So, when are creating projects in Photoshop and you know you’re going to convert it into an HTML file, what can you do to enhance the process?

The most vital aspect is to control your layers. Our tool will effectively see different layers as new elements. This is one of the most powerful aspects of the PSD to HTML conversion process, but it does mean you need to be careful. For instance, different layers can be used to mark different elements, which is great for ensuring your design is translated exactly as intended.

Yet, on the other hand, you need to ensure any complicated elements have their layers merged together, to ensure it comes across as one solid element in the final HTML. Of course, fewer layers also reduces the file space and quickens the conversion time.

Perhaps you are not aware of why HTML is important and why it is vital to use a service that can generate cleanly streamlined HTML scripts. Short for HyperText Markup Language, this is the code that websites use to display their website. It marks (thus the “markup” part of the code) what are headers, footers, links and all the other interactive aspects. In short, a website without HTML would simply be static.

Browsers read the HTML file on any given website to help represent it on the user’s screen. In other words, it’s vital to the user experience and functionality of your website.

In many ways, you can consider PSD and HTML to represent the front and back-end of the website, respectively. While Photoshop files can look amazing, they have no built-in functionality (and certainly not in a way that the internet understands).

HTML, in opposition to this, is all about functionality but it is far from an ideal method of designing fantastic looking websites. Consequently, it is better to use both, building beautiful designs in PSD and letting our conversion tool offer the HTML file to match. Because this conversion process is vital, our tool takes the risk right out of your hands!

Tutorial PSD to HTML

Taking a beautifully crafted PSD file and creating a working, functional website requires a little computer knowledge to get right. If you know how to convert PSD files into HTML, this isn’t a problem. If you don’t know this – then this tutorial is perfect for you.

Converting PSD to HTML can help ensure your websites work properly, look amazing and hold true to your original designs. This tutorial will cover many of the important basics, as well as the steps required to create HTML files that utilise your core PSD elements.

What Are PSD and HTML?

PSD

Before we begin, it’s worth explaining what both PSD and HTML files are. PSD files refer to PhotoShop: the abbreviation stands for PhotoShop document. Photoshop is one of the world’s most popular image editors and design programs. Website designers and artists prefer to work in this, as it gives them the most creative flexibility possible.

HTML

HTML on the other hand, is short for Hyper Text Markup Language. This is, in essence, the language used by web browsers to read websites. Consequently, it is the basic framework that all websites are built from. It uses tags in its files to ‘mark’ key areas, such as headers, navigational links and other website features, for browsers to understand.

So – why don’t we just start designing in HTML? Naturally, websites need to use HTML, but its not possible to create beautiful, elegant visual designs. In photoshop, however, you can try different layouts, colour schemes and other editorial choices with ease.

Once you’ve done this, you can convert the entire file to HTML, where all the graphical elements will be displayed as images. By converting PSD files through this tutorial, you can create HTML files that retain the aesthetic designs that you’ve already created. :

Methods for coding PSD to HTML

  1. Convert Your self
  2. Use automated tools & services
  3. Hire professionals

There’s more than one way to convert a PSD file into HTML, so you’re free to choose the option that works for you.

If you’re confident in your coding skills, you can choose to manually convert the PSD files yourself. If you understand some basic coding and can learn some basic tags – as this tutorial will help to explain – you can create a functional website that uses the designs from your PSD file. Of course, creating a full website will be rather time exhaustive.

The other option, then, is to use automated tools and services that take care of the manual coding for you. This is much quicker and can give you great looking websites much quicker than a manual conversion would. On the other hand, automated processes might not match your final vision perfectly, but you are free to edit and tweak the final document to suit your needs.

Getting Started with PSD to HTML Conversion?

Before you begin, you need a finished PSD file. Once in HTML, you can’t edit any of the visual elements as you would in PhotoShop. In other words, do not start this conversion process until you have the final, approved design for your website.

If you didn’t design the PSD file yourself, it’s often worth checking with the designer to ensure that this is the final website design.

Here, we will go over some the basic elements of the website. These are areas you will need to identify in the PSD design, as these will be key parts of the website and will often need to be tagged and appropriately marked up.

1 Header

Virtually all websites have a header. This is what sits at the top of the website, often with your company or website’s name prominently displayed. It could contain additional elements, such as your company’s logo.

In most cases, the header will appear the same on every page. This creates a consistent feature that users feel comfortable with.

2 Navigation

The navigation is often found in the header of websites, but it’s important enough to deserve its own mention. When people are on your website, they use your navigation to find other pages and move around the site.

This can take the form of links underneath – or as part of – the header, a drop down menu, or a combination of the two. How the navigation is setup depends on your choices. If you have a category pages and further, sub-category pages, you may choose drop down menus for each category.

3 Body

The body refers to the main segment of the page. While pages will share a header and footer, it is the body that is unique to each specific page. Here, you will find text, images and other embedded media.

4 Footer

The footer is similar to the header, in that it appears on every page and should be the same on each. Depending on your needs, the footer can hold information that isn’t important enough for the header or navigation. This can include additional links to less important pages, contact information and legal disclaimers.

5 Background

All websites have a background, otherwise they would just appear white. You will likely find a background – whether its a static colour or image – is a prominent feature of your PSD design. In HTML, the background sits in the back, with all text, media and further elements added ontop as an overlay.

Step 1: Preparing the PSD Document

So, now that you have your design figured out, what else do you need to do with the PSD document? You need to prepare it in a manner that makes the various elements for agreeable with the final HTML design.

Specifically, you slice your layers. In PhotoShop, slicing refers to breaking down a larger, single image into a series of smaller ones. This helps with the final design, as the HTML can more easily load up the smaller images. A singular, larger image will take longer, impacting the final user experience of the live website.

This can be easily done in PhotoShop, using the slicing tool on your layers. PhotoShop normally offers three methods for this and they are listed below

  • Normal slicing offers the most basic way to seperate your images, and the proportions of the ‘cuts’ will be shown as you drag the marker lines.
  • Alternatively, fixed aspect ratio slicing will cut to a required slice, based on values that you enter into the software. This is a great way to ensure that images are broken into even segments, containing the same amount of pixels.
  • As a third option, you can use the “slices from guides” tool. If you choose this, PhotoShop will automatically slice the file using the current guides. However, this will also undo any previous slicing that you have done in the document, so be careful when using this option.
After the PSD document has been sliced, you need to save it, ensuring your changes have been confirmed. At this point, it’s important to choose the “Save For The Web” option.

Create Directories

When coding and converting PSD into HTML, you will need somewhere to draw your vital data – such as the sliced images – from. Technically, these are known as directories but, at this stage, simple folders will suffice. It’s also a good organisational tip, as you can keep all the required files in a self-contained folder as you work.

We recommend creating a main folder, with two further folders inside:

  • An “images folder” which, as the name suggests, will hold all the images that you plan to use on the website. This includes the sliced images, created in the previous step.
  • A “styles” folder that will hold CSS files for style sheets. (CSS stands for cascade style sheeting, a language that determines how your HTML will ultimately be displayed).

Starting With HTML

Now that you have the PSD files organised, along with directory folders for your images and media, we can start working on the HTML pages themselves. First of all, we need to create a basic HTML page.

This can be done in various HTML page building programs – Dreamweaver is perhaps one of the most popular and readily available. For the purposes of this exercise, we will refer to the home page but you will, of course, need HTML pages for every page on your website.

Start by creating a new file and save it as “index.html” in the main folder of your directory.

Alongside this you will need a styles file. This can also be accomplished in Dreamweaver: just save a new file as “styles.css” in your CSS folder. This CSS file is very important, as it informs your HTML pages on the various style elements of the page, including:

  • Your font size and type
  • Background colours
  • Image positioning
  • Margins, fieldset and other data and values.

The CSS file will need to be linked with your HTML page to ensure your chosen style is shown in the final build. To do this, enter the page name in the title tag and use the link tag to create the connection. Just ensure the correct link is shown in the “href” tags.

Starting With CSS

Now that you have the stylesheet created, let’s start working on it. One of the first things you should do is define the Class, as well as the wrapper.

Pro-tip: when saving classes, always create a name that is meaningful and very clear in what it does. This will make it much easier when jumping between your CSS and HTML files.

Open up your PSD file and identify the background colour code. Next, add this to your CSS file in the header.

Next, open up the HTML page - “index.html” in this example – and define the header section. Ensure this is properly tagged and then create the ‘wrapper’. This is done by defining the class as a wrapper.

In your PSD file, ensure that you have properly sliced all of your images. At this point, you need to locate the logo and save it as logo.jpg in your directory: specifically, the images folder. Next, create an anchor tag for a hyperlink that will be displayed on your home page. You can use image tags to add the logo to your HTML, but be sure to select the appropriate class. In this case, it is the “logo” class, which is pretty self-explanatory.

You should also define this in the CSS file as well. Here you need to ensure there is adequate padding the correctly accommodate and position the logo. If you look at the top – as well as from the left – of the logo in PSD, you can see the position information.

So, how can you add this to the CSS? Create a new class and set it to float towards the right. At this point, you can also choose a specific page width. For websites, this is normally 920px (pixels).

Moving to the HTML page, you should create a new section, using the same class name as the CSS header.

Back in the CSS file, you can create a new class that will become the top links for the page. Again, this can be set to float right. You can open your PSD file to gain the measurements for this, as well as any padding on the right. Then, ensure these values are added and declared in the CSS file.

At this point, you should also ensure your style sheet contains the correct data for the background colour of the top link. This is done in a similar fashion to the background colour used earlier. In the HTML page, add a new span tag under the section tag (For the area you want to add a background value to) and give it a class name that matches its counterpart in the CSS.

Assuming that your page has a top link, acquire the text for this from your PSD file and paste it directly into the HTML. This also needs to be done in the CSS, where you need to declare the chosen font type, font size, colour, line size, padding and any other details that you might need. You can also set the hyperlink for the text as well.

When this is done, it’s time to create the navigational menu. To do this, start with an unordered list in the HTML page that details all the pages of the final website. A typical site will have various pages, such as:

  • Home
  • About Us
  • Blog
  • Services
  • Contact Us

There could be much more, of course, so look to your PSD files to ensure you don’t forget about any.

After this, switch to your CSS file and create stylistic attributes for this menu. Just be sure, however, to set text decorations to “none”. If you don’t the CSS file’s default styling will come into effect, showing your links with a blue, underlined font, rather than your chosen preferences.

As always, add margins, padding and float attributes for these menu items. Be sure to add them to each item, as well as choosing and setting the font family for item texts. Again, if you don’t do this, the default will be chosen, which will often go against your design.

Creating A Frame

Now you are familiar with some of the basic HTML concepts, as well as working between your HTML, CSS and PSD files, it’s time to create a basic HTML frame.

This framework is important for providing a basic layout that you can test as you work. It’s vital to test in various web browsers, to ensure your final design is compatible across all possible platforms.

When it comes to making a very basic layout, there are three things you should consider:

  • The design is likely centred, which means it needs to be wrapped in a container. We’ve already started work on wrappers, so centralising this will not be an issue. Likewise, it can be moved around, if needed.
  • As far as the overall design and placement of elements goes, HTML works in blocks, based on horizontal positioning. A block can have more than one column, using
    tags to indicate this. This will allow you to combine different elements and ensure certain aspects appear side by side in the same block.
  • In most designs, the footer – and sometimes the header – will be a different colour. As a result, the background colour needs to be different, so that different browsers can maintain a consistent design when stretching the footer/header. Fortunately, this is also something we’ve already started working on.

Here’s what your basic layout should look like:

[Note: This is from one of the articles, if you want something more unique, feel free to change this]
              
                 
                   <!doctype html>
                    <html>
                    <head>
                      <meta charset="utf-8">
                      <title>Creatif</title>
                      <link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all">
                    </head>
                    <body>
                      <div id="main">
                            <div class="container">
                                <div id="header"> 
                                    Logo/ Menu 
                                </div>
                            <div id="block_feature">
                                  Featured Content
                                </div>
                                <div id="block_content">
                                  Content
                                </div>
                                <div id="footer">
                                  Footer stuff goes in here
                                </div>
                            </div>
                        </div>
                    </body>
                    </html>
                  
              
            

In this case, we’ve broken down the website into a main section and a footer. This allows us to separate the important page-specific content from the more generic footer. You can, of course, also include a header section at the top as well, which we’ll get to in a second.

Both sections are marked appropriately - #main or #footer – to make it clear what they are. Each also has a <div class="container"> section. This is to secure the desired width, as well as to centralise the container. Inside this, we use various <div> tags to separate various elements.

Next, we can add some CSS to go alongside out HTML:

[Again, this is taken from the online guide. I would heavily suggest changing some elements to meet our own graphics/examples. Definitely change the background colours and codes to avoid an obvious duplicate/copied content issue.]

/* ------- HEADER HERE -------*/

              
                 
                   #header {
                      background: green;
                      line-height: 100px;
                      color: #ffffff;
                      text-align: center;
                      font-size: 30px;
                      font-weight: bold;
                    }
                  
              
            

/* ------- MAIN CONTENT HERE -------*/

              
                 
                   main {
                      padding: 50px 0;
                    }
                    main::after {
                      clear: both;
                      display: block;
                      content: "";
                    }
                    #block_feature {
                      float: left;
                      width: 30%;
                      background: blue;
                      color: #ffffff;
                      font-size: 20px;
                      font-weight: bold;
                      text-align: center;
                      height: 300px;
                      padding: 40px 0 0 0;
                    }
                    #block_content {
                      float: right;
                      width: 65%;
                      background: blue;
                      color: #ffffff;
                      font-size: 20px;
                      font-weight: bold;
                      text-align: center;
                      height: 300px;
                      padding: 40px 0 0 0;
                    }

                  
              
            

As you can see, the header, main body and footer are clearly defined. Each has its own background colour, dimensions and sections.

This is a very simple framework which can be used to add elements from your PSD files, ensuring they go into the correct area.

In this particular example, the containers have a 950px width and use an auto margin to keep them centred. We’ve also added a border to the footer. This is so you can see it in any live previews – as it will be hard to distinguish until images are added. When these are introduced, you will want to remove this border, so it doesn’t get in the way of your design.

Adding Background Images

Right, now that we have a basic frame up, let’s import some images from the PSD file. The best place to start is the background.

Since you have access to your PSD files, obtain the background image as a JPG and set it as the background in the HTML. For extra style, you can set it with a radial gradient highlight alongside a 1px slice. This will fill out the right and left sides as the image extends.

  • Pro Tip: Remember to save all your images to the correct directory folder. This will make them easier to find and recall later, if needed.
  • A “styles” folder that will hold CSS files for style sheets. (CSS stands for cascade style sheeting, a language that determines how your HTML will ultimately be displayed).

Adding Basic Elements

At this point, you have a working layout, as well as backgrounds and sliced PSD files. Now, if you know your HTML and have a good editor, you can start to add the various elements.

Remember to take the sliced elements from your PSD file and introduce them as images. Use the correct tags so that buttons, images, media and text are all correctly marked up. It’s recommended that you regularly preview this in various browsers to ensure it is loaded and displayed correctly.

  • Next, we’ll go over some more advanced aspects you need to keep in mind during this process.

Modern Browser Requirements

Now that you understand how the basic HTML process works, it’s time to explore some more advanced options. When designing your pages, there are a few things you should keep in mind that will help your website meet the more specific requirements of modern day web browsing.

This includes:

  • Ensuring your website is search engine friendly, helping with SEO
  • Ensuring your website loads easily
  • Ensuring your website adapts responsively between mobile, tablet and computer devices
Let’s go other each one individually, introducing a few things you can do to help each in area.
SEO Friendly Designs

When it comes to search engines, having clean code and well-tagged HTML is a must. This makes it easier for search engines to read, in turn helping your website succeed with Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO.

Furthermore, you can look into W3C – short for the World Wide Web Consortium - coding standards. This is a recognised standard that is very search engine friendly. However, it is much more advanced and will require more knowledge of HTML and website design.

Alternatively, W3C is one reason to have expert eyes or automated processes look over your files and improve your code in areas you aren’t as confident in.

In addition to this, it’s worth noting that the following two areas – responsive design and loading times – also greatly impact your SEO potential.

option-img
Loading Issues

A page that loads faster will be better received by users. It’s also something that search engines are making more and more important – especially when it comes to mobile browsing.

One key area that often slows down loading is the various media and images included on each page. When someone visits your site, their browser has to make HTTP requests to access your images from the directory. Each request adds a tiny amount of time, but overall it can add up, especially when the file sizes are large.

Do not use images you don’t need and be sure that the images you include are sized correctly. You can also use lossless compression to reduce the size of your pictures, without compromising on the final quality.

option-img
Responsive Design

Thanks to mobile devices, tablets and computers, people view your website on screens of various dimensions. Obviously, a website designed for one will look awful on the others. Responsive design fixes this by adapting the website to the size of the screen.

This requires much more advanced knowledge of HTML and is something saved for experts and highly experienced people.

Alternatively, some websites have different sub domains and pages for mobile sites. This in effect doubles your work effort, as you have to create both a desktop and mobile page, but it lets you build dedicated pages. However, this would also require two PSD files as well. The mobile site would need to be designed from the ground up, alongside your regular site, which significantly adds to your workload.
