If you’re new to creating website designs using Photoshop, learning to transform those .PSD files into semantic, standards-compliant CSS and HTML files can be a bit intimidating.
After all, there are plenty of great services out there that can slice up and code your files for you. But there are those cases when you may prefer to slice those designs by yourself.
That’s where From Photoshop to HTML: How to Slice Your Designs Like a Pro by Jeffrey Way, editor of Nettuts+, comes in.
In this 145-page book, the entire process of converting a .PSD file into a working website design is covered, in detail, with code examples.
A model site is used to walk readers through the entire process, step-by-step, with a single example. Everything from the basic coding to making your designs cross-browser compatible is covered.
On a daily basis—if you listen closely—screams can be heard around the world from coders unsuccessfully attempting to force a design into position. It’s not just a matter of learning the language; memorization is an easy task. The scream inducing points occur when you view your site in ten different browsers, all of which render your site at different levels of consistency.
The book assumes you have a basic working knowledge of CSS and HTML, as well as a design already created in Photoshop. The design used in the book is simple, but the concepts used to create the design can easily be applied to more complex designs.
