    Hi Jemz,

    We usually create web design through Photoshop (psd file) and then we use Dreamweaver for coding. But there's actually a lot of tools you can use for designing and coding. Just go through to lots of training/tutorial that you can find here in the internet.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,
    Justin Durano

    You'll need some kind of tool/program to create any site, but a simple code editor is best, where you write the code yourself. Some tools (like Dreamweaver) can write the code for you, but they always produce pretty rubbishy code and are difficult to work with. So the ideal is to learn code yourself.

    You'll get different advice from different people. But my preference is to start with a good book that teaches you HTML and CSS. There is a lot of information online, but it's all in bits and pieces, so I prefer books, because they are usually more comprehensive and more carefully written.

    SitePoint has some good ones, like this:

    There are lots of others, which you can find on Amazon. Most I have not read, of course, but each one has lots of user reviews, which I find very helpful.

    If you going to lear coding and are open to using other software than just Dreamweaver, I would suggest using Netbeans. The editor is far better for coding compared to Dreamweaver.

    Start firstly from books about CSS and HTML, They will help you to get a minimum knowledge base about coding. And then try Dreameaver, Netbeans, 960grid system.

    There are number of tools available for designing web according to the latest technological trends.But the most important and widely used tools are:

    * Photoshop
    *Illustrator
    *Flash
    *Dreamweaver
    *Corel Draw

    Apart from these tools the most powerful tool is the expert designer himself who have a good taste for the web,creative and designing skills.

    Various tools are available to design an attractive website. As per the above discussion, code editor or tools provide help in creating a website but sometimes we remain confused with difficult task. Hence it's better to learn coding from a well known author books. I always prefer to join a coaching institute for learning and knowing the basic which elaborates on appropriate examples and practice.
