This PSD file is a combination output of many common native render bugs in Photoshop. Because each environment has individual support for objects, the output can sometimes look very different depending on the situation and your project requirements.
Many environments render elements and effects in unexpected ways, this PSD is a great tool for testing how your target project handles each element along with layer effects.
IMPORTANT: Test this PSD in each environment and various browsers; to note the difference in output - apply corrections as required.
Photoshop vs. HTML Rendering
Photoshop and HTML are not the same. Photoshop is a single-emulated environment – meaning you can only use Photoshop to view/use Photoshop. Where HTML is a multi-emulated environment – meaning any browser and device can render HTML any way it likes.
IMPORTANT: Different versions of the same browser or device often render very differently also.
This makes HTML the
Wild West when it comes to rendering equally on all devices –
its virtually impossible. You must have a target range of devices and browsers that you support, then add secondary support for others after.
Testing the PSD
Use Layers views to see the code translation of each layer, or use Exports view to see the output of the document. This PSD file will show an image of the Photoshop layer vs. the environment output object.
Photoshop is visually perfect when rendering and uses your computer Graphics Card for additional visual features. Not all environments support native GPU, making it impossible to
perfectly map elements.
SOLUTION: Test, test, test!
Using Layers View
Select any shape element in the PSD, then select your desired view to see the code render of your shape.
Using Exports View
Export the PSD in your required environment to see how shapes are rendered in your output.
