How to convert designer's Adobe Illustrator files to Drupal templates
January 30, 2011 3:40 PM Subscribe
I'm a web programmer (LAMP) working on a project where a designer will give me about 30-50 page mockups in Adobe Illustrator, and I'm supposed to build a set of Drupal templates and modules out of them. How do I do so - what's the typical procedure?

I haven't worked with Adobe Illustrator files before; and usually actually get at least a set of XHTML/CSS files to work with when working on a project. I am familiar with Photoshop, Fireworks and Dreamweaver.
I could just outsource the job to someone who specializes in this, but would rather do the work myself. What's the typical procedure for moving from Adobe Illustrator to a set of templates? Are there tools that automate part of the job? Do I need Illustrator to get this done, or would Inkscape be good enough for handling the initial files I get? Is there a good tutorial or two out there that you could recommend I go through?
