Looking for more of a best practices when creating PSD mockups

Who uses PSD mockups?

The absolute BEST advice I can give is… learn HTML5. It will take 1 day. Then, learn CSS. Try to make everything flexy/responsive, ideally build for the smallest screen first (lowest common denominator) and progressively enhance the page until you get to a max width of say 1250px.

Do as much as possible in CSS, use vectors (SVG) after that, then use photos… sparingly and with small file sizes.

Other than that… the sky is the limit. You’re only limited by your creativity. Ooops, I mean your ‘friend’ :)
