PSDtoHTML is a buzz word when it comes to website designing. It is not a rocket science but a way to design websites which helps to give better effects.
Initially designers used to design website directly into HTML as per the client’s requirements but now the first work is to design a layout, it is usually done in Photoshop with PSD extension. Once the layout is created it is delivered to the HTML designer who starts coding as per the PSD. He cuts small slices from PSD and use that as background of menus, site’s Background etc instead of just using colors. Using only colors to create background cannot give that effect which you can achieve by using slices from PSD. But as slices are small, they are repeated to form the required area.
Many companies are there in the web industry which do PSDtoHTML conversion on massive scale. But finding the best is always a challenge.
Let me tell you my story of getting a website layout converted into HTML for Bigcommerce platform in which I have given a review of PSDCenter a PSD to HTML slicing company.
I needed a website to be designed and I was having the PSD layout ready with me. Thus I was looking for a reputable company to do the PSD to HTML conversion. It was to be developed on Bigcommerce platform so I called them support team to see who would be a good company to help me with my PSD conversion.
They said PSDCenter is a great company that can help you with your conversion. They actually specialize in this service. They currently have 5 top selling responsive ecommerce themes in the Bigcommerce theme store! So they are not an inexperienced company when it comes to working with the platform.
I was super excited because I needed this project done right. I was not looking for the cheapest service; I was looking for someone that will get this done properly. There prices were actually very affordable.
Here is my experience:
1. I submitted my design files
After I submitted my design files they reached out to me in 3 hours explaining some issues with my design that it was not compatible with Bigcommerce and suggested alternative solutions with plugins or design modifications. I am not the expert when it comes to this platform so it was nice that they were able to come to me with this information early in the PSD conversion.
2. Development Started
They told me that the project would be completed in 10 business days. I believe this is a fair amount of time due to the complexity of my project. Within two days they sent me an update showing me that my PSD’s were converted to HTML and that they were going to start integrating it into the Bigcommerce platform. I gave them my login credentials and they started plugging away. The most exciting part was that I was able to see progress on my store every single day until completion.
3. Project Completion
Once the project was completed they helped me point my domain correctly to the platform so the website goes live. I did a QA of the work and the website rendered very well. I was very pleased with the work. I found a couple of bugs but I sent in an email through the ticketing system and everything was solved by the next day. Fast turnaround and response time by PSDCenter which was awesome. They told me that they will support me on my project for the next 30 days if I have any issues.
PSDCenter does a great job on PSD to HTML conversions for the Bigcommerce platform and I highly recommend them. They are affordable, responsive, and dependable. This is what I needed to make sure that my project was delivered without any problems. You should try them out for your PSD to HTML conversion Bigcommerce conversions!
