    Has anyone used sitegrinder to program their website out of photoshop? Looking for some feedback on ease of use, and how far you can go with flash like effects and such.

    Thanks

    I personally hate anything more WYSIWYG than Dreamweaver.

    It is. Anyone in this business who is serious about what they do will tell you to learn the languages if you want to make real websites. Until somebody codes a WYSIWYG that will clean up after itself and use compliant tags, which to the best of my knowledge is a long way off, you're simply shooting yourself in the foot using those --- even if it's for no other reason than the fact that search engines HATE messy code. :glasses:

    I'm not a programmer, nor am I interested in becoming one. I guess Sitegrinder is for people who need a simple, low cost solution. I was just interested in feedback one way or another...so thanks.

    HTML and CSS aren't "code", per se. They're markup languages.

    Programs are series' of commands that creates functionality (e.g. upload a picture, resize it, and add a link of it to your database).

    Markup is a text-based way of defining how something is laid out. It is an integral part of web design. If you don't know how to mark up a design, you're handicapping yourself as a designer.

    What you're saying would be akin to a programmer saying "I'm not a DB admin, I don't want to learn SQL" or an Architect saying "I'm not an artist, I don't want to learn how to draw."

    Sure, you could do your job in a satisfactory way using tools that make your life easier, but you'll never be as good or as efficient as someone who's dedicated himself to learning all the tools of his trade.

    So the point is, if you want to be a top-notch web designer, learn HTML and CSS. If you just want to be a graphic artist who makes second-rate websites, then don't. Up to you. :-)
