PSD to HTML Guidelines

Design File Guidelines

To help us cut and code your design, please follow the guidelines when creating your PSD, TIFF or PNG file:

  • Files must use the RGB color scheme. If the design we receive uses a CMYK color scheme, we will convert it to RGB. Colors may differ from the original design. We will confirm the change with you.

  • Files must contain layers.

  • The site design must comply to current web standards. The file should be made with a resolution at 72dpi. The maximum width of the content area should not exceed 1024px.

  • Please do not flatten text layers. If text layers are flattened, please let us know the font style and size that should be used in the placeholder.

  • Text cannot be made with visual effects such as gradients and shadows.

  • Please group corresponding layers together. For example, background images, heading, main content and footer.

  • Rasterize layers with non-web safe fonts. Special fonts will be images in your website.

  • All stock photography, icons and images must have valid licenses for use. We recommend images at iStockphoto. Images that are part of the PSD are the responsbility of the client. A valid license or permission of use must be obtained.
