Why convert PSD to HTML? Some web designers create websites in CSS files. CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. This is a technique of designing web pages that allow changes to be made on all the web pages just by changing some code in one file. Web designers use PSD file formats to store these web pages. However, it is not possible to use these in the format that they are saved in along with HTML code, the generally accepted code for web site design.
When a web designer receives a CD containing PSD images he or she needs to convert them to HTML to use them on web pages or to edit the images. This can easily be done using the program that was used to create the PSD, which is Adobe Photoshop. The.PSD file extension is used with Photoshop. So, to convert a PSD to HTML one can do one of three things, use Adobe Photoshop to convert the file to another format, use a PSD converter or hire a professional to hard code the PSD to HTML code(a web page or web pages).
Many graphic web designers design web pages and save them as PSD files. Because this type of file opens with a very expensive software called Adobe Photoshop and because this type of file is becoming increasingly popular many software programmers have developed software that can open and work with PSD file extensions. There are a few less expensive programs that are compatible with PSD files.
Using these programs web designers can buy PSD template files and work around them in their graphic programs then integrate the images into HTML by embedding them as images in the code of their site.
However, not everyone is conversant with working with images in Photoshop or the other software that can open and alter PSD files. They need to hire professionals who can convert PSD to HTML code for them. These professionals will use the exact technique as mentioned earlier. They will use Photoshop or its compatible software, slice the images and save them as JPEG or GIF images and integrate the images in the HTML.
Entire web templates are available in PSD formats. These can be used as it or they can be opened in imaging software and reworked to suit the theme of the site being developed. It is possible to change the size of the images in the PSD or change the background even change the images as well to entirely different images.
Txt boxes can be placed in layers and buttons can be added or removed from the PSD template then the PSD to HTML or PSD to CSS conversion is carried out by hard coding the image to fit into HTML frames or layers. If a webmaster is proficient with working with imaging software it is no problem but if not then the job will have to be outsourced to some contractor such as a freelance professional who can do a great job converting PSD to HTML and producing a quality website in the bargain.
