What does it mean to convert PSD to WordPress?
PSD is an abbreviation of Photoshop Design. Photoshop is the software that most designers and developers use when creating websites and apps. PSD to WordPress refers to the process of converting a design file from for example Figma or Photoshop, to a functioning WordPress theme.
How does converting PSD to WordPress work?
You’ll first have to cut the PSD file, after which you’ll encode the file, creating a WordPress template in index.html and adding tags. This process is complex if you do not have any experience in coding. We therefore recommend hiring a professional developer to do the heavy lifting.
We can help you create fully functional and responsive WordPress pages that are based on your PSD file. Below, we’ll describe how we can help you do this in greater detail.
Cut the PSD file
The first thing we do when making a conversion from PSD to WordPress is to cut the PSD file. This means that we will divide the file into several smaller files, which reduces it in size and converts the files into a web-friendly format. So you can’t create a theme from one design file.
This process is usually performed via Adobe Photoshop or similar editing software. There, select the “Bit tool” under “Crop” and hold down the left mouse button while dragging the arrow over the area you want to segment. Regardless of which program you’ll use, you should get high quality image files.
Encode the files
Once we have cut the PSD file, we will help you transform the files to a single zip file. In the top folder we will then find three sub folders; css, font and js. Those folders contain so-called responsive web design. After that we need to encode the files in these folders which in turn means that we will convert the PSD portion of the code to HTML code instead.
Create a WordPress template in index.html
After converting PSD to HTML, we will divide these files into several php files according to the file structure that fits the theme you have chosen to use in WordPress. Each template consists of a certain number of php and other program files such as style.css, sidebar.php, 404.php, index.php, footer.php and so on.
Finally, we’ll make your custom theme in WordPress by adding tags to the template. These tags will give your theme custom features which will fit nicely for your particular template. Tags are a useful way to gather related information so visitors can find your site in an easy manner..
How much does it cost to hire a developer to convert PSD to WordPress?
The cost for a developer to help you convert PSD to WordPress usually varies depending on how multifaceted the project is. By that statement, we mean that the number of pages on your new website determines how complex, and in turn how time consuming the project becomes for us.

Frequently asked questions about converting PSD to WordPress
For those of you who are new to coding, the information we have given you about PSD to WordPress conversions may sound complicated, perhaps even confusing. Therefore, we strongly believe that you have questions and/or concerns.
Below you will find answers to the most common questions regarding how you’ll transform a PDF file to a functional WordPress website. And with a little luck, perhaps we’ll answer all of your questions.
Is it difficult to convert PSD to HTML?
It is difficult to start coding if you don’t have a general idea regarding what the final template will look like. Our best tip is for you to experiment a bit first in Photoshop until you have come up with a design you are happy with. After that, you can start the coding process.
How long does it take to convert PSD to HTML?
Some companies claim that they can complete the process of converting PSD to HTML in a couple of hours. But since the final template should be pixel-perfect, it is not possible to complete the transformation in such a short timespan. Professional developers need at least 8 hours.
Anything less than that, and the end quality of the project suffers.
Is PSD an open format?
No, you can only open PSD-files in dedicated apps that recognize that particular format. While other formats such as PNG, JPG and BMP can be opened in almost any image editing software, PSD is usually harder to open. However, if you do not have Photoshop, there are other options for you.
Gimp and PhotoScape X are two competent alternatives, but most people prefer Photothop even though the price tag is a bit steep.

Do PSD to WordPress conversions end up in a responsive theme?
