Preparing Images

1. Define site directory and sub-folders.

  • Create the site folder that will include all the files related to the site.
  • Create three sub-folders: Assets (final edited media), Original (original images you start with), Library (PSD files, style files, scripts etc.)

2. Place the images you will use as base for your site under the sub-folder Original

3. Prepare Assets for the Web: Size + Optimization
