2. Organization and Naming Conventions

The above is an example of a single page layout.

Iv’e got all my layers organized into Folders for easy management. And i also have them properly named so that I can easily find them.

The naming also helps in the final stage of slicing. Any future changes of any particular layer will have to be considered in the final html page, because Photoshop/ImageReady automatically generates the proper javascript as you specify with your slices.

You can also ‘Color Code’ each ‘Layer’ for further organization, by simply right clicking (Mac: Shift Click) on a ‘Layer’ (or ‘Layer Set’) and choose a ‘Color’ from the ‘Layer Properties’ dialog. (Color coding a set automatically sets the color code to the Layers within that set.)
