Responsive Web Design with Adobe Photoshop

https://www.amazon.com/Responsive-Web-Design-Adobe-Photoshop...
For a couple of decades now, designers have used Photoshop to mock up Web page designs. However, that work generally results in a static graphic of the page, which has to be translated by a developer into the components of a Web page: HTML files and Web-compatible image files. Our multi-device world has shown us that this approach to web design, including full-page comps done in Photoshop, is increasingly problematic. Modern web designers are adopting a new approach: creating flexible web pages whose layout can adapt to suit the screen on which they are displayed. This is “Responsive Web Design” [RWD]. Until now, books on designing responsive Web sites have focused on HTML and CSS – in other words, they've been very code-centric, and visual creativity seems to take a back seat. This new book is aimed at the visual Web designer who’s accustomed to working in Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop CC contains many new features that help streamline the process of converting a static page design to a set of components for a responsive web page. Dan Rose is one of the best-known advocates of this new way of working in Photoshop. He’s observed that only a few people are talking about Photoshop for RWD constructively, yet a majority (63% as of his last informal poll) of web designers are using Photoshop for more than simple asset creation. This transition is a pain point for many designers. His new book will balance coverage of conceptual issues (how to fit tools like Photoshop to the design workflow rather than fitting a workflow to the tools) with practical design exercises tailored to help communicate the overall design direction of the page while respecting the needs of the fluid Web. In addition, he will introduce methods for taking HTML back into Photoshop for further refinement.

Step By Step Bootstrap 3: A Quick Guide To Responsive Web Development Using Bootstrap 3

https://www.amazon.com/Step-Bootstrap-Quick-Responsive-Devel...
Learn how to create multi-column layout, navigation bar, carousel, progress bar, popover, form validation and more.Find out how to easily customize Bootstrap to fit your style.Build a responsive website from scratch - step by step. See the end result here: http://bit.ly/p-crslWhy This BookOne of the big challenges in web development is maintaining the site's compatibility across devices and their various display sizes, from desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones. The last thing we want is to have a website that looks good on a desktop but is painful to navigate on a small display, or looks great on a small screen but appears oddly tiny in the center of a large screen.Ideally the site should have the ability to automatically reorganize itself to provide the optimal viewing experience, in accordance with the size of the display. In short, we want our website to be responsive. This is where Bootstrap 3 comes in handy. It makes building responsive websites easier and quicker.Aimed at absolute beginners, this book will not require you to have any experience in HTML, CSS or JQuery. You will learn as you go along. It explains the subject matter in a step by step fashion, with plenty of examples and screenshots to illustrate the points.Formatted specifically for Kindle, this book takes full advantage of what Kindle can do. You can navigate around the book easily and run the examples using the Kindle's browser. Furthermore, all examples are downloadable. You can download, tweak and reuse them on your own project without having to retype everything.Who Should NOT Buy This BookIf you are able to learn on your own by perusing the online documentation provided by Bootstrap, you do not need this book. Before you open your wallet, check out Bootstrap's official site and give it a go.What you will get from this bookThis book will guide you in transforming a simple HTML page into a responsive one. It will demonstrate how to use Bootstrap's grid system to create a multi-column layout. It will also guide you in creating a navigation bar, different types of menus (with or without dropdowns), buttons, icons, modal and tables.The book will also cover forms and form validations, where you will create a Sign Up page with some validation procedures to examine the data entered and display a warning when appropriate.Needless to say, this book will be incomplete without a lesson on customizing Bootstrap to fit your own style. The book will cover light customization that will illustrate how you can change fonts, colors and background images to make the page your own.Light customization however is good only for minimal changes in the design. To tweak the design further, you will be better off using LESS. Therefore one chapter will be dedicated to demonstrate the customization using LESS.Towards the end of the book, we will throw in some more Bootstrap components that can increase your site's appeal. You will learn about Carousel, Affix, Scrollspy, Tooltip, Popover, Collapse and Progress Bar. Not only you will learn how to display them, you will also utilize some of the controls to make them work.As the last lesson, you will learn how to show or hide certain parts of the page depending on the size of the screen.For absolute beginners, quick introductions to CSS, LESS and how to compile LESS (including Bootstrap's LESS) are provided in the appendices.If you are looking for a step by step guide to responsive web development using Bootstrap 3, you may want to give this book a try.
