  • @MephistonX Would be good to have that posted as an answer, even if it's 'correcting' the question. – Yisela Mar 21 '13 at 22:35

    If possible, it would be helpful to post a screenshot of the layout so we can help identify elements that could potentially be re-worked as CSS elements to reduce using images as a crutch. Also, PSD file size should not be indicative of the size it will be when formatted as a web page. PSD format offers very little compression. When properly structured in HTML/CSS, the page should be drastically smaller in filesize – JohnB Mar 21 '13 at 23:57

    This question is essentially asking "How do I build web sites?" A valid question, but way too broad for SE. – DA01 Mar 22 '13 at 16:00

for a start you won't/should'nt be using your psd on your website. you should be saving out elements of your psd (as compressed files such as png-8s etc.) and combining them with HTML & CSS to create the website - this will drastically reduce the total load of the website. Also what dimensions are you working to in your psd - as they may be too large for web use (equally what dpi is your psd set to - for web purposes 72 us the standard)
