Designed for high-transaction, sophisticated enterprise WCMS and ecommerce environments, PSD2HTML features server-side image optimization that ensures fast page-load on every browser and mobile device
Today, more than ever before, a brand’s design team is focused on ensuring brand continuity in an omni-channel context: the website design identity must closely match and reinforce the design language used across ads, direct mail, social media, and even events. Perhaps this explains why Photoshop is still so popular among design teams who create the artwork that forms the basis of a website redesign or update: it’s the tool used to create artwork for all channels. What we often see with enterprise businesses is the internal design team (or, possibly, an external design/branding agency) delivering finished artwork to the web team in Photoshop PSD format. Nine times out ten, it is not just one .PSD file that is delivered, but three PSDs for the various layouts: desktop, tablet and mobile.
The net effect of this is that the website implementation team responsible for UX and backend assets of a WCMS is faced with a tsunami of PSDs that need to be converted to HTML/CSS/images. It’s a costly and time-consuming task. With that in mind, Trilibis has developed software that automates PSD to HTML conversion process. Intended for use in batch mode on a server, PSD2HTML represents the natural evolution of multi-PSD to HTML conversion tools for high-transaction, sophisticated enterprise WCMS and ecommerce environments.
PSD2HTML: how it works
Trilibis PSD2HTML is designed for use with the leading WCMS products, and runs as an executable on your WCMS server. Using PSD2HTML, you can completely automate the process of converting multiple complex PSD files to HTML/CSS/image files. Just load the PSD files and then let PSD2HTML generate all the web files needed to ensure a high-fidelity experience for desktop, tablet and mobile clients. As part of your pre-flight testing, you can use the built-in emulator, which provides pixel-perfect renditions of any page on dozens of browsers and devices.
Some other notable features and benefits include:
• server-side image optimization to reduce payload
• accelerated page-load performance for any client/device
• reduction of front-end development time by up to 50 percent
• support for RESS responsive web design.
