= psd2html GIMP Plug-in =
This is a Python plug-in for the GIMP that will extract images and text out of a .psd file (or other layered formats) and create an .html template from it. I don't think this plugin will ever fully replace a human coder, but it should be able to do 50-90% of the work.

Right Click on and save to your computer.
== Supported Platforms ==
This plugin has been confirmed to work on:
Ubuntu 10.10 x64
Windows XP SP 3
It should work cross platform, file a bug report if you can't get it working.
NOTE: If you're a Windows user there's a good chance you have Python 2.5, and this plug-in requires Python 2.6, which can be downloaded here: Also, I've heard GIMP doesn't currently work with Python 2.7, and definitely doesn't work with Python 3.0, so for now make sure you have Python 2.6.
== Installation ==
Before installing the script, you will need:
Python 2.6 (NOT 2.7+ (unless you're SURE your version of GIMP supports it) NOR 3.0+)
GIMP 2.6
Python and PyGTK+ will need to be installed before GIMP in order for GIMP to recognize that it can use Python plug-ins and install the necessary components. If GIMP is installed before Python and PyGTK+, it may need to be reinstalled.
If GIMP is currently running, it will need to be restarted after installation.
=== Linux ===
If you're using Linux and your default version of Python is 2.7, your package manager should contain a version of GIMP that's been compiled to work with Python 2.7, so it should work fine.
On Linux, copy to one of the following directories:
~/.gimp-<GIMP version>/plug-ins/ (just for your user)
/usr/lib/gimp/<GIMP version>/plug-ins (system wide)
Make sure is executable.
=== Windows ===
Here are download locations for the dependencies: (Choose "Windows x86 MSI Installer (2.6.6)") (Choose "pygtk-all-in-one-2.24.0.win32-py2.6.msi") (Choose "GIMP for Windows (version 2.6.11)")
On Windows, copy to one of the following directories:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\.gimp-<GIMP version>\plug-ins (just for your user)
C:\Program Files\GIMP-<GIMP version>\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\ (system wide)
== Usage ==
Open up a PSD file using GIMP.
On the image window, go to Filters > Web > Convert to HTML.
Choose your options and click OK.
== Feedback ==
Bug reports and feature requests can be left at the Issues Tracker on GitHub:
== Development Resources ==
There's a really good GIMP Python Plug-in development introduction here:
Also, you can open up GIMP and go to Filters>Python-Fu>Console to open up a Python console within GIMP. In the GUI that pops up there's a Browse button you can click that gives you a list of installed plug-ins and library items.
