Windows 7: Which software to design professional website?

Which software to design professional website?

Hi everybody!

I would like to design a professional website to publish scientific editions. Can somebody recommend me about which software can I use?
And what are the basics to design edition website (e.g journal, books...)?
Is this "easy" task?
I have to say that I am not experienced in web creation but I want to invest myself in publishing.

Thanks for any help or feedback. I would appreciate it.

My first recommendation is to get a book on Web Design before you start using programs. There are literally a hundred software apps that will do the same thing for you.

If you want a recommendation, I use Dreamweaver CS5 to code and Adobe Photoshop CS5 for the graphic portion of it.

But again, pick up a book, first. Take a course at a local post-secondary school. You have to walk before you can run. In this case, you have to crawl before walking.

Depends a great deal on exactly what you want to do. I like and have used this for quite a few things to do with publishing;

If you don't want the learning curve, you might look into this, I've heard the commercial often. It's $5 a month for the basic, but they also host the site for you. I don't have any experience with it, just something to consider:

Up until CS5, InDesign's primary purpose was for print. It still is for print media, but it's getting its feet wet with some web tools.

I dont understand how you can take a psd and turn it into a website. I never really checked on PS but I never saw anything that show you the location of a layer. In Indesign you get to see the exact position of anything you want.

Learn HTML and CSS, as well have artistic skills. No "tool" or "software" can make an professional "anything" without the user having some kind of skill.
