Export InDesign layers to Photoshop


Question

I have created the design of a website in InDesign (big mistake, I know...). The developer wants to have my layers in a Photoshop format. I do not want to start everything from the beginning. What can I do? Thanks a lot in advance !

um... I would HOPE the developer is using it as a reference point and plans to code what you have designed. I would request clarification on this and you could provide a .pdf file of the website as a reference.

If they are trying to slice the file for a website that is a bad idea.. You could always extract the site in an .xml file from InDesign or even do a couple of options such as:

The following would work if you're using Creative Cloud and have setup your document correct AND are using character and paragraph styles:

If you have built the paragraph styles correctly for the site you could even export out as an .epub, unpackage the .epub and pull out the .css and .xhtml files for the website.
