Encoding a Photoshop Mockup into XHTML & CSS | Blog.SpoonGraphics This post was originally published in 2008 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. Continuing from a recent tutorial, Create a Vibrant Blog Design in Adobe Photoshop, we'll now look at taking the concept and implementing it into an actual webpage constructed in xhtml and css. By exporting the imagery from Photoshop and coding up the page we'll produce a working example of the overall blog design. At the end of the last tutorial, we had created a complete mockup of the front page including overall layout, colour and design, proposed typography and sample content. Now it's time to review the concept and plan out which elements can be created in pure xhtml and css, and which parts require the use of images. The first element to be exported is the large background. The main content area is then exported, making another large selection including the whole centre panel along with the visual effects such as shadow and transparent border effect.
