Converting a Design Prototype to a WordPress Website

NEW DELHI - Jan. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- In the following blog, we will tell you the best ways to convert your PSD to WordPress using Elementor, or any other website creation platform.

Step 1: Preparation

The first step is to prepare your materials. If you are a Photoshop user, go to the File section and click on the 'Save for Web and Devices' option. A new dialogue box will appear. Now, choose the 2-Up option and you see your image beside the original.

If you compare, you will see a low file size occupying only a minute space in the download storage. Thus, this option enhances the loading time of a page since it keeps the file size, low.

If you ask us, we prefer using PNG 24 as it provides better image quality even when the file is reduced to less MB. Apart from that, it is also quite efficient in handling transparency. Coming to the quality level, we prefer sticking to 40 and 60 values. We don't prefer high values as it tends to make the image-heavy.

For the logos and icons, SVG files are our recommendation. This is because the latest Elementor version permits uploading these files.

Once you are done making these settings, all you are left with is allocating them with a unique name and saving them in a web-ready image destination. But before you go for this step, create a new folder for your images and keep them stacked in order and also create a preset.

Step 2: Translate the Design to Elementor​

The second step to convert the PSD to WordPress template ( is to translate the design to Elementor. For that, you first have to make a single column section and give it a suitable name. Now go to your images, resize them according to your preference, and set the parameters like the scrolling effect, the attachment, the position, and the background overlay. Now go to the style settings, and add this edited version of the image, and set it according to your needs.

Step 3: Repeating the Process

Once you are done with the above steps, you can now save widgets as global. Besides, you can also duplicate sections and save an entire page as templates. What's more? You can avoid recreating these elements all over again.

You can use the Style tab and apply margins, blur, padding, box-shadow, effects, spacing, width, typography, and much more and construct your prototype more effectively. After that, revise through all the steps above, make any corrections if needed, and showcase your final design prototype in WordPress.
