If you design for the web, chances are that you edit your images, and you might even design mockups in Photoshop. Some use other services, but Photoshop is usually the go-to program for images and design. In Photoshop CC, they have decided to integrate Cascading Stylesheets in the program natively. It is meant to try and make web designers’ jobs easier. Imagine designing a layout or mockup in Photoshop and then just exporting the css to create a great looking website. I think that is the eventual goal, but they are just getting started with this feature. This is an interesting feature, and in the video below, I show you how to access CSS in Photoshop. I also talk about the pros and cons of this new feature in Photoshop CC. Watch the video below to learn about CSS Styles in Photoshop CC.
Integrating CSS in Photoshop CC is a good concept, but if you are looking for advanced features, you may be a little disappointed. A lot of CSS3 features are missing, and they just haven’t been translated into the integration of this feature. It does show some promise, but they have a long way to go before it is style to style translation of the effects you applied in Photoshop.
My Verdict on CSS Styles in Photoshop CC
Overall, the fact that Adobe tried to add this feature in Photoshop CC shows a good effort. It’s nice that they want to try to make web development easier for everyone, but I think there is still a lot of room for improvement. It is definitely a good start for basic (let me emphasize basic) web development from visual design work.
