I see few people create the site/forum design in PSD and share the screenshot before coding it. What is that?

PSD is the Adobe Photoshop native format. When you design something and want to use it / modify it on Photoshop later, you will have it is as a **Name.psd** file.

It is like Word files having .doc extension. Photoshop similarly uses .psd

Sorry i was not clear in my question. When you ask a designer for theme the designer designs it in Dreamweaver (i think in the past) nowadays they give the design they have in mind using a psd file. How does this work.?

It is like we do in PowerPoint. Photoshop allows to make mockup web pages much more easily than coding. So if we want to `draw`` a theme to show the designer, we can do it in Adobe Photoshop like make slides in PowerPoint.

Another advantage of using a PSD is that there are tools which can convert a properly prepared PSD file into HTML and CSS.
