Converting a Photoshop File to a Wordpress Theme by Sergio and Krystal


Creating a Wordpress theme from a Photoshop File

So you've asked your designer friend to help you with a website and you plan to use Wordpress for the final site. They give you a Photoshop file with the homepage. It is just what you wanted but ...... how do you make a Wordpress theme out of it? Krystal has designed a new site for the User Group in Photoshop. She will discuss the design process for creating web sites in Photoshop and then hand the file over to Sergio, who will be converting it to a Wordpress theme live during the meeting. He'll explain the process and take your questions while he shows you how to create the CSS and build sub pages true to the main look of the site.
