Proper Site Layout Design

Posted by marmara on February 1, 2017

Call layers according to their content is no secret that many designers ignore such procedure as to rename layers. And for good reason. In this situation, the losers are all participants in the project. Designer loses credibility and respect from colleagues, coder spends excessive force to work with the layout, the project manager does not fit into the timeline. Combine the layers that will not be used individually and group those together represent a single element. Here is an example. The company logo, for which the site is created, is made of five layers. To fit on all those layers come together, because logo is inseparable element of design. Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine shines more light on the discussion.

It would be reasonable, if for makeup went layout that contains no layers to be merged. It would also be nice if the designer in advance to group layers that form the image header, and body of the page additional units. It also simplifies the coder. Do not leave blank layout layers created by accident or to solve any problems, as well as hidden layers. The presence of invisible layers knocks coder confused. Should there be an element depicted in such a layer on the page or not? It’s good if the PSD file is attached to a copy of the JPG.

And if not? Then forced to look to the designer or project manager for help, which again leads to a waste of time. If you use specific fonts or rasterize them or attach to the design layout. It is often used in website design typefaces available on your computer coder (which renders it incapable of working with text). Try to be replaced by the layer effects to bitmap counterparts. Layout design of the site must be a static bitmap image. If designer has used in his project the effects of the layer, while cutting the image may change. This is due to the fact that the layer effects applied only to non-transparent pixels, but their number and location may vary the process of preparing the layout for layout. Avoid an effect in the layer in two ways. The first is to perform the procedure Create Layers (based in the shortcut menu, layer effects). After performing the above procedures in the image appear more layers, each responsible for one effect. Simple union of the layers we will achieve results, which are aiming for. The idea of the second way – to keep a separate layer, as a JPG image and paste it into a PSD file. But in my humble opinion – is the way amateurs. I think there are people who can add to this list. I’ll be only too pleased. And finally, I want to reiterate that the work on design has a designer. It it will take much less time and effort than the coder.
