As you can see, with one click on the big CSS3Ps button, this free Photoshop plug in converts your layers by extracting the CSS elements. After conversion you can select the code elements you need and copy and paste where you want.
You can get the free downloads for Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Photoshop CS5 and CS6 and Adobe Photoshop CS3 and CS4. Don’t forget you’ll need a patch from Adobe before installing on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. You may already be familiar with other methods of converting layers to code such as Photoshop Version 13.1 and CSSHat, from a Prague start up (April 2012). This extension is compatible with Windows and Mac, costs about $34.99 (https://csshat.com/), you are paying the license fee perperson not per device, so you can save money.
