Hi,

I’m just wondering, how many developers and designers on themeforest do their design in the code. I’m talking no photoshop/illustrator/inkscape/gimp unless you need to create a graphic/icon that requires it. How do you do your design?

I always do both.

Have a PSD to get the ideas from my head into pixels/test coloring, then go to code for details. 100% of the time the original PSD is different from the coded version – but it gives me a decent starting point.

Both.

I will not start coding untill there’s something that looks at least 80% decent in Photoshop.

As soon as there’s a snag, or something that bothers me visually, its back to photoshop to solve it without having to recode and waste time.

I make a lot of screenshots and open them in photoshop, and that offers me the opportunity to try and solve small problems quickly ad try out new things.

Both. I use Ps for a jumping off point to rough out some ideas, and a logo, then the rest is designed in the browser.

Both for me as well. I do the home page in Photoshop and sometimes a basic sub-page concept. I make a lot of changes in the browser.
