Creating a website in Comipo

Creating a website in Manga Maker Comipo is almost like creating it in Photoshop. That means the program is only responsible for creating the image of the future design. Everything else must be done in other programs and requires skills and knowledge of HTML and CSS.

Let's see an example shown below:

It is important to choose "Selected Layers" in "Exporting Area". If you need transparency, the format should be set to "PNG", and do not forget to check "Make page background transparent". It is also important to remember the value of "Output Size" - all the pictures should be exported in the same resolution.

You can start writing code, when images are collected in one directory. For example, the cherry branch on top of the stars can be displayed by the following code:

	<style type="text/css">
		#starsDiv {
			width: 100%;
			min-height: 100%;
			background: url("pic/Stars.png") repeat-x;

		#sakuraDiv {
			padding-left: 250px;
			width: 100%;
			min-height: 100%;
			background: url("pic/SakuraBranch.png") no-repeat;	
	<div id="starsDiv">
		<div id="sakuraDiv">
