Tips to Easily Import Photoshop PSDs into Storyboard
While it’s already quite simple to import your application’s UI elements from Photoshop into Storyboard, we’ve created a couple of resources that you can refer to while working in Photoshop to make the import into Storyboard even easier. The following quick start reference pages describe the Storyboard application model, how the Photoshop elements map to Storyboard elements, naming conventions, and basic best practices:
We also have a video tutorial available that walks you through the Storyboard naming conventions that you should keep in mind as you plan your design in Photoshop.
Give these resources a quick glance before starting your design process to ensure you understand how you will be using your Photoshop elements in your Storyboard application. Understanding where you are going makes it easier to plan how to get there. Woah. Deep.
We are also working on other short tutorials and simple reference pages to help guide you as you build your embedded application GUIs using Storyboard Suite, so stay tuned for more.
