Web Design Tools

Happy New Year to all of you! Sorry for the time that I’ve not been posting any tutorials due to the holidays. I took a long vacation starting Christmas till New Year’s. Anyway, I’m now here and will continue posting helpful tutorials for all of you guys. I do hope you get something in this one.

Here are some essential tools that you need to know before you star Web Designing. Well there are still a lot of them but we just need the most important right now.

Web page design on HTML
A markup language used to structure text and multimedia documents and to set up hypertext links between documents, used extensively on the World Wide Web. If you want to be a web designer you have to learn this tool. Because learning how to use HTML properly will make you a better web designer! Sure you can create a web page using Dreamweaver or other WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors.

But creating HTML pages using Dreamweaver is kind-of like delivering a speech through a translator: Although you might know exactly what you want to communicate, you can’t always control the end result… why? Because your thoughts and ideas have been translated by someone else (in this case, Dreamweaver)! In the ideal situation we would translate our thoughts ourselves… but to do so, we need to learn the language (in our case, HTML and CSS)!

Website Hosting
When you’re ready to publish your website online, you have to get a Web Hosting. They store your data and show your website to surfers. There are many reliable hosts who will host your website for a fixed amount each month/year. This is useful if you’re prepared to fork out money for your minuscule little project on such extras as “shopping carts” and scripts which you are never likely to use. Otherwise, get free hosting.

Website Design Using Photoshop
The web design using Photoshop is one of best the way’s of creating the web sites. Web designers have the most effective way of making the web sites promotional, for that designing a web site front page is most important.

Web design templates gives the best possible way of providing the content layout .It tells us the way that how you can get your design to make your website most productive commercially.

Website Design Using HTML Editors
HTML Editors are applications to actually make web pages, to program HTML code. Before you ask, yes, web development is a form of programming. A web page is a piece of software code, written with an editor and displayed (rendered) by a browser.
Web development involves not only writing code, but also visual design and content management.

You’ll find that different HTML editors support different aspects of this workflow. At one extreme you’ll find editors that let you only manually type code, on the other complex development environments that can modify thousands of pages at the click of a button.

Strong Imagination
Of course if you want your designs to be eye-catching, you’ve got to have this important tool. Besides, the tools above don’t really matter if you do not have a strong imagination.

    What other graphic design tools does my boyfriend need?
    My boyfriend is going to college for graphic design. I gave him a graphic design tablet for his birthday and he already has photoshop. I don’t know a lot about graphic design. Are there any other graphic design tools will help him in college and also use in his future job?

    Adobe Illustrator is the program that most graphic designers use.


    It can get a bit pricey though. I can’t find the main price on the site without buying the suite with all the other programs.

    Not knowing what his school requires makes this a difficult question to answer. As far as professional tools, someone already mentioned Illustrator. Knowlege of how a page layout application works could be helpful, so, a program like InDesign or QuarkXPress are more tools. Those whos direction is more illustrative may find Painter the tool to use.

    Then think of all the types of 3D and animation tools some designers use, plus graphing tools and word processors.

    The thing is, you could potentially spend thousands of dollars on software and MAYBE find the one or two he needs for school, or, maybe NONE of those will be required and he’ll have to shell out money to buy something else. (I once ended up in a design class that taught using CorelDRAW. Luckily I had Corel at home, but I was really looking to learning the Adobe product line.)

    His best bet is to wait until classes start to find out what softwares they’ll be using and then see which ones will be helful for him to have at home. Plus, as a student, he might be able to take advantage of the deep student discounts offered by most software manufacturers. Adobe, for examples, discounts their products by about 50% with proper student ID.

    For now, he may be happy for you to buy him a few more USB "thumb" drives. They are relatively inexpensive and are very handy for moving files from computers from one physical location to another.

    The Adobe Creative Suite is industry standard these days. It comes with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, etc. Get the latest version of it and you really don’t need anything else, unless he wants to get into Flash animations. Flash is made by Macromedia and you can do more than make animated internet ads with it. Games and applications are possible as well. A graphic interface HTML compiler/editor is great, as well. GoLive comes with the Adobe Creative Suite, but others are available. Wish him luck as this field is getting quite crowded and competition is fierce.
