One of the best ways to design a website is to have a Photoshop mockup which can be easily manipulated according to the needs and demands of the clients. Designers can show these Photoshop mockups to their clients, and can alter the design easily and quickly as per the requirements of the client.
When the client is satisfied with a particular design, the designer just needs to convert it into a finely coded HTML/CSS version which can be read by the Internet Browsers. This approach of designing the PSD first and then converting it into HTML/CSS, is very efficient and less time consuming
In this article, I have tried to collect some of the most well-written, easy to understand and elaborate tutorials for you to learn and master the skills of PSD to HTML/CSS conversion. Every tutorial can give you something new to learn. The more you read, the better you can boost your skills.
If you are an absolute beginner, then you can go for the easy ones first and then go for the more advanced tutorials. If you are already experienced with the process, and want to know even more, then the advanced tutorials are for you. For many learners, video tutorials prove to be more interesting and engaging, so I couldn’t stop adding some video tutorials too.
