The web development industry is going through a dynamic phase, where responsive design has become the latest trend-setter as W3C has officially recommended HTML5 as the latest HTML standard that came after a decade or more. And along with the birth of HTML5, a new level of Cascading Style Sheets- CSS3 has also come out, which eventually lets you make a responsive website using the ‘Media Queries’.

However, if you are a beginner or on an intermediate level, it’s quite likely you won’t be having any expertise in designing websites using HTML5 and CSS3. And that’s what prompted us to come with a definitive guide on PSD to HTML5 conversion, where you would learn the conversion technique in 5 easy steps. We’ll also tell you about some of the best resources available on the Internet, from where you can get the in-depth knowledge about the conversion process.

Let’s begin with our 5 step PSD to HTML5 Conversion process, where we’d cover all the things that are essential.

Step 1: A PSD Design

Since you’d be converting a PSD design into an HTML5 template, we assume you have your PSD with you right now. Also, there are certain points listed below that you may need to know and implement in your PSDs (if required) to ease up the work and save your time.

Clear Understanding:- Before you begin to design or if you have already made it then you must ensure that you have a clear understanding of the project. This will help you come out with an eye catching design that would have all the elements, like; Header, Navigation Bar, Footer, Sidebar, etc., placed in a sequential order.

Photoshop Layers:- A PSD design should be made in Photoshop Layers, as it will help you select and pick appropriate things at the appropriate times without using the Photoshop slice tool.
