    Hi, I'd like to use vector icons/psd buttons on my website. How do you guys do that?

    you have to publish them to a format that is web viewable.

    I optimize and publish for web in photoshop usually as png, or gif if the image doesn't need to be so high quality

    Say for example instead of "Home" or "Showcase" or "Extend", I'd like images or icons in place of the words in the Pages/Tabs section - what do I do?

    Or say an icon beside my Category sidebar for each category - how do I do that?

    Would be completely lovely if anyone could help.

    P.S: Mods if you can't answer my question fully, pointing me to a resource page would be greatly appreciated as well.

    @RVoodoo: Thank you so much for your input. I have rephrased my question. Wonder if you could still kindly help me out here. :)

    well a simple icon link looks like:

    <a href="http://yourlink.com"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/yourimage.png" alt="link" /></a>

    that uses an image (saved in the images folder in your theme) as a link

    If you want to actually use images in your WP generated menu, its a bit harder.
