We created Web Preflight as our internal tool to speed up validation of Photoshop web designs for issues that routinely come up during web development. Now it is available to the public as a free online service that checks Photoshop web designs for file organization, spelling, size matching target devices, color and web typography.

When comparing Photoshop and InDesign as web design tools, we have to think back to their history. InDesign was meant to offer same multi-page layout and type controls. Over time, it provided web-friendly HTML and CSS export. Photoshop was an image editing software, even as it added typography, vector objects and web-friendly color space and export.

Some time ago, we completed a beta version of responsive site and turned it over to agency’s client for review.  The client came back with a number of issues, all centered around font and image sizes that were apparently not to spec for one of responsive states.  Naturally, we were concerned as this indicated a significant lapse in our QA process.  Upon closer look there was nothing to resolve, as our work was a pixel-match to Photoshop files provided by the agency; the mystery deepened, as there were clearly issues on the client’s side which we were not seeing.
