A PSD file or an Adobe Photoshop image which has been created and saved in the PSD (Photoshop) format is basically the origin of a website, and sometimes a complex thing to deal with. A web designer gives birth to this origin of a website by layering the design and saving it in PSD formats. Afterward a webmaster jiggles around with each and every part of the design by slicing and chopping it, in order to mould a fascinating site on the web. Nevertheless, this is not the destination of a PSD file. Subsequently, the slices of the design should be commanded so as to make them appear on the web. The major commander that does this is ‘HTML’ (Hypertext Markup Language), which is the heart and soul of web.
