    iWeb vs Dreamweaver?
    Is it really worth simplicity of use (iWeb) vs flexibity of design (Dreamweaver) if you want to do a small web page? I've used Dreamweaver, which can be a bit daunting at times. I've never used iWeb however as it seems like it couldn't do what I wanted at the time. I know they're two completely different apps with one aimed at personal web page layout vs. professional web design.

    I was thinking of putting together a small online gallery for a personal photography business and didn't know if I wanted to go all out with Dreamweaver...but then again I haven't used the CS3 version yet.

    Any thoughts or experiences?

    Have you tried RapidWeaver? I find it to be a good balance between something basic like iWeb and an advanced program like Dreamweaver.

    If you search the forums, you'll find a way to get a copy of RapidWeaver for free

    I've used both but recently I've ditched Dreamweaver for iWeb simply because it's too easy not to use.

    Since I didn't get into the complex site building that Dreamweaver is capable of doing, I found iWeb made nice looking pages that worked for my situation.

    Personally, since I don't want to invest a bunch of time in building my site and don't use all the bells of Dreamweaver, iWeb really fits my needs.

    The CS3 version of Dreamweaver is almost identical to the CS2 version from what I have seen (I have not spent too much time on it since I got it).

    iWeb is great but I get sick of the same themes pretty fast...I often mix the two.

    I think if you really want a unqiue and nice looking page you need to put in the time with Dreamweaver. I'm lazy and don't want to spend the time so I prefer iWeb...I guess

    Yep, whilst the rest of the CS3 suite have some new interface features, DW is just the same as before, albeit with Intel support. I came across a bug or two but I was astounded to be greeted with info windows with OS 9 graphics :-o
