Question about coding

Let's say that I make a free form design of a skin in Photoshop. Just a random shape which I design myself. Could a coder properly code the file to operate as a skin or do I need to follow some kind of template? Are there any specifics in creating a modern skin or can you just make it any form you like and then code it?

So technically I could make a PSD of skin any shape I want. Then a coder can make it work?

Of course! Look at all the modern skins around here, they are all different shapes and UI's.

Well, you have to convert your PS image into various PNG images, and then the coder will put that into practice, yes.

I guess it depends on preference. I mean i do both, so my layered files get turned to png's anyway .

To cut the long story short then. Yes.
