Hi,

I usually design in photoshop as I’m more familiar with it. And I find it complicated to design in code.

I’ve seen there are PSD website templates for sale and HTML/etc. website templates for sale. What type of people buy each? I’m wondering if someone could buy a ready made HTML template, why would they bother with a PSD file? A PSD is easier to edit. But then how do they go by turning that into a website?

Hello cherisedenise,
PSD Themes are sold quite less compared to HTML themes as it is more work for the buyer to develop from PSD to HTML. WP themes are even more easier for the buyers to edit. So the price range is also similar to this as PSD themes are cheaper and WP themes are sold in high prices.

Cheers

That’s great information, thanks. But my question then is, why would users bother with PSDs? I like designing and using them, but I want to make sure I’m designing something that users will want.

There are many users who will like to buy the PSD and hire a coder to convert that into an HTML or custom WordPress website as well.

A buyer might have their own CMS they want to develop it in. Quite often many PSD designers can’t code it so buyers have to wait for someone else to partner with them and it is in their interests just to buy the PSD and do it themselves.

If it is sales you are after go with HTML or WP
