Convert Illustrator file to HTML or CSS for programming on Ruby?


#1

HI there,

My graphic designer and my programmer are having a communications
snafu, and it’s my job to translate.

The programmer is saying that if there’s a simple conversion method to
take web page designs created in Illustrator and convert them to HTML
or CSS, it will save him about 50% of programming time.

This is good news for everyone, but how best does the conversion
happen?

Thanks for your consideration.

I don’t know of any tool that provides this…

Isn’t this partially what you’re paying your programmer to do anyways?

Export it to Photoshop as a PSD, slice it up from there, then have
your programmer clean up the output and add the dynamic content.

Just make sure you export as CSS. The default (at least in CS 3 or
below) is to export as a tables based layout.
