We are looking  for a automized tool which quickly does html slicing (conversion of psd into html web design).

Google led us to 2 tools .. htmlbutcher and sitegrinder.

Can experts guide us on this....... which is one is good (if not above of the two ..any other tool).
Thanks in advance

You also might investigate Adobe Fireworks.  They've improved their slicing no only export images, but correlated HTML/CSS output as well.  Fireworks comes with the Creative Suite web packages, so if you're due for a Photoshop upgrade, you could probably get it at the same time relatively inexpensively.

You can slice to HTML in both Photoshop and Fireworks. But you will find that Sitegrinder is a lot cheaper than both of those peices of software:


There is an evaluation period available, and does code XHTML, CSS W3C compliant code.

Sitegrinder is a photoshop plug-in, not standalone.

Is Sitgrinder good at converting all sorts of psd's ? I heard its only good at structured columnar designs(2,3 columnar) and its not good at designs where there are lot of curves etc ... is this true ?

You're slicing into squares and rectangles, I'm not sure I get your point.

Adobe image ready is pretty quick if you make the image into 1 slice then have it auto devide it into how every many pieces you want.

I am the HTMLButcher author, I can say for sure that I created this tool because of lots frustration when trying to slice pages in Photoshop. I even made a page explaining this on HTMLButcher's page, maybe to relieve all my stress with it ;)

I sliced about 30 sites with it until now, and I can say it is painless and even fun to do it with HTMLButcher.

Of course I am biased, but try the demo and follow the tutorial, I am eager to anwser any question about it on my email that is on the Contact page.
