20+ Benefits of PSD-to-HTML/CSS Conversion Services
Nowadays PSD to HTML services are very popular and are used extensively. But no
one would ever exploit them if they were not able to give any benefits. So what
do you get when you hire an external company to convert your designs (i.e., digital
images in Adobe Photoshop *.psd, *.ai, etc. formats) into HTML/CSS code?
Who are the clients?
Before starting discussing benefits themselves it is reasonable to consider in brief
who PSD-to-HTML companies' clients are.
Here are some of them:
- Web design and web development companies, graphic design studios, creative agencies
-- often they are regular clients and build a long-term cooperation;
- Companies which need to develop a piece of custom software -- such customers usually
need to convert graphic designs into templates for content management systems (Drupal,
e-Commerce and shopping carts (osCommerce, X-Cart), corporate blogs
and so on;
- Independent graphic designers, web freelancers -- division of labor could be mutually
beneficial in this case;
- Bloggers, networkers, websites owners -- typically their orders are one-off.
Benefits of using PSD-to-HTML services are somewhat different for each of those
Benefits for companies
For companies cost and organizational benefits are usually the most essential. They
- Access to best-of-breed specialists and best practices -- design slicing and markup
coding require specific skills and knowledge. It is especially true when it comes
to W3C standards compliance, semantic coding, cross-browser compatibility, and other
modern requirements to website markups;
- Cost saving -- is achieved due to a number of reasons, including economies of scale
that is typical for such highly tailored companies as PSD-to-HTML firms;
- Better markup quality -- as a result of the above;
- Time saving;
- Total project turnaround improvement;
- Easy and fast assistance in the periods of overload;
- No need to rent additional office space;
- Better customer satisfaction;
- More efficiency and flexibility in core revenue-producing activities;
- Better honed company's business focus.
Benefits for Web and design professionals
Needless to say that to know the basics of HTML or CSS and to have hands-on experience
and to keep abreast of the latest tendencies is like apples and oranges. So, if
HTML/CSS coding isn't your main focus in web design, then hiring a provider, you
get rid of in-depth study of HTML/HTML5, markup debugging, finding and collecting
CSS3 tricks and tutorials.
Therefore, our list of benefits is continued with:
- No need to bother how to solve different markup problems (for example, overcome
peculiarities of IE, etc) -- that in itself can definitely save some nerves;
- More time and energy for design, customer care, promotion, after all, for recreation;
- More design orders completed;
- As a result, an opportunity to gain more money -- not out of place in these uncertain
Benefits for Web individuals
- Professional look and feel of your website or blog;
- Speed optimized markup -- users and search engines prefer quick websites;
- Cross-browser website -- nobody won't say it looks bad in their favorite browser;
- W3C validity -- your website is WWW Consortium standards compliant, it is like a
prestigious seal of approval;
- Semantic coding -- it helps search engines to understand and rank your web pages
- Authority -- HTML5/CSS3 templates and themes are trendy now.
Of course, the list is not completely comprehensive. But even in that form it evidently
shows that there are enough weighty reasons to use PSD to HTML/CSS conversion companies.
