Do not prevent generation of CSS3 styles for layers. When creating the PSD file use ‘Shapes’, 'Layer masks' and 'Clipping masks' extensively. At the same time, use only those layer styles which can be converted into CSS3 (all the styles, except: ‘Satin’, ‘Bevel & Emboss’, ‘Pattern Overlay’). Do not rasterize layers!
Mark certain layers with tags (hints) according to the PSD to HTML documentation. To convert Photoshop layer into a link, input form, list, table, etc you should mark it with a specific PSD to HTML tag.
Group layers logically. Some inexperienced web designers do not maintain good layers structure in PSD template. Professional web designers always unite layers logically into Photoshop layer groups and thus maintain strict structure in a PSD template. We recommend to unite all layers into logical groups (like header, content, footer, columns, etc.). It will help the service to create correct HTML document structure from your PSD design.
Merge layers of one image into one layer. Usually designers use several layers to represent one image (for example, logo or background may easily consist of 5-10 layers). Remember, that each visible Photoshop layer will be converted into a distinct HTML element. Usually, you don’t want to have 5-10 CSS layers to represent one image in your HTML markup. Put these layers into a distinct group and mark that group with a #merge tag. Another way to achieve same result is to convert these layers into a single Smart Object.
