Web Design Tutorials

Gday guys,

I want to start working on a web page but i havent really ever had a go at making one before. I will probably be using Frontpage unless someone can recommend something else. Does anyone know any good Frontpage tutorials? I dont want to use a template, i want to actually make my own page but will need a few tut's to get me started.

Cheers guys

Re: Web Design Tutorials

I would actually use dreamweaver mx, just find it easier then frontpage myself. but use whatever you are comfortable with, xara is also a nice program i have been playing around with, especially menu maker

Re: Web Design Tutorials

ok I'm going to suggest starting with notepad. Best tool for webdesign if you want to learn how to code.

If you want to learn design tips as opposed to fiddling with code, www.wpdfd.com (Web Page Design for Designers) is a good place to start.

For designing graphics, there are a plethora of design tuts available, www.psworkshop.net is a good resource.

Hope this helps.

Re: Web Design Tutorials

i started out using frontpage, but i use dreamweaver mx now, its got a good combination of build-by-visual and build-by-code, and the fact every unique identifier within the code is coloured differently really helps. these are a couple of sites i made using dreamweaver; theyre pretty basic but i reckon the overall look is appealing.

note: the fct one was just a demo thing and isnt operational

Re: Web Design Tutorials

I guess this could be a good start??

but i agree i would go with Dreamweaver for building sites. I wouldn't recommend the point and click method. Get into some hardcore coding. HTML isn't hard but it is good to know the basic tags. You have more flexibility that way. Eventually you can move on to javascript, flash etc

Re: Web Design Tutorials

My own website for my car was all done with Dreamweaver (though it's DW4 and not MX) and once I went through the inbuilt tutorials in the program I found it a real gem for preffesional looking stuff from a lazy bastard work ethic.

Re: Web Design Tutorials

Its shareware unfortunately, and it does cost a packet. www.macromedia.com

Depending on which way you're inclined i'm sure you could readily source it through the different mediums available *taps nose*
