One of the more remarkable new features in Photoshop 13.1 is its ability to automatically generate CSS code.…So you can take a text layer or a shape layer or entire group and copy the CSS code associated…with it and then paste it into your web document.…So it's a chance to have Photoshop do some of the work for you, instead of having to…code everything by hand.…Now this example that I am about to show you comes from my buddy Justin Seeley, who does…the course Photoshop for Web Design at lynda.com.…
So a brief shout out to him.…I am going to switch over to this document, and you can see that it's got this solid blue…header, and there's no button around Buy Now.…Whereas, if we go ahead and switch over to the mockup inside of Photoshop, you can see…that Buy Now has a button around it and both it and the header have these red to dark red gradients.…So what I am going to do here, the first thing you've got to do is confirm that Photoshop…is ready to export the clipboard.

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
