This guy wants me to make a webpage for his company, and said he'd buy me a web design program if I needed one. He doesn't seem shy about price, either, as he thought a couple hundred dollars worth of a program wasn't a price to sweat over. Anyway, it turns out I don't have one, so here's where my question comes in: What're among the better-quality web design programs out there?

The two most popular ones for ages were Macromedia Dreamweaver and that one Adobe made… can't recall its name right now… But Adobe bought Macromedia… SO I suppose they got rid of their own crappy program and now just make Dreamweaver instead ^_^

Ah, here's some info on Adobe's version and whatever they've done to fix it/mess it up. The cost is there too.

Dreamweaver's always been a good program, it's worth getting.

Oh damn. That looks nice. I guess I'll consider this one, but I'll wait for some other posts just in case.

Dreamweaver (as Double O mentioned) is the way to go and is the industry standard for most web designers and employers.

Plus, I've found it to be easy to learn, fairly intuitive and works well with Photoshop (like when you slice up a template image in PS and export the HTML+images… dreamweaver handles it pretty well). Try out the demo version… but I'm certain you'll like this.

Good luck.

Some web design stuff can be done in Flash, and indeed, it can be very useful to have Flash and Photoshop on your computer as web design tools. I only dabble in web design myself, but I find Dreamweaver to be great. I can tweak the code with the HTML I know, it was easy to get the hang of, and you can do all sorts with it, from just making a page that little bit faster than you could with notepad and code, up to doing really clever stuff that I don't understand.

As everyone else has said; Dreamweavers your best bet. Not only is it powerful and versatile, but it is suprisingly really easy to use, so if you're not worried bout price, its win-win really.

Alright, I told him to get the latest Dreamweaver if it's not too much for him. Thanks, guys. =)

It's under $200 I think. Not too shabby.
