Portfolio of the automatic PSD to HTML conversion service has been updated. We make updates in the PSD converter quite often, but portfolio is not updated after the each change made. Today we reconverted all the portfolio items with the latest version of PSD to XHTML online converter. So, you can check out again what results you may have after converting PSD to CSS with our service.
Some parts of PSD to CSS service's documentation were reworked. New information was added and old information was removed.
Step by step guide on PSD template preparation was updated. Number of guide's items was reduced from 7 to only 4. Using PSD to HTML service became much more easier. Create own website is quite simple now.
Recommendations concerning PSD file preparation were updated. For instance, we recommend you to use non-destructive methods for the design alteration. Instead of rasterizing layers with effects convert them into Smart Objects. Also, use Smart Objects to unite several layers of one image (for example, for logo, background, etc..).
Automatic PSD to CSS conversion service has got a new feature. Now, not only screenshot of the converted web site is available for preview, but you can also check out resulting HTML web layout! So, besides reviewing the visual result of PSD to HTML conversion you will be able to evaluate HTML layout itself. It will help you to avoid such situations as:
- Text layer was converted into image. This usually happens because text layer uses font that is not standard for web, i.e. such a font that most probably is not installed on the computer of a person who is going to view your web site. Change the layer's font to the standard one, like: Arial, Verdana, Tahoma, Times New Roman, Georgia, Palatino Linotype, Helvetica. After that CSS layout will contain text, not an image.
- Layers are grouped in a way you do not like. If layers in the PSD template are not grouped enough then PSD to HTML service tries to automatically group layers into rows and columns. Sometimes it may be done in a wrong way. To avoid it we recommend to group layers in PSD template logically. Tend to create layer groups for header, footer, main content and other rows and columns of elements. Also, never divide all layers into group of all texts and group of all images. It will help PSD to CSS conversion service to divide template into proper div blocks.
After uploading your PSD template evaluate the conversion result. If something has gone in a wrong way then update your PSD design properly an upload it again. Proceed with payment only if conversion result satisfies you. We hope this new feature of PSD to HTML service will help you to get better conversion results. Now, to create a web site is very easy and is almost free!
