THe layout I'm starting is only css. I use the GIMP for the graphics in it.

HTML+CSS, but it's only pictures (screens from a TV show) right now, and a few links and a visitor counter (which I had an awful time trying to get to work with the cPanel WYSIWYG HTML editor!).

HTML and CSS, photoshop and paint shop pro for the graphics and webcoder and notetab pro for coding.

for the pictures, i usually use celebrity pictures and anime pictures

I use Netscapes Composer... it isn't any thing special but it is really easy, and I like it! I use tables... and tables only it is a very complex system.

I use a little bit of HTML: and a Lot bit of CSS, it makes life so much easier

Mostly tables and a little CSS. I use the Blogger service a lot, so editing CSS is a quick and easy way to change the whole website.

Well first off, I use Photoshop to create my layout. Then after finishing the layout, I would use photoshop to create my web site. It will code in HTML for me if I select the save>save as web (I think). Well anyways it'll code my web site for me, afterwards I use Dreamweaver to create my forms and frames and whatnot, then I use my web browser to check for any problems, both Firefox and IE. Then I would insert php codes into the page and see if they work. Then I sometimes would use Notepad to add more content. Smile

First, I find spiffy people/images to use. Then I destroy them using photoshop and then usually put a faded parchment paper for blends... plus a lot of brushes. Then I code it in, using HTML and CSS. I'm trying to learn XHTML, but for some of the coding I need to use php, so I use that too.

I use a bunch of inline frames so everything looks nifty too. And a lot of color. Wink

I use html mostly but actually, you shouldm't use html because everyone can see your source of the page, the codes and everything and easily modify your page. So, I am learning something different now.

I currently work with Macromedia Flash 7

Photoshop for desinging and slicing.

Ummm, where'd you come up with that? Sure people can view your source, so what?
Tieskevo

Sure, if you don't care if your text is an image. I hate sites like that when you want to copy paste something...
SamiTheBerber
I write all text with texteditor, text like HTML-codes and PHP, also CSS. Images I make with Gimp, it is good and easy to use, if you can you it Wink

I need to practice more with CSS and hope that next IE can support CSS right that most of people see my pages like I with Firefox ...
kurpol
I typically use photoshop and I am pretty fond of the Macromedia products. It all depends on the type of site and how much time I want to spend. If you want a good looking layouot I would stick to Photoshop.

I use Photoshop to create the graphics and DreamWeaver for the HTML and stuff...

Photoshop designing, than cuting it up with imageready into .png (i dont know why png, but it seems better) than i code it up with dreamweaver, ussually taking it appart and making it css.
littlegiant
I use Paint Shop Pro to work up the design and then I use the image slicer tool (if necessary) to hack it up into pieces that will fit into HTML table cells. Then I start coding it all up in HTML Kit (which I have completely decked with tons of custom-made plugins). I use HTML with a heavy dose of CSS and some SSI (when it's more convenient).

I've experimented heavily with table-less design (my main site even uses a table-less design) but quite honestly I'm still not all that excited about supporting standards and all that. Quite frankly I think it's a royal pain in the arse. But I digress...
dreamt_death
Depends what kind of site I'm making and the effort I want to put in it. I like to use photoshop, but I'm not really good at it yet. I mostly use div layer style layouts. But whenever I'm doing something simple I like to use tables.

I use Photoshop for images. Frontpage for HTML and Trellix for Lay-out. With trellix my HTML source can't be viewed. Only the framesets and robots not the actual page source. Very Happy
Nirotu
I use Div tags, and CSS and create my images with photoshop. Personally, i think this method makes it easier to modify your website when you feel something should be changed.
littlegiant
I see some have mentioned that they're concerned about hiding the HTML source. Frankly I don't see what's the big deal. Any designer worth his/her salt can take one look at any layout and take only a few minutes to visualize how it's done using HTML and/or CSS.

i recently used macromedia dreamweaver for coding html,fireworksand photoshop cs2 for designing and animation,flash mx 2004 for my flash designs.........

For image intensive web sites (such as my current one) I use Photoshop to build the main "shell" of the website, then slice it up and save it to html. I then make little modifications here and there, make the images background images and such.

Everything after the Photoshop I use notepad for.
