I have Photoshop 6.0 and want to make my first web page. The program
seems very difficult for beginners, and I'm not satisfied with the
"Help". So I was looking for a tutorial (preferably in PDF) which shows
you step by step to make an easy web page including some text and easy
graphics. Anyone seen any links or published documents?

Google it.

Photoshop, especially Photoshop 6 is not the program for making web
pages. ImageReady, which is included in PS 6 can get you a bit closer
but you need to have a web program or learn some basic HTML, which is
quite easy.

If you're on PC try Arachnophilia which is a free and pretty good web
page creation program. There are others.

Be sure to update to Photoshop 6.0.1.

Believe me Photoshop is not the place to start making webpages, by all
means make graphics you use on the web with it but use a web program to
create your webpages life will seem much sweeter.

JpegSizer is an image resizing utility that includes a web gallery builder
and uploader. It generates thumbnail pages with links to full-size image
pages, complete with text and navigation buttons.

You are having problems because Photoshop is not a program that you use
to make Web pages. It's a bit like saying that you are trying to use
Microsoft Excel to make a 3D animated movie, and you're having trouble.

Use a Web page creation program such as Dreamweaver or Golive or Front
Page to make Web pages.

In PS CS & CS2

File>Automate>Web Photogallery

It's okay and with a bit of html knowledge you can edit the template file to
suit your needs. I create most in dreamweaver but I do use PS CS2 html
engine to automate the gallery pages.

As I said, It is okay but not great.

Certainly, Photoshop is not good for all web pages, since it's not
great for text, cannot do forms, has no FTP ability, etc. but it _is_
a design application (a very good one) and web pages are often designed
- so it seems natural to me for people to want to use it for web
creation. And it seems natural to actually use it for that.

I wrote the SiteGrinder plug-in especially for that purpose, trying to
sensibly leverage Photoshop's design abilities into smart web page
creation (not just slicing or always-graphics pages).

I'd be interested in feedback.

You say that PS is not for web pages and has no FTP ability. What we
don't know is what the OP thinks is a "web page". Quite often I will
do a grouping of photographs, perhaps with some text, and ftp the
result up as a url ending .jpg. I don't call that a web page, but it
is certainly a web site.

The OP may consider this a "web page". After all, it's on the web and
it's a page.

To really answer the OP's question, it's needed to know what he/she
thinks is a "web page". If it's an Adobe Photo Gallery, or a .jpg
accessible by loading a URL, then the comments here may have
discouraged him from doing what can be easily done.
