Welcome again! I think you already know that Angular is a must-have tool for a professional web developer. On the Internet, you can find thousands of ready-made PSD templates for sites that you can install for yourself almost instantly, but you need to know how to put it into action correctly and why the Angular developer needs it. Let’s talk about everything in detail in this article ‘How Angular Development Works for PSD to Angular’. Read on and discover something new!
- Multilayer pattern. Such a structure is needed so that when editing certain parts of the template, it does not affect the state of others. Such a template that is saved in PSD format will support the multilayer structure. All other formats do not have such a function and simply compress graphic objects.
- Each layer must correspond to a certain structural element of the design of the future site – header, menu, navigation, etc.
- Experienced designers usually use homogeneous tones in templates that are similar to each other. This is due to the convenience of displaying them with HTML and CSS.
- Background images should be kept to a minimum for fast site loading and normal page volume (especially important when developing mobile applications).
- Directions in the PSD template play an important role in the site layout process.
- With fonts and inscriptions you need to be careful and prefer traditional ones. If you use a special font, the file with it must be attached to the template.
- PSD template must adhere to the optimal size (width of at least 1000 pixels). If you ignore this rule, the display of the template in the browser may be incorrect. Regarding the height, the size is set from the theme of the template. This is done so that in the future, all the elements of the site fit.
- Always create groups for layers and give them
names. Because you will definitely get confused!
Ideally, the output should be a multi-layered layout, completely ready for layout and coding. Website design in Photoshop has a number of required elements: header; the location of the menu; navigation; color spectrum; fonts, etc.
First, you need to create a simple folder, preferably on the desktop, so as not to lose it. There will be all your files that are included in the site template. Create a folder, call it whatever you like. And then create another folder, and call it ‘images’, I think that everything is clear, all the pictures for your future website will be in this folder. The background image will be the template header with the logo of the site that you need to cut before use. You need to work with the rest of the template using HTML, and CSS will set the styles and sizes. As it was already told in the characteristic of a qualitative template, all parts should be placed on separate layers. Class depictions and sizes are set utilizing the width and height properties. If your template contains any images, you should cut them out and place them in a folder. The file path is indicated in the background-image field through URL.
