going to go on your web pages, broadly speaking.

I’ll save the image at 72 dpi, which will allow for faster download time.
Please, please don't say this. Saving the image at 72 dpi does not do anything for download times, it will just update a tag in the header to say "72" instead of whatever. Yes, Photoshop resizes the file when changing dpi but only because it keeps the printed size constant. 72 dpi is still meaningless as an absolute size, a 72 dpi file can be 3Gb or 3 bytes, depending on the actual number of pixels in it. 3000 x 2000 pixels at 300 dpi is exactly the same size as 3000 x 2000 pixels at 72 dpi (keeping all other variables constant).
Sorry for the rant
