    I am a complete novice about web design. I do know basic html, like how make bold font and line breaks and page breaks...yada yada..

    I am considering learning web design and I was recommended a program called Dreamweaver.

    I would like to know your thoughts on the program and if a comp0lete novice can learn it or use it fairly easily.

    Also, what other software would I need to design grapics?

    Any help would be appreciated!
    :cheeky:

    The best software for designing graphics, IMHO and the opinion of many others on here, is PhotoShop. Photoshop, particularly 7, does an excellent job at allowing a graphical idiot like myself turn out things that actually look semi-impressive without a lot of effort or thought. The later versions of PhotoShop also come with a product called ImageReady, which allow you to "slice" your Photoshop image up into smaller pieces, and will even generate the code for a website for you based on those pieces.

    As far as Dreamweaver, I personally tried it once for about half an hour and hated it. Ever since, I've used a text editor called HomeSite 5. I prefer it since it colour-codes the HTML tags and things of that nature and will autocomplete tags so that you don't have to remember to. This saves me a great deal of time.

    Hope this helps.

    dreamweaver is my second favourite computer program (behind photoshop), it is a very good prog that you don't even need to know any HTML to use (not a good idea though :classic: )

    I have decided to go with Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Quark was the only other program that was heavily recommended but it is way too expensive.

    Quark is not for website design, anyway. It's for print design.
