There's a reason why our various tutorials on slicing PSDs are consistently among the most popular articles on the Tuts+ Network. Every one of us, at one point or another, has needed to convert a PSD into a working website. The only problem is that, until you've gotten a few projects under your belt, it can be significantly confusing. As editor of Nettuts+, I was asked to prepare a book and video series that details the entire process from start to finish for Rockable Press.
1. What You'll Learn in this Book and Video Series
- Different methods for slicing a PSD.
- Create semantic mark-up, and learn how this HTML relates to the original PSD.

2. Accommodates All Learning Styles
Prefer the written word, perhaps even on your new iPad? If so, the immediately downloadable PDF can be viewed on your computer, or any of your eReaders. On the other hand, if you're more of a visual learner, like myself, and would prefer to have someone "sit next to you," so to speak, through the entire process, I've also included the book in video form, separated into a dozen chapters, where I slowly and succinctly explain each step.
