Is there an automated solution involving WordPress and Photoshop?
There is, and it is called Divine Elemente, a brand new plugin for WP that is designed to take templates created in Photoshop and integrate them into themes made for WordPress, and in addition to this, these themes carry with them top performance. You’ll find that this is a modern trend in designing websites:
In WP and in Photoshop there isn’t a bit of coding: It is as simple as design a theme, grouping a set of graphics together for it, and publishing it. The theme can be downloaded in PSD, several alterations can be added, and be up and published in moments. With this plugin you can get a PSD template of around 200MB in size loaded up and published in under a minute. The typography is precise in its pixelation, the fonts are custom styled, the stretch is seamless, it has a 960 grid — all as part of its unique benefits and features.
Some examples of WP themes that have been published using the Divine Elemente plugin:

How the plugin works, in a few simple steps
There are a couple of ways to go into a project with the plugin and they rely on what tasks are set for it. As an example, if you are only beginning with theme creation for WordPress using the Divine Elemente prgram, the basic layout would be the best way to start.
- Layout your elements and all the properties that go into it using the Publish Editor.
- Set your WP theme to be published and edit your elements using the frontend of a WP CMS.
- If you are starting with a template that has been made for you, then attempt to set your elements for it in your Publish Editor.
Doing things this way makes sense if you are using an existing template in a PSD file, because you just need to re-work the rules in Divine Elemente.
Highlights of the features
Let us highlight a few of unique and useful plugin features:
A pre-existing Marketplace for themes and community
There is a tendency to create themes not just for one person, but for many. This is done by publishing it in the Marketplace. The marketplace for Divine Elemente is similar to the marketplace using Envato and Themefores. They flow the same way, using the same principles. Every transaction is partitioned a little and brought to both the author of the theme and the team at Divine Elemente.
Customized Fonts with Typography That Uses Advanced Pixel Precision
All the data that comes in text format originating in a browser is placed in the exact location using identical fonts as those used in Photoshop. Also, 95% of all settings, such as bold and italics, are converted into the CSS and HTML languages and files.
Divine Elemente is the only plugin that uses pixel precise positioning for texts. Other similar products usually place text formatting in as close a position as they can, but they are not using pixel precision technology.
These days it is the tendency of graphic designers to use slides that change, like a slide show, for their themes. For instance, within the Header section, for portfolios, three to five images are shown, or in the case of a personal blog, the creator might want to display a few endearing photos of family or experiences. The Billboard function allows this to happen, using superior animation using JS.
This is a great feature. Using it, the designer can make simple adjustments with ease to any elements on their pages, and place objects such as widgets for Twitter, Facebook and YouTube on them. They can use a WP CMS to directly edit PSD content.
Creating Multiple Pages
You can choose to develop multiple pages in Divine Elemente using just one template. It lets you bring together navigation items using either new pages or ones you are already using. You can bring custom content into each page you create, or pages defined by the theme already in place.
Stretch for a Seamless Background.
This is technology that is uniquely offered through Divine Elemente and nowhere else. What it does is allow the creator to apply background images and textures in a seamless manner, so that no signs of imperfection are showing. This is most useful for paper, wood and leather simulation.
960 Grid Tool
This tool allows the designer to create a professional look and feel to the theme of their web pages. This grid keeps things in line and lets the layout be organized in the best way possible.
SEO friendly, W3C valid and semantic code
Summing up assure HTML & CSS code is very readable and hasn’t any quality issues recognized.
In conclusion, the Divine Elemente plugin is synergy at its best, bringing together both potential and technology, letting a designer or even a blogger produce themes for blogs and websites that can be published in mere minutes.
