Hello, I'm using Bootstrap grid (1170px) when working in photoshop, and I'm curious which one of the 2 options on the img is right. In CSS there is -15px side paddings making it 1140px wide but I don't know if it apply for menu items - for their boxes. I'm guessing the second one is right, but I'm not sure.

Than you for any advice.

Both are right. It's up to the client as to which one they prefer.

And don't use bootstrap for your menus - the code is awful. In fact the whole bootstrap CSS is a bloated monster. You can achieve the same results with a tenth of the code.

In any case, why are you using photoshop to build the layout? I thought this method of web design went out the window years ago...

I only use Bootstrap GRID to make layouts, not code with Boostrap. In fact I'm webdesigner, not developer, so I just make layouts and others code it (still can't figure out how to call myself, since it seems everybody tend to merge designer and developer together - you say you are webdesigner and they want you to go code in javascript). Question if Bootstrap is garbage, well, few people still using it so I would say it's about personal preferences - like all frameworks.

 

And why I'm usign "outdated" photoshop? Well, because most clients want .psd format file. Beside that, what would you suggest to use, I tried few WYSIWYG SWs like Macaw and I must say that workflow is quite awfull, you need to focus on both design and code in the same time and thats often really hard and tiresome (both brain hemispheres).
