Website templates are generally raw materials that need be customized/edited to function and reflect your brand identity. Customizing or editing a website template can include modifying the content, inserting graphics, embedding business logo, changing up styles, changing up images, changing links and much more. It’s quite easy to customize the modern templates because there are HTML editors designed for that. Examples of website template customization tools include Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Go-Live, and FrontPage. There are two main ways to edit or customize your clothing websites templates:
1. Edit the content of your clothing websites templates
When you buy a clothing website template, the template provider gives you an index.html file, too. You’ll need this file when you want to edit your template content. There are two primary tools you can use to edit your template’s content:
·You can use a text editor to customize your clothing websites template’s content
A text editor is the best tool to edit your template’s content. It leaves your HTML code clean and doesn’t incorporate more junk codes. However, you’ll need technical skills to edit your template’s content with a text editor. Typical examples of text editors include Notepad, Editpad, Arachnophilia and Note Tab Light.
·You can also edit your template content using HTML editors
The good thing about HTML editors is that anyone can edit their template without HTML skills because most of them have a user-friendly interface and are easy to use. Typical examples of HTML editors include Dreamweaver, Go-Live, and FrontPage.
2. Edit graphics and images of your clothing websites template
Some of the tasks involved in editing images include changing the color, adding or changing the text in the images, and adding or removing image layers. To be able to edit the images on your clothing website template, you’ll have to make use of the PSD file. When buying a clothing website template, the template provider will provide you with a PSD file. However, some template providers charge you an extra fee for that. PSD file is created using Adobe Photoshop. Typical examples of software that you can use to edit PSD include Photoshop, Ulead PhotoImpact 7 & 8, Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 and ImageReady. To learn more about PSD file, head to adobe.com.
If you don’t have the two programs to edit your clothing websites template, you can contact your template provider to send you BMP files, as opposed to PSD files. The advantage to a BMP file is that it can be edited using any editing software out there.
