Types of Web Templates
Popular forms of website templates are PSD (Photoshop) and HTML (web page) formats. PSD web templates might or might not be sliced and ready for you to add your text to. PSD source file templates come in handy when you want to make drastic customizations (changing out images and navigational menus) to the website template. You will need a copy of Photoshop to make changes and also know how to slice images into html documents. This is also called coding the web template. Obviously PSD web templates require more than basic web design experience.
HTML format web templates are already in html format and consist of web pages and graphic images. Depending on how the web template is set up you might be able to easily change out a few images. Customization is limited on HTML templates. HTML templates are very easy for beginning Webmasters because you simply add your text to a web template and you have a professional website.
When choosing between PSD and HTML web templates take into consideration your web design skills. Whether you choose PSD or HTML web templates you should do an Internet search for free templates so that you can test out your skills on how to use web templates before you commit to a web template purchase.
