I'm programmer, not graphic designer, but I have to design some Android application interface in Adobe Photoshop (or Illustrator).
I want to follow Google resources/guidelines for new Android applications.
Unfortunately - everything in these guidelines is measured in dp (denisity pixels). I know what a denisity pixel is, but I don't know how to deal with that in Photoshop (or Illustrator). I used to pixels, I have some experience in web design, I was always using pixels. I guess this is why my approach is wrong.
First - I created 1280x720 image and started drawing stuff but... I feel I'm doing it wrong. This is really painful. I have to calculate every size, margin, line spacing etc., I also have problem with setting up grids.
How can I improve my productivity?
