Convert PSD to WordPress in 5 steps: A Definitive Guide

Picture of Convert PSD to WordPress in 5 steps: A Definitive Guide
Creating a website needs two important things, first an attractive, user-friendly design, second, an efficient and functional website code. Both are incomplete without each other and excelling in both is utmost necessary to create a good website. Creating a good design is a test of creativity which not everyone is born with; coding the design on the other hand requires deep knowledge of PHP, HTML, JavaScript and CSS. Thus most people can create an image PSD of their design but coding it is often a challenge.

For non-programmers, the open source community has gifted WordPress, an open source website building tool and content management system that is highly user friendly and can be used efficiently to create a quality website. But in WordPress also, creating a custom website is not that easy. Therefore to alleviate this problem here we give you 5 concrete steps to convert PSD design to WordPress template.

Step 1: Slicing PSD

The first step in PSD to WordPress process is slicing. Slicing means to cut and divide an image design file into multiple design files each having the different design component of the overall design. This is important because the whole design is not coded in a single image. In a website, multiple images are sewn together seamlessly, in which each component and feature has its own functionality and use.

The slicing is usually done in image editing software and most designers usually prefer Adobe Photoshop or comparable. But in the end the point is to cut the pixel perfect images and this can be performed using any image editing software including Microsoft paint. But,  Adobe Photoshop only  makes the job easier to perform and easier to organize.

Now, most designers make a design using a graphic software that allows layered image creation, again like Photoshop, and create design files that are already divided into different components in its layers. This effectively makes the process of slicing obsolete but still it is important to know how to do it.

Another thing to note here is that even though some features like buttons and embedded images have to cut in entirety as they cannot be created dynamically, other features like solid color background, header and footer color, or solid design features, that can be created dynamically, are not required to be cut in full. It is up to the designer and coder what they want to create dynamically and what not.

Great post, but in reality doing it yourself is beyond the capability of most people reading this, which why they were here! Much better to use a bespoke PSD to HTML and WordPress service like http://www.qualitycodeup.com/ who do everything for you. Works out more cost effective and then you can spend more time working on the ideas for your site and getting visitors etc.,
