Slice PSD Design
Designers initiate the conversion process by slicing the PSD file into multiple pieces while ensuring every detail has various layers. The actual reason to do this is to quickly make the page load as a single design file takes much time to download.
While slicing design files, professionals get different slicing options: standard, fixed aspect ratio, slice from guides, or fixed size. Use the ‘Save for the Web’ option to save your sliced files. Designers keep the sliced design in the related directory.
The next step that professionals go through is directory creation. They create the necessary directory for managing their data conveniently and also in an organized way. One needs to complete these required directories.

– Create a folder within the main folder for style sheets or CSS file and name it as ‘Styles.’
Now professionals proceed to create HTML pages from top to bottom. Be it Amaya, Dreamweaver, or Komposer; one can use any of these options for creating HTML pages. Designers create a new file in Dreamweaver software and then save it as index.html in the main folder.
Now professionals create a style file that provides an HTML page for all necessary information related to features such as background colour, font size, image position, fieldset, etc.
However, to create the file in Dreamweaver, they save a new file in the CSS folder as styles.css.
Your CSS style sheet needs to link with the HTML page with the use of a link tag.
Moreover, make sure you enter the page name. It’s necessary to provide an appropriate link in the ‘href’ tag. Now it’s time for professionals to work with the style sheet by defining the wrapper and the Class.

However, JQuery serves as a library that can organize the DOM and includes some great functionality to help designers create dynamic and impeccable layouts.
