You should really specify what templates are you talking about, you know it can be Photoshop design template, CSS template, layout template, Flash template... Wink

Everyone is different, but this is my advice.

First plan out the design.
Next you can start to lay it out using html/css and just like different colors to symbolize graphics (if you're using graphics)
Then make up the graphics and cut them if needed (like to make them stretchable). This should generally be done so that your layout can stretch at certain points, but areas that are like borders don't get messed up.

I recommend using a graphics program you like, if you don't use one, I recommend the GIMP.

And for html/css, just get something like notepad++

Most people will go for graphics first. Unless you're a master of codes like some people here in the forum (respected). So i suggest you use photoshop IF you do know how to use it. And then transfer all your graphics to a program like Dreamweaver (WYSIWYG). Life is made easy with these programs around

Last but not least, if you're new to all these, i suggest you learn from the internet. Visit tutorials, check out other people's websites ... piece by piece and you'll be able to get the whole idea. Wink

Someone, sometime ago told me: You can lear by yurself "this" in 10 hours, and someone can teach you in 1 hour the same.

Have you search tutors here?

you need to experiment of course, and you just need someone who knows the tricks a bit, who can answer some of your questions (not all of them of course, then you wouldnt be learning it yourself Very Happy)

dreamweaver as a WYSIWYG program is more of a try it to learn it, most of its uses are pretty direct, more of a shortcut program letting you code more easily, at least as i see it. IMO using photoshop to create the design template then editin it with notepad is the easiest way to do it. Besides: Photoshop + dreamweaver = ultra ex :X

Well I have just sat down with the getting started manual and done the turorials and I now see the light. There is no stopping me now!
