For anyone stumbling upon this today looking for options, AdobeXD or Sketch are far superior to Photoshop mockups as they can be made client-side and interactable. XD can be ported to a phone through the XD app, but fonts need to be installed on the phone to display correctly. Adobe Comp is a mobile app that you can create mockups in on a phone (no pc ...

Piece of cake. Take screenshot with white background like normal. Convert white background to transparent with ImageMagick. To convert white background to transparent with ImageMagick, do this in the terminal: convert screenshot.png -transparent white screenshot-transparent.png

I would say that they are being fairly reasonable. As regards the structure, you need to provide them with a basic outline of your site. Think about what your top level sections would be, such as: About / Services / Track Record / Contact. And then if applicable, any sub-sections for those, so About might have History / Our Team, things like that, perhaps ...

A "Graphic Designer" is not a "Website Designer". A graphic designer only designs the look of something. Someone has to provide /everything/ else, and that is reasonable.

I write line-of-business software so I spend a lot of time dealing with our clients' web companies. In my experience you can divide web companies into maybe four different variations. In ascending order of price: One-man-bands - someone who does web-design and came at it from either the design-side, or the coding-side and can do whichever isn't their ...

I assume that you want your website to provide more business for your company. You've hired a web designer, not a marketer or sales person. You need to either provide marketing and sales information to the designer or give the task to someone else. Your designer was hired to build a site. To make sales (conversions) on your site you'll need marketing ...

The designer is just asking you input to perform his job. He can't guess what you have in mind and what are your requirements/priorities. The level of detail that you want to provide is certainly negotiable. Can range from "make a site for MyCompany" to "I want all hyperlinks underlined in dotted green, left centered, and here is the text of page Customers"....

This completely depends on you and your designer. Most likely your designer is asking for the following things: What you want on your website. This includes what the purpose of the website should be and any important information related to that purpose, such as your company information that you want people to have, information about the services that you ...
