    Question What Web Design App??
    Hey,

    I am a mac switcher, well I have been using a g4 iBook for about a year now and I love it. I am changing my main beige box for a lovely new 20" core 2 duo iMac. I need some advice on what webdesign software to use.

    I have previously used dreamwever for the layout part and then I edit my code and I have used photoshop for graphics. I cannot afford these apps at home and I want to get legit software. I have looked at rapidweaver and iWeb. I love the look of rapidweaver and I am happy to spend some mony on software, just cant afford 500 lol. I have read some reviews of nvu. For my graphics i intend to use GIMP cause I like the look at it.

    So come on, here is your chance to get your two cents and let me know exactly what software I should be using!!!! so come on, opinionate me!!!

    Any suggestions welcome,

    Steve :yinyang:

    Rapidweaver seems to have a good reputation. Also, screencasts online has a good video podcast with tutorials on rapidweaver.

    I have the trial version of RapidWeaver and it's so easy to use....don't have iLife '06 so I haven't used iWeb.

    Goto ebay buy the Photoshop 6 version box sealed (old stock) then goto adobes site and get the upgrade to CS2 for a small fee, saving you alot more money than the full version!

    Creating websites with RapidWeaver is pretty easy but it has limitations. If you want to implement your own code, it offers less or no support.

    What's wrong with NVU? When I was using Linux it was my favourite Application for web design.

    AFAIK you have to use macromedia flash to create flash.
