PSD To Joomla

Creation of the psd layout: The first step to converting your psd to to Joomla is to begin with an awesome psd layout. If you are a great designer, then step should be easy enough with Photoshop. But for those who don’t have awesome design skills, there are free psd templates online which you can use to create the perfect website.

Splicing the graphics of the psd: Once you have your template you need to splice the pieces of the template to create the background, images and other graphic elements for you page. To splice the psd properly, you need good Photoshop skills to access the various layers and elements of the image and to include in them your website. Remember that certain elements will be included in the CSS file and those elements do not need to be retrieved from the psd.

Designing the HTML to include graphic elements:Once you have the graphical elements ready to go, it’s time to add the major graphics to the website using HTML.Creating the HTML will include creating the logo, creating the menu structure for your new Joomla template.

CSS coding of the template:Once you have finalized the layout using the HTML template then it’s time to build the style sheet which will be applied to the HTML and the website in general. The style sheet will determine heading formats, font formats, hyperlink formats etc. The CSS file is saved in the main folder for easy access and it will determine the format of the final website.

Integration of the design into Joomla:Now that the front end of you new website is complete, you will need to integrate the files into a joomla template. The html, graphics and CSS form the front end of the website and the joomla is the engine which manages the content for the website so it is important that the integration forms a seamless link between the front end and the program.
