I know for whatever reason teamtreehouse feel that this is not an important part and thats why is not in their tracks but it's extremely usefull!!! It's a shame that this great site school don't have something so essential !! Every startup and every company wants people to be able to translate PSD into html pixel perfect so why aren't we learning that? I know there's photoshop and illustrator videos but if we paying for knowledge why you guys holding back?

There's a blog about this but it just seems like it's a personal choice not a valid reason to not post it on the site. I know alot of people are saying google it or youtube it or go to linda or tutsplus... but if I love the format of learning here why do I have to go and pay someone else or watch a bull$hit video instead of here!!!

That like saying I'm only teaching you guys this stuff because I dont think PSD to HTML is important to me.. I know teamtreehouse is looking to the future but what about now? Knowing every single job post that is looking for web designer or developer wants you to be able to translate designs already made to html...

here's the blog link which it's just an excuse http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/psd-to-html-is-dead

The blog you linked gives very good reasons why this technique should not be used today, it's not an excuse. "RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN" is the most important reason I'd say. Please read more about it and watch some Teehouse videos on this topic.

I'm a graphic designer whos know delving into HTML/CSS and more. I know look at websites in a totally different way and instead of WYSIWYG editors or creating websites with sliced PSD's everywhere you get much more fluid responsive websites.

Theres no need to really do PSD to HTML, unless your just taking snipets here and there, but then you should just create the items stand alone such as logo's etc.
