I’ve recently moved servers on some of my websites and this has prompted me into a well-overdue redesign on some of them. This has been great. On one hand it’s been a lot of work, but on the flip side, I always love a challenge and I’ve been wanting to turn some of my PSD (Photoshop Image Files) into usable HTML websites. So for the last few days I’ve knuckled down and with a lot of trial and error, I’ve managed to create something I’m very pleased with. Whilst I have a pretty good understanding of Photoshop CS3, Dreamweaver CS3, HTML, CSS and sliced images in tables etc, there’s always a new problem raising it’s ugly head – and in a kind of sadistic, twisted way, I kinda love that challenge.
Don’t get me wrong, I do surf around for help when I get stuck, but I love trying to accomplish everything from scratch. It’s not a stubborn thing, oh no, for me it’s the only way this stuff really sinks in.
I’ll get round to making a tutorial of how I did this so anyone can have a crack at it if this is something that interests you? So in answer to my own title – "PSD to HTML – How Hard Can It Be" – Pretty Bloody Hard Actually – but oh so rewarding. More to follow soon.
