First off hi, new to these forums. I'm 20 years old and recently majoring in web programming and design, and I plan on getting into freelance. To be honest I don't think I have a knack for web development, but I do find it interesting and I'm sure with enough practice I will be professional at it.

I can create files on photoshop and illustrator that appear to be templates for a web page, but I have no idea how to make them usable. I think I have to splice them up or something? But I still need to learn how to make the links work, the text into html so I can edit it and create multiple pages from it as a template, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
